NOTES FROM THE FILMMAKERS
Let thy Food be thy Medicine, and thy Medicine be thy Food Hippocrates.
That is the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed in the controversial new documentary film Food Matters from Producer-Directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch.
With nutritionally depleted foods, chemical additives, and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what’s wrong with our malnourished bodies, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting sicker.
Food Matters sets about uncovering the trillion dollars worldwide sickness industry and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for curing disease naturally.
In what promises to be the most contentious idea put forward, the filmmakers have interviewed several world leaders in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements, and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses as fatal as terminally diagnosed cancer.
The focus of the film is on helping us rethink the belief systems fed to us by our modern medical and health care establishments. The interviewees point out that not every problem requires costly, major medical attention and reveal many alternative therapies that can be more effective, more economical, less harmful, and less invasive than conventional medical treatments.
