Book Review: Food Cures

Did you know that you can treat common health concerns, look younger and live longer — using food? Joy Bauer’s Food Cures explains exactly what to eat to lower high cholesterol and blood pressure, improve skin tone, sharpen memory, sleep better, and take charge of PMS, arthritis, and more.

This is a great book for learning more about overall eating healthy. It isn’t a gluten-free diet specific book so it is important to keep that in mind. It is however, full of lots of great information and can be universally helpful.
