Re: Both!!

"When H says "Let your food be your medicine" he is not literally talking about food having medicinal properties. In context, he is metaphorically saying "let medicine be your food", better understood "let the art of medicine be your intellectual food", feed the mind (which is a common theme in much of what Hippocrates said). Philosphers during H's time were focused on feeding the mind, because thats what distinguished them from the average (and highly uneduated) population."

So let me get this straight - Hippocrates did not really mean "let your food be your medicine" when he said "let your food be your medicine". What Hippocrates really meant by that was that healing comes from being intellectual - and superior to the common rabble?

In other words healing by haughtiness? I will admit thats the way corporate medicine seems to work these days.

You're obviously an eloquent dissembler, but I'm not sure anyone could pull that one off. Nice try though.
