Why Traditional Diets Are Better
Are non western diets better than what we in the United States eat? Is the key to better health found in more traditional diets from around the world.
If we are to answer that question, we should begin to look at whether non-westernized diets have better gut health than American diets. It seems most non-westernized diets (using that term as a way of eating rather than weight-loss) regularly consume a large amount of non-processed foods. Now, these unprocessed foods are naturally fermented and act as natural probiotics, which is done through fermentation and uses microorganisms and yeast to convert the sugars in the foods into natural occurring carbon dioxide and beneficial lactic acid, which, of course, protects the foods from spoiling and can add some health and taste benefits to it as well.
Does A Diet Have To Be Diverse?
It shouldn't be surprising to know what you eat affects mood. In fact it regulates behavior. But how does it compare with global vs. american diets?
There has been some promising research that has indicated once people take probiotics, their perceived anxiety, how they view and handle pressure, and their intellectual outlook can be enhanced, compared with those who don't include probiotics of their diets. But there have been different studies comparing various non-US diets like the Mediterranean diet and the Japanese diet to a typical SAD diet. Standard American diet.
What is the best way to explain the connection between gut bacteria and mental health? Does it have to do with sugar and why sugar is bad for your brain?
I think it's important to address what I believe is common sense when it comes to looking at how your nutrition affects your brain. Now, if your brain is lacking of good-quality nutrition, or free radicals or damaging inflammatory cells are floating around there in that cranial space of yours, can't you see how there might be an increase in brain tissue that's degrading? That seems like common sense, right? And what's fascinating is that for several years, there has been very little research that attempts to look at the ways foods affect moods and vice versa.
The Heart-Brain Diet Is Essential Nutrition For Health
How important is nutrition for healthy brain development? It is so important that nutrition and brain development in early life is common core whatever style of eating you and your family prescribe to eating. So what is the best nutrition for brain health?
One of the most fascinating areas of brain and gut fitness is what has been termed dietary psychology. Now reflect on what this truly means. Your brain is continually 'on' in that it takes care of your thoughts, actions, your breathing, heartbeat, your senses. It is working 24/7 even while you're asleep. It's the fact that it is constantly doing something that you would understand your brain calls are in need of a constant supply of meals and nutrition.
What Does It Mean To Be Holistically Healthy?
Is there a way to look at holistic nutrition as a foundation for a healthy lifestyle? The bottom line is that is formed around "healthy eating" habits and nutrition, but how do we do that? I'm going to be discussing the second pillar of health necessary to be holistically healthy, and that's being nutritionally or digestively strong.
Whether we realize it our not, our nutrition is ultimately tied to physical health. I believe it is so critical that it should have it's own pillar and could actually stand alone. Part of this is because getting the full value of nutrition is customized based on each individual's age, sex, activity level, and body chemistry; every is totally different. This in order for us to strengthen this pillar, careful attention should be placed on your diet and that you give specific focus on digestion.
Why Holistic Health Is Much More Than Preventing Illness
Today I'm going to start a new series about holistic health and how that "whole health" starts in your belly and then radiates out from there.
Health is often understood as the absence of disease or sickness. Now, while this definition is valid, it actually lacks the comprehensiveness of the broader approach. Start assessing your holistic health and wellness on a wider spectrum.
What do gut bacteria eat? Are our gut bacteria powerful enough through foods to rule our mind through the nutrition of the foods we directly eat?
