Fresh pickled cabbage - traditional polish sauerkraut

Let Food Be Thy Medicine

let food be thy medicine

FOOD provides the body the resources it requires to maintain health…THIS is the purpose of eating! The macronutrients we consume (carbohydrates, protein and fat) breakdown to micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), which serve as the catalyst to every function in the body. Provided this information, it becomes very clear how reasonable and logical it seems to be able to use food as supplementation and to heal the body. So then the question becomes, if this is so true and makes so much sense, why is it not working for the millions of people consciously striving for better health, with little (short lived) to no success? Well…here is our answer: Treating symptoms with cookie cutter protocols involving elimination diets, nutrient specific supplementation, diets involving an imbalance of macronutrients (ie. high protein/low carb, high fat, vegetarian, etc), detox programs, this food or that food, is a for sure quick and rapid fall down … Continue Reading

We understand food alone may not be the ONLY healing tool for some, however we do know it is essential to our survival, safely adding, the nourishment we receive from our food is essential to any process of healing.
