Why do some of us get sick with greater frequency than others?
What makes us more susceptible to illness?
Are we doomed to get sick when our coworkers and family members do?
Is there a secret to staying healthy?
Joel Fuhrman, M.D., a leading expert and board-certified medical specialist in prevention and reversing disease, offers a comprehensive guide to superior health.
Based on the latest scientific research, Super Immunity shows us how we can become almost totally resistant to colds, influenza, and other infections.
The evidence is overwhelming: we can supercharge our immune system to protect our bodies against disease—everything from the common cold to cancer. Nutritional science has made phenomenal strides and discoveries in recent years, and when this new research is applied it enables us to seize control of our health like never before. Dr. Fuhrman explains this new science, providing everything you need to know to put this knowledge into action in your kitchen and in your life.
What we eat has everything to do with our health, and, unfortunately, too many of us are living with a severely depleted immune function. Our dietary choices are making us sicker, shortening our lives, and costing us billions of dollars in doctor visits, hospital stays, and prescription medications. But Dr. Fuhrman doesn’t believe more medical care is the answer. Rather, he explains the solution is to change the way we eat. The standard American diet is nutrient deficient. We are eating too many highly processed foods, foods with added sweeteners, and animal fats and protein. At the same time, we are not eating enough fruits, beans, seeds, and vegetables, which leaves us lacking in hundreds of the most important immune-building compounds. By changing our diets and combining foods that contain powerful immune-strengthening capabilities, we can prevent most common modern diseases.
Combining the latest data from clinical tests, nutritional research, and results from thousands of patients, Dr. Fuhrman proves that super immunity exists and is well within reach for those who choose it. We all have the ability to live healthier, stronger, and longer than ever before. Isn’t it time you dis-covered super immunity?About the Author:

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. No Shots. No Drugs. No Sick days. Every year in September the spectre of cold and flu season arrives. It has become a fact of life. We might as well allot for our sick days knowing that we will be hit at least once, if not two to three times before Spring s arrival. In every office and in every family, there are those who get sick regularly and those who manage to stay healthy through it all. In Super Immunity , Dr. Fuhrman will explain why some of us get sick more regularly than others and offer a proven program to stay healthy through the year. Dr. Fuhrman argues that our current approach to disease is doing far more harm than good. He asserts that flu shots, antibiotics, supplements and alternative treatments are not the answer and can actually make us more sick. He explains why our current efforts are failing us. The truth is far too many have depleted or compromised immune systems. This is no surprise given antibiotics are prescribed with every cough and sniffle and it is too easy to get simply stuck in a vicious cycle of a cold or flu that passes from one family or office member to the next before you have a chance to get healthy again. The answer, he suggests, is as simple as what we eat. Super Immunity offers a detailed, proven and easy-to-follow program for escaping the sick bug and returning us to health and well-being. There is no need to dread the first Fall day, cringe at the first back to school sniffle, or call your doctor and schedule that flu shot. Super Immunity is a medical break-through that will work for you. Isn t it time you became the one who stays healthy during flu season?. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780062080639
