From Library Journal
This unique natural healing "recipe" book describes the way food affects a couple's ability to get pregnant and stay pregnant. Reiss, who studied cooking and nutrition at the Culinary Institute of America and the Kushi Institute for Macrobiotic Studies, combines her educational background with medical research to conclude that a balanced diet of whole foods rich in vegetables, fruits, and grains may improve one's fertility. Claiming personal success, she discusses general good eating habits and the physiological basics of timing. Reiss has organized her book by fertility problem and its nutritional remedy (for example, eating yams may correct a short luteal phase defect). Food groups rather than vitamin dosages are emphasized (and vitamin pill supplements discouraged), which leads to vague recommendations of the amount of food to be consumed. Half of the book consists of recipes that seem simple to follow but, unfortunately, exclude nutrition facts. Although there are many holistic books dealing with infertility, this seems to be the only one that discusses food and fertility exclusively. For larger collections.ALisa A.
