Nutrition is the very foundation that ultimately allows you to achieve optimal health. Just like a house needs a foundation, so does your body. Every cell and system in your body runs off carbs, proteins, or fats.
Different body parts require either carbs, proteins, or fats for energy and function. For example, the brain needs carbs to function. But have you ever noticed brain fog after a white bread or pasta-laden meal? That comes from the gut-brain connection. We often cannot digest well-processed foods, and those carbs end up creating an inflammatory response in your body. What happens in the gut happens to the brain.
Wheat and gluten are two of the most significant cause of inflammation in the body. Now, when you eat, say, the correct portion of carbs from a sweet potato, you don’t have that same inflammation response, and your body can focus on what you need it to instead of giving all its energy to fighting the inflammation.
Essentially, the wrong foods can be detrimental to your health, while the right foods can heal and fuel your body for optimal health. Food is medicine and a routine part of Dr. Washatka’s treatment. It includes looking at your nutritional foundation and making changes to support your investment in healing.
