Food as Medicine

You are what you eat” . “Food as Medicine”. I’m sure you’ve heard these phrases before but have you seriously considered the power in those words? Food as medicine refers to using nutritional habits to prevent and treat disease; what you eat can heal and nourish or it can destroy. It is no coincidence that rising rates of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer , inflammatory and autoimmune disorders and other chronic diseases correlate with the increase in processed and packaged foods, salt, sugar and saturated fat in our diet.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) , 80% of cardiovascular deaths- heart attack, stroke- are preventable and caused by high blood pressure, high cholesterol, low fiber , fruit and vegetables diet and smoking.
