About 2,500 years ago Hippocrates, the father of medicine in western culture, said the famous health quote: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”  This simple and powerful advice is the foundation of Wholesome, LLC.

If you have not heard this saying before, you may be familiar with the “Hippocratic Oath” physicians take upon the initiation of their medical career to uphold ethical standards of practice. The oath demonstrates the powerful impact Hippocrates has on modern medicine.

Yet to this day, more often than not, physicians and other medical providers spend little time, if any, counseling patients on the importance of diet for many lifestyle related conditions. Thus, leaving Hippocrates’ simple and powerful advice behind.

On top of that, with an abundant amount of information at our fingertips, our society has been bombarded with messages like “superfood”, “low carb”, "low fat”, “high protein” and countless other marketing messages. These messages are designed, keyword designed, to convince consumers to purchase their products.

How do we know what foods to eat? How can we easily incorporate them into our daily {busy} lives?

Wholesome, LLC was created by Alison Tierney, a Registered Dietitian, in 2015 to answer those exact questions. It was in 2018 when Lauren Luedeke officially joined the Wholesome team as the Digital Marketing Manager, blog contributor and to share her journey of fighting a chronic disease with the Wholesome lifestyle. Through weekly posts with healthy recipes, evidence-based nutrition, and tips and tricks, we can learn how to live a truly Wholesome life.
