12 Apr 2022 BOOK REVIEW – The Medicinal Chef: The Nutrition Bible: An A-Z of Ailments and Medicinal Foods – The Medicinal Chef
Dale Pinnock’s ‘The Nutrition Bible’ offers a client-friendly go-to guide on some nutrition basics. Split into 4 main sections, the book offers highlights on nutrition through different life stages, alphabetical reference guides to common ailments and medicinal foods and an overview on common nutritional supplements. Covering complaints frequently seen in nutritional therapy clinics, such as eczema, acid reflux, menstrual cramps, constipation, high blood pressure and fatigue, it provides an overview of each condition and suggests manageable dietary recommendations. The second A-Z section presents a list of the foods, what they contain and the conditions they may be good for. The final section reviews commonly used nutritional supplements, their function in the body and when they may be helpful.
Nutrition practitioners will not find anything new in this book. However, it does provide a useful quick reference guide, particularly for conditions that are less familiar to you.
