“It starts with food because food directly contributes to the primary types of stressors: metabolic, inflammatory, and emotional. (And as you know, dealing with stress properly IS health). Food choices interact with brain chemistry in complex and confounding ways such that food has the potential to exacerbate anxiety, depression, social withdrawal, compulsions, and self-created social and emotional stress. Correcting food choices alters all of these primary stressors, which over the course of time, contributes to improved health. You cannot be truly healthy if your inputs to this supersystem are causing chronic stress.” – Whole9
