It is clear and scientific, with many examples of health restored by following these simple guidelines.
There are many ways to regaining or maintaining health. This chapter discusses healing - naturally and without medication - by NOT EATING certain foods... and replacing these with food that will nourish the body, and not burden it.
In the civilized Western world, many have forgotten and are confused on what is "real" food. Western civilization has brought us many new inventions. Among all the changes humanity has achieved, technology and modern medicine are leading, in ambiguity. There are always two sides.
The processing of the food, the changes in agriculture, the adding of sugar to most every processed food, the fast food chains bringing larger and larger portions of meet, cheese processed white flour and sugar to the customer (us)... Deprived of any nutrients or fiber...
We have become a culture of "more is better"... and in the process we have forgotten what "real" food is.
Medicine's greatest challenges now, are diseases related to obesity, heart disease, diabetes and cancer... these are all diet related and can be prevented or cured by eating nutritious food... and keeping away from those which are not.
I often hear:
Is everything bad for us?
It's confusing and frustrating - because with all the forbidden... there's nothing left we can EAT... there's nothing left that is good to eat.
I am happy to report that it isn't so!
It is important to understand some facts on 'How' foods affect our body...
Here, the health benefits of NOT eating certain foods are discussed.
We can get informed, and not just for ourselves... for the sake of your children!

* Sugar - Sugar addiction
'Death by sugar may not be an overstatement — evidence is mounting that sugar is THE MAJOR FACTOR causing obesity and chronic disease.' - Robert H. Lustig
You will also find some very valuable information on The-healthy-diet-paradise.com: 'No Sugar Diet'
* Dairy Products
Lactose intolerance, also called lactase deficiency, is the inability to digest and metabolize lactose, a sugar found in milk. It is caused by a lack of the enzyme lactase in the digestive system, required to break down lactose.
Improve your general well-being and heal from symptoms including abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence, diarrhea, nausea, and acid re-flux are the result by reducing drastically or completely abstaining from dairy products.
Healthy 'substitutes' such as almond or rice milk can easily made in your own kitchen.
* Dangers of Eating Meat
Meat consumption has conclusively been linked to obesity, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and many other chronic and deadly diseases.
