Summary

Why do some of us get sick with greater frequency than others? What makes us more susceptible to illness? Are we doomed to get sick when our coworkers and family members do? Is there a secret to staying healthy?

Joel Fuhrman, M.D., a leading expert and board-certified medical specialist in prevention and reversing disease, offers a comprehensive guide to superior health.

Based on the latest scientific research, Super Immunity shows us how we can become almost totally resistant to colds, influenza, and other infections.

The evidence is overwhelming: we can supercharge our immune system to protect our bodies against disease - everything from the common cold to cancer. Nutritional science has made phenomenal strides and discoveries in recent years, and when this new research is applied it enables us to seize control of our health like never before. Dr. Fuhrman explains this new science, providing everything you need to know to put this knowledge into action in your kitchen and in your life.

What we eat has everything to do with our health, and, unfortunately, too many of us are living with a severely depleted immune function. Our dietary choices are making us sicker, shortening our lives, and costing us billions of dollars in doctor visits, hospital stays, and prescription medications. But Dr. Fuhrman doesn’t believe more medical care is the answer. Rather, he explains the solution is to change the way we eat. The standard American diet is nutrient deficient. We are eating too many highly processed foods, foods with added sweeteners, and animal fats and protein. At the same time, we are not eating enough fruits, beans, seeds, and vegetables, which leaves us lacking in hundreds of the most important immune-building compounds. By changing our diets and combining foods that contain powerful immune-strengthening capabilities, we can prevent most common modern diseases.

Combining the latest data from clinical tests, nutritional research, and results from thousands of patients, Dr. Fuhrman proves that super immunity exists and is well within reach for those who choose it. We all have the ability to live healthier, stronger, and longer than ever before. Isn’t it time you discovered super immunity?

Life changing & Brilliant

Despite considering myself a healthy eater, this book by Dr Joel Fuhrman lit a switch in me to uplevel my nutritional intake by 200% compared with my non vegan diet. Had so much to learn from his experience, passion, scientific data and patient case studies that blew my mind! And surely will guarantee me and my hubby a vibrant life. Ned Sparrow does a great job reading.

A must read for the health conscious!!

Very detailed and well explained. If more people implemented what the book explains we would see much less sickness/disease in the world.

Essential reading

So much information and so well written, the author does not talk down to the reader or bombard us with too much medical terminology. Easy to follow and understand. Everyone should read it, we'd all be a lot healthier if we followed the guidelines. Brilliantly narrated by Ned Sparrow.
