Hippocrates advised that you let your food be your medicine. In other words, eat quality 
foods that provide you with all the minerals and vitamins you need, and which promote 
good health.

Here are just a few examples.

Some common weeds are more nutritious than anything grown by farmers. 

Lamb’s quarter (Chenopodium album) is a common escapee from Europe that can now 
be found all over the globe. It’s a rich source of vitamins and minerals, and the greens can 
be added to soups, vegetable dishes, or salads.

Purslane is another common weed, in this case from India. Besides tasting good, purslane 
is the richest source of Omega 3 fatty acids in plants. Just rinse the plant, chop it, and add 
to salads, soups, egg dishes, and stews. You can also pickle the purslane stems.

Dandelion is a European native also found all over the world today. It is richer in beta 
carotenes than carrots! Though dandelion greens are bitter raw, they can be added to 
cooked dishes to mellow the bitterness.

Garlic should be included in your diet on a regular basis. If not garlic, then one of the 
other member of this family, which includes onions, leeks, shallots, ramps, etc. Put them 
in your soups and salads. They help to protect you from certain infections, and in some 
cases, have been shown to lower high blood pressure.

Lemon is another old remedy to help improve upper respiratory infections, and fight 

Vinegar has many health benefits. Read “Folk Medicine” by Dr. D.C. Jarvis, originally 
published in 1958. He addresses the many health benefits of vinegar in the daily diet. Be 
certain to always purchase raw apple cider vinegar, and not pasteurized.


If you take a lot of medications, you should stock up on whatever it may take to keep you 
alive. But also, simultaneously, you should consider exploring if your lifestyle and dietary 
choices are contributing to your health issues.

If you’re diabetic, for example, there is a large body of evidence suggesting that diet is a 
major contributing factor, as is excessive use of white sugar, 

I’ve interviewed former diabetics who altered their diets and who no longer take insulin—
this was cases of Adult Onset diabetes. In some cases, they ate all raw foods for awhile, 
cut out meats, sugars, sugar drinks, and even meats. Another common factor I found is 
that many of them began to consume prickly pear cactus products on a daily basis, either 
fresh or pill form.
