Nutrition is an input to and foundation for good health and development.
Health and nutrition are the basic of human right.
We eat because we are hungry, tired and your stomach is rumbling. Sometimes we might also eat because we are bored, sad or happy, just because it's lunchtime, or because that chocolate-covered donuts looks so good.
Those are some of the emotional and physical reasons why we eat, but do we ever put much thought into why our body needs food? Why is good nutrition important?
We will try to answer to this important question and why good nutrition prevent disease and promote health.
Better nutrition means stronger immune systems, no illness and better health.
Healthy children learn better.
Healthy people are stronger, are more productive and more able to create opportunities to gradually break the cycles of both poverty and hunger in a sustainable way.
Better nutrition is a prime entry point to ending poverty and a milestone to achieving better quality of life Freedom from hunger and malnutrition.
There is many forms of nutritional deficiency, especially in Third World countries associated with mortality in infants, young children and mothers.
However, the world is also seeing a dramatic increase in other forms of malnutrition characterized by obesity and the long-term implications of unbalanced dietary and lifestyle practices that result in chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes.
All forms of malnutrition's broad spectrum are associated with significant morbidity, mortality, and economic costs, particularly in countries where both under- and over nutrition co-exist as is the case in developing countries undergoing rapid transition in nutrition and life-style.
Every living thing and any food item has its own energy.
Every living thing and any food item has its own energy.
The science of nutrition, researches deeply on content of foods, especially from a chemical point of view.
Food is more useful to our body if contains many minerals and vitamins and gives us the right physical energy.
If it is undeniable, however, it's not the only way to determine if what we eat is healthy for our body, mind and spirit.
I would like to to introduce a fundamental concept that physics has amply demonstrated. Every living thing and any food item has its own energy.
The energy propagates as a wave and can be measured.
Some scientists, including the most famous engineer Simoneton, research to define what energies are benefitial or harmful to the human body. The first fundamental step was to measure the human body's energy by using scientific equipment (a counter Gaiger, Wilson and the ionizing dosimeter of Bovis graduated in angstrom) because the body emits a measurable radiation (expressed in the form of color and sound) at around 6200-7000 Angstroms, a person in good health should have a vibration at least 6500 angstrom. At lower values ilnesses and incorrect food attitudes were detected.
The importance of environmental radiation in human nutrition.
Environmental radiation has the power to influence the world, in every single thing around us, visible and invisible.
Each person is subject to the influences of all radiation.
We must understand the all things including objects, people and events emanate vibrations.
I am not talking about only the famous x-ray or nuclear radiation, but also about cosmic radiation and human vibrations alike.
Is it true that from our diet we absorb the essential nutrients for our life and it is equally true that we absorb their vibrations. It is not sufficient to take calories and nutrients from food in fact it has been demonstrated in many experiment, that when we eat synthetic foods, or modified food which are nutritionally correct but energetically nulled, does not guarantee optimal development, or healthy long aging.
Nutrition (also called nourishment or aliment) is the provision, to cells and organisms, of the materials necessary (in the form of food) to support life.
Many common health problems can be prevented or alleviated with a healthy diet.
The diet of an organism is what it eats, which is largely determined by the perceived palatability of foods.
Dietitians are health professionals who specialize in human nutrition and they are trained to provide safe, evidence-based dietary advice and management to individuals (in health and disease).
Clinical nutritionists are health professionals who focus more specifically on the role of nutrition in chronic disease, including possible prevention or remediation by addressing nutritional deficiencies before resorting to drugs.
A poor diet can have an injurious impact on health, causing deficiency diseases such as scurvy and kwashiorkor; health-threatening conditions like obesity and metabolic syndrome; and such common chronic systemic diseases as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis.
Nutritional science investigates the metabolic and physiological responses of the body to diet. With advances in the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics, the study of nutrition is increasingly concerned with metabolism and metabolic pathways: the sequences of biochemical steps through which substances in living things change from one form to another.
Carnivore and herbivore diets are contrasting, with basic nitrogen and carbon proportions being at varying levels in particular foods.
Carnivores consume more nitrogen than carbon while herbivores consume less nitrogen than carbon, when an equal quantity is measured.
