Overview

Prescription for Dietary Wellness explains how to incorporate healthy eating into any lifestyle, with specifics on what to eat and in what quantities in order to prevent disease and enjoy maximum energy. Phyllis Balch covers the basic workings of the immune system and how it responds to different foodstuffs: processed, packaged, adulterated, and even irradiated foods versus those that are fresh, nautral, wholesome, and simply prepared.

Balch explains the vital roles of vitamins and minerals in the body (and how processing food can destroy these beneficial substances), and describes specific actions that foods can take. For example, grapes can combat toxins, certain substances in figs can kill bacteria, and strawberries can protect against viruses anc cancer. After listing the various healthy foods and their benefits, she provides recipes that make it simple to incorporate these life-giving foods into a daily diet. All ingredients are readily in a supermarket or health food store. She then outlines healthy eating plans for both children and adults.

Readers wishing for a healthy life or to alleviate various disorders will find the answers they seek in the Prescription for Dietary Wellness. Eating healthy food is a preventative measure that is available to everyone, and Balch makes it wonderfully easy to understand and implement.
