Do you want to avoid illness, maintain your ideal weight, and reach your highest potential, both physically and spiritually? You might be surprised to find the answers in a revelation from God called the Word of Wisdom. But if you think you already know what this revelation says, think again. You'll be amazed to discover the “hidden treasures” brought to light through a way of eating supported both by history and by science: a whole food, plant-based diet.

Whole food, plant-based diets have been proven to both prevent and cure chronic disease, help you achieve your maximum physical potential, and make it easy to reach and maintain your ideal weight. In this book, you’ll read the stories of dozens of people who are enjoying the blessings of following a Word of Wisdom diet, and you’ll get concrete advice on how to get started!

You will discover:

  • What we should and should not eat to enjoy maximum physical health.
  • How food is intimately connected to our spiritual well being.
  • Why Latter-day Saints are succumbing to the same chronic diseases as the rest of the population, despite not smoking, drinking, or doing drugs.
  • How the Word of Wisdom was designed specifically for our day.
  • How you can receive the “hidden treasures” and other blessings promised in the Word of Wisdom.
  • Why eating the foods God has ordained for our use is better not just for our bodies but for the animals and for the earth.
If you believe you know what the Word of Wisdom says, you may be amazed at what you have missed. Learn why Latter-day Saints all over the world are “waking up” to the Word of Wisdom!

From the Author:

This book is my journey, and the journey of many other Latter-day Saints, in discovering the Word of Wisdom. It is a careful exploration of all the parts of D&C 89 that we conveniently skip over in our discussions of the Word of Wisdom. But these parts are just as important to receiving the promised blessings as all the "don'ts" with which we are so familiar. I hope your discovery of the Word of Wisdom will be as joyful as mine!

From the Back Cover:

"It is fascinating that the proposal to use a whole food, plant-based diet has a rich tradition in the founding of many religions, including those going back to ancient times in the Middle East. In North America, the Word of Wisdom of the Mormon Church and the writings of Ellen G. White, which encouraged the development of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, are the most notable." 
-- T. Colin Campbell, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry, Cornell University, Author of The China Study 
 
 "This book provides a practical roadmap for using the Word of Wisdom to live a healthier, more productive, and spiritually fulfilling life." 
-- J. Michael Hunter, Mormon Studies Librarian Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University
 
"This book is a must read for anyone who wants to fully realize all the promised blessings found in the Word of Wisdom." 
-- Debra Christofferson, Registered Dietician,  Research Professor of Nutrition, Utah State University
  Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are familiar with  the Word of Wisdom, a revelation from God that forms the Mormon guide to healthy eating. But they (and other readers) may be surprised to discover that the Lord has revealed much more through this revelation than we ever previously supposed. It is truly guidance designed specifically for our day, to help us reach our highest potential, both physically and spiritually. And there has never been a time when this divine wisdom was more needed.
   Discovering the Word of Wisdom explores this revelation through the perspective of what is now known about the healthiest human diet, a way of eating supported both by history and by science: a whole food, plant-based diet. In this book, you'll discover the remarkable clarity with which the Word of Wisdom teaches us how and what we should eat to optimize our physical and spiritual well-being. You'll also read the stories of dozens of Mormons who are enjoying the blessings of living this lifestyle, and you will receive concrete advice on how to get started!
