Overview

While Nutritionist Joel Blanchard’s previous books on nutrition have focused on the therapeutic uses of food to address acute conditions, this book focuses on a diet that would benefit virtually every person. Far removed from the omnipresent “quick-fix” diets that are not healthy long-term, the "diet" presented in this book is a meal plan you can truly live with and thrive on. This health and energy-producing lifestyle is based on the latest scientific research on nutrition, actual transformations witnessed and experienced by the author, and the time-tested diets of successful indigenous peoples. Eating in this manner would aid athletes (Joel is a former nutritional advisor to professional athletes) and those interested in disease prevention, as well as those who just want to look and feel great. Those interested in rapid weight reduction would be hard-pressed to find a faster, healthier way to move towards their desired weight than the diet presented in this book.

Joel concisely and incisively assays many commonly-eaten foods that are an outright threat to your health, and states specific, easy-to-remember reasons why you should avoid them. Hundreds of healthy foods are on the menu, and careful instructions are provided to help you ensure that nature’s finest foods consistently wind up on your dinner plate.

In Chapter 4, Joel states that the digestive tracts of most adults who live in industrialized countries are not healthy due to poor diets, ingested and environmental toxins, bacterial imbalances, and a lack of simple maintenance. He states that an impaired colon significantly decreases the amount of serotonin in your body and predispositions you to anxiety and depression. The reader is asked to imagine, “What would your skin look like if you never washed it?” and “What would your sink and toilet look like if you never cleaned them?” in order to drive home the idea of caring for your colon. The author notes that “even if you are eating good food you will not be able to efficiently incorporate the food’s nutrients and energies into your body” if the integrity of your colon is compromised. A straight-forward method to heal your colon and maintain the health of your colon is then presented, based primarily on protocols Joel personally employed to heal himself of leaky gut syndrome, candida yeast overgrowth, irritable bowel syndrome and depression.

True to the nature of his latest writings, Joel speaks of the power of a healthy diet to create a healthy mind capable of bringing you closer to your own, best self. Energetic modalities intended to help you literally communicate with your own body are presented as well as a discussion on how you may proceed to significantly increase the amount of “life force” present in your diet. Your health is correlated to the relationship you have with your body.

Specific information is given to help you incorporate nourishing foods into a frantic, modern, work-a-day lifestyle. With no cooking required, this diet is a simple time-saver that is easy on the budget.

Meet the Author

Joel Blanchard was born and raised in New England. After graduating from Southern New Hampshire University, Joel moved to California where he soon became disenchanted with the business world, and eventually, himself. After a severe car accident woke him out of the linear, left-brained thinking that had plagued him for the previous 20 years, Joel decided that life was meant to be enjoyed and pursued his interests in health and healing by becoming a nutritionist. After working as a nutritional advisor to thousands of people, including some professional athletes, Joel came to realize that most people are suffering from tension, stress and suboptimal health due to limiting beliefs, improper diet, environmental toxins and nutritional deficiencies. Because he had solved his own challenges with panic attacks, agoraphobia, and irritable bowel syndrome, Joel excelled at helping his clients overcome these conditions. Eventually Joel decided to finally write his first book designed for publication. His critically acclaimed "The Complete Anxiety and Panic Attack Cure" has allowed Joel to help thousands of people move past their physical and mental challenges and find serenity and calmness in their lives. In addition to being an author and nutritionist, Joel is also a father, husband, organic farmer, chi gong practitioner, and a seeker of Universal truths. A believer in karma, Joel states that the more he helps others the more peace and happiness he sees in his life. Joel's stated goal is to be part of the change that transforms this physical dimension into a reality where everyone acts with integrity and truly cares about one another.
