The Wonders of Nutrition: Most of today’s diseases are chronic degenerative diseases that originate from malnutrition. The link between diet and disease grows increasing significant over the decades as our modern food becomes more processed and the food chain gets more contaminated.We are seeing more people – and more young people – suffering from chronic degenerative diseases. Scientists are concerned that the children of today may die from these chronic degenerative diseases before their parents. That’s because children today are already the 8th generation fed on processed modern foods since the Industrial Revolution began in the 1760s. Their bodies have reached zero tolerance for any more processed foods. Nature is our healer and prevention is the best way out. This book “The Wonders of Nutrition” discusses how our genes and our bodies respond to food and a changing lifestyle. Nutrition works wonders when your genes harmonise with healthy food and a healing lifestyle.This book is dedicated to mothers, who nurture the health of our future generations. Roadmaps to Recovery: Nearly all health disorders have an underlying link to nutrition. It could be undernourishment due to eating refined and processed foods – as well as the products of modern agriculture – that lack adequate amounts of essential nutrients. It could also be the result of overeating or eating an imbalanced diet that does not provide nutrients in the optimal proportions. Even the practice of taking food supplements, which is intended to address nutritional deficiencies, can lead to nutritional imbalances. This link between nutrition and chronic degenerative diseases is becoming more critical as the modern diet becomes increasingly processed and artificial, while the food-chain and the environment becomes contaminated with the chemical pollutants. Many of these chronic degenerative diseases – including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, chronic inflammatory diseases, cancer as well as mental and behavioural disorders – have now reached epidemic proportions. Since these are acquired diseases, they can largely be reversed. It requires a radical change in diet – to remove those factors that cause disease and focus on those that support the healing process. A nutrient-rich diet of natural, unprocessed foods is essential. In addition, modern scientific research suggests that a major part of the solution lies in switching from carbohydrates to fats as the main source of energy. This book, Roadmaps to Recovery provides nutritional roadmaps for your journey towards recovery. You are the master of your destiny.
The B vitamins are eight water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism. Historically, the B vitamins were once thought to be a single vitamin, referred to as Vitamin B (much like how people refer to Vitamin C or Vitamin D). Later research showed that they are chemically distinct vitamins that often coexist in the same foods. Supplements containing all eight B vitamins are generally referred to as a vitamin B complex. Individual B vitamin supplements are referred to by the specific name of each vitamin (e.g. B1, B2, B3). The B vitamins often work together to deliver a number of health benefits to the body. B vitamins have been shown to: support and increase the rate of metabolism; maintain healthy skin and muscle tone; enhance immune and nervous system function; promote cell growth and division -- including that of the red blood cells that help prevent anemia. Together, they also help combat the symptoms and causes of stress, depression, and cardiovascular disease. All B vitamins are water soluble, and are dispersed throughout the body. They must be replenished daily with any excess excreted in the urine. Vitamin B deficiency can lead to an enormous group of health problems. This book presents new and important research in the field.
