I usually talk about how food is medicine – but it’s not the only factor in being healthy – or getting healthy for that matter. Exercise improves immune function, mental health, sleep quality, blood pressure, helps prevent cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, depression and osteoporosis, and increases your lifespan. It’s at #5 on the list of factors causing mortality (death), behind diet at #1 and smoking at #2, but #5 is still worth giving some focus to.
My name is Mary Collis. I live in the Hawkesbury Valley west of Sydney, Australia. I'm a wholefood nutritionist who believes that eating a nutrient dense, plant based diet is your first step to becoming well. Here on my website you will get information on ways to improve your health, find out about nutrition myths, and be able to book for a one-on-one consultation.
