Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. — Hippocrates, father of medicine, 431 B.C.
Hippocrates is considered the father of modern medicine. This famous quote is often used because it so succinctly expressed the importance of our daily food choices. The relevance this phrase has is stronger than ever. Nutrition is an underlying theme for just about every health concern we experience today.
To address the underlying causes, we must consider the influence our diet has on our wellbeing.
