How do our diets really affect us?

There are multiple benefits to correct nutrition. Correct nutrition is essential for the maintenance and health of you and your body. It is known that good nutrition can provide mental health relief, promote sleep, and increase energy. Proper nutrition supplies the basic needs of the body for calories and nutrients; it should also reduce the risk of disease, fortify the body’s defences and healing mechanisms, control weight, increase concentration, improve the complexion and increase our quality of life. Our nutrition is an important determinant of how we feel and how we age. It can also function as medicine to influence a variety of common ailments. Without the correct nutrition, the body will not have the required energy for all of its function, from the beating of the heart and the elimination of wastes to the transmission of electrical and chemical signals in the nervous system.

Another benefit of feeding the body with the right nutrients is the increased energy and lack of fatigue. Food is fuel for the body. If you are not currently following a nutritious diet, you may notice that you will go through spells of fatigue throughout the day. Feelings of fatigue could be due to an abundance of sugar in the diet. Sugar is known to harm the body in many ways: including raising the cholesterol level and increasing digestive difficulties, such as indigestion, acid reflux, and problems with bowel movements. Sugary food and foods that are filled with excessive amounts of fat can lower your energy throughout the day and limit the energy you can produce. Since fats digest more slowly than other molecules, they cannot provide the body with a constant source of fuel. Sugars also promote higher blood sugar levels, which can leave the body feeling tired once the initial sugar rush is gone. Diet that limits sugar intake can leave the body feeling energised and vigorous. It is also known that excessive sugar levels force the body to store sugar as fat, causing you to gain weight. It is also important to avoid sugary, high fat foods because of the damage it can do to the biggest muscle in our body: the heart. Research provides us the evidence that certain foods do increase the risk of heart disease and other conditions, whilst eating a healthy; balanced diet can actually reverse the signs of aging in our heart. By avoiding unsaturated fats, the heart can keep pumping for a lot longer. As all the body’s blood flows through the heart, it is essential to keep this muscle as healthy as possible, so that you can receive fresh, clean blood to function. When following a nutritious diet the intake of sugar will be limited, therefore, limiting the risk of health issues associated with eating too much sugar.

  • Nutritional Therapy - As a Clinical nutritionist I focus on the role of nutrition in chronic disease, including possible prevention or re-mediation by addressing nutritional deficiencies before resorting to drugs. A poor diet may have an injurious impact on health, causing deficiency diseases such as scurvy and health-threatening conditions like obesity and metabolic syndrome and such common chronic systemic diseases as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and osteoporosis. Most foods contain a mix of some or all of the nutrient types, together with other substances, such as toxins of various sorts. Some nutrients can be stored internally (e.g., the fat soluble vitamins), while others are required more or less continuously. Poor health can be caused by a lack of required nutrients or, in extreme cases, too much of a required nutrient. For example, both salt and water (both absolutely required) will cause illness or even death in excessive amounts.

  • Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle.. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are many benefits to waxing versus other forms of hair removal. It is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time. It is a long-lasting method. Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for two to eight weeks. When hair is shaved or removed by depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. With these methods, hair tends to grow back as a rough stubble. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit regrowth that is softer.
