Ridvan celebrates Baha’u’llah’s time in the garden of Ridvan where He publicly declared His station as a Manifestation of God. The Ridvan Festival is 12 days long and is also the time of year where Baha’is elect their governing bodies.
In this talk, Dr. Shad (Farshad Fani Marvasti MD, MPH) explores the role of “Food as Medicine,” the interplay with the Baha’i Writings and an update on the state of the science with respect to food as medicine in the care and prevention of disease. The talk draws on his experience as a practicing physician, researcher and medical educator to look at selections from the Baha’i writings as well as evidence from emerging scientific theories and research in this field of medicine.
This talk was filmed at the Association for Baha’i Studies conference in Orange County, California in August, 2017.
The Association for Baha’i Studies (ABS) promotes the advanced study of the Baha’i Faith and its application to the needs of humanity, it holds an annual conference and sponsors seminars and symposia, engaging participants from all over North America. It publishes a peer-reviewed journal, ‘The Journal of Baha’i Studies’, occasional books and monographs, as well as other publications. It is also engaged in a number of initiatives to advance Baha’i studies among students and young adults and to stimulate broader interest in Baha’i studies.
Naysan is passionate about using the arts and media to explore the teachings of the Baha’i Faith. Back in 2011, Naysan started up the Baha’i Blog project, channeling his experiences in both media and technology companies to help create a hub for Baha’i-inspired content online.
Educational! Thank you!

Hope Dr. Shad and colleagues check out food as medicine for brain health too, see for example, http://www.truehope.com or Dr. Charles Popper of Harvard Medical School, 20 years research and experience now
