Eat your vegetables, fruit and your fermented foods
December 31, 2018
Although the book does explain how angiogenesis works, and how the microbiome is very important to overall health, the gist of the book is to eat more vegetables, fruits, and fermented foods. He recommends to do this 5 times daily and your body will have the tools it needs to repair itself.
What if you cannot eat fermented foods? I have a dairy allergy AND a mold allergy, so that leaves me out for healing my SIBO (bacterial overgrowth), which he does not even mention. Nor can I cure my food allergies, my thyroid or my insulin resistance. I cannot drink wine without getting a headache, same with chocolate. And a zillion books on Amazon state to eat a more plant-based diet, less sugar and less meat. To quote him, “There is a way to boost our own defense systems so the body will heal itself”, yet he also says “There is no silver bullet for any one disease”.
I started with the Nourishing Traditions book over 20 years ago so none of the advice was new to me. I did find the angiogenesis section interesting, but he says if you are on a Paleo diet or a Keto diet, just include more healthy foods from the list which is mostly plant-based.
