Saying the Same Thing

Naturopathic principles can be found in places where you’ve probably been overlooking them all along.

Here’s an example of the same belief that the body’s digestion is the secret source of health:

“Man is not nourished by what he swallows, but by what he assimilates.” —Hippocrates

“If the digestion is strong enough, a poison can become food.” — Ayurvedic Principle

“They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” — Jesus, as quoted in the KJV

When we look closely, we have to conclude that truth is truth, and many of the voices that most of us listen to – are saying the same things.  Health is built on nutrition, and feeding the body with things that can be used to build and rebuild its’ cells is the “secret-sauce.”  Trying to force the human body to use indigestible oils (with flatulent side-effects), or tricking it with sweeteners that are designed in a chemistry lab and not found in nature, solely for the purpose of weight management – are likely to end in poor digestion and poor health.

DrDIY is a food-safety professional with an extensive sanitation background within the food & beverage manufacturing industry. He consults on food-safety - from hygienic-design to integrated pest-management through microbiology support, quality improvement audits, total-process management philosophy, CIP optimization, and lean-six-sigma project participation.

Overcoming an extended disability through a complete overhaul of diet and nutrition, DrDIY embraced traditional naturopathy and combined the wisdom of nature with the principles of modern sanitation to help build more sustainable systems within the food industry. He continues to study and practice holistic nutrition, food-safety, detoxification, and self-improvement and this site represents personal experience and opinion - and does not reflect the position of any employer past or present.

His posts have always been a 'stream of consciousness' montage with occasional ventures into Christology and pop culture, just to keep things interesting.
