Nutrition As A Way To Heal
This echos what I have been saying for a long time, changing the way we eat and what we eat will have profound on our health as the Lond Descent continues.
Several times a month, you can find a doctor in the aisles of Ralph's market in Huntington Beach, Calif., wearing a white coat and helping people learn about food. On one recent day, this doctor was Daniel Nadeau, wandering the cereal aisle with Allison Scott, giving her some ideas on how to feed kids who studiously avoid anything that tastes healthy.
"Have you thought about trying smoothies in the morning?" he asks her. "The frozen blueberries and raspberries are a little cheaper, and berries are really good for the brain."
Scott is delighted to get food advice from a physician who is program director of the nearby Mary and Dick Allen Diabetes Center, part of the St. Joseph Hoag Health alliance. The center's "Shop with Your Doc" program sends doctors to the grocery store to meet with any patients who sign up for the service, plus any other shoppers who happen by with questions.
Food companies have spent millions of dollars on research to find that perfect combination of salty and sweet, which causes you to eat and eat and eat their product. Remember the slogan, "You Can't Eat Just One"? That's what these companies want, you to eat their packaged fake food simulation until the bag is empty, then go out and buy another.
