Ear, Nose & Throat

As we have known for many years, what we eat, the way we eat and how much we eat affects our general health. A great deal of this has to do with cardiovascular well-being. Not much consideration has been given to the effects of diet and supplements when it comes to ear, nose and throat issues.

You may recall the term “you are what you eat;” this holds true for the ear, nose and throat system. Fortunately, in recent years there has been an uptick in interests on how diet habits can be helpful for the ears, nose and throat. Diets differ around the world depending on the cultures and country of origin. You might be familiar with what they describe as the Mediterranean diet. We also know natives of northern cold climates consumed much more fat than we do because of energy needs as well as food availability.
