Healthy foods are not the only necessity for a healthy body.

Healthy foods are not the only necessity for a healthy body.

Occasional deep-dish pizza or Chinese takeout aside, you aim to eat healthy foods. You generally go for organic. You try to steer clear of anything highly processed or GMO. You often peruse the perimeter of the supermarket, picking up products packed with nutrients and known for their shorter shelf life.

In theory, you’re nailing the whole healthy eating idea.

But in reality, those precious nutrients could largely be going to waste.

How’s that?

Eating all those healthy foods without an optimally functioning nervous system is kind of like storing them in a refrigerator that has been unplugged.

Disrupted Nervous System, Disrupted Diet

Your nervous system influences every single part of your body, including components linked to your digestive system. An unbalanced nervous system that experiences disruptions is generally going to pass along those disruptions to other body processes, digestion included.

Think of your nervous system as a central command center, responsible for telling your body what it needs to do with its fuel. If a disturbance is fouling up the works, the messages sent between your body and brain will end up unread.

That means no matter how nutritious your meals may be, your body won’t be able to process them as it should. The nutrients your body needs won’t be properly stored, broken down or even used in their entirety.

You can then easily end up eating healthy meals every day but not fully reaping their benefits.
