From Hippocrates

"He who does not know food, how can he understand the diseases of man?"

The link between our diet and our health was recognized so many years ago but it seems that most physicians ignored or were ignorant of the fact. Thankfully many are now recognizing this important link. Thank you Hippocrates, father of medicine, 460-357 B.C.

A quotation full of truth. And even today, many physicians do not have a clue about nutrition except the very basics. Instead of inquiring on how the diet of the patient has been, medications are handed out like candy. Perhaps if we went to a nutritionist first, then things may clear up on their own.
