“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.”
Have you heard of this Hippocrates? When I first heard this quote I thought, “Genius! How come I’ve never heard of you before?!”
Hippocrates was an ancient Greek physician. He was a medical revolutionary, and is considered the father of western medicine. He understood the human body and medicine in a way that was profoundly accurate and so controversial for the time that he spent 20 years in prison.
Sadly, today as a whole we are no closer to believing the simple statement above than the people of Greece were while Hippocrates lived. Health can not be purchased in a pill. Granted pharmaceuticals have there place, in emergency, but so much of what I know of health can be corrected by FOOD and EXERCISE.
What if the doctors disclaimer on your treatment was this:
You may experience weight loss, better sleep, less aches and/pains, better stamina and vitality. Your muscles may be sore from use. You may experience improved mood, more regular or lighter menses, higher sex drive, and less illness.
Instead of this:
You are what you eat!
