• Food and how it can potentially affect your health

    There has been a lot of talk recently around the foods that we eat and the affects or not that they have on our health, diets and energy levels.

    I know there has always been various discussions surrounding the food that we eat today, including whether Organic is better for you, the water that is thought to be pumped into today's meat, but more recently, and I don't know if it's because I've personally become more aware of it, there is more and more information coming out about how the foods we eat affect and can also help our health and in some instances potentially heal us.

    I have to say I'm not 100% convinced that you can heal yourself through eating the right foods but I have been presented with some strong evidence proving that with some life changes you really can keep yourself healthy or make yourself better.

    Those of you who have been following my raw foods blog, you will know that I was mentored by an incredible lady Polly Noble, Polly is eating raw and healing her cancer without medical treatment, her story is definitely worth a read, so please do visit her at www.pollynoble.com and see what Polly's experiences have been, and what she feels are key pointers to a long and healthy life. Another incredible person who I have had the pleasure of meeting is Simon Lyon who has cured himself of cancer by using an alkaline diet without any medical treatment, take a look at Simon's story and how he helps others today by visiting him at www.myutopia.co.

    These are just 2 examples of where I started my exploration of food and how it can affect your body, and when you read it and delve further it can be quite scary, but definitely something I would suggest doing because we can all always find ways in which to improve our health and try and live as long a life as possible. In addition to looking at these 2 sites I would also recommend taking a look at the Food Matters website, www.foodmatters.tv, it is really interesting to see what other people's views are and where they have formulated their research from.

    The reason that I decided to do this blog is due to the latest program on Channel 4 called The Food Hospital. In this programme they look at a wide variety of illnesses and how food can affect and help the illness that you have. I was especially interested in the first episode as there was a girl on there who had severe Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), which I have and as a result have had difficulty falling pregnant even through IVF. On the programme they were looking at what her symptoms were, which are different to mine, but the principle is still the same, and how the various foods that you eat can make the symptoms even more of a problem and therefore looking at what foods you should be eating. One of the problems with PCOS can be insulin levels so eating foods that are high in sugar is pretty much a no, no, but I do love chocolate so do find this quite difficult to do. If you visit www.channel4.com/foodhospital, you can search through a variety of symptoms and illnesses and see how the foods you eat could be affecting you. I would definitely take a look, and maybe try out what they suggest, just to see if you do feel any differently and if the foods they suggest help.

    After seeing the Food Hospital and reading more and more about Polly's and Simon's incredible stories I'm going to be going back to my raw foods diet and really getting myself fit and healthy because I want to see if it does help me, so that I can actually blog about it and really be able to share my own life experience with you all.

    I'd love to hear from all of you as to your thoughts on the food front and also if you have had any experiences that you can share with us all. I really look forward to hearing from you all soon.

    Thank you and take care
