“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
OUR KITCHEN MEDICINE section is designed to increase our awareness of the healing power of food, including herbs.
As Hippocrates stated so eloquently: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Some examples—
- When your head is congested and full of mucous, eat some horseradish root. The horseradish root will cause the sinus cavities to drain. Wasabi will have the same effect.
- Honey is a natural antibiotic.
- When experiencing fear/anxiety eat root vegetables. Foods that grow in the earth are full of the earth element. The earth element is responsible for grounding. When grounded fear retreats.
