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

Absolutely Unbelievable!!!
16 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a mother of four kids, and our family has a slew of health problems. After my husband got out of the hospital for gallstones, we started reading up on natural ways to get rid of gallstones, and stumbled upon this movie. We were enchanted. The information in this movie is such an eye opener. I also recommend watching "The Beautiful Truth"...what an epiphany! I want to just give this movie to everyone I know so we can all start being healthy. Our family is no different from everyone else-food wise. We have always tried to eat well, buy our kids healthy things to eat, etc. Little did we know that buying organic food and eating uncooked food was the key! We have been eating nothing but organic food for a week and a half and we feel great! My husband's gallstone pain is GONE...completely gone! I can now eat salad without any pain (I have diverticulitis). Two of my kids have ADHD and ADD, and they are CALMER already! I can't believe we've been poisoning ourselves all this time. The food industry is just a big money making lie!!!! Please watch this and other documentary's on food, it's a life change!
