6 Produits Naturels Indispensables pour Votre Santé - La Boite à Grains

Why do the hundred thousand billion cells in the human body degenerate, mutate and die? Because we don't feed them properly. It may sound simplistic, but it's true. Any hope of longevity depends on healthy cells.2

Chronic degenerative diseases kill 24 million people worldwide every year. Cancer alone takes the lives of over 6 million people every year, and according to statistics from the World Cancer Research Fund, 3 to 4 million cases of these cancers could be prevented by a change in eating habits.

So-called 'healthy' food, i.e. food that's good for you, is perceived as being incapable of satisfying your palate or taste buds, leading you to believe that 'anything that tastes good is bad for you'..2, 3

With our fast-paced lifestyles, we often reduce food, 'that essential need', to eating pre-prepared products and pseudo-food quickly reheated in the microwave. When you think about it, though, the raw materials used for these ready-made meals come from produce harvested before it is ripe, transported and stored for days or even weeks before it reaches our table and our plate. What's more, this paradigm does nothing to excite our tastes or our curiosity about products in their natural form..3

The twentieth century has certainly not been sensitive to the fundamental needs of human beings and their overall health. Once this fact has been recognized, it is to our advantage to agree to modify our way of thinking and acting, and to seek to rediscover that survival instinct that is the act of eating. We need to rediscover our ancestral diet, full of living foods that provide vitamins and minerals, quality carbohydrates, fats and proteins, and boundless energy.

When health becomes a priority, and provides the energy we need to achieve our dreams, eating, drinking, moving, breathing and digesting become an integral part of our lives, with a generous place in our daily routine..1, 3

Natural health factors to rediscover

Naturopathy, which is a holistic approach (observing the individual as a whole), is not new; on the contrary, it is lost in the mists of time. The practice of healing with so-called natural remedies could be found in every village and tribe on earth.

Naturopathy aims to preserve this vital force within us by recognizing certain issues, such as the accumulation of waste from our metabolism (endogenous source) and diet, and pollution (exogenous source) from the environment. This waste overload exposes our organism to disease. This is why, for example, a detoxification cure makes so much sense. The primary cause of disease is not the microbe itself, but the overloaded environment that allows microbes to take hold. In naturopathy, the word "terrain" is frequently used to designate an individual's overall psychological, physical, emotional and even social state.

The microbe is nothing, the terrain is everything'. Dr. Antoine Béchamp

Above all, let's start breathing again, drinking plenty of water, getting our vitamin D by playing outside in the sun, moving around, resting, and making room for our inner life. Here's a balance to aim for. Life on earth is a great experience, and it's up to us to choose what we want to experience..1, 3, 4, 5
