Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, stated;
“Let food by thy medicine and medicine by thy food”
Good nutrition is the key to a healthy and balanced life. To a holistic physician, the adage, “you are what you eat” extends further to “you are what you can digest and absorb”. You can have the best possible diet, but without good absorption, your body may likely be undernourished and lacking in the vital nutrients needed for it to function at its optimum. Herbs are invaluable at aiding this process, they help by strengthening and toning the digestive tract, allowing the body to absorb the essential nutrients from the foods we eat. Time and again, dramatic improvements have been seen in a person’s energy and vitality just by improved digestion and absorption.
Dr Deen will usually discuss nutrition and lifestyle habits as part of your consultation. If your diet needs attention, he will aim to help you to adapt your eating habits to a diet that supplies your body with the nutrition it needs. Moderate exercise and advice on how to achieve restful sleep will also be discussed. This ensures a well-nourished, properly functioning mind and body and energy and stamina are brought back up to optimum levels.
