Foods Are Drugs

Here’s another daily tip from your friendly local dermatologist!

All right, so we’re gonna start talking about food, because food is the most consumed drug in the world. Now a lot of people think that food isn’t a drug, but it absolutely meets the criteria of a drug. We know that we’ll feel different if we consume a lot of healthful stuff vs donuts or chocolate or alcohol or anything that we ingest. Causes a physiologic change in our body and that meets the criteria of a drug. So if you start thinking about the foods that you’re consuming as a drug, each one with its individual side effect and adverse reaction profile just like you do when you take a prescription medication. I bet that you’ll change your mindset and I bet you’ll start thinking of everything is either a healthy drug or an unhealthy drug. So let’s start looking at donuts like cocaine, all the bad things that that can do to you. Let’s start looking at blueberries like the source of life, because if we can shift our mindsets to thinking properly about food as feeding the temple instead of improperly about food as drug addicts, then maybe, just maybe we can take control and have it be a joyous process instead of something that you fear or loathe or hate.
