Using Food As Medicine Is A Lifetime Of Nourishment

Using food as medicine and as a lifetime of nourishment is not about throwing substances into your system and hoping something happens internally.


It’s about making conscious choices and using the energetic effects of those specific foods, how they are prepared, to support and heal your high blood pressure and any other conditions, whether chronic or not.


2020 the year from hell is over, but it has left its mark. The stress, uncertainties, tiredness, irritability and feeling bloated.... its time for healing of the spirit, mind and soul.


You can show up strong, energetic and resilient for the life you want to live.


I was once a high blood pressure sufferer beaten down by my medication side effects that literally almost killed me: A swelling tongue slowly blocking off my airpipe, a persistent cough, and more.


My doctors didn’t know what more to do with me, my many symptoms overwhelmed them and me.

 

To survive I had to take matters into my own hands. So I changed by diet, lifestyle and started my own business, at first as a side hustle, then left my banking career.


When you choose foods with nutrition in mind, then you can enhance your own well-being.


Your choice of diet profoundly influences your long-term health prospects. There are only two common lifestyle habits that are more influential, and they are smoking and other tobacco use; and excessive drinking of alcohol.

Chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, dental disease, some kinds of cancer, adult bone loss … all have a connection to poor diet. Granted these diseases cannot be prevented by a good diet alone and are to some extent determined by a person’s genetic constitution, activities and lifestyle.


But within the range set by your genetic inheritance the likelihood of developing these diseases is strongly influenced by your food choices.


There is a wide variety of cooking styles we can use to create a desired effect within the body. But, it’s imperative to know when it’s best to use them. 


‘You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces. Just good food from fresh ingredients.”

- Julia Child, Chef


With this program that is using food as medicine, it’s imperative to choose the right cooking style. Here are some cooking styles and the reactions they can create: 

  • Raw foods are cooling, refreshing and hydrating and an excellent choice if you are feeling hot, inflamed, or dry.
  • Steamed foods add moist heat to food, so they retain their integrity and are slightly warming and hydrating.
  • Sautéed foods are warming and energizing and are cooked in a small amount of oil over high heat and moved around quickly in the pan. These foods are slightly tender on the outside but crisp on the inside. Highly energizing.
  • Stewed foods because they are so nourishing. They are cooked for long periods of time, breaking down the cellulose fibers, carbohydrates and proteins, tenderizing that food and making it very easy to digest. I love stewed foods because I immediately think of using my slow-cooker pot here.
  • Baked or roasted foods are very warming. They cook completely surrounded by dry heat and delicious.


There are many nuances to this food as medicine program, including how the various flavors affect each of the organ systems and the human body as a whole.

Using Food As Both Preventative And Healing Medicine

Learning to cook healing foods is a gift you give to yourself and others.


Healing my own debilitating side effects from my high blood pressure medications, and with over five years of professional experience working with clients to help them heal as well, I am a firm believer that we can use food as both preventative, and healing medicine.


Food feeds all of our organs and bodily system. Its broken down into smaller components that builds your blood and is absorbed on a cellular level.
