“Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food.” So said Hippocrates.
At one point several years ago when I took a lot of medications regularly with my meals, my children (who had heard that quote from me a few times) used to laugh and say I was taking it too literally!
Seriously though, the more I learn about nutrition and its impact on the body, the more amazed and fascinated I am. And the more I want to learn. Books like Gut by Giulia Enders and The Mind-Gut Connection by Emeran Mayer MD have become interesting recreational reading for me.
I make and enjoy bone broth and have even tried to cook up some tasty liver. (Unsuccessfully, so far) (Open to suggestions.) Also, I’m happy to savour other more palatable foods with beautiful nutritional benefits such as blueberries. That is my kind of medicine.
