What does Food as Medicine really mean? It means realizing that food is the foundation for preventing or curing the majority of diseases, beyond well known ones like Diabetes. We work with you to create food subsidies for induction diets to help manage or even reverse Outpatient (e.g., Diabetes) diseases and avoid readmission for Inpatient (e.g., CHF) conditions.
While prescription medication (Rx) can certainly help conditions, it often comes at a cost, both financially and in terms of side effects. However, research now shows that food prescriptions (Fx) can have an even bigger effect on managing and even reversing conditions, with no side effects and at a much lower cost. Our RDs are licensed to handle many conditions typically linked to nutrition.
