Natural Foods and Recipes describes how these same lifestyle changes can help empower and address the needs of your body to live a healthy and long life. I found that the more you change your lifestyle, and the more things you change, the better you feel and the healthier you become. And the better you feel, the easier it is to maintain these changes. Sustainable changes are based on joy, pleasure, and freedom, not deprivation and austerity. It’s not just about preventing illness or living longer; it’s about living better.
When you eat and live healthier, your brain gets more blood so you think more clearly, have more energy, and need less sleep. You can even grow so many new brain cells that your brain can get measurably bigger in just a few months! Your skin gets more blood so you wrinkle less and look younger.
People tend to think of breakthroughs in medicine as a new drug, laser, or high-tech surgical procedure. They often have a hard time understanding that the simple choices we make in our lifestyle— what we eat, how we respond to stress, whether or not we smoke, how much exercise we get, and the quality of our relationships and social support—can be as powerful as drugs and surgery, but they often are. Often, even better.
Although it’s understandable that many people feel more bewildered than ever when they hear seemingly contradictory advice about different diets, there is actually a convergence of recommendations that is evolving. Some significant differences remain, but there is an emerging consensus among nutrition experts about what constitutes a healthy way of eating and living. It looks a lot like what you find in this book. What you include in your diet is as important as what you exclude. There are at least 100,000 substances in foods that have powerful anticancer, anti–heart disease, and anti-aging properties. These include phytochemicals, bioflavonoids, carotenoids, retinols, isoflavones, genistein, lycopene, polyphenols, and so on. Where do you find these potent substances? I had shown integrated medicinal approaches may stop or even reverse the progression of coronary heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, hypercholesterolemia, and other chronic conditions.
The recipes in this book are high in these protective substances.
