Dr. Daphne Miller brings us beyond the simple concept of "food as medicine" and introduces us to the critical idea that it's the farm where the food is grown that offers us the real medicine. By venturing out of her clinic and spending time on seven family farms, Dr. Miller uncovers the aspects of farming, from seed choice to soil management,that have a direct and powerful impact on our health. Bridging the traditional divide between agriculture and medicine, Dr. Miller shares lessons learned from inspiring farmers and biomedical researchers, artfully weaving their insights and discoveries into the narrative, along with stories from her patients. The result is a compelling new vision for sustainable healing and a treasure trove of farm-to-body lessons that have immense value in our daily lives.
