Healing with food

Everyone knows eating healthy is a must! We've all heard the saying about "An apple a day, keeps the doctor away!" Or the famous quote from Hippocrates, "Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food." But do we really know why?

Food has been used as a form of medicine dating back thousands of years ago. And yet, somewhere along the way, we've forgotten just what is 'healthy' and what is not. For years, I thought I had a very clear understanding on what healthy foods were and how to eat them. It wasn't until going to school that I really learned just what healthy truly is. Many people believe they understand how to eat well and what they should eat and what they should avoid. As time goes on, more additives and chemicals are added to our foods that many people do not recognize or are familiar with. How can one decide if something is healthy if they aren't even sure of what the ingredient is or how it's made?
