From Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa, the bestselling author of Meditation as Medicine, comes a remarkable book that helps you achieve maximum health by eating well. Grounded in science, Food as Medicine is a pragmatic and accessible reference that sets readers on the right nutritional path. Dr. Khalsa then explains how to use natural organic juices and foods as medicine, and how food can help reverse the progress or diminish the symptoms of certain diseases, such as Alzheimer's and Hepatitis C.
Drawing on patient case histories, Food as Medicine outlines the seven principles of "The Khalsa Plan" for healthy eating, details ailment-specific nutritional plans, and lays out dozens of delicious recipes that promote overall well-being. After all, food is not only the original medicine -- it's the best medicine.
Nutritionist, longevity expert, and Kundalini yogi Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa offers a nutritional path that is both spiritually sound and medically tested to relieve depression, insomnia, high blood pressure, and other ailments. He discusses the benefits of eating organic foods, juicing, fasting, and preparing foods in a conscious and mindful way. Most helpful is a section called "Eat This for That," wherein he prescribes specific foods to prevent specific diseases. Helpful appendices provide examples of high-protein vegetarian sources and suggested resources for further investigation into healthy eating.
