NOTE: The author has discontinued this book, and recommends his newer book, "Primal Nutrition: Paleolithic And Ancestral Diets For Optimal Health."
Modern medicine now recognizes that the present-day Western diet as a cause is responsible for many of today’s chronic illnesses. Nutritionists and anthropologists have noted the decline in health that accompanies indigenous peoples’transition from traditional to modern diets. In Traditional Foods Are Your Best Medicine, Ron Schmid explains how a return to a traditional diet can help reduce the risk of heart attack by 50 percent; fight allergies, chronic fatigue, arthritis, skin problems, and headaches; recover from colds and flu in a day or two and increase life expectancy. Chapters focusing on the major food groups, common diets, and health goals enable you to meet your unique needs.
