Diet is a very important part of living and a nutritious diet helps that only a balanced diet is not sufficient for good health. It recommends that specific bodily conditions require specific diets. It looks at diet as an alternative therapy and treats the body as a combination of three different factors called vata, pitta and kapha. These factors represent air, fire and water respectively. A healthy boy is one in which the three elements are perfectly balanced which can be achieved through diet. When any one of the elements is disturbed the body becomes prone to diseases, correcting the diet can cure it.
Each of us are individuals, no two people are alike. We eat different foods, exercise at different rates and times, and consume different amounts of vitamins and minerals. We all require the same basic foods such as proteins, carbohydrates and fats and vitamins, minerals and enzymes; yet, it is determining the right amount of each substance for each individual that helps him or her fend off disease. Proper nutrition is an essential aspect of diagnosis and treatment. Nutrient-related disorders can be cured once nutritional balance is achieved.
Disease can result when the balance among all of the foods and nutrients we take or avoid is disrupted. Health can be restored once you begin to take in a proper essential balance of foods and nutrients - vitamins and minerals.
At the HEALTH WORLD, we focus on the role of proper nutrition in relation to health. Nutrition comes first in medical diagnoses and treatment. Given the individuality of patients’ genetic disposition and the interaction of the environment, sometimes the universal recommended dietary allowances of nutrients could be inadequate.
