Investigate the fundamental paradigm of Western medicine—its strength in the treatment of symptoms and its relative deemphasis on illness prevention and long-term health concerns. In contrast, consider an approach to healthcare focusing on the whole human being, integrating the elements of your environment, genes, lifestyle, nutrition, and mental/psychological makeup.
Nutrition Made Clear is an invitation to a journey to wellness—an inspirational, practical, hands-on guide to understanding the science of nutrition and how what we eat and drink affects our bodies and our lives.
We begin with a revealing study of why we eat what we do and how we gather information about nutrition. We then take an in-depth look at the core of our body—our digestive tract. We continue with a detailed review of the essential building blocks of diet and nutrition—protein, carbohydrates, fat, water, fiber, vitamins, and minerals—learning about their critical roles in a healthy diet.
