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!

Please be advised that although we feel there are important messages in this film, we also acknowledge that there may be conflicting ideologies that challenge beliefs. We like to encourage our viewers to do their own diligent research to determine which is the right approach for them as we regard nutrition and health as being highly individualized and not a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

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.

Did not like this film...promoting meat as healing??? Are you kidding me? That's what causes a lot of illness. Really didn't talk about what the "healing foods" are either. There are better docs out there that do and explain how. Disappointed. Had to stop watching because it got me mad.
