The current world of nutrition and health has experienced a number of breakthroughs and is a far cry from what general nutrition was once understood as. Still, the current trends on healthy eating and dietary improvements nevertheless have not lost their faddish bend, and many ‘tested and proven’ diets supposedly able to ‘revolutionize one’s health’ are either duds or simply too difficult or too unappealing to keep up in the long run.
Meet Dr. Daniel Amen, he has nutritional plan that all-natural
Meet Dr. Daniel Amen, a nutritionist, professional psychiatrist, and best-selling author of a number of books on health, wellness and diet with a degree in medicine from Oral Roberts University School of Medicine. Dr. Amen’s take on successful health and wellness, particularly his focus on partaking of nutritionally dense whole foods to combat the most basic ailments to the more decidedly harmful types of disease, is the product of 32 years of practice.
Dr. Amen believes that a diet which comprises of immunity-boosting and neuro-protective foods can do more than just improve overall health and wellness, but can actually help to prevent and even treat or reverse the effects of some common mental disorders like chronic depression, ADHD, ADD, Alzheimer’s, and dementia. Very impressive claims back by evidence.
Dr. Amen’s specialized dietary plan, referred to as the ‘Daniel Plan’ (referring to the Biblical prophet and seer Daniel) comprises of a simplistic and holistic take on disease-preventative and restorative diet, with a primary focus on the consumption of whole grains, fresh vegetables, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids derived from seafood. But that’s not the whole of his diet plan.
Not only is one meant to enjoy the wholesome food eaten on a daily basis, the Daniel Plan also focuses on a fulfilling and richly rewarding spiritual angle – in that dietary changes for brain health and disease prevention is just the tip of the iceberg, but that a spiritually enriching lifestyle should go along with it. Unlike fad diets that focus on one type of super-food as a ‘wonder-drug’, the Daniel Plan understands that the nutrition derived from food have to work synergistically and holistically.
Coupled with an emotionally and spiritually fulfilling and nurturing lifestyle to truly work, the Daniel Plan is a far cry indeed from most diets that focus merely on weight loss, gorging oneself on super-foods, or counting calories and avoiding fats. If it’s a good, wholesome, and effective diet one is after – one that will drastically improve the overall quality of one’s life – then the Daniel Plan is the way to go!
