Summary

A TIME article validates whole food health advantages for which nutrition solution experts have been advocating for decades.

Whole food nutrition comes through again via a great article from TIME, validating whole food health advantages for which nutrition solution experts have been advocating for decades.

The article first discusses the health problems that arise from chronic conditions like type 2 diabetes, a condition exacerbated by reliance on processed food, especially for individuals who cannot afford to change their lifestyle.

Thankfully programs like Geisinger Health System’s Fresh Food Farmacy, promote both availability and affordability of healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and low-sodium options. The Fresh Food Farmacy also helps individuals learn to incorporate healthy foods into a regular eating habit, offers blood sugar monitoring, and provides nutrition advice.

This program is a great example of an increasing trend in modern medicine where professionals are actually treating food as medicine, as Hippocrates encouraged so many centuries ago.

Healthcare professionals are also increasingly considering factors like sleep, exercise, and stress levels, in addition to diet when assessing a patient’s underlying health issues – looking beyond symptoms and going deeper to address underlying, systemic health problems with nutritional and other lifestyle interventions.
