The Healing Powers of Food

Almost every ancient society or culture believes that food has healing properties. Socrates thought that natural foods were the best type of medication.  Many Asian cultures still practice a form of traditional medicine that is based on eating certain herbs, spices, roots, etc.  This is why I’m fascinated by this video.  It speaks to my belief that you become what you eat. I have cut out 90% of processed foods from my diet, and I have noticed a huge difference in my well being and body composition. My results are nothing compared to the doctor featured in the video, who believes that she turned back multiple scleloris by eating a “hunter-gatherer” diet consisting only of whole foods, fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, berries, and organic meat. She went from being nearly completely disabled to being able to live a vigorous life. An amazing turnaround.

The doctor will be leading a clinical study that would put her hypothesis to the test. Can her results be replicated in a controlled environment? She says that initials results were breathtaking. This doesn’t surprise me. Diet is about 65% of the health battle, but sadly, it’s the one thing most people think about the least. It’s almost criminal how the industrial food industry has placed some products on the market and labeled them as “food.”

About Jade Nuyen

You know the people who tell you that life goes downhill after 40, or after you've had children? They're full of crap. I prove it to myself every single day that life begins after 40 and you don't have to accept being a frumpy out of shape mom as a lifestyle.

    Watch Forks Over Knives. The right foods can be healing. I don’t believe our bodies are meant to eat processed foods.

      Yes- I agree! I had to learn it the hard way myself. Anyone can start eating clean again. Definitely helps having the support to learn and share with as well!
