This timely guidebook is divided into two major sections, each written by a different expert. In part one, “Food Is Medicine,” Pierre Jean Cousin argues that certain foods not only prevent specific medical conditions, but can often alleviate or even heal their symptoms. Cousin offers a practical overview of the curative properties of foods and drinks, organized with charts and thorough cross-referencing for instant access to the vital facts.
In “Eat for Immunity,” Kirsten Hartvig explains exactly why a healthy immune system is the key to good health—and shows how, with the right foods, we can prevent disease and fight infection. By following her simple principles, and making the tasty, nutritious recipes here part of an everyday diet, readers can boost their body's defense system, look and feel better, and enjoy increased vitality. For ease of use, all the information is indexed by food, ailment, and recipe.
