Cary Neff Executive chef and director of food & beverage, Miraval, Life in Balance Resort, and author of "Conscious Cuisine" "Food as Medicine" is a passionate, thought-provoking testimony to the veracity and wisdom of alternative healing practices. It is a well-conceived, thorough guide for anyone seeking wellness through the wonderful medicinal power of food.From the Publisher:
Food is the original medicine. Food is the best medicine.
From Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa, acclaimed author of the national bestseller Meditation as Medicine, comes "Food as Medicine" -- a remarkable book that balances both of Dr. Khalsa's specialties by advising readers on how to achieve maximum health from simply eating responsibly and well.
Grounded in medical science, Food as Medicine is a pragmatic and accessible reference for anyone seeking guidance on healthy eating or simple food remedies. Dr. Khalsa begins by setting readers on the right nutritional path -- regardless of their current eating habits -- and explains how to go organic, how to use natural organic juices and foods as medicine, and how special-food diets can help reverse the progress or diminish the symptoms of certain diseases, such as Alzheimer's or Hepatitis C.
The book is filled with interesting food facts: Blueberries can increase brain longevity through their ability to help release dopamine in the brain. Kiwi fruit, because of its high levels of disease-fighting antioxidants and phytonutrients, is said to be an excellent source in battling cancer and heart disease. Pears, with their high content of certain minerals and fibers, can help prevent fibroid tumors.
Drawing on Dr. Khalsa's own life experience as well as patient case histories, Food as Medicine outlines the seven principles of "The Khalsa Plan," details information on his other nutritional plans designed to target specific ailments, and lays out dozens of delicious, time-tested recipes that promote overall health and well-being.
