What food is making you healthy and which is keeping you diseased?
January 28, 2014
Hosted by Dr. Maggie Luther
Food is what keeps us going, literally. If you didn’t eat food, you would starve and die. We all know that intellectually. Yet few of us realize the true power of food, as it also has the capacity to help us thrive! Instead of just getting by in our health journey, we could actually be thriving and preventing chronic disease with our diet. Remember, diet is what you eat, not something you go on. Based on the choices we make with our diet, we are either adding to or taking from our health bank account. The industrial revolution brought with it the unfortunate disaster of packaged foods and agricultural changes, which favored growing a lot of only a small number of crops. This has left our food system damaged. Do you know where your food comes from and what it is made of? Learn about where food comes from, what mainstream agriculture practices are doing to our food supply and how you can reclaim your health through your diet!

Health is a journey, not a destination. Reclaim Your Health is about living a healthy life through empowered education. Rather than leaving your health to chance, take control of it by learning how to optimize your health one day at a time. Everyday you make decisions about your diet and lifestyle routine; such as the food you eat, the relationships you have, the places where you invest your time, energy and money. Ultimately these add to or take from your health. You must learn to live a proactive lifestyle to prevent disease! Listen to your body. True health is about becoming aware of what it takes to support yourself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. By supporting all aspects of your being, you can live a truly magnificent lifestyle. You will feel more connected to your life’s purpose. You become more accountable to yourself and your community. By understanding what it takes to be healthy, you find strengths within yourself to live the life you were born to live.

Dr. Maggie has had a love affair with health and natural medicine from a young age. She pursued a self-directed undergraduate degree in holistic health and sustainable development, connecting organic agricultural practices, local food economies, and holistic and herbal medicine. Dr. Maggie had the opportunity to live in Scotland, at the Findhorn Foundation, a spiritual and eco-minded intentional community, experiencing firsthand what it is like to live in a community that cares for the earth in a very sustainable and natural way. Studying herbal medicine she learned how to grow natural medicine, and used herbs daily to show people how to enhance the healing abilities of food. Realizing that health is the greatest gift we can give ourselves, Dr. Maggie found her calling as a naturopathic doctor. Passionate about empowering people to live a healthier and more fulfilled life, she is helping them to see how intricately connected we all are with the world we live in. The health of the human species is a reflection of the health of the earth. We must become better caretakers of our own selves in order to make this earth a truly viable and magical home. Dr. Maggie reminds people that health is a journey not a destination. It is about making daily, health promoting habits that create health and wellness. Dr. Maggie supports the whole person in order to heal, and loves to help people find their true purpose, in the hopes that they will live a more connected and sustainable life.
