From Lenore Eklund’s personal healing, inspiration grew to create a positive film about people addressing disease with food. There are a lot of negative messages about the state of our nation’s health and diet, and they were inspired by the community of people they found who are fighting back against this downward trend. Food As Medicine wants to reach people who are dealing with disease and don’t know where to start in terms of addressing it through lifestyle changes and inspire them with real stories.
The Center for Disease Control reports that nearly half the population in the United States of America lives with at least one chronic disease. These diseases are the leading cause of death and disability and are the most costly and most preventable of all health conditions in the country.
It is imperative that we start changing our food culture now. Food As Medicine follows the growing movement of using food to heal chronic disease. From individuals empowering themselves to change what is on their plates to hospital groups administering vegetable Rx programs, we can already see the change happening around us.
