| ||Everyday, scientific evidence emerges linking nutrition with good health. Now the most comprehensive health and nutrition information is available in a single volume by Dr. Elson Haas, M.D., founder and director of the Preventive Medical Center of Marin in San Rafael, California, one of the leading integrated healthcare facilities in the country.
When the first edition of this authoritative classic was published more than a decade ago, Staying Healthy with Nutrition was an immediate success and sold more than 100,000 copies. An unparalleled one-stop encyclopedic volume, this hefty tome was hailed as one of the most comprehensive manuals in existence on health, diet, detox, and preventive care.
The definitive resource to optimal wellness and vitality, the latest edition of this groundbreaking work has been vastly updated and revised. Featuring expanded chapters on special supplements, lifestyle issues, seasonal menu plans and recipes, as well as medical treatment programs for fatigue, viral illnesses, and weight management, Staying Healthy with Nutrition is the only handbook anyone will need for nutritional health, longevity, and overall well-being.
Dr. Haas also authored The New Detox Diet and Staying Healthy with the Seasons, both popular top sellers and available from Celestial Arts. Buck Levin, Ph.D., R.D., is an adjunct associate professor of nutrition at Bastyr University, where he has taught since 1990.
Dr. Haas and Levin compile an exhaustive collection of data, and organizes it into an indispensable reference guide. In Part I, you�ll find a detailed analysis of the building blocks of nutrition: protein, fat, vitamins, amino acids and more; Part II evaluates foods and diets from around the world; Part III brings all this nutritional information together to help readers create an individualized Ideal Diet, including seasonal recipes; and in Part IV you�ll find special diets and supplement programs for people with specific needs: performance enhancement, life stages, medical treatment, and detoxification and healing programs. It�s all tied in with Haas� gentle, spiritual philosophy.
