Many people fail to realize that most of their body complaints can be remedied by something as simple and basic as nutrition. If one maintains a nutritious diet that is low on sugar and harmful additives, there would be minimal need for supplements and other treatments.
Take having clear skin, for example. Many women spend a ton on makeup - foundations, creams, and concealers that hide imperfections. There will be no need for these if only one takes the time to feed the body what it needs. With a nutrition-rich diet, clear skin that comes from within is effortless.
