10 Foods with the
POWER to HEAL
The foods we select for ourselves and our families provide us with nourishment, and, if we choose wisely, support a healthy lifestyle. Some foods, however, actually have the power to heal our bodies after and during illness as well as help prevent illness. A number of these foods exist. This article will focus on only ten. I’ve chosen these specific foods due to their prevalence on many lists of healing foods, because of their health benefits, and because they are readily attainable at our grocery stores and markets. There are far more exotic foods I could have highlighted, but I chose instead to include foods that could easily be integrated into any daily diet.
As always, food allergies and drug interactions need to be taken into consideration before adding any of these foods to one’s diet if they are not already a part of it.
Taking advantage of the foods that help to heal existing conditions within our bodies and prevent others isn’t hard to do. Being aware of which foods are most beneficial for which problems helps. Seeking them out and preparing them with love can also give us a sense of purpose, knowing we are doing something good for ourselves and our families.
