New Book Endorsement

We're thrilled that our book, Ancient Wisdom, Modern Kitchen: Recipes from the East for Health, Healing, and Long Life, is receiving another endorsement.

Dr. Sheldon S. Hendler, Ph.D., M.D., FACP, FACN, editor-in-chief, Journal of Medicinal Food, author and co-editor, PDR (Physicians’ Desk Reference) for Nutritional Supplements, and clinical professor of medicine (voluntary), University of California, San Diego, writes:

"Scientific studies have found that many foods (for example cabbage), spices (for example tumeric) and drinks (for example green tea) possess health-promoting and disease-preventing properties beyond their basic nutritional function.

Ancient Wisdom, Modern Kitchen discusses 100 Asian foods, spices and drinks that have reported beneficial health effects. Some, such as the spice tumeric, or more specifically, the curcuminoids found in tumeric, have been shown in animal studies to have anticancer, anti-inflammatory and cognition-enhancing activities. In addition to discussing these potential health promoting substances, the authors show us how to use them, in over 150 delicious recipes.

Ancient Wisdom, Modern Kitchen is a good read, intelligent, interesting and potentially tasty. I highly recommend it."

Our book has also been endorsed by:
• Giovanni Maciocia, C.Ac., author of The Practice of Chinese Medicine, The Foundations of Chinese Medicine, The Psyche in Chinese Medicine, and other works
• Paul W. Miller, M.D., adjunct professor, Exercise and Nutritional Science Department, San Diego State University
• Jack Miller, president of Pacific College of Oriental Medicine
• Guohui Liu, MS, MB/BS, LAc, faculty member at Oregon College of Oriental medicine and National College of Naturopathic Medicine, and author of Warm Diseases: A Clinical Guide and other works
