With an alarming number of people today suffering with health issues, both mental and physical, this Latin term meaning “healthy mind in a healthy body” should be a motto for life. At the core of this approach lies the importance of nutrition and unfortunately, too many people choose to disregard the very real connection between food and health. Many believe that someone else, a mysterious ‘they’, are making sure that the food we eat is ‘safe’ regardless of what choices we, ourselves, make in the supermarket. Or, perhaps more likely, we prefer not to address the question at all, merely looking to the relevant Health Service provider to ‘pick up the pieces’ by giving us a magic pill the next time we get sick as the only option.
Of course conventional medicines undoubtedly have their place but the use of nutrition to combat ill health, both mental and physical, must not be ignored. By taking responsibility for our own health we can start to establish a clear route towards the natural state of a healthy mind in a healthy body. The objective today must be long lifespan combined with a state of body and mind that is fully compatible with a high quality of life and should not merely be about just delaying the date of our deaths. Let’s face it - having a long life beset by chronic symptoms is no fun at all.
The first step is to take responsibility and educate ourselves on the importance of nutrition.
