The human body heals itself and nutrition provides the resources to accomplish the task.
— Roger Williams, PhD
The healing power of food has been well documented throughout history. Cultures throughout the world have used foods — fruits, vegetables, herbs, and animal products — to ward off disease and prevent ailments, aches, and pains. Now we live in a time when advances in technology allow us to take a closer look at food and discover why and how it heals. As a consumer, you have the ability to take this valuable knowledge and use it to guide your eating while reaping the benefits of improved health and wellness.
