Having recently done some research on health after some unforeseen circumstances, and after finding some noteworthy quotes in some books about optimal health, I thought it prudent to share the quotes I have collated overtime.

Most quotes are directly related to health, while others could be applied indirectly.

Book Review: Eat To Beat Disease – Food’s Medicinal Qualities by Catherine J. Frompovich

EBD

TheBreakAway
Zy Marquiez
August 22, 2016

Eat To Beat Disease – Food’s Medicinal Qualities by Catherine J. Frompovich is a phenomenal foray into the alternative side of health.  Specifically, the alternative side to medicinal properties of foods.

Although that statement might seem rather foreign to those who follow only mainstream health, in fact it’s not.  According to a recent article on NaturalNews, as much as 80% of the known world still uses ancient medicines made from Plants & Botanicals.  Sure, this book deals with food, but both this book and the article deal with natural medicine that the mainstream establishment doesn’t even acknowledge most of the time, if at all.

Eat To Beat Disease is a significant book that features an extensive and in-depth look into the pros and cons of many foods people have in their daily diets.

Speaking of toxins, Frompovich gets to the heart of the matter as she states:

“…there are literally thousands of toxic chemicals that legally can be – and are – placed into the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe.  Furthermore, even the U.S. Food and Drug Administration doesn’t know what some of those chemicals are thanks to the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 loopholes!”[1][xxvi]

Such is the nature of the beast we as a society face.

In fact, Frompovich goes out of her way to show a rather intriguing, if troubling timeline of the extensive poisoning that our supply has been under for nigh 150 years [if not longer].  This is helpful because it speaks at length of the issue of our deteriorating soil and the fact that vitamins and minerals are being depleted from the soul due to the events discussed and more.

Other issues discussed by Frompovich included those with prescription drugs, the rampant rise in disease, health issues that are trending, as well as issues with intestines and bowel movements.   The author touches upon these rather saliently showing why each is vital to know about.

Probiotics/Prebiotics are also given a cursory glance, so are artificial sweeteners and their ramifications, as well as issues that revolve around sugar, which is a rather underreported topic by the mainstream establishment.   It’s quite unfortunate, because sugar is one of the biggest fuels in cancer, and most people do not know this.

In any case, Frompovich also covers foods that can help reduce pain, which was rather useful.  As someone who suffered heavily from inflammation for nigh two decades due to intestinal conditions but overcame it with diet and lifestyle changes, dealing with pain in a natural way is something greatly appreciated.

A short section, but jam-packed with info in the book is called “Which Foods Help The Body Most In Managing Certain Diseases”.  This section touches upon some of the foods that are helpful in combating issues with blood pressure, cancer, cholesterol, diabetes, heart, the immune system, and stroke.

Other health issues that Frompovich gives a fair nod to are Gallbladder [Disease & Stones], Hypothyroidism, Glaucoma & Obesity & Weight Loss.

Additionally, the book includes a chapter that touches upon HPV Vaccine Reactions and what individuals can do when implementing proper nutrition.  This might be highly helpful for individuals that have dealt with this.

Thereafter, the author covers the importance of B-Complex Vitamin, benefits of fermented foods, and also problems with genetically modified foods which are rampant these days.

Featured also in the book are countless resources that people can use to learn more information about these subjects.  This was also highly valuable given the importance of the subject.

Besides all of this, the author covers so much more.  In all fairness, a few sections of the book are not super in-depth, BUT, this is because the author is taking a broad brush approach to cover as much as possible within the arena of nutritional health.  The information provided does give enough of a launching pad for individuals to begin taking charge of their health, which is one of the premises of this book.  That fact does in no way detract from the book, it’s just something to keep note of.

One more important point.  The author – thankfully! – footnoted the book extensively, which is how ALL books should be done, at the bottom of each page, like it used to be done in olden times.

Unfortunately, newer footnoting techniques have changed extensively from how books were written centuries ago.  This in a way serves as de facto censorship of data and prevents people from accessing information by either making it harder to find, or simply not even having it in many cases.  The fact that many ebooks, if not most don’t even have footnotes speaks to this VERY issue, which is vital importance, especially for those who value knowledge and research.

Apologies for the tangent, it’s just that as a researcher its highly valuable when people footnote their sources within their book, or articles.

Eat To Beat Disease is a veritable template for the many ways individuals can employ nutrition to conquer disease.  It’s the type of book that should be discussed at length in society, and by the mainstream press, but will not any coverage due to the ramifications and the profits it would ‘steal’ from Big Pharma/Big Medica.  That fact alone should make proactive and mindful individuals weary since optimal health methods should be something to strive for, or at least discuss, and not something to overlook if not downright suppress, which is what happens more often than not.

This blacklisting is best exemplified by what took place to Dr. Brogan in her landmark book A Mind Of Your Own – The Truth About Depression.

When one keeps in mind the above constellation of facts and more, this book is invaluable and should become part of your library.
