Is there a secret to staying healthy?

Joel Fuhrman, M.D., a leading expert and board-certified medical specialist in prevention and reversing disease, offers a comprehensive guide to superior health.

Based on the latest scientific research, Super Immunity shows us how we can become almost totally resistant to colds, influenza, and other infections.

The evidence is overwhelming: we can supercharge our immune system to protect our bodies against disease—everything from the common cold to cancer. Nutritional science has made phenomenal strides and discoveries in recent years, and when this new research is applied it enables us to seize control of our health like never before. Dr. Fuhrman explains this new science, providing everything you need to know to put this knowledge into action in your kitchen and in your life.

What we eat has everything to do with our health, and, unfortunately, too many of us are living with a severely depleted immune function. Our dietary choices are making us sicker, shortening our lives, and costing us billions of dollars in doctor visits, hospital stays, and prescription medications. But Dr. Fuhrman doesn’t believe more medical care is the answer. Rather, he explains the solution is to change the way we eat. The standard American diet is nutrient deficient. We are eating too many highly processed foods, foods with added sweeteners, and animal fats and protein. At the same time, we are not eating enough fruits, beans, seeds, and vegetables, which leaves us lacking in hundreds of the most important immune-building compounds. By changing our diets and combining foods that contain powerful immune-strengthening capabilities, we can prevent most common modern diseases.

Combining the latest data from clinical tests, nutritional research, and results from thousands of patients, Dr. Fuhrman proves that super immunity exists and is well within reach for those who choose it. We all have the ability to live healthier, stronger, and longer than ever before. Isn’t it time you dis-covered super immunity?

    Get completely in the know !

    Dr. Joel Fuhrman has done it again! I received this book on the 22nd and read it word for word. If I had only one opportunity to pull someone out of the morass of misinformation that defines much of the advice out there I would be 100% confident that all bases were covered in this one book! With what has now been afforded us in the way of the science of food we can now make informed decisions about our own health. Self-care is incredible doable in this day and age when information such as is contained in this book is made available. Everyone should know the vital information presented. Collectively, as Americans, we have a responsibility to know. Do the right thing..Buy the book.
    morass: Something that hinders, engulfs, or overwhelms: a morass of details.

    give it a go

    I bought this as a 2012 Christmas gift for a friend who has Crohn's disease. Two weeks into 2013 and as of this afternoon she said she not only is shocked to experience her "GI working again" but is completely pain free. Fuhrman's Eat to Live was brought to my attention by a a friend who'd been diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma in 2004 - and is still alive and kicking. I follow Fuhrman to fight my family's predisposition to heart disease and am happy to report being extremely healthy in every way - and I'm looking forward to reading Super Immunity too.

    This IS the diet!

    This has to be the absolute best diet. It forces us to face up to the over processed foods in the traditional American diet causing so many health problems today. It takes some getting used to thats for sure. Dr. Fuhrman does include some short cuts to quick meals. Its difficult sometimes to buy some of the ingredients as most produce is seasonal. However it does get you shop on the outer perimeters in the fruit and vegetable section where the "real" food is and not where the commercial food is! A definite must read!!!!!
