K.I.S Food as Medicine

'Let food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.'  Hippocrates

Being well and pursuing optimal health and wellness doesn't usually happen by accident. There is a certain consciousness  to 'feeling better',  not just now and again but every day. What we eat and drink, has a significant impact on that mission.

You've heard it all before I'm sure. All the things to avoid. The evils of sugar. The misleading marketing messages on packaging, one day red wine is good for you, the next it isn't. It's confusing, but it doesnt need to be. In simple terms the 'farm to table' approach is the most ideal.  The least 'messed around with' your food is, the better it will be for you but...

"Fundamentally it is not what we need to avoid but infact what we need to include that balances us" Dr Kate James MBBS

If you include certain foods in what you love to eat they will effortlessly change your intuitive eating patterns. Don't deprive yourself, don't feel guilty, don't change anything about what you're already eating if you don't want to. Do add in the foods we're suggesting and do enjoy how much better you will start to feel.

The foods we're talking about pack a serious punch nutritionally. They're referred to as balancing foods and also adaptogenic foods. Not a word many of us are familar with but about to be more so.

In its purist sense, adaptogen is a herbal medical term that describes a plant, or part of a plant, that acts as a tonic to take the body back to it’s natural balance point or equilibrium

Put simply, adaptogenic or balancing foods actually help to guide the choices we make in terms of food, lifestyle, exercise and even sleep. These foods work in harmony with the body to naturally bring it back to its own equilibrium.  What’s even more important is that the effects of consuming these foods can continue even when an adaptogenic food is no longer being consumed. Their properties are such that they can carry on working for months after consumption in helping us to be balanced and feel fantastic.

So many of us are completely unaware of these hidden natural treasures, possibly one of life’s most undervalued booty!  We want to shout about them from the roof tops and have you, your friends and your families as excited about them as we are.
