Personal Space is included in the Healing Foods Pyramid™ as part of a balanced, whole food, plant-based diet. Our relationship with food is complex, spanning all five senses and affecting us both physically and emotionally. We recognize that the richness of this relationship provides benefits that go beyond what is measurable in a laboratory. While upholding the importance of a balanced, mindful relationship with food and eating, we invite you to personalize the Healing Foods Pyramid™ by occasionally allowing yourself a special treat that is healing for you.
The Healing Foods Pyramid™ was created by the Nutrition Education Team at the University of Michigan Integrative Medicine, Department of Family Medicine in 2005 and updated in 2009.
