Food Is Medicine…End of Story

I found this post on another platform today by Dr. Mark Hyman…

Mounting research shows that there is no magic bullet to treat heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, allergies, digestive disorders, headaches, fatigue, or any of the myriad problems we suffer from in the 21st century.

But increasing evidence also shows us something else.

It shows that food is the most powerful “drug” we have not just to prevent, but also treat, cure, and reverse most chronic illnesses. Food contains information that speaks to our genes, not just calories for energy.

What you eat programs your body with messages of health or illness. We are learning from research in the field of nutrigenomics, that food “talks” to our DNA switching on or off genes that lead to health or disease.

Nothing more is needed from me on this topic.

Do You Want Help?

Would you like to have more energy, lose weight, sleep better, and balance your hormones? I am launching a 5 week Sugar Detox Program beginning February 3rd.

This program is open to anyone who:

  • would like to get control of their sugar cravings
  • feel better
  • have an abundance of energy
  • and an overall increase in well-being.

Aren’t you tired of feeling bloated and lethargic?

If you continue to follow the path you’re on, where will it lead you in six months? a year? Isn’t it time to take a different approach?

What you have done in the past hasn’t worked or at least has not stuck. I can help you change that. Click here for a free consultation. We’ll discuss your challenges and your goals for the coming year and see if we’re a good fit. You have nothing to lose except those nasty cravings.

I help women living with or at risk for developing heart disease or other chronic illness that we can manage through lifestyle and nutrition changes. Or maybe you’re on the verge of developing heart disease, or diabetes, or another lifestyle related condition. If so, let’s chat. For a free consultation with me, click here.

    I learned how powerful eating the right foods were when I was diagnosed with non alcholic fatty liver disease. Eating the right foods not only corrected my liver but I also lost over 30 pounds.

      I love your story of triumph over NAFLD Martha. That shows how powerful your food choices are in managing your health. Keep up the good work.

    Karen, I really like Dr. Hyman. I saw him first on a PBS special. Now this is enough to knock people’s socks off: food “talks” to our DNA switching on or off genes that lead to health or disease.’ Thanks so much for this post. I have been tuned in to food as medicine for many years. Thanks for bringing it forefront now.

      Thanks Kebba. It’s been my passion for the last 12 years since I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009.

    You are starting to make me a believer that I need to make some food choice changes in my life.

      Lynn…I’m happy to get on a call and chat. The worst that could happen is that you are no worse off than you are now. But you’re more likely to walk away with some good action steps.
