Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride—author of Gut and Psychology Syndrome and creator of the GAPS healing protocol—is back with two more deeply researched and thoughtfully written books exploring the intersection between food and health:
Vegetarianism Explained – An essential read for anyone following (or considering) a plant based diet. Dr. Campbell-McBride turns her focus to the value of plant vs. animal foods and how well they each impact our digestion and overall well being. In her quest to help us understand how to feed the body to sustain optimal vitality, she offers a detailed comparison of the health benefits of vegetarian, vegan, and omnivore diets. Other topics include the best fasting methods for healing and health, how to eat in harmony with your body’s needs, and how to introduce young children to the wonderful world of nutritious food.
What we eat is one of the most important decisions we make, so inform yourself with science rather than myths. Vegetarianism Explained will help you connect your lifestyle choices with how well you do (or don’t) nourish your body.
Put Your Heart in Your Mouth – An explanation of the true cause of heart disease, as well as how to prevent it and reverse it. Most people think they know how to avoid coronary heart disease (CHD): just stay away from butter, eggs, meat, and fat as much as possible. But is this truth or myth? This question is at the very heart of Put Your Heart in Your Mouth. How we think of heart disease goes all the way back to 1953, when the Diet-Heart Hypotheses was first proposed. By the time scientists all over the world had proved it wrong, the theory had already been widely accepted as fact. And even to this day, an array of political, marketing, and commercial forces share a vested interest in keeping it this way.
Now Dr. Campbell-McBride delivers a death blow to the myth of the Diet-Heart Hypothesis. Put Your Heart Where Your Mouth shares the truth that cholesterol is not the enemy but an integral and important part of our cell membranes. So if you’re worried about cholesterol, read this book. Then go ahead and eat your eggs. (Pasture raised, of course.)
