generally eat right anyway, but a couple of people who have read the book and practiced have actually recovered from their ailment, and some even from very severe conditions I can, of course believe, on a common sense level if the health problem is arrested with right diet the body can heal itself and be stronger again.I would strongly recommend this book for those who are constantly visiting doctors and having medicines for every little problem with their body You can be healthy again but you need to take charge of what you put inside they say stomach is the root cause of all illnesses And if you throw the right stuff in it will it pay you dividend So start thinking of your poor stomach who is so reliant on you Ah, it is worth getting an extra copy or two to keep handy for a near and dear one I got it as a gift I personally think, the information in the book is worth every penny spent As a friend put it, he s a real radical And yes, Paul Pitchford is very extreme in his assessments and directives No sweets, no dairy or meat, except for the super debilitated It can be hard to figure out where you fit into all the information, but, after 2 years of poring over this tome, I find myself mentally referring to it with frequency, as well as looking to it often for recipes and advice Also, importantly, it is no substitute for competent professional guidance, except maybe in v As a friend put it, he s a real radical And yes, Paul Pitchford is very extreme in his assessments and directives No sweets, no dairy or meat, except for the super debilitated It can be

recipes and advice Also, importantly, it is no substitute for competent professional guidance, except maybe in very standard cases like diabetes Highly recommended, but only serious candidates need apply Convenient would be the word I d use to describe this book And that s really what it is any time I need to refer to something on nutrition, I look it up in this book The Internet is extremely easy to use for research purposes Many times I ll use Healing with Whole Foods as a jumping pad, by reading through what Pitchford said about the topic, then using the terminology I pick up from the book to do further research online An example would be hypoglycemia I ll read notes from this book Convenient would be the word I d use to describe this book And that s really what it is any time I

written, then take what I learned from there to kickstart my research online for example, instead of doing a blind search for hypoglycemia on Google, I ll go in with the aim of finding out the role of glucagon in a certain context, or glycogen, or how specific foods affect the condition, so on and so forth.In other words, this book is fantastic for foundational knowledge, and encouraging the development of a very strong foundation via independent research from as many other sources as possible I don t refer to this book as an authority on anything, but again, as a jumping pad that is a great aid to me in furthering my own research and experimentation The principles of food energetics e.g., warming cooling drying moistening dispersing collecting nature of foods, the bitter, sour, sweet, pungent, salty, astringent flavors, etc are very useful The basic concepts of consumingplant based foods, chewing your food well, and paying attention to how you prepare and combine foods in order to balance deficiencies excesses in your body and how to identify excesses deficiencies in your body.these tenets are very helpful, and make a whole lot of sense.An example of how this helps me daily is that I ve gotten in the habit of eating raw radishes with heavy, fried meals, when I have them which isn t too often , in order to help digestion and I do find that this helps a lot , and I ve been getting better at zeroing in on what the problem is when I feel sick, e.g., bad food combinations, overeating, not chewing well enough, or general damp cold hot etc conditions and I can make active moves to remedy that, such as selecting foods with the appropriate qi nature, e.g., if I m feeling very hot and sluggish very easy in this humid weather , I might make an effort to eatcelery and cucumbers, eat radishes with meals to help with digestion, avoid overeating, focus on chewing well, and also stay away from warm or hot foods, as well as moistening foods Nutrition can be a very obsessive compulsive world Pitchford presents a very balanced view, and addressing foods as functional none inherently being better than another food, but actually have its own time and place in life to help us bestthis is a very balanced approach, and it s the perfect remedy to all the dieting crazes going on now, which I think can tragically be very harmful to people by locking them into obsessive or compulsive mindsets where they think of foods as good or bad Nutrition is all about balance You can overdo anything, and you can under do anything Overindulgence can be as bad as neglect a good lesson here is that over eating certain foods can incur deficiencies, as minerals can compete for absorption the safest route to take is to let yourself relax, and select foods from a very wide spectrum This book will help you find out what foods may be most appropriate for you in your current situation, and since we re dynamic beings, it will also help you find out what foods will be appropriate for you in any number of situations Sometimes dairy will be very helpful other times, it might be wise to avoid it completely Overall, reading this book can help you re train your body to get back into a natural relationship with food, and to help you to see foods as having a function and purpose in life to give you energy, and to help you along and teach you about which foods can best assist you for your current physical condition and individual needs I thought this was a very un biased and helpful book, overall, and I highly recommend it And if you don t agree with something he says, or want to knowabout it, you can go online and do some research This is one thing that s beautiful about the times we re living in now D so really, at the very worst, this book is an excellent resource for inspiring research and jumpstarting your understanding of nutrition and the immediate application of this knowledge into your daily life.This one s a win win all the way around Also, the recipes are amazing Simple techniques like making grain seed milks are basically like doors opening up a whole new food group I might be getting a little excited about that, but man, a lot of the ideas in there are pretty unique, and I m really thrilled to be able to try all these things out I love my oat yogurt XD Essentially a vegan adjustment of traditional Chinese medicine, this is a fucking tome and I haven t read all of it Nonetheless, it has the scent of total authority More of a life long reference than anything else, it is pretty great if you are interested in significantly changing your diet and balancing your constitution Recipes, self diagnostic stuff, theory, history, etc Immense. This is almost a daily read for me Highly recommend to anyone looking to improve their diet to combat an illness or to improve the quality of their life in general This might be the best guide to whole foods I ve ever ownedand I have quite a few This one ain t collecting dust on my bookshelf WE ARE WHAT WE EAT This book changed my life It explains how eating the right foods can heal what ails you, and it explains it in a way that makes total sense I first read this book in 1995, and i conti ue to use it as a reference to this day. Wow This book drops some serious knowlege on its reader It reads like a textbook and has so much information that I had to take copious amounts of notes No health platitudes just straight information Excellent. This was one of my textbooks in grad school and I thoroughly enjoy it It is full of information that is sure to change your eating habits for the better It lists different conditions and ways to eat to heal your body It has a great section on calcium, magnesium, and brown rice that I think is invaluable If you are concerned about what you eat and how to live healthier then you need to check out this book. `READ EBOOK ⇻ Healing With Whole Foods: Asian Traditions and Modern Nutrition ✙ Used as a reference by students of acupuncture, this is a hefty, truly comprehensive guide to the theory and
