Healing With Whole Foods is an encyclopedia of useful information. Learn which foods will treat your particular disease or discomfort. Learn how foods affect you and why you should consume or avoid certain veggies, spices, or meats. This book has it all! It also explains the properties of foods, and touches on the philosophies behind planning a balanced meal. Of all the books in my library, Healing with Whole Foods is one of the most useful. I actually have 2 copies and gave it out for Christmas to my family members! If you want to become more empowered and learn how to take control of your health, get this book! I highly recommend it!
