Health movies can be a great tool to open your mind and expand your knowledge base. They’re easy and interesting to watch and they don’t take as long to view as it takes a book to be read. Today I’m sharing my top 10 inspiring health movies.
Food Matters – Food Matters is a hard hitting, fast paced look at our current state of health. Despite the billions of dollars of funding and research into new so-called cures, we continue to suffer from a raft of chronic ills and every day maladies.
Hungry for Change – We all want more energy, an ideal body and beautiful, younger looking skin. So what is stopping us from getting this? Hungry for Change uncovers prominent diet, weight-loss and food industry secrets.
The Shift – Dr Wayne Dyer explores the spiritual journey from ambition to meaning. The powerful shift from the ego constructs we are taught early in life by parents and society – which promotes an emphasis on achievement and accumulation – are shown in contrast to a life of meaning, focused on serving and giving back.
Overfed and Undernourished – examines a global epidemic and our modern lifestyles through one boy’s inspiring and personal journey to regain his health from the inside out.
Lunch Hour – examines America’s National School Lunch Program which exposes children to unhealthy, but culturally accepted foods at a young age. Is this the root of the childhood obesity crisis?
e-motion – Imagine a world where the trapped emotions, fears, anxieties and unprocessed life experiences we hold in our bodies are the source for everything that ails us. That’s the world we live in.
Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead – 100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health.
Microbirth – investigates the latest scientific research about the microscopic events happening during childbirth. These events could have life-long consequences for the health of our children and potentially could even impact future generations.
Finding Joe – an inspiring film about living your purpose, discovering your true self and seeing new possibilities for your life. Finding Joe provides a narrative for how to live a fully realized life – or as Joseph Campbell would simply say, how to “follow your bliss”.
Birth Story – Forty years ago, Ina May led the charge away from isolated hospital birthing rooms, where husbands were not allowed and mandatory forceps deliveries were the norm. Today, as nearly one third of all US babies are born via C-section, she fights to preserve her community’s hard-won knowledge.
