Healing Power of Foods: Natures Prescriptions for Common Diseases

Sunita Pant Bansal (Author)
Synopsis Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, recognized that medical therapy must be consistent with the nature and design of the human body. He believed that effective health care could not be separated from nutrition. He stressed prevention of disease by strongly recommending a balanced diet with a moderate and sensible life style. Hippocrates wrote, "Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease… Everything in excess in opposed to nature… To do nothing is sometimes a good remedy". His philosophy was very much akin to the holistic health perspective of today.

Various foods not only provide nutrition for our body, but can prove to be medicinal too. Healing Power of Foods introduces all the main food groups to the reader, giving details about the medicinal uses of the commonly used foods. The tips given are simple, practical and effective. Healthy recipes at the end of the book complete the role of various foods in providing nutritional and medicinal benefits.
