phytochemicals and antioxidants
foods that boost immunity
how to choose the most nutritious foods
"standout" healing foods
how to design a diet for your individual optimal health, taking into account special dietary needs such as those of women, children, vegetarians, and others
food combining
diet-based healing techniques such as juicing, fasting, and detoxifying
how to avoid potential dietary dangers, including threats to water safety, foodborne diseases, food additives, food irradiation, antibiotics, genetically engineered foods, and undesirable substances such as caffeine, cholesterol, and sugar.

While not a cookbook, Prescription for Dietary Wellness also includes a number of easy, wholesome recipes and advice on cooking methods. It is a complete, practical guide to eating for good health.
