I am a 58 year old physician and I know that by following the Word of God from the Bible you can not even get sick. If you are sick, if you follow what the word of God tells you, you will be cured. In Genesis He tells you what to eat for meat. The Jesus tells what to substitute for dead flesh. That only the beginning though
I would love to hear more from you since you are a doctor. Do you agree with eating nothing but natural foods that God has provided? What do you tell your patients when they are looking to feel better? Are you prescribing man made chemicals are telling them that health is found in the food they put in their bodies? It is nice hearing from someone who is able to see both sides of the issues. I imagine most people will get upset if you told them to change their diet to a natural diet that did not include blood or starch.
I'm not the Doctor, but the problem that Jesus has with the "Natural Foods" diet(s) is that you essentially replace God with an endless quest for foods, herbs, etc.
The time and resources spent on acquiring these things is anti-Christ.
You going to fly in Acai berries from Peru? You need to eat Coconut Oil by the bottle when 100 years ago nobody even knew how to extract it? (Just an example, don't get worked up)
You need to chain up 1000 native Africans to find and scrape Tree bark from Lion infested Savannahs so that your kneecaps will be properly lubricated...
Can only go to Whole Foods to buy your strawberries?
This is not what Jesus Christ would advocate. He would tell you that it's not what goes into your body, but what comes out of your mouth.
Further, he would explain that anything offered in Love or taken in thanksgiving will be good for your body, provided you are not treading into Vice or gluttony.
You do more karmic harm refusing a ham sandwhich because you're Kosher when your Aunt makes one for you versus eating the Ham Sandwhich, making her happy and giving purpose to the pig that died.
Humility, gratitude and openness to recieve in Love.
Endless manhours worrying about food...that's Satan.
