MEDICINAL FOODS 101
UNDERSTANDING THE MEDICINAL FOODS CROWDDOING INITIATIVE:

WHAT IS MEDICINAL FOODS?



Medicinal Foods aims to bring awareness and accessibility to medicinal foods as a supplement or key part of mental and physical health. Tinctures, teas and powders from herbal medicine combinations can represent better risk-reward ratios. Our research allows people to make informed decisions about their health and to increase access to healthy stress-coping alternatives.

ULTIMATE GOAL OF MEDICINAL FOODS


Foods & Herbs for Stress, Sleep & Anxiety Initiative aims to give people agency by educating people about their options with regards to their natural remedies for overall well-being. We do so by analyzing scientific research and clinical evidence, gathering new evidence through data science and citizen science, and recommending to individuals optimal combinations of teas, tinctures, and powders that can be used to achieve each individual's mental health goals.