The human body contains chemical compounds, such as water, carbohydrates (sugar, starch, and fiber), amino acids (in proteins), fatty acids (in lipids), and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA).
These compounds in turn consist of elements such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, manganese, and so on.
All of these chemical compounds and elements occur in various forms and combinations (e.g. hormones, vitamins, phospholipids, hydroxyapatite), both in the human body and in the plant and animal organisms that humans eat.
The human body consists of elements and compounds ingested, digested, absorbed, and circulated through the bloodstream to feed the cells of the body.
Except in the unborn fetus, the digestive system is the first system involved. In a typical adult, about seven liters of digestive juices enter the lumen of the digestive tract.
These digestive juices break chemical bonds in ingested molecules, and modulate their conformations and energy states.
Though some molecules are absorbed into the bloodstream unchanged, digestive processes release them from the matrix of foods. Unabsorbed matter, along with some waste products of metabolism, is eliminated from the body in the feces.
Studies of nutritional status must take into account the state of the body before and after experiments, as well as the chemical composition of the whole diet and of all material excreted and eliminated from the body (in urine and feces).
Comparing the food to the waste can help determine the specific compounds and elements absorbed and metabolized in the body.
The effects of nutrients may only be discernible over an extended period, during which all food and waste must be analyzed.
The number of variables involved in such experiments is high, making nutritional studies time-consuming and expensive, which explains why the science of Human nutrition is still slowly evolving.
The SOULFOOD practice allows one to prevent problems, complications and eventual dysfunctions of the human body even through a regulated and monitored diet, regarding each individuals personal needs. It is indispensable for us to do this, other then delegate to others our personal health, it is important to enter a prevention and responsibility for one’s personal wellness.
Eating the right food can help prevent psychic and physical illnesses and eventual and potentially harmful pharmaceutical intake, we must give our body the chance to choose the right foods.
To cautiously feed ourselves with a certain type of foods we gain control of our wellbeing not just physical but above all, spiritual. The choice of foods is therefore born within us. If we enter a continuously more in-depth search for our true self, we can therefore afford to choose the right foods that grant us health and happiness.
The realization of our true self is only achieved if we develop a harmonious connection between the three aspects of life: the physical, the psychological and the spiritual. If only one of these aspects is neglected, all others will be automatically slowed.
To nourish ourselves in a balanced and creative aspect (for instance, with diverse tastes, colors, dressings and different cooking methods) allows us to control our thoughts and consequently, our actions and character.
There are foods that generate positive thoughts and emotions and foods that favor hyperactivity, the effect and consequences of strong tastes (such as sweets, dry meat etc).
For example, the excessive intake of alcohol leads to lack of willpower and concentration.
Choosing the right foods that calm and sooth the body and mind helps to express oneself more openly and consents a sane spiritual growth. It is known to all, than through foods one has to first consume all nourishments, from those energetic (proteins, lipids, carbohydrates) to those not energetic (vitamins, minerals and oligoelements), in amounts and proportions that allow our organism to process and function correctly in all attributes and be healthy. The synergy of various components harmoniously found in Health Center I.R practice, has a positive effect on one’s health. This gave birth to the concept of a functional diet, that has a revitalizing and positive effect on ones organism that surpasses the simple “ability to nourish”.
That means that our research is to find the ingredients, that interact with one or more physiological and psychic functions of the body and are well set up to favor a good healthy state or to prevent growth and cure certain pathologies. We all know that life on earth is sustainable through the light and warmth that is given to us by the sun. The sun is the common adhesive of all the agricultural products that grow in a warm and luminous atmosphere, colors are stereotypical to certain places on earth that’s why agricultural colors are found on tables and resemble art.
In preparation of food, colors play a vital role in their daily routine and this, even thow we don’t often realize, is able to influence our moods, characters, health and wellbeing. We use colors to define our emotional and physical state, to part from the rituals of daily life.
Ancient civilizations already took benefit from colors knowing their effect on mental and physical processes in many fields of human healing. The ancient Greeks used the colors derived from minerals, stones, crystals.
