The Essential Nutrition Guide for Boosting Your Body’s Defenses to Live Longer, Stronger, and Disease Free
by Joel Fuhrman, M.D.
Why do some of us get sick with greater frequency than others?
What makes us more susceptible to illness?
Are we doomed to get sick when our coworkers and family members do?
Is there a secret to staying healthy?
Joel Fuhrman, M.D., offers a comprehensive guide to superior health. Based on the latest scientific research, Super Immunity shows us how we can become almost totally resistant to colds, influenza, and other infections. The evidence is overwhelming: we can supercharge our immune system to protect our bodies against disease – everything from the common cold to cancer. Nutritional science has made phenomenal strides and discoveries in recent years, and when this new research is applied it enables us to seize control of our health like never before. Dr. Fuhrman explains this new science, providing everything you need to know to put this knowledge into action in your kitchen and in your life.
The book offers a wealth of information for anyone wanting to reduce his or her risk against disease. It includes a list of the top super foods for super immunity, a two-week daily menu planner and eighty-five delicious recipes. It also contains practical information on important subjects such as omega-3 fatty acids, protein, salt, carbohydrates, antibiotics, multivitamins, coffee, pesticides and much more. One of my favorite recommendations is Dr. Fuhrman’s list of five simple rules for a powerful immune system – and the five deadliest foods to avoid. He makes it easy for us to understand exactly what we need to do!
Did you know that green vegetables are almost 50 percent protein, and when you eat more vegetables, it gives you your protein in a super immunity and anticancer package? According to Dr. Fuhrman, “Animal protein – even egg whites and lean white meat – is not longevity-favorable and that our society’s obsession with overconsuming protein is at the root of our epidemic of cancer.”
Super Immunity shows us by changing our diets and combining foods that contain powerful immune-strengthening capabilities, we can prevent most common modern diseases. Combining the latest data from clinical tests, nutritional research, and results from thousands of patients, Dr. Fuhrman proves that super immunity exists and is well within reach for those who choose it. Included in the book are also personal success stories from some of Dr. Fuhrman’s patients.
Super Immunity shows us how we can live healthier, stronger, and longer than ever before and, as the cover plainly states: no shots – no drugs – no sick days!
“No matter where your health is today, you can improve it. When we make the right choices, we can live better and healthier. Do not be complacent with doing what other people do. Do not be complacent with taking medications for the rest of your life. You can recover. Your body has an amazing healing potential waiting to be unleashed by the gift of super nutrition.” Joel Fuhrman, M.D.
