Let food be thy medicine

Beautifully articulated explanation of why we need the medicine in our foods, how modern hybrid food has lost it - and the drugs industry sells it back to us.  And the importance of eating truly natural foods which contain the medicinal element.

Thinking about the 'bitter principle', which is the medicinal element of plant foods,  those of us who have trodden this path in the face of various adversities have had to become very independent, able to  flourish in a range of trying situations and have developed a repertoire of strategies  (medicine ways) to call upon and heal ourselves when we are challenged yet again.  Its easy to envy those whose path seems to have been more facilitated, but the challenges make us strong and takes us back to our true nature like the wild plants.
