Healing Your Body Through Whole Foods

Uncategorized Mar 16, 2022
 

Show Summary: ”The power of how we feel emotionally & physically is at the end of our fork.”

 

The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted physical effects on those who caught the virus. But physical effects are for those who got sick. Meanwhile, the rest of the world struggles with psychological impacts like depression and anxiety. What can we do to address these physical and psychological issues? Do we meditate, change our routines, and take medicines to cope? Or can we also turn to our natural medicine - food? But it isn't about fad diets or being an extreme vegan or an extreme carnivore or even restricting yourself from eating certain foods. It is just about knowing which foods are good for your body. 

 

In this episode, we are super thrilled to have Dr. Uma Naidoo. She is the first woman "triple threat" in the food and medicine space since her skills are the perfect mix of the professionals that this world needs at our present time: a Harvard-trained psychiatrist, a professional chef, and a trained nutrition specialist. Simply one of a kind, she shares how we can have healthy lifestyle changes starting with food to reverse our illnesses and optimize our physical and mental health. 

 

Listen now and remember to share the episode with your family and loved ones.

  • It is a well-known fact that in many physical conditions, if you work on a nutritional plan and change up your diet, that can impact change.

 

Can you dive into that a little bit more about the gut-brain connection?

 

Dr. Naido 10:18

 

  • The gut and brain, organs that are far apart from the body but originate from the same cells in the embryo, divide up to form organs, and then they remain connected throughout life. 

 

Are there specific nutrients or specific foods for mental health?

 

Dr. Naido 32:46

 

  • Prebiotic foods because most people think they have to take a supplement. But prebiotic foods nurture those gut microbes, and they can be found on simple foods like garlic, leeks, onions, the allium family, bananas, oats.
