Eating Right By Jombo Odilichukwu

written by The Intellects Mag November 16, 2017

Growing up through the primary and secondary school, we were taught that food is what the body needs to grow and function properly, just like the kitchen stove needs kerosene to function, and gas cooker needs gas to function, so does the body need good food to function and grow properly.

However, lack of food leads to malnutrition in both children and adults. Below are a few sickness poor eating can cause in the body of children and adults alike.

Health problems in children:

  • Stunted growth and loss of weight
  • Slowness in locomotion, thought and speech
  • Kwashiorkor
  • Dizziness and lack of energy
  • Sad and unpleasant feelings
  • Swelling of feet, fat and hands usually with sores or marks on the skin
  • Thinning, straightening, or loss of hair, its colour and shine
  • Dryness of eye, Night blindness and even blindness

Health problems in adults

  • Fatigue and tiredness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Anemia (loss of red blood cells, hemoglobin)
  • Sores in the corners of the mouth
  • Painful or sore tongue
  • Burning or numbness of the feet
  • Ageing

There are some other diseases that may not really be caused by poor feeding, but are made worse by poor feeding. They include the following:

  • Diarrhea
  • Measles
  • Tuberculosis
  • Common colds
  • Frequent Infections
  • Ringing or buzzing in the ears
  • Headache
  • Bleeding or redness of the gums
  • Skin bruises easily
  • Nosebleeds
  • Stomach discomfort
  • Dryness and cracking of the skin
  • Palpitations (heavy pulsing of the heart or of the ‘pit’ of the stomach)
  • Anxiety and mental problems
  • Cirrhosis (liver disease)

These sickness affect the old and young adults, and even pregnant women or lactating mothers.

When a person is sick, eating good food and adequate diet leads to quick recovery. And a person who is not sick, needs to eat adequate diet to stay healthy.

Adequate diet refers to food that has all the classes of food in the right proportion, they are outlined according to their categories below:

GO FOODS (ENERGY HELPERS):

Fats and oil

Proteins (Nuts)

Carbohydrates (Sugar and starch)

MAIN FOODS

Carbohydrates (cereals, starchy roots, and fruits)

GROW FOODS

Proteins (legumes, nuts animal products)

Fats and oil

GLOW FOODS

Vitamins (vegetables)

Minerals (fruits)

Water

Good doctors’ advice that the best medicine for any illness including obesity is good food

Some of the information in this work is gotten from the book “WHERE THERE IS NO DOCTOR” by David Werner, et al.

I do accept as true with all of the concepts you have presented in your post.
They’re really convincing and can certainly work.
