Product description


Most people know the benefits of foods such a citrus fruit and green vegetables, but how many people know that lettuce makes a great night-time snack for insomniacs; that pineapple is an effective remedy for bruising; while a few brazil nuts will help protect you against heart disease and cancer? Most of our everyday foods can have a positive effect on the body - being mood-enhancing, cancer-protective, stress-releasing, energy-giving or cleansing. In 'The Healthy Food Directory' naturopath Michael van Straten shows how to harness the healing power of food, without extra expense, by having a more positive approach to the food you eat every day. - Natural groupings of food identified by coloured marginal tabs - Colour key identifies which food benefits which body system - Super Food boxes establish the supreme health-enhancers of the food world - Fast Food Aid boxes offer tips on using the larder for first-aid and other natural purposes - Illustrated throughout in full colour.
