If you follow this blog, you know I am constantly talking about using food as medicine or in other words eating healthy so you can avoid conventional medicines as much as possible. Have you ever listened to a commercial for a pharmaceutical drug or read the paperwork that comes with a prescription? If not, you should. Yes, medications are often necessary, I take meds myself, but by eating healthy you can often cut your medicines way back and sometimes eliminate them all together! One of the most important things about using food as medicine is being allowed to remove some of the worry over the oft times frightening side effects of modern drugs. Over the years as I have done much research, I have cut back my prescription drugs tremendously. I now take very few drugs and I feel better than ever. If you are not currently eating a healthy diet, start today to make improvements in your food choices. You will be glad you did.
