I started my gluten-free, milk-free journey over 20 years ago and really struggled with finding food alternatives. Products were limited and could only be found in a local health food store. Over the years, more options became available for people with digestive concerns, but it can still leave people overwhelmed with where to start.
Professional tap dancers, Anthony & Staci Lo Cascio, share their journey back to health with food changes with me on The Rising Blue Listening Room podcast. You can find out more about, Food As A Prescription, on their website, LocaFoods, or on Amazon. The book comes with great tips and recipes to bring more hope and less stress in gaining back your health!
With an increasing number of people implementing a gluten-free, soy-free, corn-free, and even a dairy-free approach to life, it has become apparent there is a massive amount of value in taking control of your diet and understanding your food – as a prescription. If you or a loved one suffer from allergies, skin irritations, or auto-immune issues like psoriasis, celiac disease, IBS, Hashimoto’s, ulcerative colitis or arthritis, or if you simply want to live an anti-inflammatory lifestyle, this handbook is for you!
Why doctors are writing prescriptions for food
Evidence suggests that healthy diets may be effective in helping control and reduce chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension.
But eating healthy can be a struggle, particularly for people who have low incomes. That’s why some doctors are directing patients to programs like the Fresh Food Farmacy in Pennsylvania, which provides healthy foods, nutrition education, and health screenings.
