Back To The Food Basics

If you suffer from food allergies then staying allergy outbreak free is your primary goal. This can seem like a daunting task, and to many an apparent losing battle. The truth is though that it's not only doable, but it will prove to be a winning battle in more ways than you may realize.

Allergies are a big problem in this country, and studies show that food allergies just may be the primary cause of much of the all too commonly suffered health issues Americans are facing. The importance of a healthy diet cannot be stressed enough, and our shift over the years from home cooked meals made from fresh all natural ingredients to the age of processed foods, and the increase in diagnosed cases of food allergies is no coincidence.

Our bodies were designed to eat what nature provided, a smorgasbord of natural organic whole foods (or simply put un-fooled around with), so it should come as no surprise that when we make a shift in our diet to mainly processed foods closer resembling something from a chemists lab rather than a garden that the state of our health (as a species) is quickly deteriorating.

It's been a long time since most people have really stopped to analyze what exactly it is they are eating. Our bodies are designed to run on a handful of core nutrients (vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, amino acids, fats, proteins, carbohydrates, etc.) not MSG, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Chemicals, Preservatives, Food Colorings, Refined Sugars and Flowers or whatever else these lab rats (with no concept of diet and nutrition) can dream up.

All it takes is years of depleting our bodies of these core nutrients and replacing them with toxins to severely compromise our state of health. A weekend immune system can lead to diseases, chronic pains, allergies, and most of the other health issues we as a civilization are facing.

So get back to the food basics and give your body what it needs to survive!
