The code basically requires us to consume fresh healthy food, do physical activity and participate in life in the community where you live.

The basis for good health are: adequate sleep and rest, nutrient-rich diet, physical activity and spending a little bit of time outdoors every day.

Keep in mind that your diet should have an adequate amount of essential minerals and nutrients. Magnesium, which is what regulates the nervous system is one of the important components of the diet.
