My Review of the "Food Matters" Documentary: Exploring the Power of Nutrition

A few years ago, I had the chance to watch the remarkable documentary "Food Matters." It's highly likely that you've come across it, seen the trailer, or even watched it yourself. Trust me when I say it made quite an impression on me. Despite viewing it on a small computer screen, I was completely captivated by its content. That's a testament to its profound impact. I'm eagerly looking forward to revisiting it in the future!

You can watch the documentary for free on YouTube, here:

When I first caught a glimpse of the trailer, I knew it had something special to offer. Without hesitation, I purchased the documentary, and I am so grateful I did. I feel compelled to encourage everyone I know, especially those who may not be well-versed in the realm of "good nutrition," to give it a watch. It sheds light on the importance of raw, fresh foods, essential nutrients, clean air, positive vibes, and more. I have many loved ones who are not aware of these concepts, and it's crucial for them to be informed. Ultimately, how they choose to utilize this knowledge will be up to them.

During my viewing, I took notes to provide you with a glimpse of what you can learn from this remarkable documentary. It delves into the world of "Orthomolecular Medicine," which focuses on high-dosage nutrition therapy. The film emphasizes the significance of incorporating raw food, fresh juices, vital vitamins, superfoods, purified water, exercise for clean oxygen, and exposure to sunlight to promote optimal health, well-being, and protection against diseases and chronic illnesses. Additionally, it highlights the benefits of body cleansing through detoxification, colonics, and enemas, which help eliminate toxins accumulated from our dietary choices and food preservation methods.

One of the standout moments for me was when David Wolfe explained that weight loss should not be pursued solely through perspiration during exercise. Instead, he advocates for shedding pounds through our bowels, as it is a safer and more natural process. Methods like colonics and juicing enable us to eliminate waste and toxins effectively. I wholeheartedly agree with this approach, especially as I've realized that intense exercise can be challenging for me as I grow older. It's possible to exercise without causing harm to ourselves while still achieving the desired results. This further validates the notion that what we consume truly matters!

The documentary also delves into the pharmaceutical and medical industry, shedding light on how our society has veered away from the fundamentals of good health. It emphasizes the significance of taking control of our own well-being by adopting good nutrition habits, such as consuming raw, fresh foods and juices, increasing vitamin intake, incorporating superfoods, drinking purified water, and engaging in regular exercise. By doing so, we can reduce our dependence on health insurance, as embracing raw, fresh food, water, and exercise is not only affordable but also simple, safe, and highly effective. One of my favorite lines from the film perfectly captures this sentiment: "Teach them how to be healthy. Educate them instead of medicating them."

Although I can't recall the name of the gentleman who discussed high-dosage vitamins for disease control, his words resonated deeply with me. In fact, his insights were the most memorable throughout the documentary. He shared fascinating information, such as the potential of high doses of Vitamin C therapy in combating cancer cells (up to 11,500 mg with no side effects) and the use of Niacin therapy for depression (3,000 mg or more of Niacin/Vitamin B3 per day). I find these natural approaches incredibly compelling, as I firmly believe in prioritizing natural remedies over pharmaceutical interventions as a last resort.

Now, I'm eager to delve deeper into the world of orthomolecular medicine and its potential applications for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Osteoarthritis, and possibly Scleroderma. My family and I have firsthand experience with these conditions. My son's OCD is severe, and my husband and I both struggle with Osteoarthritis and significant back damage. Pain management plays a substantial role in our lives. However, I have discovered alternative methods, such as massage, chiropractic care, and now, incorporating raw food, to alleviate my pain. Raw food, in particular, has had a positive impact on my well-being. Apologies for digressing a bit there.
