  • CONCEIVING HEALTHY BABIES

    Healthy babies don't just happen. The lifestyle of the prospective parents is a crucial factor in promoting fertility and ensuring a successful pregnancy. But the average North American diet is saturated with processed foods, and environmental toxins are rampant. We must take responsibility for what we put into and onto our bodies to create optimum conditions for the childbearing year.

    • Understanding, accepting and celebrating our own bodies
    • Basing our diets on organic, nutrient-dense foods that have been traditionally prepared
    • Using whole plants in their original form for their medicinal benefits

    Packed with detailed information on hundreds of different herbs, with a focus on their roles in building healthy babies, this comprehensive manual is a road map to well-being. The reference guide is rounded out by complete information on herbal use before, during and post-pregnancy, and special attention is paid to supporting nursing and lactation. Whether you have experienced challenges in conceiving or just want to ensure that your pregnancy is as natural and uncomplicated as possible, Conceiving Healthy Babies is an indispensable guide.

  • CONSULTING THE GENIUS OF THE PLACE

    Locavore leaders such as Alice Waters, Michael Pollan and Barbara Kingsolver all speak of the need for sweeping changes in how we get our food. A longtime leader of this movement is Wes Jackson, who for decades has taken it upon himself to speak for the land, to speak for the soil itself. Here, he offers a manifesto toward a conceptual revolution: Jackson asks us to look to natural ecosystems—or, if one prefers, nature in general—as the measure against which we judge all of our agricultural practices.

    Jackson believes the time is right to do away with annual monoculture grains, which are vulnerable to national security threats and are partly responsible for the explosion in our health care costs. Soil erosion and the poisons polluting our water and air—all associated with agriculture from its beginnings—foretell a population with its natural fertility greatly destroyed.

    In this eloquent and timely volume, Jackson argues we must look to nature itself to lead us out of the mess we’ve made. The natural ecosystems will tell us, if we listen, what should happen to the future of food.
