Hippocrates, a Greek philosopher, who many say is the Founder of Modern Medicine, once said,
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”.
The team at Nourished Essentials and I firmly believe this.
Medicine does have its place, but contrary to what most of the medical industry will have you believe, most health ailments and diseases can be lessened or avoided altogether by just watching what you eat on a daily basis.
Think about it.
If you eat something that’s greasy and fatty you will most likely feel tired and sluggish after you eat and will take a nap.
On the other hand, if you eat something that healthy and vibrant like sauerkraut or fermented kimichi you will feel energized and ready to take on whatever life throws at you.
Maybe this is why the common saying you are what you eat is so true.
Which would you rather feel, healthy and energized, or tired and sluggish?
What's even more important than what you eat, is how that food affects your gut.
Hippocrates, also had another saying, “All diseases begin in the Gut”. The quote is just as true today as when it first was said over 2,000 years of ago.
You see, your gut, is where your food is digested and stored before it is passed into the porcelain throne.
It is one of the most important areas of your body.
It is where your body absorbs the nutrients from the food you eat and is where the majority of health issues stem.
If your body can't digest your food properly and can't get the nutrients it needs, all sorts of bad things start to happen.
Think of your gut as the engine of your body and the food that you eat as the fuel that drives that engine.
If you put the wrong kind of fuel in your engine, your body won't have the energy it needs to do the things you want it to do i.e. Spend time with family, travel, or just enjoy life.
Also, if you are not making sure to take care of that engine, by fueling it correctly. Your engine will break down over time. Just like it does in any car that doesn’t receive proper maintenance.
This is why Nourished Essentials Exist.
To provide you with the tools and information you need to give your engine, your gut, the best kind of fuel, and the best way to use that fuel so you can enjoy a healthy body for years to come!
