Let Food Be Thy Medicine

As you think about what you put in your body, I ask you to consider this:

Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine, thy medicine shall be thy food.”

The Chinese Proverb states, “He that takes medicine and neglects diet, wastes the skill of the physician.”

William Shakespeare said, “Things sweet to taste prove in digestion sour.”

Here in America, we have the very simple proverb, “You are what you eat.”

The time has come that we stop treating our bodies like trash-bins and start taking responsibility for our health, making conscious decisions about what we eat and why we eat it. You have the power to decide what you put in your mouth and what you don’t.

Choose today to start treating your body as a temple, and decide that you are only going to eat and drink things that edify your health, rather than destroy it.

I will end with this very wise, Ancient Ayurvedic Proverb, “When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need.”

Enough said.

Live with Simplicity,
