Ibn al-Qayyim stated:
|"Physicians are agreed that when treatment is possible through diet, there should be NO recourse to medicines; and when treatment is possible through a simple [treatment], there should be no recourse to a compound. It is said: Whenever it possible to heal an illness by diet and precautions, there should be NO attempt to heal it with medicines..." ("Medicine of the Prophet", Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya, Islamic Texts Society, p.7 - Arabic title: "At-Tibb an-Nabawee")
Ibn al-Qayyim (rahimahullaah) continues to say that one should "not be enthusiastic for medicines". The problem with many of us today is that we don't look to food as a medicine - we use it only to fill our bellies and to take pleasure from it. But the people of oldern times, who knew the value of health and knew the value of food because it was scarce, used food to prevent and cure illnesses - to value it as a gift - they developed cures from food that till this day are valuable in preventing and curing chronic illnesses.
GREENS ARE AMAZING FOR PREVENTING ILLNESSES AND CURING THEM! START TODAY...
"Greens are good, Green Superfoods are even better! Green superfoods have the highest concentrations of easily digestible nutrients, fat burning compounds, vitamins and minerals to protect and heal the body. They contain a wide array of beneficial substances including proteins, protective photo-chemicals and healthy bacteria helping you to build cleaner muscles and tissues, aid your digestive system function and more effectively protect you against disease and illness.
Green superfoods are extremely rich in chlorophyll - the pigment that gives plants their green color. Studies show that when this is consumed, the production of hemoglobin in blood is increased. Higher amounts of hemoglobin in the bloodstream means more oxygen-rich blood, the first and most important element that cells need to thrive." 
WHERE DO YOU START?
"Green leafy vegetables - Green leafy vegetables are so readily available and so highly nutritious, however most people do not eat enough of them. Studies continuously confirm that populations that eat a diet high in green leafy vegetables run a far lower risk of heart disease and cancer. Fresh raw green leafy vegetables contain high doses of chlorophyll, easily digestible proteins, enzymes and a wide range of vitamins and minerals. These particular vegetables act as mini-transfusions for the blood, a health tonic for the brain and immune system and a cleanser of the kidneys. Try any of the following: rocket, spinach, dandelion greens, kale, watercress, parsley, lettuce, endive, chicory, broccoli sprouts and mustard sprouts."
MAKE IT ORGANIC IF YOU CAN
"Organic produce is labeled organic when it has been grown, raised, harvested and packaged without the use of harmful chemicals, such as fertilizers, pesticides, insecticides, growth hormones or antibiotics. Organic also means the produce has not been genetically modified. When we choose organic we not only look after the health of our own body and immune system but also the health of our family...
The best way to get organic produce in the home is to grow it yourself. If that's not an option, try your local grocer, farmers market, or search the internet for a company that delivers organic produce to your door."

HOW DO YOU GET HIGH DOSES OF HIGHLY-NUTRITIOUS GREENS INTO YOUR DIET?
Easy! Get a juicer. A masticating juicer is the best way to get these amazing super foods into your system. Get a juicer and juice your way to a healthier life. Let food be your preventative medicine - build your defences and the defences of your children!
"Fresh juice contains nature's bounty* of vitamins and minerals in a concentrated and highly bioavailable form. Whilst fiber is an essential component of healthy eating, its presence impedes digestion and nutrient absorption. As fiber is extracted during the juicing process, nutrients are maximally available to the body and rapidly flood the bloodstream with their healthful properties. Additionally, juices are most commonly consumed raw, without heat-induced enzyme damage.
Whilst our dietary recommendations are to eat a minimum of five vegetable and two fruit servings per day, the sad reality is that many of us are failing to eat even half of that. Juicing is a wonderful addition to a high-fibre, healthy diet for added vitality and wellbeing. Fruit and vegetable juices can also be used to detoxify, lose weight and increase phytochemical consumption."
