Food Is Your Medicine, Not Pills

In my experience as a Naturopathic Doctor, not just a few but virtually all diseases can be healed with the correct diet and absolutely no medication. Your body is capable of handling and recovering from any ailment provided you give it the appropriate terrain to heal. Supplements may at times be beneficial, but your true medicine is food and always has been.

Dr. Nandita Shah, a Pondicherry-based homeopath, says simple dietary changes can help prevent, and more importantly reverse, ailments like osteoporosis, diabetes and even high blood pressure without popping pills.

Shah, who has been a homeopathic practitioner for 30 years, says the biggest hurdle most of us encounter is that we fail to understand our body. “If you put kerosene in a car that runs on petrol, the car will break down,” Shah says, adding that the human body functions better if it consumes foods that are a better fit.

She offers an instance. Our body is mostly alkaline, she explains. A pH (potential Hydrogen) level between 1 and 6.9 is considered acidic, while one between 7.1 and 14 is marked alkaline. The human body’s natural pH level stands at 7.45, making it alkaline. All fruits and vegetables, natural juices like coconut water are alkaline, which make them a better nutrition fit than say animal proteins, tea, coffee, sugar, alcohol, and packaged foods that have high acidic levels. An imbalance in pH levels, says Shah, can lead to a disruption in cellular activity, causing health problems that range from heartburn to heart disease.

    Big Pharma doesn’t make money through education and healing through diet, they make their money on pills, and they do not care how many die while their earning soar to all time highs.

    It’s all about money stupid, it has nothing to do with your health.

    What ballocks.

    First, The Human body has different fluids with differnt pH values. just examine your stomach acid with your Blood… different pH.

    The body also has powerful buffers in the blood to keep its pH value constant. Food would not change this.

    secondly, I would love to know how you are curing Chronic illnesses and diseases based and genetics with food. You could win a nobel prize for that.

    Thirdly, There are homeopathic pills, are you against that too?
