Medical tips about FOOD

Food is our medicine. ..Each of us has a tremendous opportunity to take charge of our lives using food to transform our health. You can make decisions about what to eat and drink based on the scientific evidence from food testing with the same systems and methods used to discover and develop drugs. The data generated when we study foods such as drugs clearly show that foods can affect our health in a specific and beneficial way. Most up to date scientific research on the Power of foods. ...to balance and heal! Highly recommended!

Take action

it is always good to make positive food choices because it will help reinforce your health defenses, but you will sometimes be in a situation where the right choices are neither easy nor possible. That's why regularly making good decisions can help balance the effects of unhealthy choices that we all make occasionally and this brings us to the 5 × 5 × 5 framework.

This 5 x 5 x 5 frame is not a plan to lose weight, a physical diet or a plan of mental clarity. It's not a meal-by-meal, or a day-by-day plan that tells you how to live your life strictly. It's much better.

The 5 × 5 × 5 is a framework, not a prescription, it fits any diets you currently follow, be it Paleo, Whole30, Ornish, low-carb, gluten-free, allergen-free, plants-based or ketogenic, and it's easy to adopt if you do not follow a plan at all.

The 5 × 5 × 5 framework is flexible and requires little implementation effort, which facilitates compliance. And it's not restrictive. It's about adding beneficial foods to your diet, without excluding foods.

The 5 × 5 × 5 framework gives you the freedom to choose what you eat and when you eat it. The starting point is to select your favorite foods from a list of foods known to improve your defense systems.

The 5 × 5 × 5 frame is designed to avoid the problem of boredom by constantly eating the same things. It's easier to follow healthy habits when eating what you already love.

Are you ready to take action to make your body healthier and better able to fight disease than this book is for you?

Supportive ideas

Eat to beat disease made me to embrace the fact that to understand the health benefits of foods, we must first understand the definition of health. For most people, health is the absence of disease. But it's much more than that. In fact, the definition of health requires a major update. What is clear is that our health is an active state, protected by a series of extraordinary defense systems in the body that are activated in all cylinders, from birth to the last day of life, allowing our cells and organs to function without problems.
These health defense systems are wired into our bodies to protect us. Some are so powerful that they can even reverse diseases such as cancer. And even though they function as separate defense systems, they also support and interact. These defense systems are the common denominators of health. By re calibrating our approach to disease prevention and focusing on these common denominators, we can take a unified approach to intercept diseases before they occur. It can be as powerful as finding common denominators for treating diseases, as we did two decades ago. Each of the systems is influenced by the diet. When you know what to eat to support each health promotion action, you know how to use your diet to stay healthy and conquer the disease. This is a book you must listen to especially for those that is looking forward to living a healthy lifestyle.

Editing fail

I am really interested in this subject and actually got the book itself, but thought I’d try this while walking to work.
I must say this is definitely not worth a credit. Some sections are repeated, as if just copied and pasted. Needs re-editing. At one point it just sounds like the reader has a burp. Might be a cutting imperfection but should not have published like that.

Better to buy the original book

I watched videos of Dr Li and was interested in his Eat to Beat Disease book. However, the full book wasn't available on Audible. I thought this synopsis might give me an insight into whether or not to buy the printed version. Well, I do wish to buy the book, but this audio presentation and the narration were not the inspiration to do so. The narrator's native tongue is not English, though he did his best with pronunciation, but whoever was responsible for editing did a poor job. Sentences repeated during narration were not edited out and there was even a burp and a cough that were not edited out. While it made me laugh, it was still an indication of a sloppy production. Don't bother buying it as an audio book, just go straight to buying the proper version written by Dr William Li.

Review of Eat to beat Disease

Was a good summary. Pity there are repeats in parts where recording has repeated the written word. One needs the book to go back and revisit parts.

Awful recording quality and poor reading voice

Terribly disappointed with the awful reading voice, poor intonation, poor pronunciation and unprofessional recording quality. The reader actually burps half way through chapter 14/ beginning of chapter 15!!!!! And there is loud knocking heard. I’d like a refund of my credit please.

Not for audiobook

Interesting but poor production distracts the listener from the message. Need to see supporting material.

.

I couldn't listen to this book for longer than 5 minutes because of the infuriating inflection of the narrator. Absolutely hideous.

essential reading

Not enough emphasis is ever put on diet and nutrition when combatting disease generally. I am pleased and grateful to have read this book and gained so much. I strongly believe that nutritional science should be a mandatory requirement in general education and especially with medical sciences. Thank you Dr Li for bringing this book out to us all.

Affordable!!

If I could afford to buy a copy for everyone I love, I know I would. This book presents information about the healing properties of different types of foods and what they do. This book presents the science in a clear and concise way.
