Some are truly science based and technical; the textbooks on the recommended reading in the naturopathic colleges however there are others that are just a pure joy to read. Here is a sample of a few and are updated regularly.

Eating on the Wild Side
By Jo Robinson
Publication Date: May 2014
My latest favourite book is the winner of the 2014 IACP Cookbook Award in the category of “Food Matters.” The next stage in the food revolution-a radical way to select fruits and vegetables and reclaim the flavor and nutrients we’ve lost. Ever since farmers first planted seeds 10,000 years ago, humans have been destroying the nutritional value of their fruits and vegetables. Unwittingly, we’ve been selecting plants that are high in starch and sugar and low in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants for more than 400 generations. This book reveals the solution-choosing modern varieties that approach the nutritional content of wild plants but that also please the modern palate.
Based on years of scientific research and filled with food history and practical advice, EATING ON THE WILD SIDE will forever change the way we think about food.
Gut and Psychology Syndrome:
Natural Treatment for Autism, ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Depression, Schizophrenia – By Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride
- Publication date: 15 Nov 2010
Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride set up The Cambridge Nutrition Clinic in 1998. As a parent of a child diagnosed with learning disabilities, she is acutely aware of the difficulties facing other parents like her, and she has devoted much of her time to helping these families. She realized that nutrition played a critical role in helping children and adults to overcome their disabilities, and has pioneered the use of probiotics in this field. I love Natasha’s work and is the reason I studied to become a GAPS practitioner. Her work to help thousands suffering from diseases that relate to the gut is enormous. An excellent book to have in your library to change your health. This book captures her experience and knowledge, incorporating her most recent work.
