The first edition of this volume, entitled Food and Nutrients in Disease Management was praised for its practical, easy-to-use clinical applications presented by highly credentialed experts. This second edition reviews several new disorders as well as emerging themes uncovered by new research, including the body’s increased demand for certain nutrients when faced with toxic exposures, food safety issues in patients with allergies and pre-existing medical conditions, and the effects of variables such as ultraviolet light, radiation, jetlag, and shift-work on nutritional needs. Organized conveniently based on specific medical disorders, the book’s chapters each conclude with a summary of clinical recommendations for the specific condition discussed.
- Contains more than 40 disease-specific chapters providing information on the relationships between food, nutrients, and management of disease
- Includes several new themes and topics, including periodontal disease, steatohepatitis, bariatric surgery, atopic dermatitis, and kidney stones
- Examines food-drug interactions and the effects of medications on the body's nutrient needs

When we walk into a grocery store, we are really entering a pharmacy with precious nutrients and potentially dangerous toxins. The power of nutrition in enhancing our most innovative medical interventions as well as avoiding their need become readily apparent in this well organized, comprehensive work that is an essential textbook for healers around the world. The sacredness of food is often forgotten and leads to many of the chronic illnesses that ail modern society. This text reminds us of the strong scientific foundation for arguing that healing starts with our diet.
