Diet: The advice of Prof. Henri Joyeux

It's clear now, "foodies" are rampant on every floor.

However, we must eat well! "Good" in the sense that the pleasure of eating must remain intact and not drive us crazy. "Good" in the sense that food is one of the best ways of preventing cancer and other diseases of civilisation. It is estimated that 50% of cancers are linked to bad eating habits. This is a minimum, given that it is the Academy of Medicine that says so... There is no doubt that our relationship with food plays a central role in the development of cancers. This is what some independent experts, such as Professor Henri Joyeux, have been hammering out for years. This oncologist is the pioneer of primary prevention through diet.

Professor of oncology and digestive surgery at the Faculty of Medicine in Montpellier, Henri Joyeux is one of the best French specialists in NUTRITION, diet and cancer. He likes to quote Jean Rostand. It is his way of translating the first Hippocratic precept.

In his preface to "L'alimentation ou la troisième médecine", a work that has been republished many times by his friend Jean Seignalet, he recalls this obvious fact:
"it is NUTRITION that makes the unity of the coherent human body".

We are what we eat, but alas, all nutritional advice no longer goes in the same direction.

During your health check-up at the Chinamedic Clinic Center, remembering the fundamentals will be inescapable, indispensable for your health and well-being.


Micronutrition consists of satisfying the individual's micronutrient needs, through a diversified diet, associated if necessary with personalised supplementation. It is based on advances in research and on the links between food and health.

Micronutrition, a medical discipline of the future

How is it practiced?

Micronutrition is particularly suited to functional disorders, which account for nearly 80% of the reasons for medical consultation.
The doctor screens for dietary imbalances and micronutrient deficiencies (trace elements, vitamins, fatty acids, amino acids...), then proposes a solution adapted to his patient.
Today, there are more than 3000 doctors practicing it.

What are its postulates?

Everyone is unique: we do not have the same metabolism, nor the same needs.
We must start from the individual and his state of health, and not only from his plate.
It is interesting to adapt an individual's diet to their personal profile.
A diet, even a balanced one, may not meet the specific needs of an individual.

What are the fields of application?

Disorders of digestive functioning: food assimilation, digestive comfort and transit, allergies, intolerances, intestinal permeability problems.
Prevention of overweight and support for the treatment of overweight.
The links between food and brain function: improving the intake of precursors of neuromediators, the brain "hormones" that act on mood.
Health food: how to adapt your diet to the fight against ageing and degenerative diseases.
Sports nutrition: optimising sports performance and recovery.
Prevention of cardiovascular diseases and metabolic syndrome.
Preventive nutrition of osteoporosis and states of fragility.
