Nutrition is the study of how food and drink affect our body, paying attention to the important nutrients necessary to support human health. It is seen in the physiological and biochemical processes that take place in food and how the food in food provides energy or is converted into body tissue. This nutrient, which is an energy source for our body, is classified as carbohydrates, fat, fiber, minerals, proteins, vitamins and water. Proper nutrition means getting the right amount of nutrients from healthy foods in the right combination. An important part of nutrition studies is to see the diseases that can be produced from malnutrition and the role that food plays in the development of chronic diseases. Poor foods can cause a lack of energy, digestive problems, food allergies, weight gain, depression and anxiety, and the most common chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease, cancer and adha. Having nutritional information and making informed choices about the foods you eat can help you achieve optimal health throughout your life. Nutrition is also about why we choose to eat the foods we make, even when we know they may not be good for us, what happens to the cellular level and how it affects what we want, and thus regulating unhealthy or harmful food cycles. Nutritionists advise people on what to eat and how to change their diet so they can maintain or restore optimal health or help alleviate health and fight disease. There are nearly all day-to-day recommendations in the media about what to eat and what not to eat (and drink), and many of them are confusing and contradictory. It continues to gain popularity as it has celebrity chefs and delicious meals, food capsules and fast diets. Food is a topic close to everyone’s heart (and stomach!) and more and more people are realizing that what you eat can affect your short-term and long-term health. Naturopathic foods often try to uncover and support the causes of the disease, rather than treating the symptoms like traditional medicines. Many people find that boosting a bad diet to treat a symptom can result in other health benefits such as increased energy levels, improved skin, and better sleep, among a host of other benefits. Whether you continue to study further to become a nutritionist or not, the knowledge you gain will be invaluable because your knowledge can be integrated into your daily life with your own health benefits and well-being.
