Overview

Dr. James D’Adamo burst onto the world of natural medicine in the 1970s with his revolutionary discovery of, and approach to, healing based on a person’s blood type.

Written in the infancy of America’s modern natural-healing movement, his first book, One Man’s Food . . . is someone else’s poison, detailed his unique, individual treatment method that correlated a person’s type of blood with diet, exercise, and spiritual practice.

Just An Ounce of Prevention . . . Is a Pound of Cure comes almost 30 years later, as people around the world have increasingly awakened to the efficacy of natural remedies . . . and at a time when the American health-care system is increasingly failing the public.

In this fascinating book, Dr. D’Adamo exhorts us to take responsibility for our own health and prevent chronic degenerative diseases using his newest discoveries, which has given him the opportunity to treat more than 50,000 patients. He explains which foods and exercises are right for each of us, what assets and liabilities we’re born with, and how our minds can work to better process information. This book contains Dr. D’Adamo’s most up-to-date and comprehensive teachings; and includes recipes, exercise regimens, and a panoply of natural therapies he recommends to the patients at his institute.

Just An Ounce of Prevention is the consummate statement on natural healing from this generation’s most original naturopath. As Dr. D’Adamo writes: “We are all here for a purpose, and we can only aspire to our physical and spiritual fulfillment when the body is healthy and the mind clear. Blood types are a Truth of Nature and, if followed, will provide a person with the physical and spiritual health that Nature has intended for them.”

Meet the Author

       Dr. James L. D’Adamo, N.D. D.N.B, is the originator of the world-famous Blood Type Diet and director of the D’Adamo Institute for the Advancement of Natural Therapies. Trained in the United States, Germany, and Switzerland, Dr. D’Adamo revolutionized natural medicine more than 50 years ago with his discovery of the correlation between a person’s blood type and his or her dietary and exercise requirements. His landmark books, One Man’s Food . . . is someone else’s poison (1980) and The D’Adamo Diet (1989), rejected standardized approaches of treatment and passionately called for diagnosis and care based on the individual.

Dr. D’Adamo began his practice in New York and has also worked in London, Montreal, Antwerp, and Chihuahua, Mexico, treating over 50,000 patients, including many celebrities. He currently works at offices in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and Toronto, Canada, where he and his team of naturopathic specialists provide the most comprehensive natural health care in North America.
