Healing with Clinical Nutrition is an authoritative guide to clinical nutrition for the naturopathic, conventional, and integrative student and practitioner. Based on current research and evidence-based practices. Healing with Clinical Nutrition has become a standard reference text in medical libraries, adopted and recommended for course work at several medical colleges and health science programs.
This book diagnosis the dangers of our modern low-fiber and high-carbohydrate diet, while prescribing an optimum diet of nutrient-rich food and nutritional supplements for better health. The authors identify the nutrient deficiencies and dependencies caused by our junk-food diet that have resulted in public malnutrition and serious dietary diseases. They recommend a diet that is whole, alive, fresh, and varied, rather than processed, dead, stale, and monotonous, and provide appropriate evidence-based vitamin, mineral, essential fatty acid, and amino acid therapy programs.
