Let Food Be Thy Medicine…

Hippocrates is considered the father of Western Medicine and lived from 460 BC to 377 BC. Some of his sage advice included, “Let food be thy medicine & let thy medicine be food.” [Aside: Did you know that modern physicians no longer take the Hippocratic Oath? So is it any wonder why abortion and euthanasia are so prevalent in our society!] Today we are finding that to live by his maxim above is more and more difficult. Not just because higher quality organic food is exceedingly higher priced, (most especially, considering for the larger traditional Catholic families), but also because of many other factors such as: local availability; being aware of nutrition in general; keeping informed on the latest Big-Agra research, marketing, and USDA involvement in the agricultural industry.

About Catholic Rural Solutions

This group is for the practical application of Catholic Distributist teachings as promoted by Pope St. Pius X, Belloc, Chesterton, Maurin and others in the 20th century. This group is also a respite for traditional Catholics who adhere to the Tridentine Rite of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and who share a concern for small independent Catholic communities throughout the world. These communities while primarily small holding farmers, craftsmen and tradesman all espouse an integrated life based on Catholic Social Justice and the Sacred Magisterium of the Church. Through this we intend to inject the Distributist economic principles into the greater society. Please fell free to share your experiences in this vein. Flaming, proselytizing and persecution WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
