Is your diet slowly killing you?
Chronic disease and obesity are becoming the norm in the western world, largely due to poor diet choices. But eating what isn’t best for us isn’t entirely our fault as the medical profession and the media have been giving us the wrong advice for years.
When I was 36 I was diagnosed with endometriosis. Like many health professionals (I’m a trained nurse) I believed that getting endometriosis was down to the genes I’d inherited. I believed I ate a healthy diet. I was eating plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit, whole grain bread instead of white and I didn’t eat much processed or junk foods.
How wrong was I!
Genes are not your Destiny
Did you know that 90-95% of your genes can be changed by what you eat?
Every cell in your body contains about 25,000 to 35,000 genes. The majority of your genes contain a switch that can be either on or off. These switches determine your health. For optimal health you want the right combination of on and off for you at any one time. Which switches are on and which off changes constantly in reaction to your environment. This is how epigenetics works and one of the biggest influencers is what you eat.
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to health and diet.
The epigenetic effect on our genes means no 2 people are the same, even identical twins. Yet many health professionals are still advising us all to eat the same things. It could be argued that they are being negligent in doing so. What you need is a health program tailored to your own unique body needs and this is available from a revolutionary personalised health program called ph360.
The science and research behind ph360’s personalized health app knows from your individual biotrend, health history and ancestry what foods are right for you at any one time. It knows that what’s good for you, is not necessarily good for me. Broccoli is a good example. It’s been widely celebrated as a must eat superfood. Broccoli has some great properties that will have a positive effect on the health of a lot of people, yet for 6% of the population it will have a detrimental effect on their health. The research also shows that climate changes how we react to food. For example I live in cold wet England, but my body prefers to be hot and dry. This means bananas are not good for me during the winter months as they cool my body down, but during the summer, or if I’m holidaying in Mexico I’m ok to eat them frequently.
Knowing exactly what foods are best for YOU, how to prepare them right now and what to avoid is the best way to switch your genes in the right direction for optimal health, but here are a few tips that are true for everyone:
- Cut out or at least reduce processed foods, sugar and artificial sweeteners, and hydrogenated vegetable oils
- Avoid GMO’s
- Eat organic as much as possible
It took me 20 years of trial and error to work out what my body needs for optimal health and I still didn’t have all the answers. But thanks to ph360 you can find out in less than one hour. Using ph360 I’m now healthier than I’ve been the whole of my adult life. I want you to feel equally as healthy. I recommend ph360 as it’s backed by decades of research and provides different recommendations for each of its users.
Eating the right foods that contain the nutrition that your body requires is not really a choice. It’s actually essential for you to avoid disease and to live a long and healthy life.
