Nature Cures natural health advice


Let food be your medicine









Welcome to Nature Cures

The ancient wise words of Hippocrates should be heeded well, especially in light of so many new virulent drug resistant superbugs, such as MRSA, and toxic side effects from synthetically manufactured cleaning products, cosmetics, food additives, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, medications and pollution. Consuming natural organic food will enable the body to cleanse itself and fight off infections without drugs. The key to healing most health disorders, that medicine has lost sight of, is the fact that the body does heal itself naturally, if given the correct fuel. Let food be your medicine and do no harm...

Why choose natural foods?

Foods derived from natural organic plants, organically reared free-range, naturally-fed animals and fresh sea food are the most powerful way of building health on a firm foundation. What humans need are the basic elements beneath our feet - the dust of the earth. These basic elements are the 100+ minerals and trace elements that make up the earth's crust, the oceans and the human body. Once these have been correctly put into place in an individual, the constant battles with disease will be over.

Intensive farming techniques leech many vital minerals from the soil and food processing strips the vital nutrients from many foods which is causing a huge rise in malnutrition in developed countries. Fifty years of scientific studies indicate that most diseases seen in these countries, as well as the leading causes of death, are the result of diet and the build-up of toxins in the human body. The massive surge in the cases of many health disorders such as cancer, dementia, diabetes and obesity may especially be due to these factors.

Over consumption of unhealthy artificial substances, refined and sugary foods, powerful, and often toxic, medications and the lack of the correct fuel that the human machine requires plus too much pressure, stress and worry through out life will all have an adverse effect upon the health. Here is a place you can find all the natural foods, their nutrients and health disorders they can treat without constant pop-ups and irrelevant advertising banners or biased opinions.

How to tell if a food is organic

PLU (Price Look Up) codes are the 4- or 5-digit numbers on produce stickers that have been used by supermarkets since 1990. They represent a globally standardised system implemented by the International Federation for Produce Standards (IFPS), a group of national produce associations from around the globe.

The system is based on 4-digit codes that are within the 3000 and 4000 series. The numbers are assigned randomly, that is, each digit does not imply anything specifically, just an overall identification number. As an example, a small Fuji apple has the code of 4129, a large Fuji apple has the code 4132. If the 4-digit number is preceded by a 9, it indicates that it was grown organically.
