Hippocrates had some good advice
“Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food”
Hippocrates was one of the most important figures in establishing medicine as a profession. He lived around 300-400 years BC. He founded the Hippocratic School of Medicine and is thought of as the Father of Western Medicine. It is also thought that he or a student of his wrote the Hippocratic Oath in which our modern physicians swear to uphold certain ethical standards.
Because I was curious about the oath and you may be also, I’m including it below:
I’ve decided that Hippocrates was a very wise man and I plan on taking his advice about food being my medicine. I’m eating whole food and food that has not been processed to help my body heal itself. This is also helping with my chronic pain by reducing the inflammation in my body and helping me lose a little weight. I have lost 24 pounds since before Christmas last year and I’m hoping to continue to lose as I eat this way.
Thanks for looking at my site and coming to this page. I would love for you to leave any questions or comments below. In addition, I’m open to new topics to research and comment on as they pertain to my own health and experience living with diabetes. Please share your interests and questions in your comments. I also love to hear others stories about how they handle their own diabetes issues.
