More than two thousand years ago, the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates advised us how important foods are for our health. Today, medical science continues to substantiate this wise adage. Studies have found that populations whose diets feature significant amounts of certain foods have a significantly lower risk of developing many chronic degenerative diseases including, but not limited to, cardiovascular disease, type II diabetes mellitus, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and depression. In fact, five of the top ten causes of death in the United States are associated with the Standard American Diet. An ever-growing body of research has brought both scientists and nutritionists to propose that we can significantly decrease morbidity and mortality, and dramatically improve our chances of living a longer, healthier more vibrant life, simply by eating healthier foods, a concept now lost from western medicine.
So many ailments can be helped with simple adjustments to diet and lifestyle.
From indigestion to allergies and arthritis.
