If you’re ever confused as to what foods are good for which body parts or ailments, well there’s a simple trick you can use. A trend has been spotted that some of the most common foods in our diet actually resemble the parts of the body they help. The coincidences are startling:
Sliced carrot: It’s been said that eating carrots enhances blood flow to the eyes and has been proven to reduce damage to vision. Next time you’re slicing some carrot take a look at the cross-section and you’ll notice the resemblance to the pupil, iris and radiating veins.
Tomato: Just like the human heart, a tomato has four chambers (and is red!). Loaded with lycophine, tomatoes are excellent for improving cardio health and boosting blood flow and quality.
Walnuts: Science has shown that walnuts help develop more than thirty neuro-transmitters for brain function. At closer inspection, a walnut looks like the brain in that there is both a left and right hemisphere and upper and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles look familiar!
Kidney Beans: Is it any surprise what this food might help. Named for its resemblance to the human kidney, these beans help heal and maintain kidney function.
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb: These stick vegetables look remarkably like human bones and they are remarkably effective in improving bone strength. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, these foods are the perfect solution: interestingly enough celery, rhubarb and Bok Choy are 23% sodium – just like human bones.
Avocadoes, Eggplant and Pears: These fruits are proven to be effective in balancing female hormone levels, shift unwanted birth weight and can even prevent cervical cancers. All of them are bursting with thousands of nutrients and look just like the womb and cervix.
Sweet Potato: If you’ve never seen a human pancreas, then just take one look at a sweet potato. These are often recommended to diabetics as it helps to balance the body’s glycemic index.
These just scratch the surface of the wonderful foods available to us that can help strengthen and improve the body’s function (and resemble the parts of the human body they help!). Eating a well-balanced and nutritious diet, as well keeping fit and active, is extremely important for promoting the best in all round well-being. In addition, regular chiropractic care can not only boost your immune system’s function – our Chiropractors and other Chiropractors in Adelaide can also advise you on the best diet, lifestyle choices and remedies for any health concerns that you may have.
