For the first 5000 years of civilization, humans relied on foods and herbs for medicine. Only in the past 50 years have we forgotten our medicinal “roots” in favor of patent medicines. While pharmaceuticals have their value, we should not forget the well-documented, non-toxic and inexpensive healing properties of whole foods. Can nutrition really reverse disease?
Whole foods contain an elegant “symphony” of ingredients that we have only begun to appreciate due to the increasing sensitivity of our analytical equipment. The more that we analyze whole foods, the more we stand back with awe.
