Let Food Be Your Medicine

Slow the effects of Aging and promote Longevity with the Healing Power of Food.

Natural, nutrient-dense foods help protect against, mitigate and even cure many chronic diseases by igniting the body’s innate healing ability;  slow the effects of aging and promote longevity.

“Let food be your medicine” is a well-known quotation by Hippocrates, a physician and philosopher who lived in ancient Greece and is commonly considered the forefather of modern medical practice.

Despite the widespread familiarity with these words, it is not very clear to most people (including many practitioners and experts) how to interpret them, let alone apply them in their daily lives.

The fact is that nutrition deficiencies and toxicity from poor diets are linked to almost all modern health conditions, including some of the highest risk factors for mortality like obesity, diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer, says dr Josh Axe, a physician and practitioner of natural medicine and advocate of using food as medicine.

Natural, nutrient-dense foods are known to help protect against, mitigate and even cure many chronic diseases, slow the effects of aging and promote longevity. They are able to do so by decreasing and controlling inflammation in the body, by supporting detoxification and igniting the body’s innate healing ability. They help to balance hormones and ease age-related hormonal changes; they alkalize the body, which supports cellular renewal; they balance blood sugar levels, thereby preventing unhealthy weight gain and diabetes (proven to be behind Alzheimers and to fuel cancers and other chronic ailments); they detoxify and eliminate toxins; and they improve nutrient absorption – thereby multiplying their own positive effects.

Together we reconnoiter the foods that extinguish the raging flames of inflammation, which is at the root of many ailments and a major contributor to premature aging. We explore the foods that help balance hormones, promote skin and joint health and allow us to not only stay fit and healthy but to look radiant and younger naturally.

“The doctor of the future will give no medication but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
