Drugs or food?

Here is a dilemma! Do you want to load yourself up with drugs, in order to try and balance out whatever elements you either think or maybe somebody tells you that you are suffering a shortage of? Would you want to think of food as your medicine? If not, why not? After all, it's the oldest and simplest form of medicine. Hippocrates said so, and he was the "father of medicine", with doctors all having to swear the Hippocratic oath before they can gain their medical qualifications.

Let’s leave aside those people who are totally convinced that humans are only meant to eat meat.

Who's tried a “Wheatgrass shot”? Or Broccoli Sprout juice”? Wheatgrass Juice has been a staple of the high-energy health food crowd for many years. For me they contribute to a feeling of well-being……and more! They’re not to everyone’s taste, but hey, it may be unfortunate that some don’t like it, but it will be fine for the majority. Those who really struggle, but relish the value, will learn to mix it with some other juice, which is no problem.

Some people would be delighted to win one Nobel prize. Very few have been exceptional and awarded two. One such was Dr Linus Pauling. One of the more memorable things he said was that “you can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment to a mineral deficiency.”

I’m often reminded to refer back to God’s pharmacy. No, that’s not a chemist in the sky, but a reference to the amazing similarity between many of the vegetables and fruits available to us, and our key organs. Whether or not you are religious, and whatever that religion may be, it’s slightly spooky how so many of our key vegetables look so similar to the principal organs, which they are best suited to supporting.

Our bodies orchestrate endless biochemical reactions that create and maintain life.  Some are called enzymatic processes and they are characterized by changing a molecule from one substance into another.  This is how a plant or our bodies convert the foods we eat into into things like plant tissue or for us humans its bone, ligaments, finger nails, hair and tissue.
