Thomas Edison Quote About Nutrition
While “You are what you eat” is one of the best known quotes about healthy eating, I personally love this one from Thomas Edison a lot more.
“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.” ~ Thomas Edison
I would love to see more doctors discussing food with their patients – not necessarily more than medications that could be helpful but at leas as much as. Whether it’s to prevent problems, help problems, or even alleviate them… the truth is the foods we eat can be incredibly helpful.
Problem is, not all doctors dive into nutrition (to be fair, lately, when would they find time do do any extra research?!) as a preventive measure let alone a cure. It’s often up to us to do our due diligence and research (from highly reputable sources, of course)…. then bring them up to our doctor and see what he/she says.
I asked one of my doctors, years ago, about an herb I’d read about being helpful for asthma. She actually wrote the name of the herb down and said she was going to look it up and research it. She apparently believed strongly in herbs and natural healing and simply hadn’t read enough about this particular one yet. She said she’d let me know what she’d found on my next visit and she did.
If you don’t have a doctor as cool as this particular doctor… find one!
