He said: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” In the early 1600’s Jakob Böhme from Germany wrote the book “The Signature of all Things." In this book he unveils his belief that God marked everything and created each with a sign (signature). It contends that every whole food has a pattern that resembles a body organ or physiological function and that this pattern acts as a signal or signs as to the benefit the food provides the eater.
