Alhmdulilah, praise the creator for this program, channel 4 new offering for the 21st century, promoting the relationship between food and health, something muslims who are not addicted to chicken cottage have been saying for years, as well as Hindus and some other faith groups and alternative practitioners.

channel 4 , every week have desperate guinea  pigs with a series of health problems ranging from breast cancer to thrush, they put them on a change of diet for 6 weeks while they are still using pharmaceutics medicine to show that changing their diet actually works.

 As a  psoriasis sufferer myself, last night program said to cut out meat, just fish, cut out sugar and sweet things. Its good to eat basil, turmeric ,rosemary,eat lots more fruits and veggies. Just checked out the web site and you really need to watch the programmes as ht diets on the web site are not as specific as what  the dietician says in the programme.

 After my cidar vinegar and honey and water this morning, i had fresh kiwi and pineapple juice , left it half an hour then had this screambled egg, grilled tomato and loads of  fresh basil, the egg is not ideal however increasing our awareness and make small changes is a move in the right direction.

Alhamdulilah, praise the Creator

All in all its a good program for everyone, in Islamic medicine ,after making duaa/prayer, the first prescription that muslim doctors and all doctors should do is look at the person’s diet and get them to make changes in what they eat. Keep it coming, inshallah, this program is great for increasing community awareness,if affirming for those of us already  on this tip and for the rest of us we’ll catch up eventually.
