The Food Cure is a feature length documentary. It follows the stories of six ordinary people who make a radical choice, in the face of a devastating diagnosis. THE FOOD CURE is a rare and intimate look at the world of alternative cancer therapies and asks big-picture questions about food, health and the future of cancer treatment.
The patients in the film are following a controversial nutritional therapy based on the idea that strengthening the body's own immune system will allow it to detect and kill cancer cells on its own. This may seem far-fetched but it is the same idea behind some of the most promising and cutting edge new cancer research. Are holistic methods and high-tech medicine finding some common ground? Could the future of cancer treatments really be hidden in our own immune systems- and our food?
THE FOOD CURE hopes to add to a growing conversation about how food can impact the prevention, survivorship and ultimately, curing of cancer.
