Throughout history, civilisations have been using food as a type of medicine. If you were ever told that eating carrots would help you see in the dark - then you already know more about the “Doctrine of Foods" than you thought!

The doctrine of foods is a holistic approach to health and wellenss. Many health professionals have researched into the doctrine of foods and have discovered an undeniable link between specific natural foods and their positives they have on our body's and organs. 

Below are a handful of great examples, you may notice the similiarity's many of these foods have in appearance to their desired area of health - this is the doctrine of foods!
