Let food be thy medicine

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”-Hippocrates

Who hasn’t seen or heard Hippocrates’ famous quote about letting food be your medicine and your medicine your food? Hippocrates and his followers used diet to treat many illnesses, it’s not really clear what sort of success they had. However, this ancient idea that virtually all disease could be treated with diet, however much or little it was embraced by Hippocrates, has become an idée fixe in alternative medicine. Now in modern day science it is proven that diet is very important. Where there is healthy eating there is not much room for worry about medicine.
