    I stopped eating processed foods, salt, sugar and oils for 2 months now. My taste palate has changed where fruits and vegetables now taste delicious. I sleep better and have better focus.

    Although this is great information I think it’s very sad that health as in food as medicine is not accesible to everyone, speaking for myself I do not make enough money to buy organic fruits, vegetables and meats and if I could, I would. As it is fruits and vegetables is already the expensive option.
    These professionals the say that people complain that organic is expensive but medicine is more expensive, ok, yes, true BUT these are people that CAN buy organic but are not willing to do it because they deem it expensive and for others is not expensive it’s completely unaffordable and inaccessible. So isn’t it better to eat conventional fruits and vegetables over all the other proccesed foods? Wouldn’t it be more inclusive to add this as an option for people that don’t have access to the best option?

    Hypocrates(The Greeks) if he existed, learned everything from the Ancient Egyptians, the people of Cush, the Nile Valley occupants AFRICANS, how dare you omit them from this conversation. They taught the World everything. They had THE FIRST ALPHABET, literacy and math. This is an example of cruel and dishonest BIAS. GO study the Doguns and and give Africans their due credit. Everything began with the Ancient Egyptians.

    It may be too late already to cure diseases through nutrition for a lot of us. How many of us would be able to enjoy a quality of life beyond 40/50 years without dependency on pharmaceutical

  22. MRC Hip Hop Rap Promo on July 28, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    1:18 Yes lets keep it hidden ….lol and yall supposed to be so educated…. Hippocrates would have been somewhat of a student of Imhotep (AFRICA) as he went to Egypt (Kemet) and consulted the library of Imhotep’s temple to study Kemetic medicine. Hipocratic Oath begins with the phrase: β€œI swear by Apollo the physician, and πŸ‘‰πŸΏAsclepius (Imhotep)πŸ‘ˆπŸΏ, and Hygieia and Panacea and all the gods and goddesses as my witnesses, that, according to my ability and judgement, I will keep this Oath and this contract…”

    Food is medicine that’s it

  24. Donna Varesi on July 28, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    I am very skeptical when the vege section in supermarket, "organic" well how organic, where is it grown, govt guidelines for "organic" what are they. Most of the time I don’t believe. I buy organic sure but I really don’t believe, my broccoli, gingerroot tastes the same no different. Cynical thinks this is all a big con on we regular humans.

  25. Garret Zenanko on July 28, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    Avoid gmo glyphosate laced food and wheat laced with alloxan. All chronic disease comes from those.

  29. Meg Braun on July 28, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    I don’t know why my nutrition classes haven’t shown this yet. But I’m glad I’m doing my own research. I’m currently studying so I can become an RD. I want to focus on helping other veterans with chronic pain by adjusting their diets

  30. Anna Saunders on July 28, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Over 30 years ago I was told by doctors that I would never walk again ..a painful type of athritis I suffered with. There was no cure. I turned into studying natural healing of a natural diet I healed myself without any medication n healthy life up to now. I never touch any medication from doctors for over 30 years. I refuse to !!

  31. The King Pashaa on July 28, 2021 at 9:47 pm

  32. Mingle Lee on July 28, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Do have something for that.

  33. Donna Varesi on July 28, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Don’t have too many forms of drinking fluids until I bought a juicer, but most of the time I just want it to be simple. Make gallon or two of green tea which I have done for a ocuple of decades because I love it easy to like. So then I mix it with gingerroot juiced, lemons juiced. And there is my other drink besides water and coffee. I juice yes, apple juice, apple carrot beet ginger juice all kinds. But just to open the fridge and pull out my other drink, this does the trick. Gingerroot and lemon best solution for me for my "stomach aches, ailments, gas, etc."

    it is thyme tea time. Pls AW how could someone suggest you a company which is not on your directory to be checked by Spirit of Compassion?

  40. Abhishek on July 28, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    Ok tell me how is the world going to feed billions of people with organic food? The cost of organic food it 2.5 to 3 times normal rate & 88% of people of the world are middle class. Tell me how can they afford it? 99% of the food in the world are synthetically grown. Eating those will 100% result in some or the other disease inevitably. Humans have already outgrown the rate at which nature can provide food at a natural rate. So cut the crap and work on to fix the global food market. If you can’t do it, then stop lecturing.

  41. Michael Wall on July 28, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    The lady chairing this discussion is doing a very good job. She seems to have more than a cursory understanding of each person’s work.

  42. Emma Avila on July 28, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    You Dr’s are trying to combine your killer meds and your still trying to confuse people malnutrition and processed foods is what is killing us

  43. Benedikt W on July 28, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    The moderator is awesome. Very good direction of conversation, awesome summaries, very well commented and summarizes well for people who might not be deep into the scientific lingo of some of the guests in the panel πŸ‘πŸ»

  44. Tamara Rogers on July 28, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Passionate discussion and they don’t have to 100% agree, if you are listening to this talk you are ahead of the game.

  45. Emma Avila on July 28, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    Food as medicine, this is a big check to me. As a student of nutrition I highly suggest this to all who read this comment. Having rainbow in your plate will give you the recovery of your body tissue in faster phase rather than eating junk. Also in modern day a simple app can also help you alot monitoring your progress and what to do next. I do prefer 360wellness as it has all my need, planning, diet of choice and many more.
