Empty Plate

By Tammera J Karr, PhD and Kathleen Bell, RN

At no other time has it been more important to examine the way we care for ourselves and others. Our physical, mental, and spiritual health is being tested at a high level. At times, life feels beyond full and without goodness. By pausing long enough to explore aspects of our lives that we often take for granted, we can begin to see patterns steeped in tradition that support health at a cellular level.

Tammera Karr and Kathleen Bell have taken that pause to show us how the foods we eat, the thoughts we think, and the sounds and colors that surround us affect our well-being. Based on clinical experience, research, personal reflection, and a passion for advancing healthcare perspectives, this book is a guide for nourishing mind, body, and spirit by integrating today’s rapidly changing landscape with nature’s wisdom.

In our immense capacity to care for others, this book will challenge you to examine your plate, scrape it clean if needed, and begin to fill it with the understanding that the mind and body are inseparable. To nourish one means to nourish the other, allowing us to heal.

Perfect for those in health care, education, and proactively minded. Hundreds of current scientific references, fascinating historical tidbits, thought-provoking quotes.
