Storyline

"Let Thy Food Be Thy Medicine, And Thy Medicine Be Thy Food." - Hippocrates That is the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed in this brave new documentary film brought to you by Producer-Directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch. 'Food Matters' is a hard hitting, fast paced look at our current state of health. Despite the billions of dollars of funding and research into new so-called cures we continue to suffer from a raft of chronic ills and every day maladies. Patching up an over-toxic and over-indulgent population with a host of toxic therapies and nutrient sparse foods is definitely not helping the situation. In a personal quest of discovery James & Laurentine together with a film crew and the editorial and production expertise of Enzo Tedeschi have set out on an independent mission to uncover the wholesome truth. The filmmakers have interviewed several world leaders in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies ... Written by Anonymous

Funny how the doctor's review was so defensive...the truth hurts I guess
22 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is outstanding. It should be mandatory to be shown to every one who cares about "health care" in the US. The cartel and money- driven actors in this massive industry are encouraged to let people get sick, and then treat them with expensive pharmaceuticals and medical procedures. "Specialists" MD's have become singularly minded in their patient interactions, such that anything that is complex, multi-system, and doesn't drive to an expensive procedure is brushed off an "unremarkable". Sick people and their families are often distraught not so much about their illnesses, but about the woeful "bedside manner" of so many doctors, who show little ability to think outside the box, let alone reinforce nutritional and wellness best practices at every turn. If the AMA and other medical industry organizations truly were effective and cared to truly "fix" the health outcomes of our 310 million citizens while dramatically lowering the costs associated to it, the look and feel of our mini-marts, supermarkets, fast food restaurants....and physical appearance of millions of Americans...would be much different.
