"In The Bitter Prescription, author Dr. Jennifer Stagg clearly draws on her backgrounds in biochemistry, nutrition, and naturopathic medicine to wonderfully weave a guide to living longer and living better. All of the most important elements are there, including prioritizing the quality and composition of the food that we eat, the regenerative powers of proper sleep, the importance of the kind of inner dialogue and thoughts that permeate our brains, and the importance of social networks. This is no fad diet book, but instead a comprehensive sensible lifestyle road map to adding years to life, and life to years."
– Dr. David Brady, Author of "The Fibro Fix"
"The Bitter Prescription is built on the scientific research and traditional aspects of how taste primes our body's response to health. This is such a fascinating guide that brings together not just the culmination of what you need to know from the research in this emerging area, but also the emotional-mental aspects of how we might manifest bitter in the psyche. Truly, a mind-body guide to living with food bitters and having less bitterness in one's life. A must read!"
– Deanna Minich, PhD, IFMCP, CNS, Author of "Whole Detox" and "The Rainbow Diet"
"The Bitter Prescription is just what the doctor ordered as the bitter truth of aging hits us. From digestion and the fascinating science of bitter foods to advice on exercise, stress, and hormones, Dr. Stagg creates a timely and easy-follow-guide that is sweet news."
