Health Care Through Nutrition Publication date : June 1, 2000

"Let the food you eat be your medicine," wrote Hippocrates in the fifth century B.C., emphasising the part played by food in the healthy functioning of the human organism. But it wasn't until the end of the twentieth century that nutrition came to be regarded as a serious science, on a par with other forms of treatment. Today, nutrition plays a key role in the treatment of many diseases, such as diabetes, high cholesterol, cancer, Aids, as well as in minor physical problems such as eczema, fatigue and hair loss. Familiarity with the rules of hygiene and diet can help human beings to improve their physical resources, to remain in good health or to improve their health.
Les Aliments qui Soignent aims at giving readers the necessary dietary knowledge to enable them to fight against disease and find greater harmony. Paule Nathan explains in a straightforward, practical manner the dietary and hygienic rules that should be followed in cases of:
- diseases of the digestive system,
- lipid disorders (high cholesterol or too many triglycerides),
- cardio-vascular diseases,
- diabetes.
The following are also discussed: hypoglycaemia, allergies, osteoporosis, anaemia, cancer, gallstones, gout, no-salt diets, and tendinitis.
