Welcome to the DIY Health Check for your personal nutriment. Nutriment is any substance or matter that, taken into a living organism, serves to sustain it in its existence, promoting growth, replacing loss, and providing energy. Anything that nourishes your cells to maximise your lives.
Let us demystify diseases. We don’t have to be scientists to remember that we are made up of hundreds of trillions of intelligent living cells, which in turn make up what we perceive as organs, bones, tissues, blood and brain. And with that in mind, is it not an obvious biological fact that diseases begin and reside at the cellular level, and that unhealthy cells lead to unhealthy organs which lead to deficient metabolic activities perceived as symptoms, which we call disease? It is safe to say that by the time a disease and its symptoms have been diagnosed, the cause(s) that led to the disease have been manifesting in the body’s cells for some time.
Cells are the basic building blocks of all living things, and are the smallest components considered to be living organisms in your body. The human body is composed of trillions of cells that are constantly communicating with each other, responding to your environment and to the signals they receive from what you touch and how you move. They provide structure for the body, take in nutrients from food, convert those nutrients into energy, and carry out specialized functions. Cells also contain the body’s hereditary material and can make copies of themselves, and these cells can also be influenced by our daily lifestyle choices.
If your cells cannot operate efficiently, the functioning of your tissues and organs, which are built of your cells, will become compromised, and you can experience a diminishment of physical functioning and the onset of a host of health conditions and diseases. So, by keeping your cells well nourished, you are keeping yourself well nourished.
This analysis explores if you personally have the basic fundamentals of nutriment to reduce your relative risk of poor cellular health.
