Kirsten Hartvig is an acclaimed nutritionist, medical herbalist, and registered naturopath and the author of this marvellous, comprehensive handbook of natural nutrition, which tackles the complicated nature of using food for your health in a clearly laid out and approachable way. The first part of the book goes into detail about nutrition, from the five basic nutrients and calorific values to dietary deficiency and energy. In the second part we learn how foods stimulate the body’s natural self-healing ability, and the role of specific nutrients in treating everyday ailments, alongside advice on diets and dieting, and naturopathic health principles. As I said, it’s comprehensive so you’ll feel confident in trying to use diet and nutrients in helping you deal with a wide variety of issues.
