What you eat matters
Dietary habits, stress-induced cortisol increase, and the diversity of our microbiome (the bacteria who live in and on us)—all play more of a role in our health than we ever appreciated in the past.
FOOD SHOULD BE NOURISHING
Living in a culture where for most of us, food is readily accessible but in many instances not nourishing, we are beset by illnesses that our ancestors never saw.
The "Western diet" of processed grains, reliance on corn in the manufacture of vast quantities and types of food, and monoculture leading to depleted soils all contribute to chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and inflammation.
