Testimonials on My Book

1 Comment


Here are a few of the Testimonials from my book:

“You’ll enjoy this book. I gave Scott George’s book and he loved it. gave it to Nancy who’s been reading it. she wants to buy it because she likes it so much and wants to undeline certain passages. She was at our lawyer’s yesterday and was reading it. Our company lawyer was familiar with the book. how about that?” -Ray

“I want to say thank you for opening my eyes. I’ve been stubborn about what I eat. During my vacation, I finished your book. WOW!! You’ve opened my eyes wide. Just wanted to let you know – I am listening………..” – Kar

“August 2011 I was surprisingly diagnosed with MS. I am 41 years old with an active 3 1/2 year old son, I was afraid to go to sleep for many nights fearing that when I woke up I would not be able to walk. I cried day in and day out. I did not understand why this had happened to me. A very good friend gave me the book her brother wrote “Food for Thought”. I pray and talk to God just about every day and let him know how thankful I am that my family and son are healthy and that my MS is not worse than it is. I do know there are many people worse off than me but I waited a long time for my son and now I feel bad that I can not run and play with him like he wants me to and how I want to. So much of what I have read makes a lot of sense and has made me change the way I eat, I won’t lie not 100% yet. But I ordered a HealthMaster mixer and started to juice a lot of green leafy vegetables and fruit, which in the past I never ate. I have cut down on my sugar and milk intake. I try to think positive and tell my body that the MS must leave and that my body needs to use the new food I am giving it to change what is happening. I will be honest this part has not been easy for me but with good friends and family to lean on I am getting by. I don’t know if all of this will work but I do know that I have now read other books along the same line and eating fruits and vegetables have worked for other people, so I am going to do what ever I can to help rid my body of this awful disease. I am very thankful to my friend Kathy and her brother George, they helped me take my first step toward a healthier life not only for me but for my son.” -Dawn

“‘Genes simply respond to data coming from our environment.’ ~ pg. 42, ‘Food for Thought’ is a very interesting book that deals with the issue of preventing disease instead of just treating disease. Most doctors won’t tell how to avoid illness, they only treat the symptoms – most times not even curing the disease. George J. Febish and Jo Anne Oxley believe the right course is to eat a vegetarian diet. They also encourage the reader to stay positive, be forgiving and to make lifestyle changes that will lead to a healthier life. Getting cancer, being obese, having heart problems and getting diabetes does not have to be in your future. The authors give tips and tools for changing your way of thinking, therefore changing your life. If you loved biology in school that will help you while reading this book since then you will be able to visualize what the authors are saying. This book also discusses Nutrigenomics and Epigenetics.” -The Rebecca Review

“This is a must read if you are serious about making positive changes to promote a healthy lifestyle.”

Food for Thought!

Leave a comment


My book, Food for Thought, explains how we have evolved into the creatures we are today. How our cells work together to form the human we are. It explains how epigenetics“fires” our DNA, turning genes ON or OFF. Sometimes this is a good thing and sometimes it is not. When it’s not a good thing, we get sick. epigenetics is a relatively new science. Every university is studying it now. The larger universities have epigenetic departments. What parts of our environment “fire” these genes is a major ongoing study. We know it is the food we eat, how we think and believe, the stress in our lives and exercise. Nutrigenomics is the study of which foods cause which epigenetic changes. This is an even newer science and still in its infancy.

The book is targeted to the average person on the street and is easy to read and understand. The book is available online at Barnes & Noble and Amazon in Hard and soft covers as well as eBook. Let me know what you think.

7 Good Reasons to go Organic!

This article lists the reasons organic is good for you. We speak a lot about organic and plant-based foods in this BLOG. They are important to normal health. Sure you know a ninety year old that doesn’t eat organic and only eats meat and potatoes. The truth is if we put 100 of these people in a study most would develop health issues and some serious ones like cancer or heart disease. Just like smoking, we all know someone or heard of someone that smoked to their 90’s but the simple fact is smoking causes cancer.

Why do we get Addicted?

Americans seem to be addicted on everything. People still smoke, they are also addicted to sugars, fast food, fried foods, fats, etc. All of which are bad for us and we know it. So why do we still do it? I think our brains have an incredible ability to stay alive. We typically don’t think we are going to die until we have a disease. Young people never think about mortality, nor should they. We all believe we are immortal at least for the near future. This is why people smoke or eat poorly. We don’t really believe it will affect us. If it does down the road, science will have a cure for it. I have news for you … THERE ARE NO CURES BEING DEVELOPED! A cure to cancer, heart disease, Parkinson, Alzheimer’s, etc. would mean a loss of billions to the drug industry. So it is very unlikely any cures will be discovered soon. They would love a pill that will keep you alive but not cure the disease.

It would seem we don’t really care about our health or at least don’t think about it until it is too late. It is sad since so much suffering and death could be avoided with simple life-style changes.

A Time to Rethink Our Lives

We have been talking about the epigenetic influences that affect our health:

  1. Diet
  2. Exercise
  3. Positive Thinking
  4. Belief
  5. Stress

We Americans seem to break all the rules. We eat junk (non nutritious food), smoke, don’t exercise, think negative, believe we will all get sick as we get older and live highly stressed lives.  I was recently in Italy and they think and live so different from us. They eat more nutritious than we do, they do smoke more than us, they exercise as part of the cities they live in (many hills and steps), they are positive thinkers, they believe they are healthy and happy, and they lower their stress by living fun lives.

We have to learn to eat mbetter, exercise better, think and believe better and lower our stress more. This will keep us younger, happier and in love with life.

Disease Epidemics

Disease Epidemics (Photo credit: Travis S.)

I remember reading a saying, “Life is not about the number of breaths we take but by the number of moments that take our breath away.” In health this can be stated as, “Health is not measured in the diseases we beat but by the number we avoid altogether.” We are trained by our healthcare to believe we will all get sick because we are living longer. Nothing can be farther from the truth! We can avoid diseases but it takes knowledge and hard work. The result is a life of health. It’s your choice, choose wisely.

Healthy can be obtained by:

  1. Diet
  2. Lowered stress
  3. Exercise
  4. Positive thinking
  5. Belief that you can be healthy
