"Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food" - Hippocrates.
That is the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed in the controversial new documentary film FoodMatters from Producer-Directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch. The focus of the film is in helping us rethink the belief systems fed to us by our modern medical and health care establishments.
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 that modern society is getting sicker. FoodMatters sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide 'Sickness Industry' and exposes a growing body of scientific evidence proving that nutritional therapy can be more effective, more economical, less harmful and less invasive than most conventional medical treatments.
The filmmakers have interviewed several world leaders in nutrition and natural healing, including Charlotte Gerson, who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses as fatal as terminally diagnosed cancer.
