Healthy Food is the new medicine

Healthy Food could be the new medicine

It’s easy to go to the hospital and get medicines prescribed once you are sick. But once used to this method, it just ends up being a cycle which repeats again and again.

And this is why; the doctors in the United States are now trying to figure out a different approach to overcome the diseases. The movement is kick started by Dr. Richard Collins who is also known as “The Cooking Cardiologist”.

Collins is showing patients how they should cook if they want to avoid heart diseases.

“Americans love salt, sugar and fat. But we need to promote the consumption of whole foods, such as fresh vegetables, whole grains and plant-based proteins, in proper portions if we are going to take on and prevent the unsustainable growth of cardiovascular heart disease.” She said.

A full blown cultural evolution is being targeted by the American College of Life Style Medicine.

“Once we have rallied a team of professionals to promote healthy eating, we will need to reach out to parents and grandparents — those who have the most interest in a child’s welfare — and who should be outraged by the obesity and diabetes epidemic we are witnessing in the U.S., and begin what should become a full-blown cultural revolution to encourage the consumption of real foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, lentils, nuts, seeds and water for thirst that can each have health promoting effects due to the essential nutrients derived from whole real food ingredients,” David Katz, President of American College of Life Style Medicine told.
