Eat to Beat Disease

The New Science of How the Body Can Heal Itself

Is Your Diet Feeding or Defeating Disease? 

EAT TO BEAT DISEASE The New Science of How the Body Can Heal Itself empowers readers by showing them the evidence behind over two hundred health-boosting foods that can stave off cancer, reduce your risk of dementia, and beat dozens of avoidable diseases. EAT TO BEAT isn’t a book about what foods to avoid, but rather a life-changing guide to the hundreds of healing foods to add to your meals that support the body’s defense systems, including: Red Delicious apples, plums, cinnamon, jasmine tea, black beans, olive oil, red wine and beer, Pacific oysters, sourdough bread, and hard cheeses like Jarlsberg and cheddar.

This book is for you if…

  • You are a wellness warrior in charge of disease-proofing yourself and your loved ones.
  • You are starting to feel your age, and you want to maintain youth and stave off chronic diseases.
  • You are living with a chronic condition such as heart disease, diabetes or an autoimmune condition.
  • You are battling a disease like cancer or Alzheimer’s, or your family history puts you at higher risk of disease down the line.
