|Jean Carper in her book, "Food: Your Miracle Medicine" is a must read for anyone for anyone interested in curing themself by natural means. By the addition of certain foods and diet changes, I have been able to ease migraine headaches, lower cholestol, eliminate heartburn, and improve digestion. 3 cheers for Jean Carper!|
|HANDY DO IT YOURSELF HEALING Jul 15, 2006|
|I enjoy New Age books that leave out the doctor. This one is|
perfect because it's so sensible. You can look up any problem
you have and find out the foods to rectify same, constipation,
arthritis, etc. There's no reason people should be obese in
this day and age. One should not live to eat but eat to live,
and this book proves that perfectly since food is necessary to
keep the body and brain and spirit in good working order. That
can only happen when you know what to eat. Excellent!

|Your body and you control what goes in your mouth. Your choice how you take care of it. Your great grandparents were pretty smart. Lived a long time and the doctor was never around nor was he needed.|
|One of the best FOOD books out there Oct 21, 2005|
Food: Your miracle medicine is yet another small paperback that's extremely afforable and packed to the brim with information. Sometimes the best things come in small packages; thankfully Carper's effort is no different.
Broken up into systems, such as cardiovascular and digestive, she covers the most basic of complaints with reasonable food and dietary suggestions. This isn't another one of those common sense guides just published to make a book, however, for there was plenty in here I didn't know, and that most people don't. An added bonus is much of this is backed by the latest research, amazing findings, and also personal experience. She has many guest quotes of experts throughout the text. Beyond that, it's very easy to understand, perfect for the beginner, and even perfect for nutritionists who just enjoy the journey of learning.
It all wraps up with food connections you should know about, such as the relationship findings between lupus and fish, a listing of calorie burning foods that promote healthy metabolism, and foods that stiffle the urge to cut the smoking habit. We even get a section on using drugs in foods to stay healthy, such as natural antibiotic sources, antidepressant, carminatives, etc.
While it may not be the ultimate nutritionist guide out there, the amazing effort to cram this much useful knowledge into such a small book is extraordinary. I see from the cover it was a New York Times best seller, and rightfully so. Great work here, something everyone needs to know, no matter where your interests lie. Not unrealistic or glitzy and glamrous, each section is backed up with enthusiasm, facts, and further resources for doing your own research.
Yet another affordable, small paperback back offers a wealth of knowledge. Food, your miracle medicine covers a huge amount - from the cardio system to diabetes. Thankfully she covers even the most serious topic, while including the more minor ones. Backed up with much research, studies, and theories, the text is fascinating, makes sense, and I'm sure works.