Even the ancient Egyptians, Romans used the colors as a treatment against disease. In India the Ayurvedic medicine has always taken account how colors affect the balance of the chakras (energy centers) associated with the major glands of the body.Well the Chinese entrust their well-being to the action of the colors. It is argued that the color can be absorbed by the body, spirit and soul. Our body absorbs color through nutrition, skin, eyes and the chakras. Modern Studies have discovered that the colors present in food, such as pigments present in vegetables and fruits, have not only Visual function, but produce beneficial effects on the whole organism.
These pigments are called Phytonutrients. Include many substances that have important functions for psycho-physical health. according to their color play different actions:
all the vegetables and red fruit (tomatoes, red peppers, cherry, strawberry, watermelon, redcurrant, raspberry, etc.) play protective actions towards the heart, strengthen memory and protect the urinary tract.
All the vegetables and fruits yellow/orange (apricots, peaches, yellow carrots, peppers, corn yellow, melon, pumpkins, pineapple, oranges, mangoes, papayas, kiwi yellow, etc.) have properties that strengthen eyes, heart and in general all the immune system.
All green vegetables are rich in chlorophyll (salad, celery, spinach, asparagus, Zucchini, peas, Arugula, basil, Green apples, avocados, broccoli, cabbage, etc.) play a protective action on bones, teeth and eyes besides a purifying function. Furthermore the phytonutrients in these green foods seem to have the properties to help reduce stress and fatigue in addition to being able to prevent various forms of cancer.
Belong to the white onions, garlic, shallots, cauliflowers, fennel, White peaches, etc.. The phytonutrients in this category facilitate proper assimilation of fat content in foods and help fight cholesterol.All the vegetables and fruits, violet color as aubergines, figs, grapes, plums, blackberries, blueberries, etc. contain numerous phytonutrients, including anticianine and phenols that play a protective action of the urinary tract and have a function antinvecchiamento against skin, loss of memory as well as preventive action against certain cancers.
Cannot be surprised that fruits and vegetables enable to have curative and preventive factors in reintegrating, restoring and maintaining the necessary balance of all our functions physical, psychic and spiritual. Moreover, the disappearance of our boards of vegetables and fruit has led to the emergence of most modern diseases.
Are increasing metabolic and circulatory disorders, there is no longer a person having digestive tract in order. Despite all the well-being we live in a health condition often disrupted by functional alterations with smiling superficiality, you attach to this pace of life gnawing.
We observe that supermarket land devoted to vegetables and fruit, comparison with other foodstuffs, such as cakes and Bacon, is very small. Despite the ongoing scientific discoveries and disputations on hygiene, unfortunately everything about our food is neglected.We are forced to eat in a hurry and mostly outside the home and standing thinking and planning activities that await us, without the slightest consider food with which we are fueling and if this is really that accommodates your metabolic, hormonal, nerve and spiritual of our body.We are forced to eat in a hurry and mostly outside the home and standing thinking and planning activities that await us, without the slightest consider food with which we are fueling and if this is really that accommodates your metabolic, hormonal, nerve and spiritual of our body.
None of the aspects of human life, as we have repeatedly said, is to be regarded as unrelated to the others, and that is why all aspects of biological, psychological and spiritual are seen as manifestations of a single whole. If the food must provide vitality and health, this food must represent the man-made path that is summed up in its history, from the primitive era to the current one (from tirailleur to nomad, breeder, craftsman, worker, employee).
Why Soulfood is addressed to all people, especially to those who are increasingly sensitive to search of well-being. To all those who love culinary novelties, from simple and refined taste, and also to all those who love the healthy oldest and versatile cuisine of Mediterranean culture; and who says "I'm wrong, and then eat", but you eat at least well, with health and with taste.
Soulfood ecological is a happy marriage between the Sun and Earth, between sky and sea, between light and colors. Is the Union of many cultures, the fruit of knowledge in combine elements with gestures and rituals, traditions, art and imagination. In the ritual Alchemy of preparation, Soulfood relies on your sensitivity careful in choosing us and that we choose, you who, danziate with the energy of our gestures and will merge in food so that they become even nourishment of awareness and of love.
