FMTV - Food As Medicine

Food As Medicine

Runtime: 86m 59s | Release date: 2016

The Center for Disease Control reports that nearly half the population in the United States of America lives with at least one chronic disease. These diseases are the leading cause of death and disability. They are also the most costly and preventable of all health conditions in the country. It is imperative that we start changing our food culture now. 'Food As Medicine' follows the growing movement of using food to heal chronic disease. From individuals empowering themselves to change what is on their plates, to hospital groups administering vegetable Rx programs, we can already see the change happening around us. Join us on the journey of food, health, community and hope!

Loved the film. I'm like one of the participants overwhelmed with information and stuck where and how to start. I suddenly have digestion problems and suffer from heart burn. Is there a Food for Medicine group in Australia? I'm located in Sydney and would like a local group where we would exchange recipes and participate in cooking together.

Hi Katharina, glad to hear you loved the film and sorry to hear about your current health condition. Suffering heartburn can be really challenging, however, we also believe that it can represent a wonderful opportunity to listen to the body and learn about the healing powers of the body. We have seen first hand how natural approaches can help to address the underlying cause of heartburn. Diet, lifestyle and the wider environment all play an integral part in the manifestation and management of this condition. Here's an article which explores 7 natural remedies for this condition: http://www.foodmatters.com/article/7-natural-ways-to-soothe-indigestion-and-heartburn. Secondly, switching to an alkaline, whole food diet is essential. If you are new to healthy eating or just need some extra inspiration, we highly recommend trying our 21 Day Gluten Free Program. This program is filled with easy, affordable and delicious whole food recipes that anyone can make. Within this program, you will be guided each day with emails, recipe videos, online yoga classes, printable shopping lists and more. You can access the program here: https://www.fmtv.com/programs/21-day-program. Additionally, I would also recommend watching the following videos on gut health and healing the gut naturally: https://www.fmtv.com/programs/the-healthy-gut-summit and https://www.fmtv.com/watch/7-ways-to-healing-the-gut-naturally. Lastly, we would also suggest seeking one-on-one support from a Health Practitioner as they will be able to provide advice with consideration to your specific circumstance. You can browse through our incredible hand-picked Practitioners, and book in for a consultation here: https://store.foodmatters.com/collections/health-practitioners. I hope this helps, wishing you wellness! ❤️ ~ Iris

As a plant-based/vegan eater, I like hearing your guests sharing their stories about plant phytochemicals helping regulate the immune system, brain health, hormone balancing. DAIRY and MEAT and white foods contribute to autoimmune diseases! Need to know how the people with MS stopped the progression of the disease, so please have notes giving such information at the end of your videos please.

Love the film but I do have one question. When making the goat yogurt didn't the heat kill the live organisms?

When making yogurt, the milk temperature is lowered to about 100 degrees (F) before adding the live organisms. If the organisms are added while heating the milk, they will die off. The basic process is to heat the milk to 180 degrees (F), cool to 100 degrees (F) and then add the organisms. Good luck!

I enjoyed this movie. It seemed free from bias. I also liked that it talked about food culture. I had not heard this term before, but had recently been thinking about that concept. However, overall I don't feel like I learned anything that could be applied.It was enjoyable to watch though.

wow! Bravo to everyone that was apart of making this film!! I believe true healing comes from a supported community, confronting your emotions and insecurities as well as really connecting with the why's of what you are doing- this film presented all of this, not to mention had all of my heroes in it. Although this film didn't dive into what specific protocol they were doing, it presented the raw feelings of making lifestyle changes and showed the part of the healing journey that most of us don't share with others- the vulnerabilities. LOVED IT. One thing vegan's, vegetarian's, paleo-ians, pescatarians, etc, etc have in common is the wake-up call to the awareness of where we are sourcing our food and the quality of the food that we are receiving. All dogma's aside we are all striving for a similar outcome, to heal ourselves, the planet and the animals. I like how it showed Sabina right off the bat diving into organ meats, sourcing them locally and talking to the person sourcing them. This is the connection we need to be reminded of.
