Hippocrates, the father of medicine, said that food should be our medicine, and medicine our food—and Healing Foods explores the theme. Most of the ‘super foods’ are explored—along with any evidence to support some of the more extraordinary health-giving claims for them—including acai berries, noni juice, pomegranate juice and spirulina.
