Voices of the Food Revolution

The Saving Power of the Plant-Based Diet

"If optimal health ranks high on your life's priority list, then Voices of the Food Revolution may be one of the most important books you will ever read." ―Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Life Visioning

#1 Bestseller in Sustainable Agriculture

From the over-one-million-copies-sold author who made popular the connections between diet, physical health, animal cruelty, and environmentalism.

A revolution in food-politics. When John Robbins released an early version of this book in 1987, he took the first steps in launching the food revolution. His viewpoint and insight on the harms of America’s eating habits was a wake-up call for many.

Making conscious food choices. It is obvious to us that what we eat affects our own bodies, but what we may not realize is that what we eat also affects our world. In fact, most of the foods that are bad for us (think: genetically modified products) also negatively impact our environment. By approaching our eating habits with intentionality, we benefit our own health and that of the world we live in.

The value of a plant-based diet. Robbins’ arguments for a plant-based diet are compelling and backed by over 20 years of work focused on the subject of conscious eating. Through exposing the dangers in our factory farming system, Robbins makes a definitive case for solely plant-based eating. This timely read on healthy eating will enlighten those curious about plant-based diets and fortify the mindsets of the already converted.

Inside find:

  • The negative effects your current eating habits could be having on you
  • A powerful case for plant-based eating
  • Wisdom from one of the most frequently cited books of the food-politics revolution

If books such as We are the WeatherHow Not to Die31-Day Food Revolution, or Fast Food Genocide have interested you, then The Food Revolution is the next book for you!

The Add Myth

By

An Alternative Approach to Addressing ADD

Despite the millions of people taking medication for attention deficit disorders, there remains no objective method of diagnosis for ADHD. In The ADD Myth, Martha Burge proposes a different understanding and solution for those diagnosed.

ADD isn’t what we think it is. Author and ADHD coach Martha Burge introduces a different way of looking at the disorder often associated with boredom and impulsivity in young people. She argues that what is commonly understood as ADHD is actually five intense personality traits: sensual, psychomotor, intellectual, creative, and emotional. Once the supposed ADD symptoms are properly understood for what they are, people with these intense personality traits can develop them into gifts.

Finding an alternative solution. After having two sons diagnosed with ADHD, and witnessing their serious reaction to drug treatments, Martha began a search for a different approach and a more natural treatment for ADHD. By looking at all personalities as part of the neurodiversity spectrum, she shows us how we can see where those with “intense” personality traits fit on the spectrum. Once we understand that, we are better able to help people embrace their traits and develop one’s intense nature rather than try to stifle it.

This book will change the way you look at ADD for the better—open it up and learn more about:

  • The five intense personality traits and how they apply to individuals diagnosed with ADHD
  • Why the medical profession should seek alternative explanations for ADHD
  • Stories, practical steps, and daily practices for developing one's intense nature with the least amount of suffering

Readers of books such as Driven to DistractionHealing ADDDelivered from Distraction, or ADHD: Non-Medication Treatments and Skills for Children and Teens will enjoy The ADD Myth.
