Let Food be Thy Medicine & Thy Medicine be Thy Food

by Chef Sequoia

The above quote is from Hippocrates, the father of Western Medicine, 460-377BC

The world has changed a lot since Hippocrates said those beautiful words.  In fact it is as if he never said them.  Today we tend to think of being healthy as just getting through the day, making a living, or not dropping dead.  We think good health is the absence of disease.  We look at the body as a bunch of different bits and pieces, we have all sorts of different doctors, the ear, nose, and throat guy; the skin guy; the heart guy and then when things go wrong we concentrate on the disease itself – like the oncologist, the cancer guy.  Modern science is constantly focusing  it’s microscope, seeing tinier and tinier bits and pieces, trying to figure out the puzzle of disease.  Not health…….the disease.   We have convinced ourselves that our health has nothing to do with what we eat.   We spend lots of money and time buying the best trinkets and gadgets of top quality and when it comes to what we eat or put in our bodies we run to the nearest fast food restaurant because it is easy.  It’s convenient.  We think cooking and preparing food is just too hard!  Baloney!  We have created a separation between food and illness in our culture.

The time has come when we have to treat ourselves, our bodies and our health with the most nutritious ingredients to support our bodies , our organs so we can maintain good health, good energy, good mental health.  So we have the stamina and energy to do good work, be good people, and to have the energy to help others.  To enjoy life and all the blessings that are here for us.
