Taryn Berris, The Netherlands, 1998
"The Self-Healing Cookbook is amazing! I worked for 6 years in a natural foods store in Florida, and saw many people who were told to make drastic changes in their eating habits, yet left their doctor's office with little information to help them ease into this new lifestyle. I did my best to help them--then I was blessed with this book!. . . "A customer brought it in--saying she felt like a good friend was speaking to her and supporting her as she cooked. I loved it! We ordered it that same day, and sold out of it within a week. We recommended it left and right for our customers. They invariably returned to share it with a friend--with absolutely wonderful feedback. This book is such a breath of fresh air--especially helpful for anyone feeling overwhelmed by dietary changes.

Cooking the Whole Foods Way: Your Complete Everyday Guide to Healthy Delicious Eating with 500 Recipes, Menus, Meal Planning Techniques
Christina Pirello

January 1997
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Christina Pirello turned to a whole-foods diet after being diagnosed with terminal leukemia at age 26. To the shock of her doctors, and without any medical treatment, she went into complete remission. She was surprised herself, as she'd been a vegetarian for more than 10 years and wasn't convinced that cutting prepackaged foods, sugar, and dairy from her diet would make that much of a difference to her health.

Pirello says, "Macrobiotics is an understanding that that food is energy, that everything we eat becomes part of us and helps create who we become." With this philosophy in mind, she advises how to plan menus, shop for quality ingredients, and combine foods for optimum energy. She then jumps right into her collection of more than 500 recipes, among them Fresh Corn Chowder, Béchamel Sauce, and Chocolate Hazelnut...



The Vegetarian Handbook

(Paperback) - Revised Ed.

Book Description
Many patients that I see in my medical nutrition practice request specific detailed information in order to move toward a vegetarian lifestyle. Here is a book that will guide them along such a path. It will also assist current vegetarians to reach a new level of understanding by offering specific instruction for improving food habits. The instruction includes the most up-to-date and scientific data regarding food protein. By using the egg as a model of the near perfect protein source and comparing vegetarian foods with the egg, we now have available tools for increasing the benefits of protein from non-meat sources.

"Patients with certain medical problems should consider removing red meat and other animal proteins from their diet and moving toward vegetarian food sources. Some of these medical problems...

A New Way of Eating from the Fit for Life Kitchen

February 1, 1987
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Useful as a companion volume to Harvey and Marilyn Diamond's Fit for Life ( LJ 6/15/85), and offering the same theory of nutrition, this is a revised edition of The Common Sense Guide to a New Way of Eating (Golden Glow, 1979). As in Fit for Life the emphasis is on the consumption of high water-content foods (raw fruits and vegetables), and proper food combining as an aid to satisfactory digestion. All of the recipes are fairly simple, as might be expected when the emphasis is on raw foods. Recipes for soups and cooked vegetables and grains are also included. While this program is not a scientifically proven theory of nutrition, the author (and her husband) are extremely popular and well publicized so there will probably be requests for this book.Susan E. Holmer, Peninsula Lib. System, San Mateo, Cal.Copyright 1987...


You Are All Sanpaku
Sakurazawa Nyoiti
0806507284
Sept 1983
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This book introduced two new words into our vocabulary. The first, a well-known Japanese term, sanpaku, describes a condition in which the white of the eye can be seen between the pupil and the lower lid as the subject gazes directly forward. This, we quickly learn, connotes a grave state of physical and spiritual imbalance. The sanpaku is out of touch with himself, his body and the natural forces of the universe. Symptomatically, sanpaku can be recognized by chronic fatigue, low sexual vitality, poor instinctive reactions, bad humor, inability to sleep soundly and lack of precision in thought and action. Macrobiotics, our second term (and one which quickly became part of the English language) is the simple, natural means of correcting the dangerous sanpaku condition and creating a state of health, harmony and...

Review
"One case does not prove a theory, but my own favorable experience with macrobiotics opened my eyes to the accumulating evidence that a whole-grain, leafy vegetable, and bean diet can often prevent, arrest, and even reverse deadly degenerative diseases such as cancers, coronary heart attacks, and strokes. All Americans should get their eyes opened by reading Kushi's Cancer Prevention Diet."--Benjamin Spock, M.D.

"I have prescribed Michio Kushi's dietary approach for everything from uterine fibroid tumors to menopausal symptoms-- with great success. I eagerly await the day when people don't wait until they have cancer to start eating this way."--Christiane Northrup, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.

"This is a powerful anticancer prescription, and one that I heartily recommend."--Neal D. Barnard, M.D., President, Physicians...
