Description
A member of both the British Naturopathic Association and the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, nutritionist Kirsten Hartvig explains here how to lift your spirits and gently restore balance to your mind and body with tasty recipes designed to enhance your body's natural defenses.

"This mine of information contains not only a comprehensive listing of 150 key superfoods we should be eating, each with a checklist of the vitamins, minerals, other nutrients and special properties contained within, but also suggests 180 tempting ways to use these ingredients—a welcome addition, given that some of them may be unfamiliar. Hearty main courses such as Sweet Potato and French Onion Tart are suggested, alongside Raspberry Gateau and a mouth-watering selection of juices. However, as befitting a medical herbalist and accredited naturopath, the author has provided her own twist to the subject, with sections on a range of common ailments, from the minor, such as ear, nose and throat infections, to more serious, such as HIV and cancer. She does not suggest that nutrition is a cure-all, but suggests that some contribution to preventing or managing many of these conditions can be made by eating the right food. There are plenty of books around of this nature ... but Hartvig strikes the right note, somewhere between authoritative and inspirational, and her advice certainly seems spot on."—Kirkus UK
