The fourfold approach includes: Nutrition using nutrient-dense traditional foods; therapeutics through a wide range of nontoxic remedies; Movement to heal and strengthen the emotions; and medication to develop your powers of objective thought.
GUT AND PSYCHOLOGY SYNDROME
I want to let you know about a program I have been using in my practice as well as at home. For my patients who really want to improve their health and are ready to make some big changes I have been recommending the GAPS (Gut And Psychology Syndrome) program. This plan was originally geared toward helping people with depression, autism, anxiety, dyspraxia, schizophrenia, dyslexia, ADD and other mental issues. However, as more people started using the program it was found that it helped a whole lot of health issues. At this point many see it as an excellent program for healing up the intestines so you can absorb nutrients better and have better health no matter what your issues are.
EAT FAT, LOSE FAT
Based on more than two decades of research, Eat Fat, Lose Fat flouts conventional wisdom by revealing that so-called healthy vegetable oils (such as corn and soybean) are in large part responsible for our national obesity and health crisis, while the saturated fats traditionally considered “harmful” (from such foods as coconut, butter, and meat) are essential to weight loss and health.
Just in time for the FDA’s new mandatory trans fats labeling, the three programs in this book, which features delicious recipes, show that eating healthy fats is the answer to losing weight and achieving good health for a lifetime.
