"The Circadian Prescription" shows how anyone can achieve a full integration of their natural circadian rhythms -- those daily changes in the body chemistry and behavior that are common to all living organisms -- for optimum wellness and to fight disease. When circadian rhythms are out of sync the result is fatigue, chronic illness, and generally poor body functioning. Acknowledging that there are common underlying causes for a multitude of conditions, "The Circadian Prescription" proposes a ten-point program that can be used by anyone, no matter what their age, sex or health status. The core of this program is a powerful eating plan that shows how a simple shift in the timing of eating protein and carbohydrates will have a dramatic affect on over-all well being because the body is given the fuel it needs when it needs it. In addition, the program advocates the inclusion of specific foods and nutrients to enhance rhythmic integration as well as exercise, breathing and meditative practices that will bring the whole body into balance.
