The views expressed in our content reflect individual perspectives and do not represent the official views of the Baha'i Faith.

“It is certain,” the Baha’i teachings say, “that in this wonderful new age the development of medical science will lead to the doctors’ healing their patients with foods.” Those words from Abdu’l-Baha inspired Dr. Farshad Marvasti to become a physician, and to focus his practice on healing through diet. Join him as he explores the Baha’i principle of the agreement of science and religion, and examines the implications of that principle for curing and preventing disease through our dietary practices.
