Healthy Nutrition

Food is the simplest and most immediate tool with which each individual can determine the quality of his or her present and future health. According to the doctors of antiquity it is our first medicine.

A healthy and balanced diet can, together with other factors, help the body prevent various diseases that today represent the main causes of mortality both in Italy and in Europe.

Nutrition is a preventative factor. For this reason, it is good to orientate ourselves as soon as possible towards the consumption of quality food and adopt the rules that allow for a healthy diet.

 Participating in this Symposium was very exciting for me because it is the first major event I attended as a Nutritionist. I felt part of a group of professionals who have the same thought and the same desire to put into practice what the scientific evidence is supporting even in the nutritional field.

Functional medicine is spreading exponentially in other states such as the United States, England and New Zealand. Here in Italy we are still in its infancy, but the desire to get involved and spread it is very strong.

During the Symposium, foreign and Italian professionals of high level and culture in functional medicine, such as Dr. Fasano, Dr. Bevacqua and Dr. O’Brian – to name a few – had their speech .

Rusk with honey and hemp seeds by thewealthyspoon proposed by Nutritionist Dr. Paola Proietti Cesaretti

Toasted bread slices with hemp seeds
