Food As Medicine


Let Food Be Thy Medicine,

And Let Thy Medicine Be Food-  Hippocrates

 

Every physician in practice today swears the "Hippocratic Oath" written by the founder of modern medicine.   I can think of no better way to honor Hippocrates than to practice good medicine and provide patients a path to whole health.

In this concept of whole health, we have planted an experiment in "food as medicine" by farming the land behind our clinic.  

With an organic farm in our back lot, we are expanding the model of health care to recognize food as medicine, sustainability as medicine, community as medicine and exercise as medicine (farm work is hard work!)  

What a wonderful feeling to have patients explore the garden after an appointment and take tomatoes fresh off the vine!  We invite all of you to stop by and take a look at our garden.  Hopefully our farm will be an inspiration to bring gardens to your yard and fresh food to your table.  It is easier than you think!
