I am a believer that food is medicine. Everything we put into our body can be used to either help us or hinder us. Over the last few years as a family we have made a conscious choice to change our diet so that we are fueling our body with the best food possible to give ourselves a fighting chance. We are not getting younger. . 

Nutritional Healing with Chinese Medicine is a great resource to go along with our way of eating as well as health. Chinese Medicine truly believes that food is medicine. When I think about the different uses food has in our body I am reminded of the Chinese Proverb - "All diseases enter through the mouth" - Food Matters!
