To grasp the full value of nutritherapy today, we must first know that, since 1950, the diet of Western populations has become dramatically impoverished.
Fresh vegetables and fruits consumed today by the populations of industrialized countries no longer have the same nutritional wealth as before. And it's not surprising: the soils, once rich in minerals, have been exhausted by modern methods of intensive agriculture. According to a recent study conducted by the Institut de Veille Sanitaire among a thousand people, between 3.7 million and 7.1 million French suffer from malnutrition.
Not in 1850. But today, in the 21st century.
Many cases of diabetes, hypertension and depression are therefore aggravated by a lack of nutrients and the consumption of unhealthy foods. But unfortunately, often for lack of training, current doctors try to "cure" these diseases with chemical drugs that further deplete the body's reserves.
No side effectsFor example, aspirin is effective against a lot of pain... but it damages the stomach lining. It can cause severe bleeding, sometimes even ulcers in your digestive system.
Cortisone reduces inflammation, but it stimulates infections. In the long term, it causes osteoporosis, diabetes, hormonal disorders, facial swelling and skin problems.
Antibiotics will kill some germs... but they ravage the intestinal flora. They weaken the immune system, and can be toxic to the liver and kidneys. They promote the development of yeasts that can infect the mouth (thrush or candidiasis) and fungi in the genital tract.
Natural medicine, on the contrary, exerts its benefits on your whole body, and your well-being.
For example, when you take vitamin D to strengthen your bones, you also reduce your risk of cancer. Omega-3, which reduces cardiovascular risk, also improves morale (antidepressant effect) and reduces macular degeneration.
But be careful: these substances, even if they are natural, should never be used carelessly; in all cases, and especially if you are under medical treatment, you should seek the advice of your doctor before starting a new treatment. Because most natural products still contain active ingredients.
