Balanced Diet

Eat Natural food as much in its natural form as herbs and medicines.

Motivation to eat natural healthy food as herbs as medicine to live healthier, longer with quality of life, will change our taste buds and we will find only healthy foods more palatable.

Research finding confirms that it is possible to train our brain to cure addiction to junk food and make it craving for healthy food.

Balanced Diets Explained

Balanced Diets are an essential part of Overall Health

Be clear that health is not in capsules, tablets, bottled, supplements, and herbal medicines or in curing - be it proven or unproven. Instead, curing becomes essential when the body catches diseases which are in almost cases, mostly due to lack of correct knowledge on health and nutrition and on factors which impact health, and or, lack of motivation to eat and live healthy.


Our health is not only impacted by what we eat and how we live, but also by what our parents ate and how they lived.


Incorrect knowledge on healthy life style and on what is healthy and unhealthy food, and consumption of unhealthy, nutrient poor, calorie laden fiber missing, and highly processed fast, convenient Junk food promoted by our present corrupt social, economy, health care system is the main culprit in causing those 75% of diseases which modern human are suffering from, are otherwise, actually avoidable.





Keeping note of the science evidence based, peer reviewed, suggestions we will use our Buddhi to investigate and explore individually suitable balanced diet, which works as medicine for staying away from diseases, improvement in health condition, building up a strong health, for healthy conception to healthy birth, optimal growth, and for slow down aging.

(Buddhi is a word of the Indian ancient Pali language which is herein defined as the constant pursuit for raising knowledge, alertness, skeptical thinking, increasing analytical power, to explore, improve further and control the cognitive ability of mind, to avoid preconceived ideas to perceive things as they are, to gain wisdom for understanding correctly and making wise decision.)


Discussing with medical doctor on changing diet pattern and following medical advice will be an essential part of the strategy, as some food can interact with the medicine if a person is under treatment.

We may arrive at conclusion on individually suitable healthy balanced diet and lifestyle which may slightly vary from that of the researchers, or government regulatory authorities because both remain under pressure of political, economic and social system. Also, at times information on health and nutrition accepted by government, scientific communities, organization and are published in some much respected peer review journals, and become main guideline, but later such information or guideline sometimes are either found faulty’ or become controversial like ‘Salt controversy’ and the latest confusion on ‘Saturated fat’. the past and the present stand of AHA (American Heart Association) on consumption of egg.

Besides, poor quality of research studies and involvement of industries in the researches are among some other factors due to which our opinion, though based on peer reviewed research studies, may differ.

For example Scientists say that death begins from stomach. Well while there is no denial of this fact but we find that it is personal character, lack of motivation and correct information of people on health, nutrition and on prevention from diseases which are the precursors in causing digestive disorder, acceleration of aging, leading to diseases, morbiditiy and early mortality:

Alcohol isn't a nutrient. On the contrary, because alcohol may interfere with nutrient absorption, drinkers may not benefit from all the vitamins and minerals they consume.

Another example is that since the past decades, scientists based on their research findings were suggesting to drink alcohol in moderation for good health.

no alcohol

But we say no to alcohol. Alcohol isn't a nutrient. On the contrary, because alcohol may interfere with nutrient absorption, drinkers may not benefit from all the vitamins and minerals they consume.
We retain that Alcohol cannot be good for health because it is sense and science to note that cigarette, alcohol, opium or cannabis, are not food like tea and coffee.


Alcohol has no health benefit

The latest reliable honest research studies published in highly respected journals and were the main headlines of magazines and newspapers of the world, clearly suggesting that alcohol - even moderate amounts - has no health benefit.

It is well known to leaders, politicians and researchers that alcohol drinking even in moderation is bad for health. But they will dare not clearly say the truth because, simply, both the powerful leaders and most of the scientists remain heavily influenced by the present Death Marketing and Death Management system of our society.

Let us Understand and Explore an individually suitable balanced diet

Everyone has different dietary needs and needs an Individually Suitable Balanced Diet

Food in its natural form and even when cooked in a healthy way, will contain nutrition and medicinal properties. Nutrition means vitamins, carbohydrate, protein, fats and minerals and water. Whereas the fiber (which is the most important and most neglected properties of food) and the other active chemicals in the food like flavonoid. polyphenol, saponin, sterol and stanol are called phytochemicals which are very powerful naturally occurring medicines in plant and algea like mushrooms.

The main point to note here is that phytochemicals and nutrition contained in the natural food when eaten, they work in combination to enable the body to select and absorb the nutrition and the phytochemical as per the then time of nutritional, anti-oxidant and medicinalrequirement of body for maintaining an optimal physiological, biological function and to whet its immune system to fight diseases and stress, to heal itself, to prevent and repair damages in the  cells and genes. (That is why the extracted form of phytochemicals and nutrition and anti-oxidant in capsules or other processed forms do not provide long term health benefit, and rather are hazardous to health… is the conclusion of the decades of various honest research studies.)


Q: What is a balanced diet?

A: A balanced diet is one, which contains carbohydrate, protein, fat, (MUFA-- mono unsaturated fatty acid; PUFA -- poly unsaturated fatty acid; and SFA -- saturated fatty acid), vitamins, fiber, mineral salts and water in the correct proportions.

 

Q: Why should we eat a balanced diet?

A: Because the body will succumb to diseases either due to malnutrition, or improper and excess eating.
Body needs natural food and fluid to live healthier longer exactly in the manner a car needs fuel for the engine to function. We love our car and listen and follow very properly to the manufacturer in selecting the right kind of fuel, and on do’s and don’ts for maintenance of car. But, unfortunately, when it comes to our body we do not listen to the nature which is the manufacturer of human body.
ape-to-man Human evolved to procure its nutritional and phytochemical / antioxidant requirements directly from eating natural food, not from supplements and junk food / fruit juices and other junk fluids.
