Hereditary hemochromatosis is one of the most common – and most commonly misdiagnosed – genetic conditions. If you suffer from this condition, you may also have a great deal of confusion about what to eat. Conflicting advice can make you feel as if you’ll never be able to enjoy food again. It doesn’t have to be that way.
Seeing her husband face similar challenges, Dr. Kristina Lewis was inspired to learn how to combine both her research and cooking skills to help him. Her training as a naturopathic doctor, love of creating delicious meals, and desire to help her husband has inspired her to share what she’s learned with the world through this unique resource guide.

Excellent cookbook, the best one out there. I have learned so much about what is good and what is bad and the foods that should not be combined and why. I like how I can take a recipe and modify a ingredient or two and you have a different meal.

In This Book, You Will Discover:
The other Hemochromatosis cookbook I bought does little of this and the recipes are not the types of food we eat. I was sorry I bought this other cookbook as I will never really use it. Your cookbook is very useful and I thank you for writing it. You did a great job.
I loved all your explanations. I want to learn all I can about eating real food again. The pictures are great.

About the Author
Dr. Kristina Lewis, ND
Dr. Kristina Lewis is a naturopathic physician in practice with her husband, Dr. Eric Lewis, in Asheville, North Carolina. When her husband discovered he had hereditary hemochromatosis and founded the website HemochromatosisHelp.com, she became very involved in researching, writing, and teaching about this condition both as a health-care practitioner and as a concerned wife.
After the publication of Dr. Eric’s book, Holistic Health for Hemochromatosis, it became clear that a companion guide with recipes and cooking instruction was what the readers of Hemochromatosis Help needed next. As someone who naturally loves to cook and who finds inventing tasty and healthy recipes a fun challenge, Dr. Kristina decided to take on the challenge of creating a cookbook for hemochromatosis from a holistic perspective. Little did she realize at the time what an involved project this would become! More than two years and countless hours later, she is excited to finally share her recipe inspirations with the world in Cooking for Hemochromatosis.
Dr. Kristina Lewis is an honors graduate holding a doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona. In her private practice she works with women on a wide range of health issues, including iron overload. She and Dr. Eric have two young children and she is fully enjoying being a mother as well as a doctor!
