“Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food” – Hippocrates. That is the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed in the controversial new documentary film Food Matters from Producer-Directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch.
With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what’s wrong with our malnourished bodies, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. Food Matters sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide ’sickness industry’ and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for overcoming illness naturally.

“With access to better information people invariably
make better choices for their health…”
In what promises to be the most contentious idea put forward, the filmmakers have interviewed several leading experts in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses as fatal as terminally diagnosed cancer.
The focus of the film is in helping us rethink the belief systems fed to us by our modern medical and health care establishments. The interviewees point out that not every problem requires costly, major medical attention and reveal many alternative therapies that can be more effective, more economical, less harmful and less invasive than conventional medical treatments.
The ‘Food Matters’ duo have independently funded the film from start to finish in order to remain as unbiased as possible, delivering a clear and concise message to the world. Food Matters.

    Dr. Burzinsky .. struggled with this as well with his non side effect developed meds.. what is needed is a board with $$$ more than what is invested already in the multibillion..probably zillion dollars by now in current cancer therapies.

    • Carmen Santana

      over 20 years he fought.. hope some vip and doctors and people with $$$ form an association or board to come before the fda and pharmaceutical companies and end this epidemic .. with the non nutrional or low nutritional foods and methods of treatments causing diseases to go viral.

    I chose to watch “Food Matters” on Netflix one night instead of watching a zombie movie, and I’m glad I’ve made that choice. This film made a great difference in my life. I already had the knowledge of such things, however, this film influenced me even more. I do believe that medicines are greatly needed in this world, however, I also believe that with great diets, less medication is needed which also means less side effects, and so on. While the medical field is based mostly on profits, it is also greatly needed. However, as this film points out… If people would visit nutritionists instead of medical doctors, or simply research and study the proper nutritional diet, we’d get a more natural prescription on how to cure ourselves. I am guilty of taking medicine (pill after pill) for headaches, colds, digestion, and so on. I’m still trying to get out of that habit, but I’m working on it. I’ve decided to grow me a garden, which I just started on. I’m taking 500mg of Vitamin C everyday (which gives me great energy), I’ve toned down on drinking sodas, and I’m trying to change my eating habits. I still got more changes to make, but I love the fact that I’m trying – that’s different from what I was doing before watching this film. Therefore, my conclusion is: A film that makes you want to ‘change for the better’ is a great film. You can’t talk negative against such a fine message.
