Food As Medicine – Food has been used as a preventative to disease for over 4000 years by physicians of natural medicine. Food is a major determinant of health that is directly under our control. We cannot always control pollution, hereditary factors, noise, environment, and the social and emotional behaviour of others, but we can certainly choose what and what not to eat.

Many people accept a level of ill health as normal and put up with symptoms that are considered by the medical profession as part of the human condition. This is not so; we are all conceived with the potential to be healthy and a capacity to enjoy life to the full.

The quality of the food we eat and the influence that processed foods have on our bodies’ has placed us under an incredible strain. In typical western societies the price we pay is virtually half the population suffering from digestive dysfunction, leading towards more serious health issues.

Today, at least one out of every two people experience food intolerances to common types of foods or allergens and alarmingly, an increasing number of people are developing Cancers, Alzheimers, Multiple Sclerosis & ME. Conditions that can be caused by an over load of toxins in the body.
