Documentaries on Health

Looking for revealing documentaries on health and lifestyle?

Hulu and Netflix offer loads of great documentaries. Some of these are great for children to watch as well.  We have used some of these videos in our home school lessons.

The Gerson Miracle
    The Gerson family reveals how food is our medicine and can reverse health issues and disease that many doctors say can only be healed through intense, harmful chemical therapies. You can learn more about the Gerson therapy on their website, http://gerson.org

Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead
    This documentary follows a man who changes his life through juicing and a lifestyle diet change.

A River of Waste: The Hazardous Truth About Factory Farms  
    This documentary tells about about how factory farms hurt the environment- how it harms the soil, our water sources, and therefore everything else.  Very interesting, as we often don't hear about this side of things. It's not just about how disgusting factory farming is!

Food Matters
     Is a collection of interviews with leading Nutritionists, Naturopaths, Scientists, M.D.'s and Medical Journalists providing proven solutions for overcoming illness naturally.  You can find more support, recipes, etc on their website,  http://www.foodmatters.tv .

Dirt! The Movie
    This is a wonderful documentary that details how the health of our soil impacts the health of our bodies. "Dirt feeds us and gives us shelter. Dirt holds and cleans our water. Dirt heals us and makes us beautiful. Dirt regulates the earth’s climate. Dirt is the ultimate natural resource for all life on earth."  More information available at http://www.thedirtmovie.org .
