Offering practical information and grounded in modern science, Healing Foods is an engaging reference guide and source of inspiration for readers hoping to develop eating habits that lead to better health. It takes readers beyond mere nutritional facts and shares cutting-edge research and clinical discoveries on what and how foods stimulate the body’s natural ability to rejuvenate and heal.
Users can search by food type/product, as well as by disease/condition:
* Each entry contains a description of the food and its healing benefits, as well as tips for storing and preparing, and quick serving ideas.
* Based on the theory that many common ailments respond quite well to diet therapy, users can search for the conditions they suffer from to learn which foods are particularly healing for their needs.
Healing Foods app takes the comprehensive information and guidance of the bestselling book The Encyclopedia of Healing Foods and distills it down to the key facts and bullet points that every health-conscious individual will want to know. Think of it as the essential guide to a healthier diet—and now in app form, you can always carry it with you!
I have had the book for years and think this app highlights the important info from the food and ailment info in the book thoroughly in app format. But as an owner of a well used copy of the book, I would like to request that the vitamin, mineral and amino acid functions with their food sources be added to the app. I would pay more if more of this highly informative book was covered in the app. However, this app is definitely worth buying as it is.
Great and useful app
I bought this app a few days ago and cannot stop using it. Every food I eat, I look up in the app to see how the food benefits me. I have also always had a problem with eczema and looked it up in the ailments section of the app. I now know to eat more salmon and take an omega-3 supplement. Highly recommend the app to everyone who is interested in their health!
As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist I highly recommend this app and have referred clients to it as well. Written by a respected naturopathic doctor, Healthy Foods allows users to search by food type as well as by disease/condition. It contains a description of the food and its helping benefits as well as tips on serving ideas and storage. Great app!
