A Must Read!!!
This is an excellent book about how food effects our body and what we can do about it. It doesn't just tell you what you may be doing wrong, but guides you on how to make the changes necessary to lead a healthy life. Dr. Clairborne explains which foods are good for the body and how to combine them for the most benefit. I was very impressed by the organization of the book and felt like she was holding my hand throughout. It is an easy read with great recipes at the end. (Vegetarian friendly too :))Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

In reading this excellent eye opener, I learned that in order to be healthy one must eat healthy. As a diabetic, I assumed I was watching and reading labels and doing the right thing. East Your Disease Away informed me that I was eating more harmful foods than I thought. Sugar supplements are harmful to the body if the wrong one is used. I learned to choose the right vegetables and how to prepare them in the least harmful manner. I recommend this book to anyone who questions why they don't feel the way they should. Medications help, but accompanied by the right foods enables the body to heal and gain strength.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Good book for nutrition, healthy eating, many details of value
This is an excellent book for information on general nutrition, giving details, including many simple and nutritious meals, as examples, for anyone trying to improve the quality of their eating habits and health. The book is written gracefully and gently. It is the type of book where you can get a few good points from, or you can use it as a basis for a complete change in eating habits, that is beneficial for all aspects of health, both physical and mental.Was this review helpful?

On the topic of sugar, as an example, it helps to explain who refined sugar can be harmful to one's health, which is pretty general knowledge for anyone somewhat familiar with nutrition, but also gives a breakdown on many alternatives for sweetening, and how they compare in nutritional value, taste, etc.
So, all through the book, there are a lot of good details, that even persons who already have a pretty good idea about nutrition can benefit from. It helps both the novice, as well as those who are a little more well versed in the subject of nutrition.
I'd recommend the book for those who are trying to improve any aspect of their physical health, but also mental health as well.
