This is what I am trying. For example I don't take a bottle of aspirins so why eat or ovedose on a box of cookies. I'm trying to think of food as medicine

    I have long thought of food as medicine, but I have a different spin on it. I think of real food as having healing properties--it's nature's medicine, not something that was manufactured like a pill. When we eat nature's medicine (fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, etc) we are more likely to be healthy. The key is to avoid processed foods whenever possible and eat whole foods.

    Don't overdose on medicine. Don't overdose on food.
