An Ayurvedic quote says, “If diet is wrong, medicine is no use and when diet is correct, medicine is of no need.” There are thousands of natural chemicals in food which affect our health, energy and vitality. A healthy lifestyle and diet change is often prescribed by health professionals who are treating patients suffering from a multitude of diseases and conditions.
Basically, food has the power to encourage or alleviate inflammation in the body. It is always better to get our nutrients from our food, but we have to remember that every single thing we eat either heals or harms.
These are some healing foods which experts say should be the cornerstone of a healthy and sustainable diet:
1. Cruciferous vegetables
Leafy green are high in micronutrients and help to prevent cancer as they inactivate cancer-causing molecules.
2. Nuts and seeds
An excellent source of protein, fats, fibre and vitamin E which can help to lower the risk of heart disease.
3. Organic protein
Organic foods have lower levels of pesticides, aren’t made from manufactured herbicides and are produced more sustainably. Try and eat organic when you are choosing your meat, fish, eggs, beans, lentils and protein powders.
A good source of protein and B-vitamins, they are the perfect breakfast meal as they keep blood sugar and cholesterol levels low – plus they keep you fuller for longer.
5. Season fruits
Make sure to pick fruits that are in season, that way they will be more nutritious and purifying. Also, the riper they are, the more powerful their healing properties.
Help to stimulate digestion, draw toxins from the body, clear skin and put the body in a more alkalised state.
7. Dark chocolate
Because sometimes we just need something sweet! Dark chocolate has high levels of cocoa, which is a powerful antioxidant. Clinical trials have found it can also lower blood pressure and increase blood flow.
The ingredients in our beauty powders are 100% natural, vegan, dairy free, gluten free, soy free, have no added sugars and are non GMO (that’s a mouthful!).
They’ve all been picked because of their powerful healing properties and ability to repair and restore your body from the inside out.
