"Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food" - Hippocrates.
That's the message from the founding father of modern medicine and the controversial film Food Matters by Producer-Directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch, who also directed the 2012 documentary Hungry for Change along with Carlo Ledesma. 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 modern society is getting sicker. Food Matters uncovers the trillion-dollar worldwide "sickness industry" that involves the healthcare, pharmaceutical, and food industries. Discover scientifically verifiable solutions for overcoming illness via non-GMO organic foods or "raw foods." In what promises to be the most contentious idea put forward, the filmmakers have interviewed several leading nutritionists and natural healing experts who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with poor food choices but that the right kind of healthy foods and detox supplements can treat chronic illnesses like heart disease.
This documentary film helps us rethink the belief systems fed to us by our modern medical and healthcare establishments. The interviewees point out that not every problem requires costly medical attention and reveal many alternative therapies that can be more effective and economical, less harmful and invasive than conventional medical treatments. Realize the impact whole foods can have on your health, from weight loss to overall wellness.
