In Healing Foods, author Dale Pinnock explains how the healing power of foods stretches beyond the realm of vitamins and minerals to involve a far more complex and wondrous group of biological compounds--phytochemicals! Pinnock shows readers how many of these compounds, when properly delivered, can work as well as medicinal plants and even pharmaceutical drugs without the risk of side effects. Pinnock explains how to prepare dishes that are not only delicious, but also possess a powerful medicinal property. Think classic carrot and ginger soup, digestive tonic tea, dandelion salad, and more! Complete with an A-Z guide to common medicinal foods, Healing Foods is your one-stop reference for remedying health woes through the power of food.
