Some of the largest selling pharmaceuticals today are antidepressants along with sleeping pills. This reflects the rise in anxiety and depression in our modern society. We're even medicating our children in an effort to assist them to function in school and social settings.
Whilst these medications are effective in reducing symptoms its important to look for and to address the root cause as there is evidence that long term use may create additional health concerns.
Besides the need for every increasing dosing you might expect digestive disorders and neurological damage further down the track if the root cause is not addressed.
It seems to me that we’re being told what to eat and more importantly what NOT to eat at every opportunity. I suspect that most of the current diet advice is more about selling books or supplements than sensible, factual or traditional food wisdom.
What I would like to do is
1. Allay any fears surrounding this food group
2. Back it with traditional wisdom and practices
3. Give you tools to ensure that your food does heal and not harm you
