There was no processed food, ant eating out was considered a luxury. And luckily for these people who did this, their health was increased, so as their metabolism remained healthy.
The visits from doctors were very rare, only when the disease was life-threatening, they didn’t go to the doctor when they felt sick, and they didn’t take prescriptions.
Whenever they got a fever, they would wait for it to pass. Whenever they were feeling sick they ate broths, soups and they rested. They trusted in the body’s natural healing process, they didn’t ran to the doctor to take prescriptions. The food was their medicine.
They ate everything from an animal, the parts that were rich with minerals and organ meats.
