“Health depends on the harmony of the basic elements in the human body”, wrote Hippocrates the Father of Medicine 2,500 years ago. ‘Diaita’ which, from ancient Greek, means literally ‘way of life’, preserves or disrupts this inner harmony influencing our health and state of being. Hippocrates understood the properties of foods, the importance of exercises, music and social interaction in maintaining harmony. Emphasising the relationship between the quality of food and the soil, his practical advice on cooking and the impact of fasting on health can help us today in our search for a harmonious, healthy life.
