As you know, I’m a big fan of Neal’s Yard Remedies and organic products. I always think there’s not much point being careful about what you eat if you continue to slather your skin in a cocktail of noxious chemicals! But Neal’s Yard isn’t just about skincare, far from it; they’ve just brought out a new book called Healing Foods, written by Susan Curtis, Director for Natural Health at Neal’s Yard. Its aim is to help people eat their way to a healthier life.

It’s packed full of fascinating information about how you can use food to treat various medical conditions, as well as loads of tasty, super-healthy recipes. But don’t just take my word for it – check out this great review from The Telegraph.

There are sections of advice on eating for (amongst other things) healthy pregnancy, skin conditions, energy and stress relief. We can’t always control whether or not we become ill or develop a particular condition, but we can at least control what we eat. As Hippocrates said, “Let food by thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. Wise man!
