    I loved following the journey’s of the people featured in this film using food as medicine. I am featured for just a minute cooking with my friend Amanda. I have watched my friend struggle with the ups and downs of healing through food. I have so much respect for her having the courage to share her personal story with the World. It is hard to change our entire lifestyles! This film has it all. You get to see the personal side of healing and hear from experts on why what we eat is important for our health. One thing I have learned while healing from Multiple Sclerosis and Lyme disease using food is community and support are important. This film has all of that! Enjoy!

    From successful recovery stories to those just learning how to integrate healthy eating into their lives, we see the many challenges facing Americans today. Access to healthy foods is expensive while unhealthy foods are subsidized. Busy lives and convenience foods are creating an epidemic of obesity and illness, which implies increasing health care costs and a workforce disabled by poor health. This film is a call to action. The takeaway: real food is the one universally beneficial treatment for all disease and our greatest hope for our futures.

    If this were food as medicine you’d think that they would use actual nutritious foods that are full of flavonoids an anti-oxidants. Of course, those are mostly things that you see going on rather than anyone giving any specifics on.

    I guess if they consider cherry milkshakes, wild game burgers, chicken livers, lamb bone broth, home made yogurt, etc. to be health foods and medicine then more power to them.

    The iron about that list above is that they show those things while people are talking about health and supposedly feeling better but earlier in the film one of the experts (Dr Terry Wahls I think), correctly so in this case, speaks to how most Americans are getting maybe 15 to 20 grams of fiber per day when we should getting close to 100 grams if you eat a better diet. She also speaks to how a high fiber diet helps to feed the gut biome. This is in the same film that shows people preparing and eating lots of low to no anti-oxidant foods that can contribute to inflammation, have zero fiber, and lack many other important nutritional benefits.

    The real reason that this paleo style of eating works is that they are cutting out processed foods. This would be like taking someone who has a horrible diet and drinks lots of soda and then eliminating just the soda from their diet. Of course they would feel better but that doesn’t mean that the rest of their diet is healthy. It just means that you eliminated a food / drink item that was a large contributor to how they feel while possibly reversing some of their health issues. Now if they just cut out the meat, bacon, bone broth, milk shakes, yogurt, etc. and stuck with whole plant foods you could then also eliminate some of the people’s weight problems too.

    Side note to Paleo lovers – there is no such thing as a Paleo diet as people ate differently depending where on the planet that they were and the time of year. Back then, you were an opportunity eater. Opportunity eater doesn’t always mean healthy. In a tropical zone that was likely more fruits, greens, nuts, seeds, melons, potatoes, etc. Further north or higher altitudes you were probably much higher on the tubers and more meat. Polar regions, almost exclusively meat.

    How come Paleo diets seem to also exclude insects, honey, and all the other things that people would have been eating back then? FYI – they also had some legumes and grains (clearly not farmed grains but wild grains).

    Strangely enough they don’t really tell you right off the bat what the film is about. The Paleo part is hidden. It was about an hour in that I finally had to hit the ol’ google to see what the slant / bais of the film is and who Dr Terry Wahls are.

    Ironically, some of the “health” professionals are a solid 25 to 40 pounds overweight.
