How Food Pharmacy provides support for your unique body
The recent demand for organic produce and natural food sources shows how people have become more conscious about their nutrition. We have come to understand the critical role of food when it comes to achieving optimal health, preventing diseases, and supporting any existing disease condition.
But with your unique body and dietary needs, plus all the available information and options, it can be an overwhelming process to map out a sound nutritional plan for you. In fact, a food that’s considered healthy for someone may not necessarily be good for you; for example, bread, which is a common source of carbohydrates, is not good for someone who suffers from certain medical conditions like gluten sensitivity.
As we now focus on the preventive and curative properties of food, BioBalance provides a service called “Food Pharmacy,” a program that simplifies the process of knowing what exactly you should eat.
Now that I’m diagnosed with gluten sensitivity/ diabetes/hypertension, what exactly can I eat?
Through Food Pharmacy, BioBalance provides each client with a tailor-fitted nutritional plan which is perfectly suited with his or her lifestyle and health conditions, among others. This includes listing down food into four categories: 1) Ideal foods (eat more), 2) Neutral Foods (eat just enough) 3) Foods to Eat Very Rarely (eat less), and 4) Foods to Avoid (don’t eat).
It may look like a typical food list at first, but it actually considers and cross-checks approved nutrition-related studies and publications to simplify the ideal list of food items based on an individual’s health concern.
