Nutrition for Medical Care

Hippocrates famous quote, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” — which we translated to “food is medicine” and used as Nutrition motto. Still to this day medical doctors and historians consider Hippocrates to be the founder of Medicine. Hippocrates was ahead of his time when, around the year 400 B.C, advised that prevention and treatment of diseases first and foremost by eating a nutrient-dense diet.

The Ancient Greeks weren’t the only ones to propagate this. Many traditional systems of healing which have been practiced throughout history — including Ayuvedic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine, for example — have taught for thousands of years that food is medicine and a healthy diet is a powerful tool for protecting one’s health.
