From the Publisher
"Fix Your Mood with Food takes the mystery out of Traditional Chinese Medicine and makes it understandable and accessible. It shows how many people have used it to recover from serious conditions and how you can, too. In our research at the Physicians Committee, we have seen the power of dietary changes. With this engaging and practical book, you will have the tools you need for the best of health." --Neal D. Barnard, MD, president, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine"Fix Your Mood with Food is my new go-to guide for help with my depression and anxiety. It is an informative, clinical, yet easy-to-follow book to guide you into natural healing. I will be buying this book by the boatload for my friends, and I recommend you do the same." --Kim Barnouin, coauthor of Skinny Bitch "This smart, interesting, easy-to-read guide will have you healthier and happier than you've ever been. A great synthesis of East meets West, Fix Your Mood with Food covers it all." --Rory Freedman, Co-author of Skinny Bitch "Healthy eating has been a big part of my life since 1970, and I can promise you, it leads to healthy living. Fix Your Mood with Food is a great resource for those who want to enjoy a healthy and happy life." --Ed Begley, Jr., Actor and environmentalist"As a health and wellness advocate and a believer that food is thy medicine and medicine is thy food Fix Your Mood with Food is a great start." --John Salley, Former NBA player and sports commentator"You are what you eat! So take out the unknowns and start feeling great by digesting the awesome information, facts and stories that Heather has served up." --David de Rothschild, Environmentalist"All of my life I've struggled with my eating habits. Eating was a way of forgetting about problems. I grew up trying all diets available from Atkins to South Beach. It wasn't until I changed into a plant based diet and learned about greens and super foods and read Fix Your Mood with Food that I was finally able to feel healthy, stronger and younger than ever. I lost 40 pounds within my first year of going vegan and now I have plenty of energy to practice yoga, training at the gym and riding more than 100 miles a week on my bike. A plant-based diet has helped me overcome my food addictions and I highly recommended to everyone an expert like Heather." --Marco A Regil, Mexico's Number One Television Game Host
