“Let food by thy medicine and medicine be thy food”….
….said the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, over two and a half thousand years ago. Yet today we tend you use food as ‘taste bud entertainment’ rather than the foundations for our well-being. In my mind we can actually do both. It is possible to enjoy our food whilst providing the fundamental building blocks for good nutrition to allow us to live a healthy and happy life, we just need to know what foods we need. I like to call them ‘functional’ food.
‘functional foods’ will assist you regain your health and wellbeing by altering your gut health dramatically….for the better.
