"Dr Campbell-McBride has done it again! She brings her intelligence and uncorrupted common sense to the table and re-introduces us to the middle path of nutrition outlined in her book. It’s not just a ‘must-read’ but also a ‘must follow’!"–Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt MD, PhD
"Vegetarianism Explained is a rational, science-based, common-sense explanation of how our bodies use food, that will allow all of us – healthy people, sick people, parents raising children - to understand the role of our food choices, what different foods do in our bodies and what our bodies need. This book should be required reading for every teenager, every parent, and every person fighting an illness. Thank you Dr Campbell-McBride, you’ve produced another critical masterpiece of health guidance for us all!"–Dr. Tom O’Bryan, DC CCN DACBN, author of The Autoimmune Fix
"Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride has done it again! As in her previous publications, she shone clear light where there is much misunderstanding and misinformation about nutrition and health. Her masterly blending of clinical cases, extensive review of the literature, and voice of personal experience make for compelling reading."–Dr. Shideh Pouria, PhD
"Finally a world-class human digestion expert explains why eating animals is positive for human health. The current diatribe against animal agriculture and meat consumption needs to tangle with a formidable foe: the human gut. As Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride dissects human digestion and its relationship to animals, the accusations that grass-fed livestock is destroying the planet are clearly disproven."–Joel Salatin, Organic Farmer, Consultant, and Author of Folks, This Ain’t Normal, and Your Successful Farm Business

In 2016, she wrote Put Your Heart in Your Mouth. In this book Dr. Campbell-McBride dives into the subject and the research on Coronary Heart Disease. She challenges current medical norms, for example, how cholesterol is not the enemy, but an integral and important part of our cell membranes. Following this book, she wrote the Gut and Psychology Syndrome-GAP and helped to bridge the gap between Psychology and Nutrition. Doctors typically only receive about 12 hours of nutrition, and Mental Health Counselors, Family and Marriage Therapists, and Psychologist typically receive none. This book is a must read for anyone working with clients suffering from Autism, Bi-polar, depression, ADHD, ADD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, and/or Schizophrenia. As a Family and Marriage Therapist, I have been able to better support patients in healing these conditions, using the GAPS diet.
After I read the GAPS book, I wondered what this brilliant doctor would have to say about Vegetarianism. To my surprise, she just released the answers to my inquiry in her most recent book, Vegetarianism Explained: Making an Informed Decision. She thoroughly describes how to achieve optimal health and vitality by eating in harmony with the body’s needs, utilizing both plant and animal foods and by attuning to one’s heredity and constitution. She also explains how food is cultivated, and addresses the accusation’s that grass-fed livestock is destroying the planet. The book is organized with and introduction, five chapters, and a conclusion. The chapters explain where our food comes from, how to get the essential micro and macro nutrients from our food, the benefits of fasting and the six different types of fasts, why it is important not to economise our food, the dangers of eating processed industrial foods, and how one man’s meat is another man’s poison.
There is much controversy in the world today surrounding food and food choices that can be confusing and difficult to understand. Most of us want to make good decisions for our health and wellness of our bodies and minds. We are also more aware of environmental issues, and want to make good choices or our environment. Dr. Campbell-McBride helps to dismantle the myths and empower us with the knowledge we need to make sound and informed decisions for our lives and our planet.
