This book was a real page turner for me, much more so than his original "Green Pharmacy" book on herbs. Who knew that ginger, garlic, chamomile, cinnamon, licorice, and turmeric had such potent healing powers? I'd love to see James Duke and his wife publish a "farm-aceuticals" cookbook!

I read this after reading The Green Pharmacy Guide to Healing Herbs, so there is a bit of redundancy in it, but it was very interesting to read how different foods have different ways of helping your body to heal. I was glad to see I was already eating what was recommended, but I still jotted down some notes for products to look into eating more of, etc.

I recommend this book to people who are interested in nutrition, healthly lifestlyes, etc. It was a good, easy, informative read.

I am really into herbs, but it is nice to know that diet can do so much before drugs or herbs or both have be turned to. Granted sometimes something extra beyond diet is needed to kickstart problems into retraction, but diet can take care of most of the rest and this books helps that to be reinforced for me.

Overall a good guide if you are into this sort of thing. One little quibble - it needs a better editor. A few spelling mistakes and a couple of other funny mistakes all which should have been caught show up. More of an encyclopedia or reference book, but I had no problems reading it cover to cover.

Recommends it for: everyone
Shelves: nonfiction, health
Ailments are listed in alphabetical order with foods that help alleviate and/or cure them. It's well organized, cross referenced, and visually appealing. Altogether, it's quite useful.
