“Let Food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” Hippocrates

Never before have we as a nation been so unhealthy and never before as a nation have we eaten so poorly. In today’s world of processed food, fast food, and GMO crops, where antibiotics and steroids, food coloring, additives and preservatives, pesticides and herbicides, trans fats and high fructose corn syrup are being added to our daily diet, it is no wonder that we are a nation riddled with obesity and chronic diseases. Hippocrates states “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. At Oaktree Wellness Center, we believe that food can be medicine and that by changing diet and lifestyle, many of today’s common ailments and disease can be reduced or eliminated.

Naturopathic Nutrition stresses the use of whole and organic foods as medicine - an integral concept of healing in many indigenous societies. Today, we see that a return to chemical-free foods, along with other dietary measures, is an effective answer to many health complaints and common conditions.
