Food Matters (2008)

You Are What You Eat


About the film (taken from here):

“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.

  1. I saw the movie, and i think in this case its a propaganda video of the Gerson institute who takes a huge part of the movie. Its not a movie which provocates thinking, more a huge advertisement for The Gerson Therapy promising the cure of cancer.

  2. I still have not seen this movie. Sounds interesting. Yes, food really matters both for your body and brain.

    • Hello! Yes, have a look at the movie. There as lot of truth told there. But also, as commented by other users, do not forget that there is a producer behind which belongs to some institute and that not everything may be 100% objective.

      Anyhow, have fun watching the film

  3. im normally wandering throughout the net almost all of the time therefore I have the inclination to peruse significantly, which is not usually a good matter as the majority of the pages I visit are constructed of pointless trash copied from many other web pages a trillion times, but I have to give you credit this webpage is definitely enjoyable and even contains a bit of original information, therefore thanks for stopping the fad of just simply copying other individual’s websites :)

    • hi, thanks for your comment.

      I indeed tried to write original textes, although they never became highly sofisticated, heheh. Only here and then I copied some textes when I didn’t have time. But unfortunally – and as you can see in the blog – it has been almost two years now, since I have posted something. I started other projects in ‘real live’, which are comsuming all my time. They also have a strong educational caracter, so I think it’s ok, heheh.

      Well, I hope you find some posts on this blog, which you won’t find anywhere else ;-)

  4. Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.

  5. We just watched the movie and although we agree with much of it. Can the creators really claim to be unbiased when they are the only ones creating it? Where are the skeptics with counter arguments? This is a highly biased film. Again, not that we disagree with the information, but the only alternative presented is to go to your doctor whom they disregard as pawns of the pharmaceutical industry.
