    Is Food As Good As Medicine?

    Is Food As Good As Medicine

    The documentary The Magic Pill details a theme we have all heard before, that the way we eat can potentially change our health. It challenges the concept that food is as good as or an alternative to medicine. While nutrition is key there are certainly other factors to keep in mind when it comes to health.

    What Is The Ketogenic Diet?

    The diet featured in the documentary is the keto diet, a high-fat, moderate protein, and low-carb meal plan. It is suggested that this way of eating won’t just help you lose weight but that it can reverse cancer, liver disease, diabetes and more. Also, that in just 5 weeks you can reduce or eliminate many prescription drugs. It’s similar to Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s claims that food can heal, although Dr. Fuhrman’s diet is significantly more extreme.

    Does It Work?

    Not only are these claims extreme, but there is no one diet that works for everyone. A less restrictive alternative that can deliver the exact same nutritional benefits can be achieved by working with a nutritionist to create a plan catered to your nutritional needs. Working with a nutritionist is also a more sustainable way to go.

    The Easy Changes We Can All Make

    There are a few changes that we can make that pertain to almost everyone regardless of age, gender or health. This includes reducing our sugar and processed food intake and increasing our water and antioxidant intake.

    We all know that poor nutrition can negatively impact our health so by improving our diet we can often improve our health. However, we must not forget factors such as stress, lifestyle habits, sleep, and hereditary predisposition.
