Did you know that holistic diets have been used for literally thousands of years in China? The emperor and his court used to have an official that I suppose we would call a nutritionist whose job it was to make up good, healthy diets for the members of court.
A lot of the same principles from that Chinese diet therapy are still applied today in holistic detox diets and even holistic health diets in general.
It's actually really fascinating to see how much power food has on your body. We tend to think of food as just food, a luxury or entertainment, or even just a fuel. However, ancient Chinese believed (as many cultures still do) that food can have an almost medicinal effect on your body.
It's just a fascinating topic in general, whether you believe it or not, so I'd really encourage people reading this to do a little research of your own. You might be surprised to find out just how powerful food can really be.
