Grow Your Own Drugs and
The Food Hospital –
Food Healing on TV
Our readers always are looking for alternatives to increase their wellness. While Food Healing has been practiced for thousands of years with good results, it is only recently that healing with food has come to American television. The Cooking Channel has picked up and broadcasted two British Food Healing programs, Grow Your Own Drugs and The Food Hospital. I have had the pleasure of watching both programs for weeks now and feel totally impressed by the high quality of information in both programs.
Food Healing on Grow Your Own Drugs
In Grow Your Own Drugs ethnobotanist James Wong shows you how to grow and make your own remedies for simple ailments. He shares his remedies and those who use them share anecdotal evidence of their effectiveness. Here is a YouTube, courtesy of the BBC and James Wong:
Food Healing on The Food Hospital
In the second program, The Food Hospital, Dr. Giovanni Miletto shares food treatment programs with patients who have a variety of issues. The patients go through rigorous treatment and testing to see if changing their foods actually cure or improve their health problems.
I watched Episode 8 and was particularly impressed with the nutritional program Dr. Miletto shared with a patient who had IBS. The Low FODMAP diet seemed to have a very positive health and lifestyle effect for this lady. In my opinion, The Food Hospital opens patients up to more choices in their health care.
I highly recommend watching both these Cooking Channel offerings as an opening to investigate Food Healing. QueenBee
