Healing Foods


So many of us have been told! Well I have been!!! By my lovely Mum to eat this or that. Prepare this for when your ill! This will help! I have always been open to home remedies first as I never liked taking medicine.

Coming from an Indian background and a Mum and Dad that will always find the best solution to help us. I have always been exposed to using food, herbs, spices and fruits in a healing manner.


Sometimes your body requires certain vitamins and minerals and you are informed through cravings! I strongly believe this as I start eating certain foods due to a strong craving and then find out I’m lacking in that particular food component!


When women are pregnant, we do listen to our bodies more. It’s like our precious little one is letting us know what he or she needs from us, in the form of nourishment. I think we should, men and women should pay more attention to what are bodies are telling us.


I think it’s always great to add certain foods to our diet to help alleviate symptoms and heal our bodies. Alongside science we can co exist and aid the illness or deficiency!


I will be sharing information with you all that will help your in day to day life. Which indeed thoroughly supports me in the way I eat and to make life that bit easier. A healthy body, is a healthy mind and a happy soul! β™‘


If you have any amazing food facts or home remedies that work for you and your family, please feel free to share them with all of us. Just send me a link or email and I will add them to this series! Referring to you and your wonderful blogs xxx

I really hope you enjoy my new addition to Shivaay Delights and look forward to hearing from you all and your experiences with food that heals you!
Have a healthy and peaceful day!
Much love D x

  2. Great post! I absolutely love stuff like this, and learning as much as I can. I totally opt for natural alternatives whenever possible! I’d love to hear more about which cravings are caused by which deficiencies… πŸ™‚

  3. Love this post! Tumeric – curcumin – is supposed to be amazing as a cancer fighting food – it is the latest super spice! Also to help alkalise the body’s PH level (especially if meat figures in the diet), fill a jug with water, slice a lemon and add to the water and sip throughout the day. I know that lemons are acidic but somehow (I can’t quite remember the whole explanation) when ingested they help to alkalise the body’s PH levels…now, to stock up on almonds!

    • Oh wow! I didn’t know that about turmeric! How fantastic! I will definitely be trying the lemon water. I have read about eating more foods to alkalise our PH Levels.. We have a lot of acid based foods in our diet. I will try and find some information on this for the next post! Thanks for sharing Selma xx

  4. I really need to try that almond thing. My last migraine was almost 8 days long! I have a great recipe for almond ‘nutella’! πŸ™‚ xo
