Maria’s passion and involvement in nutrition started a number of years ago in response to a kidney condition, which rendered her reliant upon GP-prescribed antibiotics. As with many long-term users of antibiotics, Maria’s immune system was somewhat compromised, leaving her prey to a multitude of common ailments and her immunity compromised.
It was precisely these side effects that prompted Maria to gravitate towards more natural methods of prevention. By taking proactive control of her nutritional program, she achieved complete recovery. She coupled this with quality health supplements and regained control of her life.
“Beyond simple recovery though, Maria discovered the inherent value of a considered nutritional approach after giving birth to twins. By focusing on diet, she was able to attain peak fitness and energy levels in a short period of time.
Maria has put her passion for fun and flavours into an amazing cook book, this is available on amazon. Maria has filled this book with 248 pages of colour, fun, easy and fast recipes that suit everyone. Her family appear in the book with their own classic recipes as does a few of her friends. This book shows you just what Maria’s aim is
“Enjoy what you cook and eat”
Who benefits from good nutrition?
We all benefit from good nutrition.
Nutrition starts from conception and goes on through life’s cycle.
For the young
Younger children show how happy they are when they have a good Healthy diet and regular exercise, I myself have seen the difference in my own children when they have not had enough sleep and maybe attended an event with food they normally would not eat, they are different in their behaviour.
This is not to say they can never have junk food, it is all about maintaining a good balance and teaching good nutrition.
The Older Adult
The same happens when we are older and we ourselves eat food that is processed and full of sugar and salt we eventually act differently and will look different. Eyes do not shine so bright, skin is not as clear and hair not as shiny. Energy levels fall.
It is never too late to enjoy a healthy balanced diet and reap the benefits no matter what the age.
The benefits of good nutrition are multiple:
- Maintaining a good healthy weight.
- Healthy body and mind.
- Healthy Heart
- Strong Bones
- Good healthy Skin
- Self confidence
The power of nutrition is under estimated by many.
