‘Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.’ – Hippocrates 400 B.C.
Nutrition prevents disease and encourages health. We are not what we eat, we are what we absorb – health starts within our cells. Food is the nature’s edible pharmacy and, science has been studying the components and the actions of different nutrients on body systems in context of disease management and the links between nutrient deficiency and increase in certain diseases. Food should be more alkaline than acid. And supplementing must be understood and mindfully guided. Eating can be cool and sociable. It can be beautiful and creative and we would love to show you how easy and enjoyable eating for health can be.
Food plays an important role in maintaining good health and turning around disease patterns. We provide nice to the taste buds recipes to help improve the health of systems:
- Digestive Problems
- Heart and Circulatory System
- Immune System
- Nervous System
- Reproductive System
Many ancient cultures relied upon food remedies as their source of medicine (Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine). The relationship between food and physiological functions has been in evidence for millennia. Nature’s edible pharmacy is medicinal food which is powerful and yet common. We organise it into categories:
- Nuts & Seeds
- Culinary Herbs & Spices
‘The reality is that through billions of cellular divisions every moment of every day, our body is repairing itself. And that the foods we eat, the nutraceuticals we take, the exercise we do or don’t do, the relationships we have or don’t have and the environment we live in, all have a direct influence on whether life-prolonging qualities are switched on or switched off in each one of those cells.’
– Miguel Toribio-Mateas
