Hippocrates Wisdom and Coffee

Today’s post is by guest blogger Manuel @kaloygwapo for Davisfnp.

Leave your drugs in the chemist’s pot if you can cure the patient with food.  Let your food be your medicine, and let your medicine be your food.  Hippocrates

You are what you eat. Nutritious foods can act as your medicine to treat diseases and prevent illnesses. The foods we consume today are loaded with fats, sugars, salt, chemical additives, and preservatives.

The nutritive contents of mass produced foods are removed during processing. Also genetically-modified (GMO) agricultural products pose health risks. With our busy lifestyles, people choose fast food rather than prepare their own meals at home. In his documentary  Super Size Me, Morgan Spurlock consumed only fast food for thirty days. As a result, his health suffered.

During his experiment he ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner exclusively at McDonald’s, trying everything on the menu at least once. He super sized his meal when ever it was offered, and he always finished everything on his plate.

The result? He suffered…

  • Weight gain
  • mood swings
  • palpitations
  • headaches
  • increased blood pressure

After finishing the film, he switched to and remains on a vegan diet.

Do you know we are exposed to toxins and free radicals in our food, water, air, beauty products and household cleaners?  During the industrial age, synthetically made medicines were invented. The synthetic drugs replaced natural modalities. They target a specific disease rather than treating the body as a whole. Often resulting in unwanted side effects and interactions with other drugs. The rise of modern drugs and their side effects contradict another Hippocrates quote: Primum non nocere. (First, do no harm).

One of the biggest tragedies of human civilization is the precedents of chemical therapy Over nutrition. It’s a substitution of artificial therapy over nature, of poisons over food, in which we are feeding people poisons trying to correct the reactions of starvation. Dr. Royal Lee, January 12, 1951

How can we protect ourselves from toxins in our environment? Can we treat our hidden diseases in a natural and holistic way?

Our body has the ability to maintain a healthy state.  It’s our job to keep ourselves healthy with our diet and lifestyle choices. Iif you don’t take care of your health, then Hippocrates will probably tell you…If you are not your own doctor, you are a fool 

One thing you can do is change your coffee. The coffee most people drink is acidic, and acidic drinks can pose health problems. Change your coffee, change your life. Consider alkaline coffee and Ganoderma.
