Description
This book is the most comprehensive summary available of all of Hildegard of Bingen's nutritional insights.  It is a unique and accessible guide utilizing the remarkable possibilities for maintaining and restoring health through simple and tasty nutrition.  A new era in medicine is beginning, which concerns itself with nutrition that can prevent illness and restore health more radically than ever before. Hildegard of Bingen (1098 - 1189) with her prophetic gift and depth of vision, was the first to describe the healing powers of food. Hildegard's nutritional approach is simple and healthy for many reasons.  Healthy nutrition must not only taste good, but also refresh body and soul. Hildegard of Bingen’s nutritional teachings are divided into three books. This first book focuses on the grain spelt and contains more than 30 spelt-based recipes. The second book contains delicious Hildegard recipes ranging from spelt, vegetables, fruits, fish and meats, to beverages. The third and final book describes 18 remedies and diets for the prevention and healing of the most common diseases, with specific nutritional recommendations for babies, athletes and seniors. Hildegard of Bingen’s approach to nutrition can alter and improve your health and your life. The foods we eat become our treatment in the prevention and even healing of diseases. Proof of this are the thousands of people who have not only experienced and come to love the benefits of Hildegard's nutritional approach, but alleviated or cured their illnesses in this way.

He continued with clinical research and finished his industrial career in acquisitions and licensing for natural health firms. In Constance, Germany after Strehlow met Dr. Hertzka, an Austrian medical doctor, who was the first doctor to practice Hildegard of Bingen’s medicine, he returned to his initial interest in natural science and holistic medicine. In 1984 he succeeded Dr. Hertzka at the Hildegard Practice in Constance, clinically researching Hildegard of Bingen’s medical sources and applying them successfully on thousands of patients for over 30 years. Dr. Wighard Strehlow has published a great variety of books in German and French on the Hildegard health program regarding heart and circulatory diseases, cancer and immune deficiencies, gastrointestinal disorders, rheumatism, gout, gynecological illnesses and skin disorders. He is a founding member of the Society of phytotherapy in Germany, and was also an active co-worker for the German food and drug administration in order to register Hildegard’s remedies, such as galangal, as safe and effective.
