From the Food Matters website:

As summarized on the Food Matters’ website, by watching this film you will get answers to the following questions, and straight facts on:

  • How you can use food as medicine
  • Who needs vitamins?
  • Is organic really better?
  • How safe is your food?
  • Foods that fight anxiety and depression
  • Natural therapies for cancer
  • Which drugs might do more harm than good?
  • The best ways to detox, lose weight and keep it off! 

Food Matters really delivers a well-rounded view of the elements required for health, starting with the food supply itself, and the devastating effects modern food manufacturing has had on the quality of our food. Soil depletion is a direct result of modern agricultural practices, and has led to crops containing fewer nutrients. The answer, of course, lies in reverting back to organic and sustainable agriculture. The largest study conducted into organic food confirmed that the idea that organically grown foods are healthier for you is not wishful fantasy. It’s a fact.

That four-year long study discovered that:

  • Organic fruit and vegetables contain up to 40 percent more antioxidants
  • Organic produce had higher levels of beneficial minerals like iron and zinc
  • Milk from organic herds contained up to 90 percent more antioxidants

When evaluating food and nutrition it’s also imperative to understand what happens to the nutrient content of a food when it is processed, and the potential harm that can be caused by added chemicals. Our food stores are filled to the brim with ultra-processed foods that not only contain ingredients grown in depleted, pesticide-laden soils to begin with, but are further depleted of real nutrients through processing; in the end providing very little beyond empty calories.

What is Holistic Nutrition Anyways?

What is Holistic Nutrition?

Most of us associate the word “holistic” with hippies, strange herbs, and being barefoot. But as it turns out, the father of holistic nutrition was no hippy at all. He was a lawyer and a politician, who also studied medicine and chemistry.

In the mid 1800s Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin was lying on his deathbed. It was two months before his death that his most famous work was published – a brilliant essay, not about politics, but about food. He titled it: The Psychology of Taste.
