For years, Chelsea Green has been at the forefront of healthy soil, food, and environment. So it’s only natural that we’re expanding now into the realm of human health, examining the connections between what we eat and how we feel.
We’re excited to announce the launch of a new line of books based on cutting edge nutritional science and integrative techniques that promote holistic approaches to healing.
At a time when the medical system is failing to address a growing epidemic of chronic and autoimmune disease and conventional treatment often leans on toxic medications, we need a new model of health care based on strengthening our immune systems and using the right foods to sustain and repair our metabolic systems.
To celebrate the beginning of our journey into integrative health, all of our health books are 35% off through the end of March. Learn how everything from Alzheimer’s and cancer to heart disease and Osteoporosis can be prevented or managed using emerging methods such as the ketogenic diet, healthy fats, deep nutrition, and nourishing the microbiome.
Featured titles include:
The Alzheimer’s Antitdote by Amy Berger
In a culture obsessed with miracle medications, the pharmaceutical route for tackling Alzheimer’s has been a massive failure. Pills and potions don’t address underlying causes, and regarding Alzheimer’s, they typically fail to improve even the symptoms. As a metabolic problem, the only effective way to treat Alzheimer’s may be a multifaceted approach that fundamentally reprograms energy generation in the brain. The good news is, the secret is as simple as switching to a low-carb, high-fat diet.
The Alzheimer’s Antidote shows us that cognitive decline is not inevitable, but if it does occur, we don’t have to sit idly by and wait helplessly while it progresses and worsens. Amy Berger empowers loved ones and caregivers of Alzheimer’s sufferers, and offers hope and light against this otherwise unnavigable labyrinth of darkness. Read more...
Tripping Over the Truth by Travis Christofferson, MS
In the wake of the Cancer Genome Atlas project’s failure to provide a legible roadmap to a cure for cancer, science writer Travis Christofferson illuminates a promising blend of old and new perspectives on the disease. Tripping over the Truth follows the story of cancer’s proposed metabolic origin from the vaunted halls of the German scientific golden age to modern laboratories around the world. The reader is taken on a journey through time and science that results in an unlikely connecting of the dots with profound therapeutic implications.
For anyone affected by this terrifying disease and the physicians who struggle to treat it, this book provides a fresh and hopeful perspective. It explores the new and exciting non-toxic therapies born from the emerging metabolic theory of cancer. Read more…
Human Heart, Cosmic Heart by Dr. Thomas Cowan, MD
Thomas Cowan was a 20-year-old Duke grad—bright, skeptical, and already disillusioned with industrial capitalism—when he joined the Peace Corps in the mid-1970s for a two-year tour in Swaziland. There, he encountered the work of Rudolf Steiner and Weston A. Price—two men whose ideas would fascinate and challenge him for decades to come.
In this deeply personal, rigorous, and riveting account, Dr. Cowan offers up a daring claim: Not only was Steiner correct that the heart is not a pump, but our understanding of heart disease—with its origins in the blood vessels—is completely wrong. And this gross misunderstanding, with its attendant medications and risky surgeries, is the reason heart disease remains the most common cause of death worldwide. Read more…
