I would like to recommend an outstanding book written by Jordan Rubin, founder of Garden of Life products. His book, "The Maker’s Diet", is a firsthand account of how he suffered from Crohn’s disease, with near- fatal episodes of symptoms and setbacks, and managed to take control of his own health by following The Maker’s Diet (foods that are found in the Bible and have proven results for optimal health through the generations).
In this book, Rubin takes you on his journey, sharing knowledge from his own experiences. Gut health is more important than we realize and with the explanations contained in his book, you will soon learn the mechanics of a “well-oiled” machine...your body, mind, and soul. His new book was released this last December ("The Maker’s Diet Revolution: The 10 Day Diet to Lose Weight and Detoxify Your Body, Mind, and Spirit"). I recommend both of these books. The second book goes in depth about GMOs and the ill effects it has on our bodies, raw fermented foods, the health of all of our body’s organs, the impact pesticides have on us, choosing the best water source, details on cleansing and why it is important, health myths and truths, and the importance of eating raw foods. Now is a great time to detox, cleanse, and prepare your body for a healthy new beginning. Check out Heinen's raw fermented foods in the deli area, Garden of Life products in the Wellness aisle, and an outstanding produce department with a rainbow of edible vitamins and minerals!
