Nature's Gift of Food

Your food is your medicine and your medicine your food. So said Hippocrates, the father of medicine – but nothing could sum up Jan de Vries’ approach to dietary management better. Over the past 35 years the number of people seeking his advice on food-related problems has increased dramatically, for although there are numerous books available on the subject, the information they contain is often contradictory and confusing – not surprisingly, maybe, when there are over 4,000 addictives finding their way into our food everyday. But wholesome eating is, in fact, very simple and you only need the sensible guidance contained in this book. The results speak for themselves. A balanced diet produces a noticeable increase in energy levels fairl quickly. Nutrition is a subject close to Jan de Vries’ heart and his enthusiasm is evident in this latest book. Easy to read and easy to follow, it is a dietary plan for every household.
