Hippocrates

Hippocrates was an ancient Greek physician (c. 460 b.c -c. 377 b.c. ) who is considered to be the "father of medicine." I was recently tinkering around the Internet to find some information and came across some of Hippocrates' quotes. It amazed me at how timely they are. Since the good doctor lived to a ripe old age, I'd say he was really on to something.

"Let food be thy medicine."

“If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.”

“Walking is man's best medicine.”
