FEATURE TOPIC:
“Food and Medicine:
Your Diet and Your Health”

For too long, the role diet plays in health and healing has been a secondary topic in the practice of health care. For many practitioners, however, that is changing. A pharmacist recently observed that “everything we ingest has to be metabolized.” Our bodies are designed to metabolize food—but there is growing understanding that we are not designed to handle the standard American diet (SAD). The quality of the food we eat, the amount, and even when and how we eat it—all affect our health. How food combines with medications is also important. Food imbalances—such as too much sugar—have profound health consequences; and individual differences in how we process food are also important. In this issue we’ll ask: What is a “healthy diet”? What are important and problematic food-drug interactions? and How to address diet-related health problems, such as obesity and diabetes?

OTHER VOICES, OTHER CHOICES ARTICLES

A special section of the publication—Other Voices, Other Choices—provides a forum for area practitioners to submit articles related to the feature topic. In this section, we invite health care/health service providers who have a special connection to the feature topic to write articles about their work.

“Diet,” it’s clear, is more than a list of menu items. What foods we eat are, of course, important. But when we eat, why we choose the foods we eat, the quality of those foods, and how they interact with medications and supplements—all these influence our dietary health.

In this issue we want to include the voices of health care practitioners who work with patients and clients who are struggling to find an optimum diet: dietitians and nutritionists, weight loss specialists, coaches, and counselors. If you are a therapist helping those dealing with eating disorders or with addiction issues, we want to hear from you. The balance between diet and exercise is critically important, so physical therapists and exercise coaches offer a valuable perspective. And we hope, as well to hear from those who offer weight loss options—from specialized diets, to behavioral modification, to surgery.
