We know that health is the most valuable thing we have in life yet, with the stresses of modern living, it's not always easy to maintain. These days it's too easy to eat fast, eat heavy and eat wrong - the wrong foods in the wrong way at the wrong times - which only adds up to poor health.
It's a forgotten secret that food is medicine, that we really are what we eat and that holistic nutrition is a key ingredient in the recipe for optimal health. As the classical texts say “When diet is wrong medicine is of no use, when diet is correct, medicine is of no need.”
