We are what we eat! Explore how foods can affect our body.
The doctrine of signatures, dating from the time of Dioscorides and Galen, states that the color and shape of different plants, vegetable and fruits resembling various parts of the body can be used to treat ailments of those body parts. There was a theological justification for the doctrine of signatures, as stated by botanists William Cole that “ God would have wanted to show what plants would be useful for”.
