Yes, it’s true! We’ve been speaking light into the darkness of Western Medicine for decades about the ineptness of feeding people drugs or chemicals to try to create vitality and finally a doctor awake enough and bold enough to go against the grain of the status quo!
Here is a repost of the article about Dr. Garth Davis of Houston, Texas….
“The first physician ever, Hippocrates, said let food be thy medicine and medicine by thy food, and that’s what I really want to teach my patients, and not just teach patients, I want doctors to start getting that message too.,” Dr. Garth Davis said.
While a small handful of hospitals like his have begun making rational changes to their menus involving organic food, one promising new project could up the ante, and in the process change the way hospitals do prescriptions forever.
“We have created a project where my organic produce co-op and his clinic are going to start recommending and prescribing fruits and vegetables instead of or in place of prescription drugs,” said Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram, founder of the Rawfully Organic Co-op in Houston, Texas, which is considered to be the largest in the United States, about her new project with Dr. Garth Davis.
Dr. Davis is a bariatric surgeon who also specializes in programs for weight loss, diabetes, high blood pressure, and nutrition in general in his clinic at the Memorial Hermann hospital in Houston, where Bucaram’s co-op is located.
He’s also a vegan and competitive runner who once dealt with health problems of his own and was told he’d have to be on medication for the rest of his life.
He went on a vegetarian yoga retreat and experienced firsthand how good clean eating and the right kind of exercise can feel, before returning to his practice and re-evaluating things.
The new plan involves the writing of actual prescriptions for fruits and veggies from her organic co-op for patients who have certain health conditions. “Just that visual of people going with prescription to pick up fruits and vegetables is going to be a real powerful one, it’s going to start changing people’s ideas,” Dr. Davis stated.
Dr. Davis plans to encourage other doctors to write prescriptions like his, and Bucaram said that the program could expand to the whole hospital if all goes well.
