Diseases, allergies and medical conditions
Managing a healthful diet is an essential component of treating many chronic diseases such as heart disease and Diabetes.
A carefully planned diet can make a difference. With certain diseases, what you eat may reduce symptoms. In other cases, diet can improve health. For example, eating a heart-healthy diet can help lower cholesterol; this reduces the risk of both heart attack and stroke. If you have an allergy to a food, following a specific allergy free diet can literally save your life whilst food intolerance symptoms can be managed through identifying your trigger foods.
