Anxiety, asthma, dementia, depression, diabetes, emphysema, MS, Parkinson’s disease . . . the latest scientific research is showing plant-based diets can reduce risks or better manage chronic diseases—and more. Food as Medicine is more than a cookbook, it is a blueprint for eating your way to good health. Featuring 150 plant-based recipes developed for their health-promoting properties, as well as their amazing taste appeal, it guides users toward safer cooking methods (reducing the formation of toxic chemicals), showcases everyday medicinal ingredients, and reveals how to set up a wellness kitchen to make it easier to eat well at home. Each recipe includes a “per serving” nutritional analysis, as well as descriptions of interesting health-promoting effects to motivate better food choices. Sue Radd has long known what the rest of us are finally catching onto: it’s possible to eat for both pleasure and longevity. Food as Medicine shows us how to put into practice the latest medical research findings by cooking meals the whole family can enjoy. Sue’s recipes are not only beneficial for your health, they are delicious and designed for the home cook. This long-awaited book shares secrets from her acclaimed culinary medicine cookshops. As well as a health professional and scientist, Sue Radd is a food-lover and cook, with a lifelong interest in discovering simple and healthy recipe ideas from all over the world. Her culinary research has taken her to countries whose traditional diets have been associated with reduced chronic disease risks, from the Mediterranean—think Greece, Spain, Italy, Croatia, and Lebanon—to Asia (including China, Vietnam, South Korea, and India). Partnered with her professional interest in reviewing hundreds of scientific research papers, these experiences have confirmed the benefits of eating more unrefined plant-based meals as was common in olden days, when people mostly cooked what could they could grow in their garden.

"Food as medicine" is a powerful approach to health and healing, intimately woven into naturopathic medical education. Dr. Jackson and Dr. Briley remind us that poor dietary choices are a major element in the exploding issues of chronic disease. What nutrients does the body need for healthy functioning? What foods have these nutrients? When shopping for these foods and preparing them, what strategies are helpful? What is a balanced meal? There are invaluable sections on how to read food labels, on healthy snacks for kids and strategies for converting kids' unhealthy eating patterns. Mealtime is tasty and uncomplicated with the wonderful recipes provided. Designed for families, the authors are family guides themselves, each with young children and busy professional lives. Food As Medicine Everyday: Reclaim Your Health With Whole Foods is thoroughly researched, beautifully written and elegantly illustrated while serving up a winning combination of information and practical application for the busy modern family. "Drs. Julie Briley and Courtney Jackson have filled an enormous gap in the field of medical nutrition. They offer for the first time a well documented, but easy-to-read, pathway to healthy eating that can be trusted by everyone." --Kent Thornburg, PhD, Director, Bob and Charlee Moore Institute of Nutrition and Wellness, Oregon Health & Science University "Drs. Briley and Jackson make critically needed connections between food choices and the real world dangers of illness that will provoke both thought and lifestyle changes. Their simple to follow and effective eating plan, including recipes, makes sense for anyone. Health seekers will treasure this delightful book, because it offers a compelling avenue for improved vigor and vitality." --Jessica Black, ND, Author of The Anti-Inflammation Diet and Recipe Book and The Freedom Diet. "We have lost our way when it comes to the basic need of feeding ourselves and our families. We are inundated with conflicting advice about what we should and should not eat. Now, we have a source of solid information that helps us understand how to eat and its impact on our health. Read this book to learn how to bring real food back into your life in a delicious way." --Chef Alphonso Rosas, CCP, The Organic Chef (TM) "Food As Medicine Everyday complements the theory of inflammation which is the basic mechanism that triggers our most urgent health threats: heart attack and stroke. The best way to treat cardiovascular disease is to prevent it by taking ownership of our health through disciplined lifestyle choices. Thank you Dr. Jackson and Dr. Briley for providing elegant education and credible insight with helpful tools for making healthy choices." --Tracy Stevens, MD, Cardiologist, Saint Luke's Mid America Heart Institute Medical Director of Muriel I. Kauffman Women's Heart Center "Food As Medicine Everyday is not a diet book, but a clearly written guide to improve well-being by making healthy lifestyle choices. This phenomenal tool provides strategies needed for a balanced approach to eating. Everyone should read this. The evidence is clear--food and nutrition significantly impact our health." --Andrew Erlandsen, ND, Chair, Graduate Nutrition Program, NUNM "

