Optimum health is more than health.
Most people consider themselves healthy unless they are ill or overweight, being a kind of borderline health.
For optimum health you need to achieve vitality, mental clarity, and improved digestion, making it possibility to prolong life, meaning to live longer and enjoy those extra years as a healthy human being. In many ways and therefore analogue to anti ageing is a study and concept of how to achieve a long and healthy life. Once realised, that some people live a very long life, one simply had to come to the conclusion that it is possible to duplicate this longer lifespan by studying these people.
At its basis the importance/value of living in harmony/balance with nature, not to destroy it, but use it, taking into account our place in the circle of life. Over dependence on land-based food sources often lead to deficiencies in micronutrients and trace elements.
Back to now, comparisons of population groups has demonstrated a close and consistent relationship between the adoption of the affluent diet (Northern European and U.S. general populations) and the emergence of a range of chronic, non-infectious diseases, such as coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, various cancers, diabetes mellitus, gallstones, dental caries (cavities), gastrointestinal disorders, and various bone and joint diseases.
A number of nutrition and health experts now believe that the relationship between rapid changes in a population's diet resulting in rapidly changing disease and mortality profiles and reflected in general health/problems.
A Publication online, in the journal Nature Neuroscience, scientists at the Scripps Research Institute in Florida did fed rats a high-fat, high-calorie treats -- bacon, sausage, cheesecake and so on -- and watched the rodents bulk out dramatically. The junk-food rats gobbled down twice as many calories as "the control" rodents fed on a more balanced diet. "When they removed the junk food and tried to put them on a nutritious diet -- what was called the 'salad bar option' -- they simply refused to eat," said Paul Kenny, an associate professor. "The change in their diet preference was so great that they basically starved themselves for two weeks after they were cut off from junk food.
"Kenny and graduate student Paul Johnson focussed on a docking point, or receptor, on the surface of neurons that binds to a "feel-good" brain chemical called dopamine.Dopamine is released by pleasurable experiences such as sex, food and narcotics. "These findings confirm what we and many others have suspected, that overconsumption of highly pleasurable food triggers addiction-like, neuro-adaptive responses in brain reward circuitries, driving the development of compulsive eating," says Kenny.
The research, based on lab animals, bolsters long-standing suspicions that addiction to pleasure stems from over stimulus of a key reward mechanism in the brain, its authors say. "Common mechanisms may therefore underlie obesity and drug addiction."
Health is a multi dimensional choice and important for the realization of your full potential and slow down of the ageing processes. We do known "Pollution, stress, fatigue and bad eating habits all affect the body. A good diet will help to keep healthy.
All it takes is a little work in the 'here and now' to keep you in a good shape for later.
Good nutrition will enhance the structure and function of all organs in our bodies. Our brains, muscles, hearts, arteries, joints, bones, skin, hair, hormones, immune system, vision, digestion, kidneys, liver will carry out their jobs much better. Metabolically, our lipids, and sugars can be optimised, thus providing more overall energy, minimize weight problems, and improve sleep. These nutrients improve mental function, and memory. They reduce depression, harmful effects of stress, and mood swings.
Stimulation of the digestion, allows a better assimilation of sugars and fats, thereby reducing the level of cholesterol. Helps to assist in proper thyroid metabolism and greater overall circulation.
While seaweed itself does not prevent or cure any type of disease, a large body of research suggests that it may provide the extra nutritional fuel that your overworked immune system so badly needs in today's polluted, toxic world. Last but not least bind and remove toxic substances from the body.
Studies show that currently about 1/3 of the total population in the EU has one or more chronic diseases and 10% of those effected, two or more known as multi-morbidity.
Despite all warnings and the fact that the courses are man made/caused no real proper action taken place. (Worried about commercial interests being at stake.) Just like as in the case of cancer, not cause by nature or product but interference and changes in the way we live and do not forget the environment as such.
