The Epigenetics of Diet
The book about preventative medicine, nutrition and the dire consequences of the modern western diet. Like no other, this book teaches you how to eat foods that fuel the body to obtain and maintain optimal health, weight and body shape for life. Learn how to test all other foods to find those that *you* can eat without adverse reactions. Discover *your diet*.
This is not a typical "diet" book.
Discover the truth about what commonly recommended and popular foods really do to the human body.
Like no other, this book teaches you how to eat foods that fuel the body (Phase 1) to correct the 3 common imbalances that lead to excess body fat enabling you to obtain and maintain optimal health, weight and body shape for life (Phase 3). Learn how to test all other foods to find those that you can eat without adverse reactions, including weight gain, mood swings, depression, headache, lethargy, irritable bowel syndrome and the list goes on and on and on... (Phase 2).
Obesity, diabetes, cancer and many other diseases, conditions and symptoms are preventable by eating truly nutritious foods.
It is THE book of preventative medicine.
This book explains how our food and environment affect our emotions, bodies and behaviour and trigger genetic switches (which determine the diseases we get and affect our children). Learn how to use food to turn on desirable genetic switches (such as tumour suppression) and turn others off (such as diabetes or cancer). Do it for yourself - and do it for your family.