Food Isn t Medicine

Losing weight is not your life's purpose. Do carbs make you fat? Could the keto diet cure mental health disorders? Are eggs as bad for you as smoking? No, no and absolutely not. It's all what Dr Joshua Wolrich defines as 'nutribollocks' and he is on a mission to set the record straight. As an NHS doctor with personal experience of how damaging diets can be, he believes every one of us deserves to have a happy, healthy relationship with food and with our bodies. His message is clear: we need to fight weight stigma, call out the lies of diet culture and give ourselves permission to eat all foods. Food Isn't Medicine wades through nutritional science (both good and bad) to demystify the common diet myths that many of us believe without questioning. If you have ever wondered whether you should stop eating sugar, try fasting, juicing or 'alkaline water', or struggled through diet after diet (none of which seem to work), this book will be a powerful wake-up call. Drawing on the latest research and delivered with a dose of humour, it not only liberates us from the destructive belief that weight defines health but also explains how to spot the misinformation we are bombarded with every day. Dr Joshua Wolrich will empower you to escape the diet trap and call out the bad health advice for what it really is: complete nutribollocks.

Discover neglected wild food sources—that can also be used as medicine! The long-standing notion of “food as medicine, medicine as food,” can be traced back to Hippocrates. Eating and Healing: Traditional Food As Medicine is a global overview of wild and semi-domesticated foods and their use as medicine in traditional societies. Important cultural information, along with extensive case studies, provides a clear, authoritative look at the many neglected food sources still being used around the world today. This book bridges the scientific disciplines of medicine, food science, human ecology, and environmental sciences with their ethno-scientific counterparts of ethnobotany, ethnoecology, and ethnomedicine to provide a valuable multidisciplinary resource for education and instruction. Eating and Healing: Traditional Food As Medicine presents respected researchers’ in-depth case studies on foods different cultures use as medicines and as remedies for nutritional deficiencies in diet. Comparisons of living conditions in different geographic areas as well as differences in diet and medicines are thoroughly discussed and empirically evaluated to provide scientific evidence of the many uses of these traditional foods as medicine and as functional foods. The case studies focus on the uses of plants, seaweed, mushrooms, and fish within their cultural contexts while showing the dietary and medical importance of these foods. The book provides comprehensive tables, extensive references, useful photographs, and helpful illustrations to provide clear scientific support as well as opportunities for further thought and study. Eating and Healing: Traditional Food As Medicine explores the ethnobiology of: Tibet—antioxidants as mediators of high-altitude nutritional physiology Northeast Thailand—“wild” food plant gathering Southern Italy—the consumption of wild plants by Albanians and Italians Northern Spain—medicinal digestive beverages United States—medicinal herb quality Commonwealth of Dominica—humoral medicine and food Cuba—promoting health through medicinal foods Brazil—medicinal uses of specific fishes Brazil—plants from the Amazon and Atlantic Forest Bolivian Andes—traditional food medicines New Patagonia—gathering of wild plant foods with medicinal uses Western Kenya—uses of traditional herbs among the Luo people South Cameroon—ethnomycology in Africa Morocco—food medicine and ethnopharmacology Eating and Healing: Traditional Food As Medicine is an essential research guide and educational text about food and medicine in traditional societies for educators, students from undergraduate through graduate levels, botanists, and research specialists in nutrition and food science, anthropology, agriculture, ethnoecology, ethnobotany, and ethnobiology.

Food Medicine and the Quest for Good Health

Drawing on medical texts and food therapy practices from around the world and throughout history, Nancy N. Chen locates old and new crossovers between food and medicine in different social and cultural contexts.

What we eat, how we eat, where we eat, and when we eat are deeply embedded cultural practices. Eating is also related to how we medicate. The multimillion-dollar diet industry offers advice on how to eat for a better body and longer life, and avoiding harmful foods (or choosing healthy ones) is considered separate from consuming medicine another multimillion-dollar industry. In contrast, most traditional medical systems view food as inseparable from medicine and regard medicinal foods as the front line of healing. Drawing on medical texts and food therapy practices from around the world and throughout history, Nancy N. Chen locates old and new crossovers between food and medicine in different social and cultural contexts. The consumption of spices, sugar, and salt was once linked to specific healing properties, and trade in these commodities transformed not just the political economy of Europe, Asia, and the New World but local tastes and food practices as well. Today's technologies are rapidly changing traditional attitudes toward food, enabling the cultivation of new admixtures, such as nutraceuticals and genetically modified food, that link food to medicine in novel ways. Chen considers these developments against the evolving food regimes of the diet industry in order to build a framework for understanding diet as individual practice, social prescription, and political formation.

Due to nuclear families and fast life the knowledge of healing the ailment from home is reducing. Everyone is ready to use readymade pop up pills from the market to treat their problem even knowing that they may get some bad effects. Secondly many of our patients are staying abroad and for them providing herbal medicines instantly is not possible, we try to help them by providing such kind of remedies which help them till they reach their nearby health care professional or our herbal medicines reach them. - Dr. Jaskirat Kaur, Dr. Ritesh Chawla
