About correct nutrition

my osteopath said... is a result of deficiency in vital nutrients from the inability of your body to digest and absorb them from your food. The body is not nourished.
my osteopath said... nutrients are needed by the body to function, some can be made and others need to be taken in the food we eat. These are often called essential.
my osteopath said... essential nutrients need to be eaten regularly in the normal daily intake of food. All food is vital and an often forgotten nutrient is water.
my osteopath said... as already stated all nutrients are vital but from experience it is becoming increasingly obvious there are three main deficiencies.
my osteopath said... the three most recommended nutrients are magnesium, zinc and pyridoxal 5-phosphate (also known as P5P - the activated form of vitamin B6).
my osteopath said... many factors can influence absorption but taking it back to basics, for better health your body needs to be balanced with the three sides of the Triangle of Health working together. The body is not nourished.
my osteopath said... According to Professor Bruce Ames, (professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of California, Berkeley, and senior scientist at Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute) "energy rich but nutrient poor diets will create a state that drives us to eat more to obtain adequate nutrients. In other words, the overweight and obese are constantly hungry because they are deficient in key nutrients". In other words under nourished.

About good health

my osteopath said... good health can be thought of as a three sided triangle, structural, chemical and mental, with each side working in harmony.
my osteopath said... all food is a chemical and your body is a chemical factory, and if some of the ingredients are missing your body will not function as well as it possibly could.
my osteopath said... this is very difficult to answer because the body is so complex but for example, if you were deficient in vitamin C you may experience laxity in your joints causing pain and discomfort.
my osteopath said... no the importance and significance of a balanced food intake must be a priority. This is where AK can help in identifying missing nutrients from your diet.
