Natural Food Cures
Natural Food Cures are the first and best choice for a healthy body.
Food! What is more basic then that. Every
living being on the planet needs food.
We know that we get energy and
nutrition from food. Many of us get some emotional comfort from certain
kinds of food.
The question is, do we still realize that there are healing qualities to food? Many of us are aware the Hippocrates said "Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food".
But I wonder if we think that was just for yesteryear's or do we
understand that the food we eat plays a tremendous part in the over
state of our health.
Elsewhere on this site we have listed many
of the health giving qualities of other foods, and here are some great
traditional Japanese choices.Food for Thought...Food for Health... Food for Life!

been thought of as an anti-aging food. Because this food is thought to

positive effect on our health(in our humble opinion).
I have never known a healthy person on drugs, I have known lots of
healthy people who eat lots of whole grains, vegetables, fruit, fish,
nuts and seeds. Lots of healthy people exercise, meditate and actively
