There are many reasons why we should pay attention to what we eat. The processed, low-variety foods many of us consume regularly may be convenient and tasty, but they compromise our health. We especially need to pay attention to what we eat when we are sick so we can give our bodies the nutrients it needs to heal. And if you want to be even more deliberate in improving health—perhaps to address a chronic disease or condition—a holistic approach can yield significant benefits.

In this episode of Fight Back, we hear from Jamie about some of the practical implications of Food as Medicine, including how to access healthy foods. Then, we talk with Michele Lew, Chief Executive Officer of the Health Trust, an organization that helps people at risk in the Silicon Valley area gain access to healthy, nutritious food. Join us as we learn how food can improve your health!
