DESCRIPTION BOOK:

I have written this book, because in order for a person to eat healthy and live in health, they need to be educated about how to eat healthy and how the body functions and operates with proper and balanced nutrition. It is evident that the countless "diet" books out there today are not educating the person, but only confusing the person more about nutrition. Thus, the rise in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and the myriad of other health problems.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The quantity and quality of the hair are closely related to the nutritional state of an individual. And yet, there is hardly another field with so much prejudice, misconception, and debate as diet and health, let alone hair health. Pharmacy aisles and Internet drugstores are full of nutritional supplements promising full, thick, luscious hair for prices that range from suspiciously cheap to dishearteningly exorbitant. Since there lies an important commercial interest in the nutritional value of various nutritional supplements, a central question that arises is whether increasing the content of an already adequate diet with nutrients may further promote hair growth and quality. This book aims at distinguishing facts from fiction, and at providing a sound scientific basis for nutrition-based strategies for healthy hair, at the same time acknowledging the problems and limitations of our current understanding and practice.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER What happens when you eat an apple? The answer is vastly more complex than you imagine. Every apple contains thousands of antioxidants whose names, beyond a few like vitamin C, are unfamiliar to us, and each of these powerful chemicals has the potential to play an important role in supporting our health. They impact thousands upon thousands of metabolic reactions inside the human body. But calculating the specific influence of each of these chemicals isn't nearly sufficient to explain the effect of the apple as a whole. Because almost every chemical can affect every other chemical, there is an almost infinite number of possible biological consequences. And that's just from an apple. Nutritional science, long stuck in a reductionist mindset, is at the cusp of a revolution. The traditional “gold standard" of nutrition research has been to study one chemical at a time in an attempt to determine its particular impact on the human body. These sorts of studies are helpful to food companies trying to prove there is a chemical in milk or pre-packaged dinners that is “good" for us, but they provide little insight into the complexity of what actually happens in our bodies or how those chemicals contribute to our health. In The China Study, T. Colin Campbell (alongside his son, Thomas M. Campbell) revolutionized the way we think about our food with the evidence that a whole food, plant-based diet is the healthiest way to eat. Now, in Whole, he explains the science behind that evidence, the ways our current scientific paradigm ignores the fascinating complexity of the human body, and why, if we have such overwhelming evidence that everything we think we know about nutrition is wrong, our eating habits haven't changed. Whole is an eye-opening, paradigm-changing journey through cutting-edge thinking on nutrition, a scientific tour de force with powerful implications for our health and for our world.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A hands-on guide to the vibrational signatures of the food we eat and how they affect our behaviors, emotions, and spirit • Details the energetic and spiritual qualities of more than 400 common foods, revealing how each affects you on multiple levels, how a food’s color plays a role, which chakra it resonates with, and how to interpret cravings and aversions • Explains how to use your diet to fine-tune your energetic body, remove negative energy patterns, and consciously craft a positive state for body, mind, and soul • Includes a selection of recipes with their energetic interpretations • Provides exercises to help you identify the vibrational meaning of your current diet and deepen your relationship with the food you eat Most of us are familiar with the physical health benefits of fruits, vegetables, meats, herbs, and spices and their nutritional effects on the human body. It is well known, for example, that turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory and carrots significantly improve eyesight, but what about the vibrational benefits of foods? How does our diet affect the energy body and our emotional, mental, and spiritual states? In this comprehensive guide to vibrational nutrition, Candice Covington explores the vibrational signatures of the foods we eat and how they help form the energetic structures that influence our behaviors and spirit. She explains how, by choosing foods that resonate with your natural vibrational patterns, you can use your diet to fine-tune your energetic body, remove negative energy patterns, and consciously craft a positive state for body, mind, and soul. She details the energetic and spiritual qualities of more than 400 common foods, drinks, and seasonings, including a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, nuts, eggs, mushrooms, grains, seafood, poultry, other proteins, tea, wine, and both cooking herbs and medicinal herbs. She explores how each food affects you on multiple levels, how a food’s color determines which chakra it resonates with and how to work with dreams to decode the divine role of foods in your life. The author explains how to interpret food cravings and aversions on an emotional and spiritual level and provides exercises to help you identify the vibrational meaning of your current diet. Offering a selection of recipes along with interpretations of their energetic stories, Covington explores how to intuitively select foods and food combinations to reinforce your energy patterns, support you in any endeavor, and provide nutrition for body, mind, and spirit.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Nutrition in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease, Fourth Edition, is a compilation of current knowledge in clinical nutrition and an overview of the rationale and science base of its application to practice in the prevention and treatment of disease. In its fourth edition, this text continues the tradition of incorporating new discoveries and methods related to this important area of research Generating and analyzing data that summarize dietary intake and its association with disease are valuable tasks in treating disease and developing disease prevention strategies. Well-founded medical nutrition therapies can minimize disease development and related complications.

Two new chapters on metabolomics and translational research, which have come to be used in nutrition research in recent years. The new areas of study are discussed with the perspective that the application of the scientific method is by definition an evolutionary process. A new chapter on Genetics and Diabetes which reviews the latest research on causal genetic variants and biological mechanisms responsible for the disease, and explores potential interactions with environmental factors such as diet and lifestyle. Includes all major "omics" – the exposome, metabolomics, genomics, and the gut microbiome. Expands the microbiota portions to reflect complexity of diet on gut microbial ecology, metabolism and health
