The “Energetics of Food”

The “Energetics of Food”

The Energetics of Food is a study of the science of nature. Traditional peoples throughout the world were intimately connected to their natural environment and through this relationship they learned and applied the laws and principles of nature to all aspect of their lives. Eventually as knowledge increased this traditional wisdom became the scientific and philosophical foundation of the many natural healing arts we are so familiar with today. By combining ancient wisdom with modern nutritional research we can again learn the true meaning of the phrase, “Why you are what you eat.”
