Listen to an interview with K.P. Khalsa by Ann Holaday of Voice America on the topic of Food as Medicine.
Food can either have a positive or negative effect on health. We are much more likely to make a connection to a food that we have eaten recently when we feel a bad effect than to one we have eaten over a long period of time when we develop an ulcer, for example. The food we eat has a profound effect on energy, sleep, immunity, all bodily functions, and the development of disease.
Eating is something we do every day and what we do every day is much more important than what we do once in a while. If we want to achieve optimum health we have to eat food that the body can readily digest and convert into nutrition to nourish the tissues.
