Is Food the Remedy? Remedy Bone Broth and the Mediterranean Diet

You will hear us say from time to time that "food is the remedy". Now we do realize that this is sort of cheesy and yes, we do feel a bit clever when we say it, but it is deeply embedded in our lives here at Remedy Bone Broth. We fully buy into the fact that food is medicine. Do we mean food is medicine for acutely treating existing ailments and diseases?  Well, yea sometimes. Many foods have been proven to help overcome issues ranging from a grumpy belly to more serious diagnosis like cancer and everything in between.

Partnering with your doctor for preventative care

To be clear, we believe doctors are essential to acute care and are a valuable asset in guiding our preventative care.  Especially when the issue is beyond our understanding, doctors need to direct our treatment so that we don't make anything worse. There is nothing wrong with taking that medication while you work with your diet; they go hand in hand. We don't advocate avoiding the doctor and solely going homeopathic. What we mean when we say food is the Remedy is more of a mindset of "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of the cure". We don't just believe - it has been proven - that when you optimize your diet, exercise, cultivate good quality relationships, and practice good stress management, you would find most common ailments would not affect you as much as those who follow a typical "western diet", participate in little to no physical activity and use social media as their main form of socializing.

The Mediterranean Diet

We advocate for what is called the Mediterranean diet, which isn't really a diet as much as it is some lifestyle guidelines that can be tailored to most people. This consists of 80% fruits and vegetables, seeds, nuts, legumes, whole grains, and greens in a variety of shapes and colors. It includes moderate amounts of lean meats and fatty fish and little to no red meat, cured meats, sweets, and fried foods. (We think a little indulgence in that last part in moderation around holidays and special occasions are a part of balance.)

Remedy Bone Broth is great for almost any diet like Keto, Whole 30, leaky gut, FODMAP, and Atkins, and particularly suited to the Mediterranean protocols.
