Unleash your greatest health potential through this revolutionary eating plan incorporating bioactive power foods!

In The Bitter Prescription, Dr. Stagg outlines the core elements for optimal health as we age: using bitter bioactive foods to improve digestion and metabolism, the bitter truth about how your dietary needs change with age, and how getting rid of bitter feelings will set you up for your greatest potential.

Armed with this knowledge, she provides you with a bioactive rich dietary plan that is not only an excellent source of nutrition, but also has the added bonus of helping you absorb more of those nutrients from your food and improve metabolism. As we get older, our digestive function and metabolism slows, making us more likely to suffer from deficiencies that can make our systems sluggish. What may have worked in our twenties seems to no longer benefit us. If you are eating well and not seeing results, this book is for you!

While most books and diet plans out there may do a good job of outlining a food plan, they lack the tools to make the program long-lasting and accentuate the latest fad diet. As food- and health-conscious individuals know, it is much easier to start a plan than it is to sustain it. In The Bitter Prescription, Dr. Stagg also maps out how to utilize mindset and emotional health to make these changes last a lifetime!
