Overview

Stop treating your stomach like a compost and start treating it like a garden.

Adam had it easy. He ate the fruit off the trees and the leaves from the plants. There was no pasta, pesto or pizza. Our modern diet, with all its complexity, requires more gusto than our sedentary bodies can achieve. Flatulence is not the only fallout. We pay for our indigestion with our energy and our longevity. Every stress on the digestive/eliminative system is a drain to our daily energy level and a threat to long range health. Change your bad habits. Navigate through your meals for optimum digestion and turn your health around.

Explains the Laws of Quantity, Frequency & Chemistry. Digestion Times of Different Foods. Mastication. Good Habits. Bad habits. Foods to Avoid. Influence of Emotions. A Perfect Meal. An Awful Meal. How to Strengthen Digestion. Use of Herbs & Enzymes. Controlling Appetite. Food as Energy.

About the Author:

Steve was pronounced "Sproutman" in a 1977 Vegetarian Times Magazine feature article that explored the why's and wherefores of his 100% sprout diet. While over 2 decades time, most diets change, Steve is still a believer in living foods and one of the most prominent spokespersons for sprouting.

Steve got interested in sprouts after a 20 year effort to correct chronic allergies and asthma with conventional medicine. He made dramatic changes in diet and within two months of eating a strict "living foods," vegetarian diet, his lifelong symptoms disappeared. He continued to practice a 100% raw foods diet (nothing cooked, packaged, canned, frozen or processed) for five years. During that time, he also experimented with other extreme diets such as fruitarianism (just fruit) and fasted for as long as 100 days.

Steve is the inventor of two home sprouters, the Flax Sprout Bag and the Kitchen Garden Salad Grower. He is the author of several health and diet titles including Juice Fasting and Detoxification, Wheatgrass Nature's Finest Medicine, Sprouts the Miracle Food, Sproutman's Kitchen Garden Cookbook, and the forthcoming Wetter is Better and Power Juices.

Steve has been featured on the Home Shopping Network, TV Food Network, in Prevention, Organic Gardening and Flower & Garden Magazines. In 3 minutes on QVC, 953 people ordered his Cookbook and Tabletop Greenhouse.

What People are Saying About This

Alice Angelos
Dear Mr. Meyerowitz, Thank you for your book Food Combining & Digestion. I have suffered with poor digestion for some 20 years. No, I cannot say that I am cured today. But I learned so much from your book that I am now more confident then ever that I am can achieve a more normal life when it comes to eating. I have been plagued with gas and indigestion it seems...forever. I have been to countless doctors and spent a fortune on tests, with basically no progress. You sir, in your fabulous little book, seem to be echoing all my complaints. For the first time, I have found a direction that makes sense. Albeit, it is not I quick fix. I understand the changes you suggest are broad and all encompassing. But I have begun. Already I have experienced more progress than I have in years.
