In this newly updated edition, you’ll find:

*More than 100 health condition entries from arthritis to insomnia to heart disease, with quick tips on what to eat to prevent or treat each ailment naturally

*More than 170 food entries from apples to zucchini, plus simple ways to eat, cook, and store each food to maximize its healing potential

*More than 50 delicious and easy-to-make recipes featuring the healing foods
