A program of recipes, superfoods, and medicine meals to maintain energy, restore cellular function, and reduce inflammation
As our bodies age, they become depleted of the digestive enzymes and healthy body fats necessary for optimal health and longevity, leaving us weak, deficient, overweight, and low in energy. We are also bombarded by inorganic chemicals in our food, air, and water that tax our bodies heavily, leading to inflammation and premature aging. To combat cellular deterioration and support optimum body function, we need to return to the healthy animal fats and healing food remedies of our Paleolithic ancestors.
Offering a restorative program of recipes, super foods, and medicine meals, Taoist Master Mantak Chia and William U. Wei reveal how to maintain and sustain healthy cellular activity well into old age through a balanced omnivorous diet and safe toxin elimination. They explain how, just as the pull of gravity encourages improper posture as we get older, the loss of internal chi pressure and the displacement of our inner organs cause a similar internal sagging as we age. The authors reveal the benefits of a diet containing healthy grass-fed meats, non-starchy vegetables, and omega-3 fatty acids and explain which vegetables and modern foods to avoid.
The authors provide a wealth of medicine meal suggestions, including recipes, to address specific issues and concerns, from weight loss and younger-looking skin to thyroid problems and liver detox to anxiety, chronic pain, and insomnia.
