With our fast-paced life, it is easy to grab fast food, throw a pre-cooked meal in the microwave, order pizza or open a bag of chips and eat in front of the TV.
Most of us no longer appreciate food the way nature has presented it to us. And surprisingly, many would not be able to identify a cucumber, tomato or carrot plant in the field before it is packaged and ends up in the grocery store.
When we walk down the aisles of a grocery store, we see an abundance of foods. A high percentage of those foods are not real foods but are chemical preservatives.
In addition, what percentage of our foods are sprayed by harmful pesticides, injected with growth hormones and antibiotics or simply stripped from all the healthy nutrients to last longer on the shelves?
The modern industrial food industry has a direct negative impact on many chronic health issues, such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, digestive complexities, allergies, heart conditions, hormonal imbalances and even mental and emotional swings.
We might think that processed and non-organic meals are a lot more affordable, but the long-term negative impact on our health will far outweigh the short-term benefits.
At Avicenna Holistic Centre, we specialize in helping you eat healthy whole, organic and non genetically modified food. Our goal is to help you make it a central aspect of your lifestyle so you can enjoy a healthier and more balanced life.
