With the many diseases and illnesses man tries to face today, one wonders how to avoid, prevent, or cure them. Actually, it just boils down to the basics. Everyone, young and old alike, simply needs Common Sense Nutrition. Unfortunately, for most people, “common sense” and “nutrition” aren’t on top of their lists. That’s why author Dr. Lloyd Drager brings this idea to the forefront to give everyone the opportunity to start anew in their health habits.
If nutrition is the process of taking in the necessary food substances for living, growing, and repairing, and common sense is the ordinary, good, or sound, then Common Sense Nutrition is good, ordinary, sound food for living, growing and repairing tissues. To do this, certain amount of food is required. But too little or too much food will not help; it should be the right amount.
“Common sense nutrition covers anything we do to nourish the cells of our body, from the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe in. All of the nutrients are used to help us live, grow and repair tissues, and anything we take into the system that damages or interferes with these processes is poor nutrition…We develop a system within our systems that helps repair any damage and the body is equipped with many lines of defense to guard, protect and prevent further damage or invasion of toxic things or microbes,” explains the author.
Common sense may tell people what to eat, but eating the right thing is not enough. There are other things that must be done in order to obtain proper health. It has to do with living, growing, and repairing. It’s a multifaceted equation, called “The Four Propers”—Eat properly, Rest properly, Exercise properly, and Think properly—for without these Four Propers, one cannot live, grow, and repair tissues.
