Living in megapolis is always harmful to our health. Fast-paced life leads to eating fast food, stress, lack of sleep, and, as a result, to a weak immune system and diseases. Ekaterina Suter, a new columnist of Beautiful Lifestyle magazine, is going to share how we can improve our health.
Ekaterina Suter is a certified nutritionist from Switzerland.
Ekaterina became interested in nutrition due to her personal story: she was a sickly child. Even the best Swiss doctors could not help her. She followed all the prescriptions: she was on several diets, had dietary restrictions and different treatments, but unfortunately, none of the advice worked. She was still ill.
Everything changed when Ekaterina decided to study nutrition herself. She was certified with two diplomas in medical anatomy and nutrition in Switzerland. She also graduated as a GAPS Practitioner in Cambridge. GAPS Practitioner is a specialist that establishes a connection between the functions of the digestive system and the brain. With all the resources and the information, Ekaterina could finally help herself and others. Ekaterina bases her work on a principle: our lifestyle has a vital impact on our health. Today, Ekaterina treats people with diseases like infertility, diabetes and premature aging, etc. She also held several lectures and seminars in the best hospitals of Gen
Ekaterina told the editors of Beautiful Lifestyle magazine which food contains most of the vital vitamins and minerals, improves health, and boosts the immune system.
From our childhood, we always knew that it is important to drink milk if we want to have healthy teeth and bones. There is much calcium in the milk, though our body has a lot of trouble absorbing it. Quite frequently, mostly, if a person has a gut infection, the calcium from dairy is not fully absorbed. It is better to get bioavailable calcium from such products as vegetables, nuts, dried fruits, beans, and lettuce.
To get the calcium, we advise you to include chia seeds, almonds, almond milk, dried figs, white beans, edamame, sunflower seeds, broccoli, sweet potato, lettuce, arugula, okra, and oranges in your diet.
There are two different types of sugar. The white sugar is produced from beet, sugar cane, and coconut; another one is fruit sugar.
White sugar is harmful to health. The body wastes many resources to absorb it. The body needs a lot of molecules of magnesium, enzymes, vitamin C, zinc, and iron only to absorb one molecule of white sugar.
If the vital minerals are lacking, the body tries to replace them with ones found in bones and muscles. The consumption of white sugar can be a result of producing too much insulin and lead to a lack of essential vitamins and minerals.
The fruit sugar is less harmful to our health. Fruits contain minerals that our body can absorb. It is better to replace white sugar and all of the sweets with fruits, dried fruits, and beets.
An online lecture, “Viruses” by Ekaterina Suter, will soon be available on the Beautiful Lifestyle website. The nutritionist will explain the concept of “virus” and how it acts when it infects the body. Ekaterina will also explain how the immune system works.
At the end of the lecture, Ekaterina will present three approaches that can be used to protect and boost the immune system, and also fight the virus. The nutritionist will tell the audience about the nutraceutical approach and teach how to choose natural herbs and nutritional supplements.
