Is Sickness a Choice?

written by Head Health Nutter April 25, 2010

Do you doubt the truth behind the old adage, “you are what you eat?” Do you believe we have a choice between sickness or health? Well, for all you Doubting Thomas’ out there, there’s a new documentary in town called, Food Matters.

Imagine having the power to feel and look younger, heal all your ailments (no matter how serious the condition) and to live a long and vibrant life – for free – through the simple act of choosing the right foods. A truly liberating idea, isn’t it?

“Food Matters” is a documentary film which uncovers the trillion dollar “sickness industry” with a goal of educating the public about free, scientifically-verified, natural solutions to overcoming illness. Starring some of the most brilliant leaders in nutrition and natural healing, audiences learn that food matters.


The film suggests we’re poisoning ourselves with the typical North American diet and in the most fundamental sense, we’re suffering from chronic malnutrition. Knowledge is power so kudos to the filmmakers for heightening health awareness.

More importantly, however, is the self-empowerment behind the main message: there are specific lifestyle changes that can reverse even serious chronic disease!

(You can order the DVD online or stream the 80-minute film for under $5.)

Have you seen “Food Matters” yet?  Either way, we want to know what you think: Is Sickness a Choice?

I’m reminded of the saying, “Garbage in, Garbage out.” I would totally agree that what we put in our bodies have a direct reflect on our health. I’m glad that you’ve brought to my attention. I definitely need to watch what I put into my body.

Thanks for sharing!!

Thank-you for posting this article and the trailer. Just seeing it I got excited as it speaks the truth that people really need to hear.

Every so often I`ll take the time to notice what people are filling their carts with at the grocery store and it saddens me to see what people are feeding their children. What people fail to realize is that diseases can take years to manifest, so they don`t connect them with the poor food choices that were made years before, because as you say, we are what we eat.

Here`s hoping that many will read your article and/or see the documentary, take it to heart and start to take responsibility for their health.

I saw this movie over a year ago… and it changed my life!! Everyone needs to see it and live it. Baby steps in the right direction is all it takes.

@Jarrod: You’re so right about the `garbage in, garbage out’ – we’re exposed to many toxins on a daily basis, most of which we cannot control. But we CAN control what we eat and the nutrients from whole foods help rid our bodies of the garbage.

@WellTuned: You’ve pointed out an important observation – that people fail to connect their health with food choices because of the time delay. It’s docs like this one that will hopefully influence behaviour to build a healthier society. 🙂

@Libbie: I knew this would be a life-changing film! Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the movie. And you’re totally singing my mantra, Girl: “Baby steps in the right direction is all it takes!”

Heather sent me a question through email that I thought the community might benefit from:

“Hi Stephanie! As usual, very timely info! How many times have YOU watched Food, Inc.? I watched it for the 3rd time this past week. Is this one different by much?”

My answer:

Nice catch. I was going to mention Food Inc… I’ve only watched it once but I own it… it’s one of those docs that made me really sad (the treatment of animals in commercial farming was sickening).

Food Matters may touch a bit on commercial food production but it seems to concentrate more on the fast food & pharmaceutical industries. It also seems to be heavy in promoting natural healing through nutrition so there’s probably a whack of info about healthy eating. I’m REALLY psyched to watch it!
