New Documentary Reveals the Healing Power of Food

The Healing Effect is a new film about the healing power of food. It’s been dubbed by Food Matters as “the next big food film to expose the secrets of how you can activate your body’s own healing.”

The movie chronicles the story of Eric Wayne, a police officer in the city of Lowell, who has radically changed his life with the power of food. As Wayne says in the movie, “If I could just force you to eat the way I eat for a month, you would never eat any other way again.” Wayne has inspired his community as well as other police officers in the department.

The Healing Effect also features interviews with bestselling authors and experts from around the world. Some of the speakers include John Robbins, Joel Fuhrman, David Wolfe, Charlotte Gerson, John McDougall, Philip McCluskey, Shawn Stevenson, John Bagnulo and Daphne Miller.

The film outlines why bad genes are not your destiny; food and lifestyle secrets from some of the healthiest, oldest people and places on the planet; the power of prevention; and simple steps to get started right now in changing your life, one bite at a time.

As McCluskey says in the film,, “There is hope for every single person out there; it’s just one thought and decision away.”
