In New York Times bestseller, The Kind Diet, actress, activist, and committed conservationist Alicia Silverstone shares the insights that encouraged her to swear off meat and dairy forever, and outlines the spectacular benefits of adopting a plant-based diet, from effortless weight loss to clear skin, off-the-chart energy, and smooth digestion. She explains how meat, fish, milk, and cheese-the very foods we've been taught to regard as the cornerstone of good nutrition-are actually the culprits behind escalating rates of disease and the cause of dire, potentially permanent damage to our ecology. Yet going meat and dairy-free doesn't mean suffering deprivation; to the contrary, The Kind Diet cookbook introduces irresistibly delicious food that satisfies on every level-it even includes amazing desserts to keep the most stubborn sweet tooth happy. Alicia also addresses the nutritional concerns faced by many who are new to a plant-based diet, and shows how to cover every nutritional base, from protein to calcium and beyond. Whether your goal is to drop a few pounds, boost your energy and metabolism, or simply save the world, Alicia provides the encouragement, the information, and the tools you need to make the transition to a plant-based diet deliciously empowering. Children with autism have nutrition problems and gastrointestinal issues more often than their typical peers (click here for rebuttal to the recent study in Pediatrics that claims this is not true). This makes their developmental challenges even deeper. All children benefit from being in normal nutrition status, and NCPA works to restore it for those with autism. Decades of reliable data illustrate that even small shortages for various nutrients can impair learning, growth, and development in typical children. NCPA troubleshoots this, and restores normal appetite, normal absorption, normal bowel function, and normal status for individual nutrients. When these things are in tact, all children function better, learn better, feel better, and grow better. NCPA restores adequate and appropriate sources for calories, proteins, fats, and carbohydrates; corrects essential mineral deficits; chooses which vitamins might best suit your child for therapeutic dosing; balances bowel bacteria; and can refer to qualified professionals to help your child use gentle methods to remove toxic heavy metals like lead, mercury, or aluminum. This care can accommodate users of a variety of special diets. Ultimately, NCPA's goal is to help your child tolerate a less restricted diet with no ill effects. If your child has used a special diet for more than a year and is still requiring a complex set of dietary restrictions, supplements, and biomedical treatments, something may be missing from your intervention.
