Food as Medicine: Part 5
Dr. Terry Wahls lectures extensively about the use of intensive nutrition to restore health. In this lecture series Abundant Health, she partners with Fred Meyer from Backyard Abundance to show people how to afford eating so many vegetables and fruits. She reviews the connections between the health of our cells, the food we eat (or do not eat) and the health (or lack thereof) of our brains and our bodies so that people can understand why and how to eat for health.
Dr. Wahls then talks about what categories of foods to grow, and why. Growing greens, sulfur rich vegetables and colored vegetables can be done in the yard, in containers or a windowsill. Fred Meyer a Master Gardener, teaches how easy it is to begin growing your own food. Fred even provides examples of things you can grow even when you don’t have access to sunlight.
