Episode Description

Dr. Andrew Saul, frequent guest on The Power of Natural Healing, ardent proponent of natural health, active practitioner of excellent health practices, focuses on dietary fiber in today's episode. Though it may sound boring, Dr. Saul traces the fascinating history of how the importance of fiber was discovered, exploited and used for military purposes before being accepted by the medical world. One British naval physician found, by sharp observation that sailors who ate bran with their food remained far healthier (thus more able to do their duty and fight for king and country) than if they did not. He convinced the Royal Navy to require the consumption of fiber by their crews, mirroring the adoption of citrus to avoid scurvy, a common affliction of long-distance sailors in past centuries. Lack of fiber is common in modern processed food consumers, and it affects health powerfully. Listen in and find out why!
