By Elson Haas, MD
Celestial Arts, 1992
Every day more evidence points to the link between good health and nutrition. Based on five years of intensive research, Staying Healthy with Nutrition is the latest and most comprehensive guide to diet and nutritional medicine, the definitive resource for those concerned about their health.
The book is divided into four sections:
- "The building blocks" gives a detailed analysis of nutrition: water, protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, including amino acid and other lesser-known nutrients, and their uses in medicine.
- "Foods and diets" evaluates every food group and many diets from around the world. A special chapter on environmental aspects of nutrition examines the negative ecological impact food additives, chemicals, food irradiation and electropollution, and what we can do to lessen their impact.
- "Building a healthy diet" synthesizes the aforementioned information to help readers create their own individualized “ideal diet.” This section includes seasonal recipes and detailed daily plans for both food consumption and activities.
- "Nutritional applications: special diets and supplement programs" contains specific nutritional therapies that can enhance all stages of life and treat many common diseases and conditions.
For anyone interested in enhancing overall wellness, losing weight, treating illness naturally or living in closer harmony with nature, Staying Healthy with Nutrition is an important new reference guide.
