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.

Both of these films can be found on Amazon in Instant Video or for purchase as well as on Netflix. Just follow the links above. If you would like to go directly to the source, check out the Food Matters website. You can buy directly from them, just be aware that the charges are from Australia so it might be easier to use PayPal in case your credit card company blocks the transaction. They have several other films available as well as guides and recipe books.
