About Nourishing the Body and Recovering Health: The Positive Science of Food:
In this one-of-a-kind book and guide, the author redefines health care as the practice of nourishing ourselves to support a lifelong partnership with our body. Guiding us from the human cell to the kitchen and beyond, the author explores every intersection where the body meets food. We are reminded that only nourishing food is capable of powering our metabolism, our brains, and our muscles. With the ''Virtual Kitchen Tour'' -- a unique and practical exercise -- we are invited to reevaluate our household food bank. Living in the context of relationships, family, friends, schools, senior centers, the workplace, and the community, all are recognized and respected participants in the lifestyle changes one will undertake. There is also a close look at how a western lifestyle contributes to chronic illness and how we can amend this. Through actual case studies, we are invited to reflect on our own lifestyle.

About Code Blue:
Code Blue reveals lapses in the current state of medicine and provides a common sense solution by featuring the practice of lifestyle medicine to prevent, manage and reverse chronic diseases. The film presents the hurdles to the proposed shift: antiquated curricula in medical schools, confusion in the media, inadequate government policies, and the underlying influences of the pharmaceutical and food industries. Code Blue follows a passionate physician, Dr. Saray Stancic, as she reflects upon her journey from a multiple sclerosis diagnosis to wellness through her own adoption of lifestyle medicine. Dr. Stancic introduces us to expert physicians and scientists who are paving the way to make meaningful and necessary change in our healthcare environment, and in turn, empowering audiences to stand up and reclaim control of their health.
