Let Food be Your Medicine, Medicine Be Your Food

10 Reasons to Choose Food as Medicine from "Health Blog."

Two of my favorites:

Synergy and complexity
Food is complex and so are you. The two have been working together for millions of years. Science and its main contributor--the drug industry like to identify one element, find out what it does, isolate it and put it in a pill. Nature doesn’t work like that and neither do you.

To keep the status quo
Your internal status quo is maintained by a whole host of delicate interacting mechanisms. It’s biological poetry. The complex metabolic pathways of your body need raw materials... high quality nutrients in sufficient quantities. Your job is to provide those raw materials. If not, expect a breakdown sometime soon.
