Physician Feedback

“My patients have responded with interest and enthusiasm to Deirdre's concise book, lectures, and consultations. One such patient, with a long history of recalcitrant atopic dermatitis, is now beautifully controlled off all prescription and over-the-counter medications. Another has been adhering to the healing foods diet and has experienced a profound improvement in her psoriasis. For the motivated patient, the healing foods diet can provide a safe and effective alternative to pharmacologic therapy.”

Your Healing Diet Feedback

"I recently purchased your book and really feel that it’s the best book of its type. Other books make the prospect of an anti-inflammatory diet seem very daunting, expensive and inflexible... yours is the first that gives real-world, brand-name recommendations for on-the-go meals as well as breaking down what to look for on labels. This really speaks to my lifestyle as I simply don’t have the time to cook three meals a day.”
