While Nei Jing Eastern Medicine does not have an official book club, there are some books that we hope all patients should read. The first such book that we want to recommend is “How Not to Die” by Dr. Michael Gregor.
The doctor has a long history helping improve his patients’ health through diet. He was also an expert witness for Oprah Winfrey when she was sued by the meat industry. He currently runs the information packed website, nutritionfacts.org that is a great resource that anyone can access.
This book shows how diet can prevent and even treat the top killers in western society. The last section of the book offers strategies for everyone to improve their health by getting a variety of the most nutritious foods. There is even a mention of the Nei Jing! Ancient doctors observed many of the health problems caused by diet that are still killing people today, no wonder it is mentioned in this great new book.
