How the food we consume affects daily health

Functional Medicine, Nutrition

You are what you eat.

It’s an old saying, but it could not be more true than it is today, especially with so many 'experts' out there saying one thing, only to say a completely different thing the next month. It is hard to know who to trust or what to believe.

One thing you can count on is your body will put out what you put in. We see people daily who make poor dietary choices and their health suffers because of it. But what food is the 'good' food? How do you get the daily vitamins and minerals you need? Who can you trust?

Where are your health-related messages coming from?

Take one look at our current health care system today. Would you say the majority of Americans are healthy? Many would answer that with a resounding NO! So who is controlling the promotion of that information? Who is responsible for the way we think about what it means to be healthy?

More importantly, who is responsible for your own health?

Many of us do not want to admit the painful answer: We are! You are responsible for your own health; plain and simple.

Here are a few questions we must ask ourselves:

  • What are we going to do to take on the responsibility of improved dietary habits?
  • What steps can we take as individuals, in Fargo-Moorhead and beyond, to take charge of our own health?
  • How can we maintain long-term health and wellness?

The first step would be pay attention to what you eat. What you put in your mouth on a day to day basis has a huge impact what your health will be like 5-10 years down the road. If you want to fix your health it starts with intention.
