You can eat delicious food, and it can be therapeutic…too!
I had a French restaurant in Belgium. That was before I trained in holistic health. The gastronomic life I tasted, lived and experienced went deep into my soul and has stayed with me ever since.
Food can be so delicious, ecstatic…and here I put in therapeutics as well. Why not enjoy delicious food and at the same time, stay healthy? Worth a great try!
Come join me in these gastronomic recipes imbibed with holistic health juices!
A very short story:
I am a reluctant hero (not really a hero – just borrowing from Joseph Campbell)…I felt compelled to start this project, (I’d been ooh-ing and ahh-ing for many years) and the new year 2018 felt like it was really the best time…so I bit the bullet on January 3rd, and here we are.
The real story is this: My Mum fell critically ill in 2015, and her physicians told us in not so many words that she wouldn’t make it. Her heart was failing; she was old, etc, etc…
She was sent home a near-cripple, in an appalling state from a ‘pretty expensive’ hospital.
And since there was no way forward with medical science, I used my naturopathic training plus my years’ experience in my French gourmet restaurant to actually help her transition into death with ease and dignity and…eating good food…that’s what I know best.
Well, Instead of dying, she gradually got better. (It was a long, slow process but get better she did). And she’s been off all (allopathic) medication for the last 2 years with her physicians’ approval.
So here I am! I’ve been working on a book about Heart Health called ‘My Mum Beat Heart Failure’ (a lot is about…guess what?….food!)
I love good food, and so does nearly everyone I know. Those who don’t, I wouldn’t know how to help.
Do write to me about your health challenges, and also your diet – what you eat, etc. Please share your favourite recipes! The best will be published on this blog.
We can discuss and help you find a way forward with (delicious) food and proper supplementation.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Bon appétit !
