Those of us with vitiligo, or other non-fatal conditions with no known cure, are only too familiar with the dismissive reaction that is the standard response of so many in the mainstream medical profession. "Go away and live with it" we are told. Others, even less fortunate than oursleves, who actually do have life-threatening diseases like cancer are told that their only hope of survival is to submit to toxic chemical and radiation treatments. What they are almost never told is that if the cancer does not kill them the treatment will almost certainly shorten, or even end, their life. And what we are never, ever told by the established western medical fraternity is that nutritional therapy can offer us a safe and more effective alternative - not to mention a superior quality of life after we are cured. And why are we never told this? Probably because the average medical student receives no more than half a day's input on the subject of nutrition in their entire education... and certainly because the whole of the medical establishment in the western world is both funded and regulated by the mammoth drug companies, in whose interests it is to keep us sick and coming back for more of their chemicals and toxins. If I sound cynical, it's because I am! I don't dispute that drugs and surgery are essential options in many cases. But how did we ever arrive at this crazy state of affairs where they are regarded as the holy trinity? How did western medicine ever stray so far from its hippoccratic roots and totally deny its fundamental principles that we are what we eat and that nutrition should be the first therapeutic resort? If you are in any doubt that Hipppoccrates was bang on when he said "Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food" take a look at this movie entitled "Food Matters" .
