Nutrition books I recommend…
I have read each of these books and I highly recommend them. It will make you think differently about food (and hopefully inspire you to make better food choices). I started doing my own research on food and disease a little over a year ago after I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism.
The solution from my western medicine doctor was taking pills. the pills did nothing but give me chest pain and upset stomach. I wasn’t feeling much better. after many frustrating appointments with doctors, I decided to see a naturopath and that changed everything.
Long story short, I cut out dairy, red meat, and coffee. In 3 days after doing this (as suggested by my naturopath) I felt TONS better. within 3 months my thyroid levels were back to normal. This was my first real experience on the healing power of foods. Since this experience, I have done tons of reading and research on nutrition.
Here are 4 books that helped me make a change and understand how food heals (and drugs do not)!
1) Forks over Knives
2) The Gerson Therapy (this is a MUST WATCH MOVIE). unreal this therapy is not allowed in the U.S. oh, that’s because no money is to be made if patients turn to fresh fruits and veggies to heal rather than pharmaceutical drugs. makes me sick! Did you know it is illegal to use this form of treatment in the US…only radiation, chemo and drugs are allowed.
3) Food, INC
4) The Starch Solution
If you have had your own experience or know of someone who was able to heal with foods, please leave a comment below. I would love to hear about it and want to spread the word to others.
