15. Nutrition and Healthcare
Nutrition is definitely health care but it is NOT competitive with the practice of medicine. It is an aid, it is preventative health care. To eat wisely is totally different than self-doctoring, which can be extremely dangerous.
Nutrition is not concerned with disease but is a study of building and maintaining health and it is important to realize that rebuilding health through nutrition is essentially a slow but highly effective process.
The body’s requirements include
- essential fatty acids
- complete proteins
- and every known vitamin and mineral
If only whole (unrefined) foods are eaten, even nutrients still unknown will also be furnished.
This will be discussed in more depth later.
|Side Note: Adelle Davis is one of my favorite
experts and authors. She wrote many books
on nutrition and health. Check out the book
that started me on my journey to learning
all that I can about nutrition:
