Discover the healing power of food using over 100 ancient recipes and ingredients adapted for the modern world, from the author of The Sacred Science.

Satisfy your tastebuds, appetite, and soul with this inspiring collection of easy-to-make, flavorful recipes. Nick Polizzi grew up in a restaurant and has spent much of his life traveling the world, studying traditional healing foods from Northern Africa all the way to remote regions of the Amazon rainforest. In their home kitchen, Nick and his wife, Michelle, have translated this hard-earned culinary wisdom into everyday meals meant for sharing.

Every recipe meets three fundamental criteria: 1) it has ingredients that can be traced back at least 500 years, 2) it has well-documented health benefits, and 3) it's absolutely delicious. Accessible and easy-to-follow, this cookbook focuses on:

  • Soups and stews
  • Medicinal spices and sauces
  • Fermented superfoods
  • Dried and cured snacks
  • Nutrient-dense proteins
  • Savory mushroom dishes
  • Greens, petals, and grasses
  • Forgotten ancient grains
  • Enzyme-rich breads
  • Healing elixirs and spirits
  • Teas and tonics

Appealing to a broad palate, this full-color cookbook provides tips and substitutions for adjusting to different needs, including gluten-free and vegan diets.
Nick Polizzi is the founder of The Sacred Science, director of the feature documentary by the same name, and author of the book based on the film. He is also the host and executive producer of a number of documentary series, including The Healing Kitchen, Remedy: Ancient Medicine For Modern Illness, and Proven: Healing Breakthroughs Backed By Science. Ever since he cured himself of a debilitating illness using a traditional therapy, he has been traveling the world and documenting forgotten healing methods.

Michelle Polizzi is a ceramic and botanical artist, a published photographer and illustrator, and mother of two big-hearted, earth-loving boys. She is the co-creator of The Sacred Science and creator of Earth Magic, Mother Nature’s Guide for Creativity + Wonder. When she isn’t creating or playing in nature with her family, you can find Michelle getting her hands dirty nurturing the plants in her herb and dye gardens.
