Food Has the Power to Make or Break Our Health! She Came to Me to Lose Weight, but Got Her Mystery Illness Solved Instead!Dr. Nitin Gupte
An early forties lady consulted me from Aurangabad some ten years ago. She used to have repeated bouts of swelling all over her body along with fever and extreme fatigue. The lady was bed ridden for a few days each time she had such attacks. She saw many consultants, but the attacks did not stop.
She didn’t eat particularly bad, but she loved a certain type of ‘mithai’ from a well known ‘mithai’ shop in Aurangabad. She brought home this mithai every few days. Naturally she had to avoid it as much as possible once she joined my treatment.
She followed her treatment plan well and began losing weight quite well. Her episodes of swelling, fever and fatigue stopped altogether.
Then one day she felt a strong desire to eat her favourite mithai and she bought it. But more health conscious now, she ate it only moderately.
And she was hit by her typical illness straight away, but this time she recovered faster. She was happy that the illness was milder and she recovered quickly this time. She thought it was because she was healthier and fitter now.
But a few weeks later she again ate the same mithai in a small quantity and the illness hit her straight away once more!
This time she reported it to me, the first time she hadn’t.
That’s when both of us suspected that the mithai could be the cause of her illness. We decided to banish it completely and she never had another bout of her illness again!
So it is worthwhile remembering:
FOOD HAS THE POWER TO MAKE OR BREAK OUR HEALTH!
FOOD IS HEALTH CARE, MEDICINE IS SICK CARE!
