We’ve all had someone tell us to eat our vegetables at least once. Of course, they were right. Vegetables contain vitamins and nutrients essential to our development and well-being. Is that all, though?
At Guardion Health Sciences, we have seen that our culture sells healthy foods short. Great vegetables, meats, and herbs are treated like nice additions when they can function as medicinal treatments. In short, we believe nature can do more for us, especially our eyes. More importantly, we believe that we cannot afford to ignore the true benefits of food any longer; too many people need help.
Can Food Be Medicine?
Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, said, “Leave your drugs in the chemist’s pot if you can heal the patient with food.” He believed that many illnesses could be blamed on bad eating habits and inadequate nutrition. If people could eat well, they would experience optimum health. For thousands of years, tribal elders and healers turned to Nature for healing plants and herbs. Food was used as a prescription to bring about healing.
Yes, Food Can Be Medicine!
It always has been. In fact, Hippocrates coined the phrase “Medicine as food” to express his belief that we can address chronic issues with the food we eat.
We don’t blame anyone for being skeptical; the modern human’s experiences don’t support food as medicine. However, we’ve moved a long way from the diets and habits of our ancestors. Humans have been gradually moving away from Nature and taking refuge in synthesized drugs, which seem effective but produce harmful side effects and often are no better than band-aids. However, medicine isn’t the only thing that has changed. Our diets are completely different. Many of us subsist on fatty, sugary, processed foods. This unhealthy diet has resulted in many diseases and widespread obesity. In a way, we have created a problem and are now creating problematic solutions to it…when the solutions have been growing out of the dirt around us the whole time.
At Guardion Health Sciences, we work hard on natural solutions that will produce lasting improvement. Our Lumega-Z medical food for ocular health is the first example of our passion! We believe that the rigor of the medical science must play a prominent role in medicinal food.
The Marriage of Medical Science and the Kitchen
While the medical sciences have produced a lot of drugs, they have also created a rigorous school of study that dovetails perfectly into medical foods. Supported by our extensive collective knowledge of our Science Advisory Board, we have united the vigor of modern science with the timeless study of food. We pinpoint valuable natural ingredients and their applications so they can be effectively prescribed. Our first application is to ocular health. Effectively Address Eye Health with Lumega-Z
The Baby Boomer generation has reached an age where they need more support for their age-related conditions, and Guardion Health Sciences is proud to offer Lumega-Z, an advanced ocular health medical food. This medical food doesn’t just address the issue of insufficient nutrients for eye health; its natural roots help the body rebuild the eyes’ protection.
Medical foods are not as heavily regulated as prescription drugs, and that is why we work so hard with our Science Advisory Board to ensure we are producing high-caliber products. We have deep roots in ocular health and are passionate about connecting with eye doctors to support their practices. Learn more about this emerging treatment and invest in Lumega-Z today!
