In Let Food Be Your Medicine, Dr. Don Colbert takes a look at the most common health issues and offers simple dietary changes using a specially modified Mediterranean Diet. With a better understanding of what to eat and what not to eat, readers will know how their nutritional choices affect: - CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE - WEIGHT LOSS - ARTHRITIS - ADHD - TYPE 2 DIABETES - CANCER - AND MORE. Let Food Be Your Medicine includes meal plans, delicious recipes, tips on supplements, and other information to help you find an approach to food that will change your life. You can beat genetics.

Most of us think God is not concerned with what we eat, but the Bible actually offers great insight and instruction about the effects of food on our bodies. Dr. Colbert introduces a revolutionary sugar detox method, combined with an anti-inflammatory form of the modified Mediterranean diet that resolves a broad spectrum of diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, dementia, cancer, and osteoarthritis. Just imagine – understanding how food alone can produce mental clarity, balanced weight, and longevity. Includes meal plans and recipes.

My Thoughts:

I have been trying to make healthier choices in my life for the last few years. Food is one of those changes. Food seems to be the hardest change in an American diet and a busy schedule. For the most part we know that diet changes can prevent diseases. I was intrigued by Dr. Don Colbert’s book and the contents of it.

He uses the principals of the Mediterranean diet with some modifications to help with health issues discussed in the book. He explains how certain foods react to our body.

Food suggestions are made for all meals so you can get a feel of what a typical meal would look like. He talks about how certain foods are a source of inflammation and other health issues. 

The book is broken down in two sections.

Section One: Searching for Answers
