I am sure you have heard the sayings “Let food be your Medicine” and “You are what you eat” Let Food be your Medicine was attributed to the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates considered to be the Father of natural medicine. He strongly believed that any ailment was related to poor nutrition and bad eating habits. Henry Lindlahr, the naturopathic doctor who cured himself of diabetes and obesity with diet published “You Are What You Eat: How to Win and Keep Health with Diet” in 1942.
Now, two nutritionist, James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch are asking whatever happened to the belief that food is your medicine? The latest research shows that food is much more than calories, carbohydrate, protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other phytochemicals. Food contains information molecules essential for your cells to function properly. These information molecules are destroyed by modern food processing.
Your diet has a huge impact on your health
A lot of research into food and illness shows that the food we eat has a great effect on our health and wellbeing. Food does matter, so how is it that we have come so far away from this concept? This is the central question that James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch ask in their riveting documentary Food Matters. This fascinating documentary brings together the thoughts and opinions of some of the world’s leaders in nutrition and natural healing. Watch the Trailer below.
No money in health
Andrew Saul, one natural health pioneer, points out that the answer seems to be that there is no money in wellness, only in ill health. ‘Good health makes a lot of sense but not a lot of dollars’. Drug research takes precedent over nutritional research.
Food Matters is bold film that is designed to make you think. It uncovers the business of disease and reinforces the known facts that with the right kind of foods, supplements, and detox processes, we can prevent, halt and even reverse chronic illness.
The right food and supplements can cure
When Roy Colquhoun, James father, became ill his professional background convinced him that the answers to his problems would come
from main stream medicine. He saw a range of specialist medical practitioners including psychiatrists and psychologists in his determined quest to get himself well again.
But after 5 years on heavy doses of anti depressants, antipsychotics, anxiety medication and sleeping tablets nothing was working and he did not think he had anywhere else to turn. He says that suicide was becoming a frightening and very real option.
Fortunately, at the time, his son James Colquhoun and his partner Laurentine ten Bosch were traveling the world interviewing leaders in nutrition and natural medicine for the production of their DVD ‘Food Matters’
With the knowledge they acquired through all the research, theyknew they could help Roy and had the answers. So with a lot of persuasion Roy went on a 10 day cleanse eating only raw food and no alcohol continuing on a special diet afterwards.
At the same time he went cold turkey and stopped taking all the prescription medication over night and replaced the medication with clinical doses of vitamins and minerals. (Never do this without expert advice and supervision). Amazingly enough he did not have any withdrawal effects, has been off medication for 2 years and has fully recovered.
With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what’s wrong with our malnourished bodies, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting sicker.
Juicing for Cancer
Charlotte Gerson, the daughter of Dr Max Gerson, who cured her of TB through his controversial detoxification methods that were later used to cure cancer, is another expert who features on the film. You can learn more about juicing for cancer and the Gerson Therapy from her.
Food Matters brings together many more experts from the field of natural healing to present startling evidence that will change your life forever.
Prevent and reverse illness
Food Matters discusses the importance of Nutrition & Natural Therapies for preventing and reversing chronic illness. The film shows which foods and therapies are ideal for optimal health and have been proven to help with Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Depression and many more Chronic Illnesses and everyday conditions.
To ensure the information in their film is available to as many people around the world as quickly as possible, Colquhuon and ten Bosch have made the film available on DVD & for viewing online.
