Todays theme is Healing health problems with Diet & Nutrition
Hippocrates recommended using food before resorting to any other medicine, and his principles are just as pertinent today. Letting medicine be our food and food be our medicine is all very well in principle, but what food, and what medicine? Cutting through the hype and fads around food, here is a clear and logical introduction to medicinal foods, ways of preparation and eating for optimum health, using material based on the latest nutritional research and a few thousand years of traditional experience.

Film - Simply Raw - Reversing Diabetes in 30 daysThis is an independent documentary film that chronicles six Americans with diabetes who switch to a diet consisting entirely of vegan, organic, uncooked food in order to reverse disease without pharmaceutical medication. The six are challenged to give up meat, dairy, sugar, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, soda, junk food, fast food, processed food, packaged food, and even cooked food for 30 days. The film follows each participant's remarkable journey and captures the medical, physical, and emotional transformations brought on by this radical diet and lifestyle change. We witness moments of struggle, support, and hope as what is revealed, with startling clarity, is that diet can reverse disease and change lives. Additional wisdom is provided by Morgan Spurlock, Woody Harrelson, Rev. Michael Beckwith, David Wolfe and Doctors Fred Bisci, Joel Fuhrman, and Gabriel Cousens.Duration:: 90 mins
