Hippocrates:“Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food.”

Food builds us, gives us energy and influences us biologically and psychologically. Each meal can change your strength, mood and emotions. Often, it serves as the only comfort when we are sad, unhappy and lonely. Food also affects our health. The right food choices can improve our body, mind and mood, while the wrong one can cause different illnesses in our body. Medication can help, but sometimes we can become so ill that medicines can no longer help and the disease or illness keeps coming back. In such a scenario no herbal preparation or medicine can come to aid. When this happens, we will usually realize, that the only thing that can help us is to change our diet. Nutrition is along with physical activity (work), the key to everything. Proper nutrition is the component in your life that gives a good quality, healthy and a long life.

It was discovered a long time ago by Hippocrates from Kos (460 BC – 380 BC), the most famous Greek physician of all time and the so called father of scientific medicine, whose saying on food should be the basis on which healthy nutrition is based.

By consuming heathy food, in a way we feed on good energy and renew our body’s energy. The only thing we need to master is what to eat and when to eat.  This way the good foods we choose to consume will give us s positive energy and lead us towards health.
