On this last day of National Nutrition Month, I am going to discuss the health concerns of certain disease that diet can assist in playing a positive role to better health. If you have a chronic condition, a carefully planned diet can make a difference. With certain diseases, what you eat may reduce symptoms. In other cases, diet can improve health. For example, eating a heart-healthy diet can help lower high blood pressure; this reduces the risk of both heart attack and stroke. Even if someone does not have high blood pressure, eating a heart-healthy diet may reduce the risk of heart disease in the future.
Click the link below of a video below to learn about how eating healthfully can prevent and manage many chronic diseases. An eating plan that keeps health concerns in mind will also incorporate your personal nutrient needs, food preferences, lifestyle and level of physical activity.
