A senior manager (who wishes to remain anonymous) of a Dubai-based company recently noted a lot of staff members reporting sick due to weather changes.
As someone who understands the role of diet in our health, he sent out a short interesting note to his employees. We are grateful that he agreed to share it with us, so that we too can take a cue…
Read the note here.
With seasonal changes, we are susceptible to falling sick. Common colds, viral fevers etc.
It is said that the body has power to heal itself. The source of healing is the energy which is prevalent and obtained from the food we intake.
Now, the body likes food in the most simplest form. It is easily broken down, and the energy and nutrients are easily obtained from such food.
In our normal day to day lives, we are eating cooked food. In short, this is a process which modifies the food and makes it complex. When we ingest such food, the body has to work hard to convert the complex food into a simplified form and then obtain the energy and nutrients. So to do this, it consumes more energy than storing, which otherwise can be diverted to the problem areas in the body to heal itself.
Even when you visit a doctor, he/she often guides you to have simple food and avoid oily and heavy food etc. He/she knows how our body works and how it heals.
The best thing to do during such period is to take fresh raw foods like salads and fruits. The body easily absorbs the nutrients and energy without spending energy towards digestion.
The energy saved now is being used by the body to heal itself.
