Fifteen years later, I heard the word Phytonutrient for the first time and the puzzle pieces of my life fell together.
I understood from both ancient and modern medicine, that naturally occurring nutrients in plants give fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes their medicinal, disease-preventing, health enhancing properties.

Given the right tools, our bodies can heal from even the most feared diseases.
