Super Charged Food - Book Give away.

Open Until Midnight, Australian Time.

Here is the Link to buy this book now. 
I'm a book lover, but a slow reader. There are many books that I have really enjoyed reading and have helped me along my journey to health and well being.

Last week I found this book by Lee Holmes that fits so well into what we are doing with our health.

The recipes are gluten, wheat, dairy, yeast and sugar- free. Which fits really well into the GAPS, Paleo, Primal Living and generally 'wanting to improve your health' way of thinking.

A little about the Writer and the Book, Lee Holmes.

In 2006 Lee Holmes was struggling with her life- tired, unwell, struggling to gain weight (45kg or 99lbs) and her health was going downhill.

Over the next 12 months, she went from doctor to doctor, test to test in an effort to find out what was going on with her body.

Eventually Lee was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease and fibromyalgia. From her prognosis onwards, life became filled with prescriptions for immunosuppressants, steroids, and anti-inflammatories which made her feel worse.

She needed a Change!

Fed up with being unwell and on a mountain of drugs she decided to go on a journey of discovery with food. This book is filled with information she discovered on that journey, as she learned to use food as her medicine and heal herself.

In the book Lee shares her top 5 foods for the Kitchen Medicine-Chest. Her top 10 superstar foods and how to use them. Also she makes reference to Detoxing and Natural cleaners for your home, and so many other useful tips and great advice for how to get started, giving your pantry and shopping list a makeover; and I must say the photos are gorgeous!.

Lee Holmes latest book is called "Heal Your Gut". 

Heal Your Gut is an informative, uncomplicated and achievable gut healing protocol which will inspire, motivate and bring about true healing to the body.

The natural four week protocol is not scary and honors the body as a whole. The healing program is divided into four phases for you to follow one step at a time.

The book connects with the emotional, stress and brain related aspects of gut health. Recognising the activity of cortisol in the body, meeting the Vegus Nerve, and really learning to belly breathe through fears and worries is just one crucial part to healing from within.

There are chapters covering the gut and immune system connection and the two-way interdependent relationship between the gut and the brain. The book also covers lifestyle factors which contribute to gut health such as such as cleaning products and beauty products.

So now it's giveaway time! 

I have TWO prizes to give away. 

One copy of "Super Charged Food" by Lee Holmes, 

and a copy of Lee's Latest E-book "Heal Your Gut".
