"Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine by thy food." Hippocrates
Recently I have had a number of friends recommend this film. Now that I have had a chance to view this film I am glad that they did and wish that I had sat down to watch it sooner.
This 80 minute documentary is a series of interviews with nutritionist,naturopaths,scientist, M.D.'s and medical journalist. Some of the most notable interviews in my opinion are with Ph. D, Therapeutic Nutrition Specialist and author, Andrew W Saul and founder of the Gerson Institute, Charlotte Gerson.
Foodmatters reinforces what many of us know in regards to the health industry, that of course our health is the last point of interest for these machines of profit. The film covers a wide variety of health related topics, specifically;
How to use food as medicine
Who needs vitamins?
Is organic better?
How safe is our food?
Natural treatments for lowering Cholesterol
Foods that fight Anxiety and Depression
Natural therapies for Cancer
Which drugs might do more harm than good?
The best ways to detox, lose weight and keep it off.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel though. The filmmakers do a great job of constantly reminding us that at the end of the day we are the ones who make the decision in regards to what we put in our body, in other words, "FOODMATTERS".
If you are interested in watching the trailer to the film or reading any number of reviews you can find the film online at http://www.foodmatters.tv/ As one of my friends so boldly stated, "What in the health are you waiting for?"
