We’re commonly told
‘You are what you eat.’
But just because you eat something, doesn’t mean
you digest it.
And unfortunately, research indicates many of us are not digesting very well.
Bloating, gas, headaches, fatigue … food sensitivities, diarrhea … asthma, arthritis, skin problems – a growing number of conditions are being linked to improper digestion. And up until now, our focus has been on changing what we eat.
In a fascinating blend of the latest medical science along with powerful ancient techniques, You Are NOT What You Eat offers a fresh approach – a clear roadmap for changing HOW we eat: 7 Simple Steps that can lead you to more energy, vibrant health, and the ability to eat anything you want again by enhancing one of your body’s most vital functions – digestion.

“An eating ‘primer’ which is very much overdue …
large on salient essentials and short on long-winded
distractions. It gets to the point and sticks to a lean
discussion. A sad fact emerges … in this age of information,
we need to be reminded of the health secrets
taught by the ancient physicians.”
