From the Publisher
Annotation The result of years of practice and research, Paul Pitchford's HEALING WITH WHOLE FOODS applies the tenets of Eastern medicine (such as balancing yin and yang energy within the body) to dietary planning. By understanding the benefits of, for example, "sprouted grains" and fermented foods (such as sauerkraut and kimchi), one can learn to harness the regenerative aspects of whole food to reverse the cumulative effects of poor diet that can lead to indigestion, depression, insomnia, cancer, and death. Pitchford specifically addresses the "eight principles" of Eastern healing, the six yin/yang divisions, and the five elements. Other goals are to steer from animal fats over to vegetable, to develop an interest in where food comes from, to explore new areas like the "super green" food such as algae and seaweed, and to fast.
Editors Note A guide to health, diet, alternative medicine, and natural food presentation teaches readers how to apply Chinese medicine and the five-element theory to a contemporary diet and treat illness and nervous disorders through food choices.
