"A predominantly plant-based diet is extremely powerful medicine, sometimes better than the medicine we take," said Dr. Bonnie Coyle, St. Luke's director of community health. Coyle praised the benefits of organic food.
Beyond the fact that St. Luke can monetize selling its most expensive organic food - as a luxury in the infamous "hospital food" and organic food craze - the move is a promising sign in a healthcare industry that has a bad habit of prescribing huge amounts of drugs and neglecting the power of food to heal the body. Most doctors have forgotten the founding postulate of Hippocrates, who is credited with the phrase "May your food be your medicine." Perhaps there is no more evolutionary and harmonious sign than a society that does not need anything other than what it eats (and what it harvests) to stay healthy, beyond futuristic utopias of genetic or nanotechnology medicine.
A recent study showed that food grown organically is more nutritious. Perhaps due to methods such as monoculture, the use of pesticides and other toxic ingredients, we have stopped receiving the medicinal effects of food. Ultimately, food-medicine is the result of a healthy earth, rich in minerals and trace elements, which in turn translates into a healthy body. This has been lost; That is why it is so important to resume organic farming practices.
