My family and I watched this via Netflix awhile back and it confirmed so many things that I was raised on and also taught us quite a bit.
We’ve always eaten a somewhat healthy diet and avoided loading up on medicines unless absolutely neccesary, but watching this movie just confirmed this whole thought process of You are What You Eat even more in our family.
Here’s some info about the movie via their web site:
“Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food” – Hippocrates. That is the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed in the controversial new documentary film Food Matters from Producer-Directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch.
With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what’s wrong with our malnourished bodies, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. Food Matters sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide ‘sickness industry’ and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for overcoming illness naturally.
“With access to better information people invariably
make better choices for their health…”
In what promises to be the most contentious idea put forward, the filmmakers have interviewed several leading experts in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses as fatal as terminally diagnosed cancer.
The focus of the film is in helping us rethink the belief systems fed to us by our modern medical and health care establishments. The interviewees point out that not every problem requires costly, major medical attention and reveal many alternative therapies that can be more effective, more economical, less harmful and less invasive than conventional medical treatments.
The ‘Food Matters’ duo have independently funded the film from start to finish in order to remain as unbiased as possible, delivering a clear and concise message to the world. Food Matters.
And starting the week of October 1st, if registered, you’ll have the opportunity to watch this movie yourself.
If you haven’t seen it.. I highly suggest you do. Even if you don’t agree with everything in the movie.. you may come away with one or two bits of information that will encourage you about what you eat.
