Food - Your Miracle Medicine is the breakthrough book on food and health for the nineties. It is the first comprehensive guide, based on the latest scientific research, that reveals how you can use the extraordinary powers of food to conquer disease - everything from colds to cancer - increase your mental energy and live longer. Jean Carper, the bestselling author of The Food Pharmacy, has now translated the amazing new discoveries about the medicinal power of food into practical advice and information that you can use every day to prevent and alleviate such common maladies as headaches, hay fever and arthritic pain, as well as to ward off our major killers, including heart disease and cancer.
In this book you will find out exactly what you should eat - and not eat - to prevent or relieve flu and congestion, heartburn, asthma, anxiety, stress, diarrhea, upset stomach, ulcers, high blood pressure, colic and spastic colon plus dozens of other symptoms and problems. You will also discover which foods can help you survive a heart attack or stroke as well as reverse clogged arteries, combat blood clots, shrink precancerous growths and block the spread of cancer. It is an invaluable guide that proves how small miracles performed by food inside your cells become major miracles in defeating disease. The lively writing makes it an irresistible read as well as a much-needed reference for using food as a partial alternative to costly pharmaceutical drugs and medical treatments.
Food - Your Miracle Medicine is based on more than ten thousand cutting-edge studies by researchers from prestigious scientific institutions around the world, including Harvard, Johns Hopkins, MIT and the National Cancer Institute.
Here are some of their astonishing findings you will discover in this book: eating a bowl of cereal daily could prevent some fifty thousand cases of colon cancer a year; avoiding milk and cheese may cure your arthritis; a little yogurt daily may prevent 25 percent of common colds; eating fish twice a week slashes your risk of heart attack in half; garlic helps clean out clogged arteries; coffee could alleviate two million cases of asthma; cabbage can help prevent breast cancer; sweets and starches can relieve anxiety, stress, depression and PMS; soybeans have tumor-fighting properties; and an orange a day can heal defective sperm, preventing birth defects and infertility.
