“Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.”

-Hippocrates-

What if your doctor told you that you didn’t need him anymore? Could your body heal itself and reverse poor health without medication? Today’s Daily Dose shared by Dr. Michael Greger, founder of Nutritionfacts.org is a small primer on heart disease and our ability to reverse damage done through establishing healthy habits.

Dr. Greger gives the example of us bumping our shin and watching it heal over a short period of time. He equates much of our internal health to be of the same properties. He explains how modern medicine will allow us to mask the pain of that bruised shin, or ailing heart, lungs, etc. by providing medication to ease the discomfort. Consequently, the bruised shin gets re-injured each day with no long-term healing.  Simply put, if we improve our poor eating, lifestyle and excercise choices, our bodies will begin to heal themselves.

Nutritionfacts.org is the only non-commercial, nonprofit, science-based website to provide free daily updates on the latest in evidence-based nutrition. The content is both in web format and in YouTube Video format. Dr. Greger speaks directly and with little jargon to overwhelm his viewers. His latest book, How Not to Die, became an instant New York Times Best Seller.   Dr. Greger receives no compensation for his work on NutritionFacts.org, therefore 100% of all proceeds he has ever received are donated to charity.
