We all know that what we eat makes a difference to our health and wellbeing.
Our interest in food and our health is reflected in the many news stories about superfoods, antioxidants, supplements and different diets that we are constantly being told about.
In the modern world it is thought that dietary factors account for up to as much as 30% of cancer cases alone in industrialised countries, meaning that these cases are theoretically preventable.
If we can prevent illnesses simply through changing our diet, what are we waiting for?
Food for Health – The Essential Guide, published this week, is the ultimate nutritional guide to self-sufficient health; it is for everyone who wants to look after their own health using everyday foods.
This informative guide describes how anyone can decide how much or how little they need to change: from making simple dietary changes to increase the intake of certain food nutrients, to following one of the therapeutic eating plans.
Whether the reader wants to reduce the risk of an inherited family illness such as arthritis or diabetes, improve existing health conditions such as high cholesterol, or follow a therapeutic diet to improve skin conditions, IBS or PMS, this book will provide the know how.
Sara Kirkham is a nutritionist with more than 20 years of experience in helping people to improve their health through changing their diet. Sara says, ‘If you want to take greater control of your own health and learn how to be your own ‘food doctor’ then this is the book for you.
‘[It] opens the door to a healthier way of life for you and your family through simple dietary changes all supported by research.’
