-Eating Alive

Eating Alive 

Eating Alive by Jonn Matsen is one of those books that you pick up, read only the first few pages, and already your life has changed. The information in this book is well organized, easy to understand, and will change how you think about food forever. Eating Alive focuses on analyzing common ailments that stem from poor digestion and teaching you how to fix them by repairing your entire digestive system. This book has been around forever (As in 1987), and it’s easy to see why it’s been so popular. It’s a great read with fun illustrations on every page and should be mandatory for everyone before they’re allowed to step into a grocery store.

Allergies: Disease In Disguise

Allergies: Disease In Disguise is probably one of the most eye opening nutrition books I’ve read. This book delves into the reasons behind our allergic reactions, their relation to raw food and enzymes, our environment, and chemicals, and that any symptom or condition in the body can be an allergy. This book changed not only what I ate, but how I ate as well.

Food Matters TV is one of the best websites out there for awesome recipes, education, wellness guides, nutritional motivation, and a huge collection of the greatest health and wellness videos you’ll ever find. Many of the films require a membership to watch (10 day free trial), but the monthly fee is well worth it for what you’ll learn. The Food Matters film talks about the dangers of fast food, pharmaceutical drugs, and how people are getting sick because they’re eating the wrong things. To summarize, I love this website and I hope you do too!
