Let Food Be Thy Medicine

I recently watched two documentaries by the Food Matters crew. The first was their original documentary, Food Matters, and the second was entitled Hungry for Change. This quote by Hippocrates (460-370 BC), the father of western medicine, is the opening to Food Matters. The Hippocratic Oath is still recited to this day by medical doctors upon graduation. Both of these films focus on the lack of understanding of how our body processes food, and more importantly how it processes the food that is found in the typical American diet. Furthermore, both of these films touch on the growing amount of evidence that links proper food choices to improvement in our own health and to the ability to treat many diseases and ailments that are common in today’s society.

Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food. – Hippocrates

Theses two films have renewed my focus on nutrition and prompted me to order the Hungry For Change Mastery Program which includes all of the full interviews with the experts from the film. I received my DVD’s a few days ago and have already dug in and watched a few of them. I plan on writing a featured post for each of the two films and also one for the Mastery Program as well. I would recommend both of these films to anyone and everyone. They can really open your eyes to the benefits and consequences of typical food choices.

Dr. Dan Murphy’s Nutritional Reading List 2011

I mentioned in a previous post that Dr. Dan Murphy provided us with a recommended reading list on nutrition at the chiropractic seminar that I attended at the beginning of December 2011. Dr. Murphy is known in the chiropractic profession as being one of the most intelligent men on the planet. Dr. Murphy regularly reviews the current literature and research studies and passes on this information on to the rest of the profession. You can find more information about Dr. Murphy at his website www.danmurphydc.com. Below are links to these books available at Amazon.com. For the purpose of full disclosure, these are affiliate links meaning we will receive a small commission from Amazon if you purchase these books from them. Most of these books, however, are probably available from your public library. I have not yet had a chance to read these books, but as I do, I will post individual reviews.
