Welcome to all of you visiting The Food Rx Project for the first time! We are pleased that you have taken the time to explore the new site! Our organization is a new nonprofit dedicated to spreading awareness about the benefits of using diet, nutrition, Integrative Medicine, and a healthy lifestyle to treat chronic disease. Our first web platform is focused on helping individuals with inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis. In the future, we plan to expand in order to address additional disease states.
I Am Integrative is the name of the blog at foodrx.org. It is a community of individuals sharing research, information, recipes, tips, and health strategies that are relevant to people with IBD. This is your place to ask questions, make suggestions, and engage in a open dialogue about integrative methods of treating disease. We want this blog to be lively, fun, informative, and respectful. This is a safe place where all are all opinions are welcome.
We’ve assembled a talented group of bloggers on I Am Integrative to stimulate discussion. Our authors are experts on a wide range of topics, including diet, nutrition, disease diagnosis and management, exercise, integrative medicine, and traditional Western medicine, among others. Additionally, our Medical Advisor, Dr. David Rakel, is one of the foremost thinkers in integrative medicine today – recognized around the world for his contributions to the advancement of healthcare. Dr. Rakel may author blog articles from time to time, in addition to his role of periodically reviewing the content on the website.
I am really looking forward to getting to know many of you through our interactions on I Am Integrative. It is a wonderful thing that technology allows us to easily share information that can positively impact our quality of life. I can’t wait to work with you to find ways to improve your health, heal your body, and bring your IBD into remission. At the end of the day, that is the reason Food Rx exists – to help as many people as possible beat IBD and achieve remission. I am confident that as a community, we can achieve that goal.
Again, welcome to The Food Rx Project. I can’t wait to hear from you!
