Food Is Medicine
Tony and Elizabeth Boucher make up Food is Medicine Australia which has been in existence since 2015.
Tony and Elizabeth both went plant based in January 2014 after a debilitating fatigue illness affected Tony for two years. Desperate for answers, he stumbled across some information about eating plants to heal the body and, with the support of Elizabeth, his wife, and nothing to lose, decided to give it a go. Three days later, he felt amazing and has never looked back, and over the coming months and years, all of their other chronic conditions reversed too.
Since becoming whole food plant based, Lizzie and Tony have done extensive research into the science behind eating this way.
Tony is a scientist by background, and Lizzie has completed a Certificate in Plant-based Nutrition through eCornell University in the U.S, as well as her 28 years as a Registered Nurse. She has also completed the Wellness Forum Health’s Food over Medicine Certification Course and at present, she is completing The Wellness Coaching course with The American College of Lifestyle Medicine.
Whilst they are not doctors, they are extremely knowledgeable about the relationship between disease and food and are determined to get this very important message out to the public.
