Food Matters: Education not medication!

“When people take vitamins, the vitamins don’t specifically do it. They enable the body to do it, they enable the body to heal itself. This is a totally different way of looking at it.” – Dr Andrew Saul

Husband and wife duo, James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch, have brought a life-changing documentary to our screens. The feature-length program focuses on the transformative power of good nutrition for our health, and the on-going battle against our poor eating habits and the monstrous influence of the pharmaceutical industry. Food Matters is a revolutionary film that looks into how our food is making us sick and why modern medicine fails to find a cure. Why don’t the health care, food and agriculture industries seem to care about our health?

Fast food concept with greasy fried restaurant take out as onion rings burger and hot dogs with fried chicken french fries and pizza as a symbol of diet temptation resulting in unhealthy nutrition.

Losing weight or having a healthier lifestyle is on most people’s to-do list. There’s an innate desire in all of us to live a long and healthy life. Nobody wants to die young; we want to live until we’re 100 and never miss out! However, with such easy access to “delicious” food on supermarket shelves and terrifying lack of education about how to properly nourish our bodies, it’s no wonder we’re struggling to turn that desire into action. It’s still harder to make long-term changes to our lifestyles that will transform our health for the better.

Food Matters shines a light on how our collective unawareness of what we’re actually eating has detrimental, and often fatal, consequences. Poor eating habits leave us shockingly malnourished and are responsible for killer illnesses such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. Imagine what if we could use our body’s natural healing power to prevent, and even cure, cancer? This documentary is here to prove we can! We choose to fuel our bodies with organic, plant-based diets which are rich in superfoods and completely devoid of additives, chemicals and toxins!

By eating correctly, we allow our body’s natural defenses to thrive and eventually, we would become incapable of developing cancer and many other deadly diseases. Unfortunately, pharmaceutical companies know that having a healthy population is not profitable. There’s the rub! Instead, we live in a world where there’s ‘a pill for every ill’. We’re programmed to think we need medication when we feel unwell. Good nutrition is never thought to be a ‘cure’. It doesn’t benefit the drug industry or medical institutions to advertise that a bad diet is the root cause of almost all ailments (diabetes, lupus, heart disease,cancer etc.), or that by improving our eating habits – especially upping our intake of vitamins – we can reverse them entirely.

In fact, most people leave hospital more malnourished than when they were admitted. A staggering 100,000 deaths a year are directly related to drug side effects or, at least related to modern medicine. There have been miraculous discoveries in nutritional therapy since the early 1900s but yet, we still know nothing about it, and the practice is illegal in most countries. Don’t believe me? Watch it for yourself!

Take the first step to a healthier, happier future and educate yourself by watching this informative documentary. A balance of diet, exercise and meditation is the key to optimum health and fulfilling life. The power is in our hands! But we must be willing to put in the hard work to make a change and improve our lives and those of our family and friends.
