Hippocrates stated back in Ancient Grecian times to “Let food be thy Medicine”. Today, we have scientific research showing us the power and impact of the right nutrition. We know that eating a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables helps to prevent many chronic diseases. Once someone is diagnosed with a disease/s they often require prescribed diets, such as a diabetic diet, a renal diet or heart healthy diet. These may sound generic but they are very complicated and require science to pair the right nutrients for each illness. Just like medicines prevent or treat a disease, food can do the same. When battling a disease or multiple diseases your diet can play an important role in your health outcomes.
