“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
Don’t you think this quote is refreshingly perceptive and pithy? I think that the underlying message Edison relays is a correlation between diet and disease. Nutrient-dense foods have the potential to combat, or even cure, certain ailments.
Speaking of the impact of a nutritious diet, I was grateful for a recent opportunity I had to serve at Community Servings, a not-for-profit that designs and disseminates hundreds of thousands of nutrient-dense meals to patients combatting disease.
As I entered the facility, one of the first things that stood out to me was how its entrance was adorned with the phrase FOOD HEALS. Beneath those words I saw an image of a kitchen pot with a heart at its center. What a compelling message of the power of nutrient-dense food to enhance one’s health and spirits!
Have you ever heard of or volunteered at Community Servings? What are some of your favorite mission-driven organizations committed to ensuring nutrient-dense foods are accessible to all?
