- Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food. But to eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness.
Most chronic disorders in the western world are a result of environmental factors, the most important of which is diet. The food choices you make have an enormous affect on your health. If you have been diagnosed with conditions like diabetes, heart disease, depression, anxiety, crohns, IBS, colitis, arthritis, thyroid conditions, allergies, or are starting to developing them. Working with natural foods, and select supplements can have a profoundly healing effect.
There are many natural treatments available for certain neurological conditions like Autism, Aspergers, PDD-NOS and ADHD. There is growing research that indentifies a gut-brain connection in these neurological disorders. Healing the gut is the first step towards recovering.
Numerous other studies have found a relationship between gut dysbiosis and autism. Gut dysbiosis occurs when the inner ecology of the intestinal tract is imbalanced. This means that the amount of disease-causing bugs outnumbers the good guys, like Lactobacillus acidophilus.
The goal of any diet should be to remove problematic foods, and introduce nourishing ones. Removing things like artificial food colours, MSG, casein, gluten and soy can be overwhelming. With support, the transition can be smooth, simple and exciting. Removing certain triggers from the diet does not lead to deprivation as long as it emphasizes fresh, whole, unrefined, organic ingredients. The culinary possibilities are endless when on this path to recovery.
