Overview

Eat. Drink. Detox. Breathe. Neutralize. Good health is that simple.

In this groundbreaking health-and-lifestyle guide, nutritionist and superfoods expert Darin Olien provides the keys to understanding and utilizing five life forces—Quality Nutrition, Hydration, Detoxification, Oxygenation, and Alkalization—the factors that determine whether we will be healthy, fit, and free of illness.

Olien has traveled the world, exploring the health properties of foods that have sustained indigenous cultures for centuries. Putting his research into practice, he tells how to maintain healthy weight, prevent even the most serious of diseases, and feel great—all without restrictive or gimmicky diet plans that never work in the long term.

All too often we take note of our health only when something goes wrong. Daily aches and pains are deemed normal—a headache here and there, a sore back, occasional heartburn. But when a diagnosis comes, we are taken by surprise. However, these little complaints, Olien argues, shouldn't be taken lightly—they are signals of underlying problems, and when we ignore them, we invite disease.

With a comprehensive, holistic, and unique approach to wellness, Olien teaches us how to harness the superpowers of food, water, oxygen, and pH balance. In doing so, he smashes common myths about nutrition. Included in the book are an indispensable "How to Eat" user's guide with a shopping list, a balanced diet plan, and advice on what to throw away and on supplementing effectively, to get us started on the way to the best health of our lives.
