“I want to make this as easy as possible for people,” says Dr. Devillier. “Good nutrition doesn’t have to be confusing or complicated. I hope this e-book will help people make permanent changes to the way they think about food and how they use it for better health.”
Each chapter focuses on a different system of the body. It includes information on what the system does, potential health concerns related to the system’s functioning, and food and tips to support better health.
Your Body’s Vital Systems
Systems covered in the e-book – and some of their main functions – include:
- Digestive: breaks down, processes, and assimilates food
- Intestinal: absorbs and stores nutrients and eliminates waste
- Circulatory: provides nutrients and oxygen to the cells and removes toxins and waste
- Urinary: eliminates toxic waste
- Kidneys: filters blood and regulates blood pressure
- Respiratory: provides oxygen to the blood stream and removes carbon dioxide
- Glandular: makes hormones that help cells communicate with each other
- Nervous: triggers and monitors all communication processes in the body
- Structural: gives the body form and mobility and protects insides from the outside environment
- Immune: distinguishes between what belongs in the body and what doesn’t and helps remove what the body doesn’t need
- Hepatic: produces bile and converts waste products for excretion by the kidneys
Food & Health Tips
The book highlights common health concerns associated with each of the above systems and provides tips for alleviating them and supporting good health through a well-thought-out eating plan. It’s also packed with recipes, health tips, and fun facts such as:
- Broccoli may give the biggest bang for the buck in fighting heart disease. One cup, which contains only 45 calories, supplies more than your daily requirement of two antioxidants, Vitamin C, and beta-carotene, all of which play a significant role in combatting heart disease.
- The heart beats about 100,000 times per day to push blood through the body, transporting life-sustaining minerals to the body’s cells and removing metabolic waste.
- The kidneys recycle the body’s entire blood volume every six minutes.
- In humans, cow’s milk can clog and irritate the entire respiratory system. It invites hay fever, asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, colds, runny noses, ear infections, headaches, and heart disease.
- A hiccup is your body telling you that what you just ate was irritating.
- When lymph nodes become congested, inflamed, and swollen, it can become problematic. Fluid retention, sore throats, earaches, tender breasts, and other problems can arise. Dry brushing is imperative for positive lymph movement and detoxification as well as helping the immune system work better.
Lifestyle & Food Choices
Finally, the e-book includes tips for how to implement a healthy eating plan as well as lifestyle choices that will help keep your body and brain performing well. On the final pages, Dr. Devillier reveals some of her key health takeaways, including:
- Practice meditation
- Kitchen closes at 8pm
- Move your body at least 20+ minutes every day
- Practice gratitude
- Avoid foods that cause irritation
“Take this process slow and be consistent daily,” says Dr. Devillier. “Recommit each morning to your routine and focus on what you can manage, like taking this little guide with you on your next grocery trip.”
