Herbal Home Remedies for Common Ailments

Foundation of good health lies in what you eat. Good nutrition is key to longevity. A human body requires 4 basic forms of nutrients - fats, proteins, water and carbohydrates. In addition to this body also requires micronutrients, minerals and vitamins. A person should have a clear idea of what to take in what quantity if he wants to live long.

By consuming 4 building blocks mentioned above and maintaining a proper balance could help body to work properly to its optimal level.

In addition to what you eat you should also take care for type of utensils you use to cook food. Never ever use aluminum or cookware with nonstick coatings. The metal or other substances in the cookware get mixed with the food and affect the body and especially nervous system.

Finally limit the intake of salt per day. Less than 500mg of sodium is required by the body everyday to remain healthy. Stay away from processed foods as they contain high amount of sodium.
