Healing With Whole Foods: Asian Traditions and Modern Nutrition (3rd Edition)
Manufacturer: North Atlantic Books
Brand: North Atlantic Books
Used as a reference by students of acupuncture, this is a hefty, truly comprehensive guide to the theory and healing power of Chinese medicine. It's also a primer on nutritionâ€”including facts about green foods, such as spirulina and blue-green algae, and the "regeneration diets" used by cancer patients and arthriticsâ€”along with an inspiring cookbook with more than 300 mostly vegetarian, nutrient-packed recipes.The information on Chinese medicine is useful for helping to diagnose health imbalances, especially nascent illnesses. It's smartly paired with the whole-foods program because the Chinese have attributed various health-balancing properties to foods, so you can tailor your diet to help alleviate symptoms of illness. For example, Chinese medicine dictates that someone with low energy and a pale complexion (a yin deficiency) would benefit from avoiding bitter foods and increasing "sweet" foods such as soy, black sesame seeds, parsnips, rice, and oats. (Note that the Chinese definition of sweet foods is much different from the American one!)Pitchford says in his dedication that he hopes the reader finds "healing, awareness, and peace" from following his program. The diet is certainly acetic by American standards (no alcohol, caffeine, white flour, fried foods, or sugar, and a minimum of eggs and dairy) but the reasons he gives for avoiding these "negative energy" foods are compelling. From the adrenal damage imparted by coffee to immune dysfunction brought on by excess refined sugar, Pitchford spurs you to rethink every dietary choice and its ultimate influence on your health. Without being alarmist, he adds dietary tips for protecting yourself against the dangers of modern life, including neutralizing damage from water fluoridation (thyroid and immune-system problems may result; fluoride is a carcinogen). There's further reading on food combining, female health, heart disease, pregnancy, fasting, and weight loss. Overall, this is a wonderful book for anyone who's serious abo...
Worry about cholesterol. Avoid red meat. Eat whole grains. Could it all be a lie?We live in an era of health hype and nutrition propaganda, and weâ€™re suffering for it. Decades of avoiding egg yolks, choosing margarine over butter, and replacing the real foods of our ancestors with low-fat, processed, packaged substitutes have left us with an obesity epidemic, ever-rising rates of chronic disease, and, above all, total confusion about what to eat and why. This is a tragedy of misinformation, food industry shenanigans, and cheap calories disguised as health food. It turns out that everything weâ€™ve been told about how to eat is wrong. Fat and cholesterol are harmful to your health? Nopeâ€”they are crucial to your health. â€œWhole grainsâ€ are health food? Not even close. Counting calories is the way to lose weight? Not gonna workâ€”nutrients are what matter. Nutrition can come from a box, bag, or capsule? Donâ€™t count on it! In Eat the Yolks, Liz Wolfe debunks all these myths and more, revealing whatâ€™s behind the lies and bringing the truth about fat, cholesterol, protein, and carbs to light. Youâ€™ll be amazed at the tall tales weâ€™ve been told in the name of â€œhealthy eating.â€ With wit and grace, Wolfe makes a compelling argument for a diet based on Paleo foods. She takes us back to the foods of our ancestors, combining the lessons of history with those of modern science to uncover why real, whole foodâ€”the kind humans ate for thousands of years before modern nutrition dogma led us astrayâ€”holds the key to amazing health and happy taste buds. In Eat the Yolks, Liz Wolfe doesnâ€™t just make a case for eating the whole egg. She uncovers the shocking lies weâ€™ve been told about fat, cholesterol, protein, carbs, and calories and brings us the truth about which foods are healthyâ€”and which foods are really harming us. Youâ€™ll learn truths like: - fat and cholesterol are crucial, not harmful . . . and why - â€œwhol...
