Western medicine delivers relief for most discomfort quickly, but all pharmaceutical drugs have a negative effect on your body. Ibuprofen is hard on your kidneys and acetaminophen taxes your liver. Sometimes, prevention is the best cure. In other words, nutrition can make an impact on your energy levels and overall well-being.
Furthermore if you’re prone to muscle cramps, there’s a chance that your electrolytes or ions are off balance. We get plenty of sodium in our diet, but potassium is harder to obtain. Eating foods like bananas, tomatoes, potatoes, and yogurt can help you get enough potassium. Since both potassium and sodium play a role in signalling your muscles to contract, having a healthy balance of both ions is important.
Brain Fog and Fatigue
Another key point is low blood sugar and low iron causes fatigue and light-headedness or brain fog. Eating whole grains can help replenish blood sugar. Stay away from processed sugars (like candy) as those types of carbohydrates are absorbed and used by the body quickly, leaving you hungry.
Nutrition And Iron
Iron helps carry oxygen to your cells and low iron levels affect brain function. Red meat and dark leafy vegetables, like spinach, contain high iron levels. If you have hypertension or other cardiovascular issues, skip the red meat (and all the fat that comes with it) and stick to the vegetables.
The Body Knows What It Wants
The saying, “you are what you eat,” isn’t far from the truth. Your body naturally craves what it’s missing. So listen to it and stay away from processed foods (they tend to throw off the signals). You’ll find that you’re able to alleviate daily discomforts with diet instead of drugs.
The most compelling evidence in supporting my nutrition and well-being has been reducing gluten and dairy. This has had a huge impact on me and my family. Therefore we are striving each week to eat healthy and not rely heavily on pharmaceutical medicines and where possible investigate the most suitable a natural alternative that we can use.
