Summer Reading

Learning about food from the perspective of a medical provider has always interested me. How can we interact with our food in such a way that we can support healthy biochemical pathways in our bodies?

Physician and author Daphne Miller asks similar questions in her book Farmacology: Total Health From the Ground Up. I thought this was an insightful and easy read about Miller’s investigation into how our food is grown and how varied nutritional density can be depending on production methods. She weaves her story through vegetable gardens, egg and dairy farms, even flower fields used to make hydrosols. Her lens as a medical expert gives the reader food for thought considering healthcare factors in their next trip to the grocery store.
