Adequate maternal nutrition prior to conception and during pregnancy can protect the baby from diabetes, stroke, heart disease, kidney disease and memory loss later in life.
The question of how to nourish our children so they develop into healthy adults is the most important question we can ask when it comes to nutrition. Tragically, the answers that the medical mainstream has come up with have contributed to unprecedented epidemics of childhood disease and endangered the health and well-being of our children.
There’s no doubt that optimal nutrition plays a significant role in supporting our health and well-being. But nutrition, as important as it is, obviously isn’t the only factor that influences our physiology. Over the past several years, an increasing amount of research has focused on the role of emotions, behavior and beliefs in contributing to both health and disease.
