Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food
to eat is a subject that is eternally before us, in the media and in
our daily lives. We all love to eat and need to eat for survival. Every
day seems to bring a new “diet”, usually promising weight loss and a
long life. Every day also seems to bring new reports of what foods are
healthy or what pills we should take to lose weight and live

Desert Mountain Health Center is dedicated to

counseling, group presentations and support groups, you can learn what
to eat, how to prepare delicious and satisfying meals, how and where to
shop, how to save money on food costs, why this information is not
generally known, and how to navigate our culture which is not
supportive of healthy eating.
