Just how the Inside Impacts the Outside
“The food industry has been transformed over the last 20-30 year period,” said Dr. Robin at the very start of the radio show job interview when she spoke about how the inside impacts the outside. “There are more refined foods and more foods with extra sugars and salt nowadays. Besides benefiting the heart, the approach of “dealing with the whole physical body”, will make you become a better person or part of a group. What we place in our bodies either affects us positively or negatively, and thus, the more “real” food we consume– the healthier we will become”.
Teenagers are facing issues related to poor digestion. This endangers the immune system. It also disrupts the hormones. Furthermore, young adults are usually addicted to stimulating substances like coffee, as well as energy boosting drinks and soft drinks. All of these are rich in glucose and caffeine. Sweet drinks and foods, she explained, are many times more habit- forming than narcotic drugs.
Dr Robin said that teenage health was also adversely affected by sedentary habits, chemicals in foods and medications, and negative thoughts and feelings. In trying to change these patterns, parents needed to set a positive example by walking their talk, using positive words, and reading food labels. She suggested a simple way to initiate change: adopt one good health habit each month. Within a year, a person will have adopted 12 healthy habits.
