As Hippocrates Said, “Let Food be thy Medicine!”
Not too long ago, before the rise of modern chemistry, humans intuitively understood the power of plants to heal.
Through eons of experimentation, early humans learned which plants heal, and which should be avoided. They figured out that if they ate honey when they were sick, they got better faster, and chewing on valerian root would help them fall asleep. They ate a plant-based diet, and always in season. Farm-to-table wasn’t a hip trend, it was their lives.
Fast forward to a post-industrial revolution humanity so obsessed with convenience that we gladly throw out a millennia of natural knowledge in exchange for a cheeseburger and an aspirin. There has been a growing movement in recent years, supported by a lot of strong science, to “return to our roots,” so to speak.
