Health Tip #23

WEEKLY HEALTH TIP - By Mrs. Best/P.E. Teacher - Health Tip #23 - Since 1998, I have been studying and researching nutrition. There is one documentary that I feel all parents should watch with their children. The documentary is called, “Fed Up.” This documentary discusses the changes that the food industry has made throughout the last 40 years.  Our food has changed a lot since then. If you desire to understand how to feed your body with nutrient-rich foods, then “Fed Up” is a must see. The documentary can be found on Netflix.

I have read many books about nutrition over the past 20 years. Currently, I am reading a book by Mark Hyman, M.D. The book is called “Food: What the Heck Should I Eat”. He has dedicated his career to identifying and addressing the root causes of chronic illness through a groundbreaking whole-systems medicine approach known as Functional Medicine. He is a family physician, a four-time New York Times bestselling author, and an internationally recognized leader in his field. Through his private practice, education efforts, writing, research, advocacy and public-policy work, he strives to improve access to Functional Medicine, and to widen the understanding and practice of it, empowering others to stop managing symptoms and instead treat the underlying causes of illness, thereby also tackling today's chronic-disease epidemic. I have attached a link to a chart from the book, which shows what foods to eat and not eat to aid your body in physical healing and wellbeing.
