Food as Medicine

Food as Medicine

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”


Culinary medicine can be one of the first lines of defense for the body. The purpose of food has been changed many times for uses such as comfort and pleasure. But the purpose of food as medicine is still widely unheard of. The truth is that food being used as medicine has been around for centuries. Food can aid in helping many diseases and ailments.

For example, digestion issues can often be treated with blackberries. Blueberries and grapes are very good to the skin and helping with aging markers. Pain and inflammation can be helped by cherries, ginger, turmeric, salmon, flax seeds, and raw walnuts. Crushed garlic is known to relax blood vessels, which allows for better blood flow to the heart. Avocado is good for the skin and also helps to prevent artery hardening. Artichokes can help lower cholesterol. Finally, and arguably the best, chocolate is known to improve hydration and also helps with circulation for the skin.

Different kinds of food can help with numerous diseases and ailments to the body. Food as medicine is simply another way to try and deal with these issues naturally. It is all about prevention. The best thing you can do for your body is to keep it as natural as possible. The body is powerful; it can often cure itself if you allow it to. Next time you’re in pain, try a bowl of cherries or add some flax seed into your smoothie. Instead of popping a pill for digestion problems, try adding blackberries into your meal. Let your body return back to nature and try healing it naturally.
