The Hemochromatosis Help
Diet Book

Engage Life on Your Terms

Hemochromatosis Can Be Managed Successfully

I found your book extremely helpful and easy to follow. It’s eased the fear of dealing with iron overload and what to do on a daily basis. Your explanation of heme and non heme iron was a great help also. Knowing what blocks the absorption of iron and what increases its absorption is well explained also. Once you get a system down and do meal prep it becomes second nature.

Thanks so much for the vital information you have made available. There is so little information here in Australia & you are a real breath of hope to me. Your book takes it to the next level - you are the only person I know who has researched this critical information. You are changing lives with your research & love in what you do.

Holistic Help for Hemochromatosis by Dr. Eric Lewis, ND

An Extensive Guide to Help You Find Answers and Restore Health in Healing from Iron Overload

Hemochromatosis Diet Book

Millions of people from all over the world suffer, often unaware and often in silence, from a genetic condition called hemochromatosis or iron overload disorder.

For a condition so common, one might think that everyone would have heard of hemochromatosis, that it would be part of routine blood testing done by physicians, and that people with this disorder would have a great support network and understanding by their doctors, friends, and community.

And yet, in reality, hemochromatosis is frequently misdiagnosed by doctors or not diagnosed at all, so people often suffer for longer than they need to, feeling alone in their deteriorating health.

Fortunately, there is hope…

Balanced Nutrition for Hemochromatosis

If there’s one word above all others that represents the path to optimal health, it would be this: balance. Yet for those suffering from the underlying symptoms of hemochromatosis, balance can seem impossible. How can we balance a genetic disorder with our goal for a truly healthy life?

It was a question that I had to answer in my own life, and the answers led me to build a guide for everyone else silently suffering through a life where it feels like your own body is turning against you.

My hope is that I can provide a unique perspective by being both an expert in natural medicine and a patient with this condition.

My goal is to make this all make sense… so let’s get started!

The book is very useful, and it has a lot of quality information. It is necessary to read a lot of literature in order to combine the appropriate food in practice. In the book is all important information about the very nature of the illness, the medical approach, the combination of foods as well as the supplements that are very important. The book was written very well and it is very understandable. My congratulations!

It is very helpful since there is not a lot of info on the internet regarding hemochromatosis. I think all topics are covered and there is nothing confusing about the book. It is set out in terms that the everyday person can understand. You don't need to be a doctor to understand it.

27 pages of bibliographies really enhanced my confidence in the contents... I have memorized the do's and don'ts to be incorporated into my diet and have started to implement them. A very "readable" book. Nothing to change... Thank You for the book!!

It is VERY well written. You can understand it scientifically but at the same time, it is not written 'above your head'. In the future, I will highly suggest this book to newbies.

It is written in a very user-friendly authorative way: lots of results of the latest studies; effective and relative info for those who have read much about HHC, and for those who have not, and are very new to the malady; and written in a positive manner, with humour and hope - a unique and needed reference tool.

So all in all l am so very pleased a book has finally been written which can actually be so helpful with doing what we do every day which is eating!!!!
Holistic Help for Hemochromatosis Reader
I ordered this book for myself and my husband, who has hemochromatosis. Due to a myriad of medical info on this condition, and specialists giving us a confusing array of information, we were going crazy trying to find help. The initial pages of your book took this condition and made it most understandable! Fortunately I am married to a man who is willing to change his diet for his own good. The dietary choices are excellent, so the idea of starving on a hemochromatosis dietary plan is non-existent. Thank you for your naturopathic education, and your focus on this condition. The sharing of this knowledge really helps us consumers help loved ones to continue to enjoy life in spite of health conditions. Actually, this book was PERFECT--for us!!!!
What I like best about this book was that it was easy to read and understand for the lay person. I think this book will be helpful for me as a reference guide to turn too, and also for people in my life that would like to understand a bit more about this. I have been pretty aware of nutrition, and have been a life long vegetarian. However, I have now had to approach my nutrition differently because of this iron overload condition. I know the end result will be me feeling better so it is worth any efforts I have to make! I feel that this book had a really good holistic overview of hemochromatosis and plenty of info backed up by research and data. Thank you for taking the time to write this. As someone newly diagnosed this came out at the perfect time. I am grateful to have found your site!

A special thank you for the research you have done and for putting the information you have gleaned together into book form – an absolutely useful tool for all people diagnosed with genetic hemochromatosis.

I have always followed a natural health way of living and since my diagnosis I’ve collated much information from various sources, but to have it all together in one book will now make it so much easier for quick reference when needed.

Again, thank you.

The book is very comprehensive, detailed, organized, well-researched and easy to understand. Technical and scientific terms were explained in simple terms so that someone without a medical background could understand the concepts. I plan to read the book again and implement any ideas that I may have missed during the first reading.

The Take-Home Messages were helpful by condensing information into quick to read and easy to understand terms. The Bibliography was very thorough and detailed. It gives the reader assurance that the information contained in the book is well-researched.
