Meet The Pharmacist Who Uses Food to Heal

It’s been quite a year, and while some are asking for a redo and others are sharing how to finish these 365 days strong, and we know some Healthy Huemans who may be able to help with that. Whether you’re recovering from an illness or surgery, struggling with mood swings or weight gain, the foods and beverages you consume can either help or hinder your recovery.

Mona Vand is a Persian-American Doctor of pharmacy who believes in the power of food and natural healing as a first choice, and medicine as the last resort. She shares how the food we consume can be the medicine we give our bodies every day.

Most pharmacists believe in filling prescriptions. Mona believes in a healthy lifestyle. Medication is only part of the equation for maximum health. The food you eat can affect your health and your risk for certain diseases. To eat healthier food, you may need to change some of your daily habits.

Wellness stems from the diet, exercise, and mindset and Mona teaches over 100k people on youtube how to eat the right foods for mind, body, and soul.

Using Food Daily To Improve Maintain Your Health

If we get too much food or food that gives our bodies the wrong instructions, we can become overweight, undernourished, and at risk for the development of diseases and conditions. Mona has a series called “what I eat in a day” that provides recipes and tips and tricks to help with gut issues, alkalizing the body, dehydration, inflammation, and other health issues.

Using Food To Improve your Health

But along with eating to stay healthy, there are also foods that can help tackle pre-existing issues. There are disease-fighting foods that should be in everyone’s kitchen because they contain such a wealth of disease-fighting substances. Nutrient-packed foods can help ward off ailments ranging from hormonal imbalance, heart disease, to the common cold.

Creating Healthy Food Habits

When it comes to eating, we have strong habits. Some are useful (“I always eat breakfast”), and some are not so helpful (“I always clean my plate”). Although many of our eating habits were set during childhood, it doesn’t mean it’s too late to change them. Mona provides tips to help with issues like binge eating, sugar cravings, and healthy subsititues.

Eating a healthy diet is not about strict limitations, losing a lot of weight, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health, and boosting your mood.
