FOOD IS THE OLDEST MEDICINE
Dietary factors play a key role in the development of various human diseases, including cardiovascular disease. Epidemiological studies have shown that diets rich in fruits, herbs and spices are associated with a low risk of cardiovascular disease.
"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." - Hippocrates (500 B.C.E.) - Father of Modern Medicine
“The doctor of the future ... will instruct his patient in the care of the body ... through the proper use of foods." - Edison (early 19th century)
The key building blocks of physical health are less than 50 essential nutrients -- 13 vitamins, 22 or 23 minerals, 8, 10, or 11 essential amino acids, and 2 essential fatty acids. These are substances the human body cannot make, cannot live or be healthy without, and must obtain from foods or from food supplements.
The entire human body is made from food, water and air. It follows from this fact that the quality of our health is determined largely by what we eat, drink and breathe.
TODA’s Products and Historical use of the Ingredients
The use of medicinal plants to help maintain good health is older than recorded history. Many of the herbs we use today (such as garlic and bilberry) were recommended by physicians, and used by common people thousands of years ago for many of the same health problems that we use them for today. The use of medicinal herbs is also mentioned in most spiritual works throughout the world; the Bible is one example. According to the Old Testament, one of the chief complaints of the children of Israel on their long journey was that they had no garlic with them.
When the children of Israel were lost, hungry, and wandering in the wilderness of Sinai, they had garlic and other herbs on their mind. "We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic," they cried unto Moses in Numbers 11:5,6.
One of the first recorded heart formulas was made by the first century Greek pharmacist, Dioscorides, who prescribed garlic preparations to clean the arteries long before the scientific understanding of circulation was established.
Today, a growing body of scientific evidence is validating the rich history of botanical medicine by demonstrating many benefits to human health offered by the plants.
