What is nutrition and lifestyle
There is no doubt that the interaction between genetic and environmental (mainly dietary) factors plays a very significant role in the aetiology of many socially significant diseases. Nutrition and the nutrients it delivered were key promoters of human development. The definition of a healthy diet must therefore also take place against the background of human evolution
In the last 100 years, nutrition has changed fundamentally. Numerous diseases of civilization are caused by the lack of adaptation of the metabolism to this modern diet. Compared to today, the diet of hunter-gatherers is characterized by a significantly higher intake of fatty acids with favorable metabolism properties such as ALA, EPA and DHA, as well as high-quality proteins, fruits and vegetables with simultaneous consumption of cereals, sugar and cow’s milk. A change-adapted diet for prevention is based on what we call “stone age” nutrition.
Nutrition itself is crucial as an improper diet over time has an enormous impact for example on the intestinal tract, especially in combination with toxins to which the body may be exposed. The digestive flora, the very foundation of the immune system, can become unbalanced over time. This imbalance can throw the whole body system off kilter. We are increasingly consuming substances to which our metabolism is not adapted and which are therefore little or not suitable for human consumption. The understanding of a “healthy diet” must therefore be considered against the background of the developed adaptation of the human metabolism to nutrition over many millennia.
Beside nutrition the modern western lifestyle is a challenging fact. People are less active and there is less manual labor and more use of transport. Chronic influence of stress in daily life contributes to vegetative nervous system disorders. A sedentary lifestyle and overweight are major clinical and economic problems in modern societies. The worldwide epidemic of overweight is due to the imbalance between physical activity and dietary energy intake. A sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy diet and consequent overweight and obesity markedly increase the risk of subsequent cardiac events, such as non-fatal arrhythmia, myocardial infarction and sudden cardiac death
How do we treat nutrition and lifestyle
The key question is: What do I have to do to stay as healthy and vital as possible for as long as possible?
Our holistic approach is to first address intestinal health. Providing patients with an intensive nutritional plan and helping them detoxify are instrumental strategies that we use to get patients to where they no longer need to rely on medicines prescribed them by conventional medicine. Our mission when it comes to treatment is to “unblock” the body’s regulatory functions rather than simply suppress the body’s response.
Shifting to a more natural diet and integrating naturopathic remedies is the base of all treatments. We determine each patient’s individual situation and develop a personalized treatment plan. Once the contributing causes have been remedied, the patient usually stabilizes, and in many conditions we are able to achieve significant progress.
Consumption of a wide variety of foods, appropriate vitamin and mineral supplementation, avoidance of alcohol and other harmful substances, and safe food handling are the main goals of your treatment at recore. The best long-term results may be achieved when physical activity produces an energy expenditure of at least 200–500 kcal day. Regular moderate physical activity (mainly aerobic exercise), a healthy diet and avoidance of unhealthy weight gain are effective and safe ways to prevent and treat cardiovascular diseases. At recore we will help you to reach your own goals of a healthy and satisfying life.
