Healthy eating is one of the key aspects to living a healthy life. A healing diet should have you feeling better physically, boost your brain function, give you more energy, eliminate cravings, and improve sleep quality.
A healing diet provides the body with the many nutrients needed for proper function. Protein, fats and carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals need to be present in the right amounts for the body’s biochemical pathways to be effective. It should also limit those things that are damaging to one’s health, as much as possible ;).
It would be nice if we could get everything we need from food alone. But for most of us this is extremely difficult. Compared with previous generations, our food doesn’t contain the same amount of nutrients and we are dealing with more toxins than ever before. Supplements are often necessary to get the therapeutic amounts of what we need in order to heal.
