There will be emphasis on a holistic and sustainable lifestyle driven approach where proper diet, exercise, and other healthy habits are seen as vital medicine for fighting lifestyle related diseases.

Healthy habits are increasingly being referred to as ‘lifestyle medicine’ because lifestyle is such a powerful tool for achieving good health and the effects are broad.

Adopting a healthy lifestyle goes beyond countering one or two diseases that a person may be battling but actually treats the whole person as a result of the broad impact of healthy habits.

Keep in mind also that ‘healthy’ is not defined as simply the absence of disease; being healthy means attaining good health to the greatest extent possible.

The health and nutrition segment will also highlight the little known health benefits of indigenous foods and diets.

Chronic illnesses are becoming common in Zambia and the rest of Africa mainly due to people abandoning traditional diets, rich in plant based unprocessed foods and healthy fats, in preference for modern diets high in meat, unhealthy fats, and heavily processed foods.

Hopefully, awareness about the nutritional advantages of indigenous foods will help remove the stigma associated with eating village-like food.   Indigenous foods, eaten mostly in the village setting and among the low income population, happen to be smart food choices by people who have very sound nutritional knowledge.  Modern diets are completely devoid of vital nutrients that provide essential nourishment to the body for the continuity of good health.

The health and nutrition page will provide insight that makes you realize the great extent to which you can control your health.
