Food is Our Medicine and Medicine is Our Food: Chilean Nutritionist Nelba Villagrán, P1/2 (In Spanish)Del 2
Nelba(f): Nobody knew that
phytochemicals existed, that therapeutic elements exist in foods that
are able to cure cancer, arthritis or a number of diseases today.
Fortunately, science today has demonstrated that foods not only nourish but also heal.
Welcome energetic viewers to today’s Healthy Living featuring the
esteemed Nelba Villagrán, a vegetarian Chilean integrative
nutritionist, food engineering graduate from the University of
Santiago, Chile, president of Chilean College of Nutritionists,
president of the Chilean chapter of the Spanish American Association of
Alternative Orthomolecular Nutritionand Anti-aging and an instructor at
theFinis Terrae University, Chile. Ms. Villagrán advocates the use of
whole grains, fruits, vegetables and herbs to cure and prevent disease
and to promote good health, and believes that regular contact with
nature has medicinal value.
We now bring excerpts of our
interview with Ms. Villagrán and her presentation at the “SOS – A Quick
Action to Stop Global Warming” international climate conference held on
November 16, 2009 in Orizaba, Veracruz, Mexico where Supreme Master
Ching Hai was Guest of Honor.
People who consume excessive protein diets, excessive animal-based
foods are those that have the largest number of health problems, the
highest number (cases) of osteoporosis, and the highest number of
Meat consumption is definitely associated
with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, degenerative
diseases and a life in old age that is far less happy.
Villagrán advises that these diseases can be prevented through a
vegetarian diet with minimal consumption of processed and cooked foods,
and says enzymes are key to improving health and thus recommends that
60% of our daily dietary intake consist of raw foods.
