This book was the brainchild of Dr. Angelo C. Rose. After fifty years of practicing holistic care, he wanted to leave his patients with a resource they could use as a guide in the natural healing of the more common health problems people typically face. This book provides a wealth of information and includes dietary guidelines, specific healing protocols, remedies, and valuable resources for myriad conditions. The book is designed to be used as a reference for people of all ages, even for those just looking to increase their knowledge of nutrition and diet.
Did you ever ask yourself why most insurance plans do not cover visits to alternative doctors for nutritional consultation and alternative therapies? Educating patients on healthy eating habits would cure many ills. Take gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD for example. With simple patient education on proper food combinations, nutritional education, supplementation, and a willing patient, this problem can be cured. No need for costly endoscopies, CT scans or medical procedures including surgery on the stomach. Even the supplements needed, in most cases just two, are temporary. A close look at family, friends, and acquaintances quickly shows the presence of many diseases and ailments. Both young and old as well as those in between are beset by poor health. Much of this is of our own doing. Supermarket shelves are laden with food products laced with harmful ingredients that prolong product life and shorten ours. The refining and processing of natural foods has created its own problems. The introduction of refined sugars and flours, canned goods, vegetable fats and polished rice have had a devastating effect on human health. Television advertising then entices us to take one drug after another in spite of harmful side effects.
Dr. Angelo C. Rose graduated from The Chiropractic Institute in New York City in 1956. A freak football injury during freshman year at William & Mary left him blind, but 8 months later, in a visit to a neighborhood chiropractor, his sight was restored. This life-changing event set him on the path to becoming a devoted believer in chiropractic and other alternative disciplines of healing. In his early years of practice he worked with pioneers in the alternative healthcare field, traveling to Texas to study at Parker College of Chiropractic and also to Georgia to learn from Sid Williams, founder of Life University. His 50-year practice of chiropractic with a concentration in nutrition began in Jersey City and eventually continued in Bergen County. He raised six healthy children, all without vaccinations or antibiotics. His knowledge and skill in diagnosis and holistic treatment of his patients was surpassed only by his faith in the human body's God-given innate intelligence. His unexpected passing in March of 2007 left a difficult void for his family and patients to fill, one which this book, which he began before his passing, attempts to fill. Dr. Christopher J. Amoruso is a graduate of the Rutgers College pre-med program. He attended the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic where he graduated in 2002 magna cum laude with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree as well as a Master's degree in Human Nutrition. During his first three years of chiropractic practice, he worked side by side with his father, Dr. Angelo Rose, absorbing and fine-tuning the skills his father was passing on to him. A voracious reader and student, Dr. Amoruso became a Certified Nutrition Specialist (C.N.S.) Certificant in July 2016. He continues to practice in Bergen County, NJ where he combines chiropractic with patient education in varying areas of healthcare including digestive/intestinal disorders, diabetes and autoimmune conditions. He is a member of the Weston A. Price Foundation and applies many of the traditional principles Dr. Price espoused in his practice. He and his family currently reside in New Jersey.
