Living Health

Harvey Diamond, Author, Harvey, Author, Marilyn Diamond, With Grand Central Publishing $24 (446p) ISBN 978-0-446-51281-7
Implementing the principles of Natural Hygiene, a branch of nutritional science, the Diamonds present a nontraditional approach to ""the entire vast subject of health care,'' which also engendered their bestselling diet book Fit for Life. They advocate the avoidance of proteins and starches at the same meal, the consumption of only fresh fruit and juice until noon and the use of the ``ovulation method'' of natural contraception. They stress the dangers of animal and dairy products (both cause osteoporosis, they claim), fluoridated tap water, irradiated food and certain cleaning fluids, soaps and deodorants. Also included are breathing exercises (alternate nostril breathing, they maintain, will balance the two sides of the brain because each nostril connects to the opposite side of the brain), yoga and workout routines, and recipes that leniently include chicken. Despite the redundancy of their philosophy, the railing against dietitians and the extreme approach to healthful living, readers undoubtedly will find much of the information presented here to be well documented and useful.
