A helpful addition for anybody taking a holistic approach to changing their relationship to alcohol.
As a functional medicine expert, I have seen first-hand the powerful grip alcohol can have on a person's wellbeing. In Scheller's groundbreaking new book, her easy-to-follow 4-week plan shows us how we can use food to reset our health and our relationship with alcohol. Drinking doesn't have to be all or nothing, but by understanding the impact alcohol has on our overall health, we can learn better ways to support our needs - physically and emotionally - so that we can walk away with a better sense of what truly fuels us.
This compelling book takes us through how our body changes 'on alcohol'. Alcohol replaces nutrient dense foods in our diet, causing nutritional deficiencies that cause us to crave more alcohol. This affects our brain, gut, ability to regulate glucose and insulin, and sense of self. Dr Scheller asks you to explore your own relationship with alcohol and your drinking triggers. She provides a 30-day plan of food, supplements and herbs, and lifestyle modifications which build your awareness and cut your desire to drink. Join Dr Scheller in this journey of self-discovery to live an alcohol-free life. When one door closes, another opens.
For too long, alcohol has been treated as a health tonic in the wellness space. Dr Brooke's book so eloquently shows us what alcohol really does to our bodies, gut, and overall wellbeing. When alcohol is no longer aligned with your values of a healthy lifestyle, pick up this book.
Dr Brooke perfectly captures the future of healthy living as a low-alcohol or alcohol free lifestyle. I continue to see this movement grow as my clients focus on quality, nourishing food and mindful or minimal drinking as a way to care for one's body and glow from the inside out.
Dr Brooke Scheller offers a very in depth approach to quitting drinking that is different from anything I've seen. As someone who is very passionate about the science side of things, I loved Brooke's spin on the science by approaching it from a nutrition standpoint. It's hard to choose a favourite section of this book - from the discussion on different supplements, to the drinker archetypes, to the recommendations on creating a dietary plan that works for you - How to Eat to Change How You Drink is a must-read for anyone who is evaluating their relationship with alcohol.
