Food As Medicine: An Old Idea Whose Time Has Come (Again!)

Hello everyone:

Here is a link to a recent article that is really worth reading, as it does cover a good perspective and context on why food is actually the best medicine. This includes both for prevention and treatment.

The article states: “The idea of food as medicine is not only an idea whose time has come,” says Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, a cardiologist and the dean of the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. “It’s an idea that’s absolutely essential to our health care system.”

Bottom Line:

It is so totally worthwhile to learn how to shop for clean, whole, natural, organic foods and then to invest the time in learning to prepare nourishing and health building meals and snacks. It won’t take long before you are whipping up super healthy and delicious meals. Food is literally the largest foundational pillar for health, and as I have said many times, you simply cannot fix your diet with supplements. You must eat right and supplement your individual weak areas, and then you can get somewhere using an integrated approach. If you want to avoid, reduce or control chronic health conditions, there simply is not a better way.
