Food as Medicine

< Back to PHYSICAL BODY page

“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.”
Hippocrates, Greek Physician, c. 460 – 370 BC

The most accessible and most empowering way to take control of your holistic health is through nourishing food. If the majority of your diet is made up of good quality food which heals, with a minimum or at best none of the food that harm, then you are in the driving seat to good health.

NUTRITIONISTS AND NATUROPATHIC THERAPISTS
We live in a wonderfully abundant time where we have access to a variety of foods. Unfortunately, we also have access to chemical added, processed foods. As with everything, it is about finding the balance. Nutritionists and Naturopathic Therapists understand the healing power of food, as given the right circumstances, the bodily can heal itself and stay in the equilibrium state of homeostasis. It is in this equilibrium that all body systems function properly. Acute disturbances, such as colds, fevers or skin eruptions are considered to be a form of ‘healing crisis’ in which the body is eliminating toxins as a result of unhealthy living. Suppressing these symptoms only drives the toxins deeper into the body. I recommend you visit either a nutritionist or naturopath, if you wish to find out more and be prescribed a diet specifically tailored for you.
