Food is more and more recognized as an important healing force. About two-thirds of all deaths are directly affected by improper diet, and poor eating habits play a large part in the modern society’s most common killers– coronary heart disease, stroke, atherosclerosis, diabetes and some cancers.
Healing with food is not haphazard. Food acts according its various therapeutic properties, although its properties are often less specific and its actions less drastic than those of herbs or other medicines. Food also acts as a foundation medicine. It is sometimes slower to take effect, but more profoundly affects all systems of the body. If diet is used correctly for prevention and treatment, other medicines are required less, if at all.
The diseases that can be helped through dietary treatment are follows:
- Blood Sugar Imbalance (Diabetes, Hypoglycemia)
- The Stomach and Intestines (Stomach Ulcer, Colitis&Enteritis, Diverticulosis &Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Celiac Disease, Dysentery, Diarrhea, Constipation)
- Blood Disorders (Blood Deficiency, Bleeding, Menstrual Disorders)
- Degenerative Disorders (Rheumatic and Arthritic Conditions, Alcoholism&other Intoxicant Abuses, Asthma, AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis-MS, Genital Herpes, Severe Skin Diseases, Schizophrenia& other Mental Illness)
