Diet Making You Sick

Diet Making You Sick

Diet Making You Sick

If you are experiencing headaches, depression or hair loss, your food choices may be to blame. Before you subscribe to the latest prescription or over the counter remedy to boost your immune system, take a close look at what you consume in a day. The many symptoms you experience are often easily remedied by adhering to some basic food choice principles. Our stories carry common threads, but at their core are utterly unique and individual. It is always exciting to share with my clients that significant change can be as simple as adhering to basic food principles. That is GOOD news!

Everything consumed ultimately affects your body, from your skin to your digestive system. Take a look at what you have or have not been eating in order to draw relationships between food, digestion, energy levels and sleep patterns. Does your skin glow, do you have dark circles under your eyes and are you tired when you wake up in the morning?

Winter months and seasonal festivities leave many of us feeling immune compromised and robbed of vitality. Not only are the foods we choose contributors, but so are the amounts of food we tend to consume when less active or during holiday seasons. Many such indulgences leave you lying lethargically on the couch only to be searching through the refrigerator an hour later. If you suffer from any of the following, take note of the many relationships between symptoms and nutrition.

  • Diet too high in sugars, starches, carbohydrates
  • Low thyroid function – excess carbohydrate consumption

Blood Type Food Choices

Our bodies are predisposed to certain strengths and weaknesses according to our blood types and we can capitalize on these by feeding ourselves accordingly. The Blood Type diet provides an excellent outline of suitable choices, some of which must be modified for individual health concerns. By incorporating the complementary foods and eliminating the antagonistic foods, you promote the best possible balance for your immune and digestive system. Take a look at the following articles to become familiar with your blood type choices and learn to understand just why it is an important aspect of health.

The Avoid Foods

In addition to Dr. D’Adamo’s blood type recommendations, I like to modify these choices based on the individual. It is important to modify or eliminate the following: wheat, dairy, salt, soy, canola oil, fried oil, processed foods, coffee, caffeinated beverages, soda pop, carbonated beverages, sugar, margarine, baked goods, wheat-based pasta, alcohol, tobacco and any other foods unique to their situation.

Why is Recovery Important if I am Eating the Right Foods?

Recovery is a product I recommend to all my clients and is important for several reasons. Most degenerative conditions including heart disease, arthritis, cancer, periodontal disease, liver disease, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetes, gastrointestinal inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases and asthma have strong roots in poor eating habits. Years of abusing our system with less than beneficial food choices and life style produces what is called ROS, a damaging “exhaust” called reactive oxygen species. In smaller quantities, ROS play necessary roles in metabolic processes, however, when the production of ROS increases and/or the body’s ability to neutralize ROS decreases, the overall effect on tissues is destructive.

Benefits of Incorporating Recovery into Your Lifestyle

  • Repairs the walls of the GI tract
  • Assists with detoxifying both phases of the liver
  • Excellent for repairing leaky gut syndrome
  • Prevents the ability of parasites to establish within the gut
  • Chelates heavy metals out of the body
  • Builds resistance to allergens
  • Reduces inflammation from improper eating
  • Improves bowel function
  • Assists with proper insulin production
  • Indirectly promotes healthy thyroid function, glandular and organ functions

Recovery is a powerful disease modifying anti-catabolic agent (DMAC) bio-engineered to address degenerative and inflammatory conditions at the cellular level. Coupled with a Blood Type food program and lifestyle changes, Recovery is an essential component of any and every health program.
