“Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food” – Hippocrates. This is the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed in the controversial new documentary film – ‘Food Matters’ from Producer-Directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch.
With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our increasing tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what’s wrong with our malnourished bodies, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. The film ‘Food Matters’ sets about uncovering the trillion dollar/pound worldwide ‘sickness industry’ and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for overcoming illness naturally. Healing starts with having a positive belief system and is followed by a consistent action plan towards achieving total ‘mind-body’ health and well-being. Understanding some of the corporate motives behind the health care and pharmaceutical industries is a critical step in discovering what’s wrong with our current approaches to physical and mental illness as well as the treatment options traditionally on offer. Watching Food Matters is a useful first step in taking control of your health and seeing what science has to say about the natural options that exist.
For example: Juicing is an essential part of the healing process as it helps to deliver life-giving nutrients directly to the cells and eliminate toxins. This simple process builds immunity helping activate the body’s own healing mechanisms. A good quality ‘cold pressed’ juicer is an essential tool in the kitchen.
Using organic produce in the process of healing is another important consideration in allieviating the toxic burden on the body. Reducing toxic load in all forms is a primary aim so as to reduce the load on ones immune system allowing it to activate the bodies own healing mechanisms. It is also vitally important to remove unwanted toxins from the system that may be interfering with the natural pathways of the brain. The Food Matters Detox and Rejuvenation Guide is an informative guide that will teach you how to apply the principles addressed in the film. Included in it is a 3-day step-by-step guided detox program.
Sharing your ideas and successes with other like minded people is a great way to learn and grow. Healing is as much about good nutrition and good decisions as it is about connecting with like minded individuals in a nurturing environment.
