  • "standout" healing foods
  • how to design a diet for your individual optimal health, taking into account special dietary needs such as those of women, children, vegetarians, and others
  • food combining
  • diet-based healing techniques such as juicing, fasting, and detoxifying
  • how to avoid potential dietary dangers, including threats to water safety, foodborne diseases, food additives, food irradiation, antibiotics, genetically engineered foods, and undesirable substances such as caffeine, cholesterol, and sugar.

    While not a cookbook, Prescription for Dietary Wellness also includes a number of easy, wholesome recipes and advice on cooking methods. It is a complete, practical guide to eating for good health.

it will be so unfair of me, after what Almight God has used Priest Babaka to bless me and my family, I didn’t post of his good works on net for people to see, Priest Babaka helped me to get pregnant, after 8years with no child, I have search every means for me to have a baby of our own. but all to no avail, then one day I came across Priest Babaka mail and contact on how he has help people to get pregnant, then I decided to try and see if he can also help me, so I contact him and he told me that my problem was solved, him say that i will have my baby soon, if i did everything him ask of me. I doubted him at first but I decided to believe him and see if it will work. to my surprised and just as the great man said it really happen. And me and my husband are living happily like never before. All the thanks goes to Priest Babaka. His mail: babaka.wolf@gmail.com contact him now
