All the chemical reactions and biological processes taking place in our cells are supported by the energy generated by metabolising the food ingested. Each stage of our lives – be it growth, adulthood, old age or sickness – needs a special diet, adapted to the needs of that particular moment. What we eat may be both a blessing and a curse for our body. The content, quantity and schedule of our meals are all essential to sustain the healing processes and to maintain our health. Food is the "foundation” needed to build a true, durable state of health. We eat at least three times a day, from the moment we are born, until the end of our lives. Can you name any other thing that is equally constant in our lives?
