Taking care of food choices

Proper nutrition against diseases

Eating is not just one of the pleasures of life, it is also a complete sensorial experience in which all of the five senses contribute.
Factors like the lack of time, lifestyle, having a distorted image of yourself when compared to other socially shared models, the nutrition education based on counting the energetic need and individual nutrients are all elements that keep away both from an healthy and proper diet and also from the pleasure of enjoying the gastronomic tradition of the most developed countries. Eating cannot and must not therefore be freed from its human and social context. Eating while sitting at the table means to get in touch with other people while enjoying not just the food, but also the feeling of self and other’s gratification.

Dietology prevents and manage diseases related to both nutritional deficiencies and excesses and eating disorders. Food excesses lead to obesity and its complications: hypertension, atherosclerosis, heart and respiratory failure, diabetes, gallstones, arthrosis and gout.The nutritional deficiencies are related to organic diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases, gastrointestinal pathologies, neoplasms and nephropathies and celiac disease. Eating disorders can lead to anorexia, bulimia and also to binge eating disorder.

Focus

Food intolerances

Food intolerances are a sort of non-allergic allergies, because the reactions occur without an antibody response. The most considered are lactose and gluten intolerances (celiac disease). Even today, there are no proven causes, it is just accepted their own nature (early introduction of cow’s milk, viral or bacterial intestinal infections, antibiotic misuse, stress, etc.) The scientific literature claims that 5-10% of the population would have disorders due to intolerances and that these are surely responsible for a lower organism’s self-preservation and can therefore be related to several other pathologies. With just a single exam, you can take a food intolerance test, analyze the metabolism from a genetic point of view, check the predisposition to some diseases and get information on how to follow a correct diet.
