After realizing that the NC program at Bauman wasn't right for me, I've decided to sell my textbooks.
All of the books I have are the current, up-to-date editions that an incoming NC student will need to complete the program.
They are in great shape, and because I left the program very early on, most of them weren't opened and used! I am willing to part with them for less than I payed, so that you can save some money and I can get some of my investment back.
The first 3 books listed, and the pH testing strip (Hydrion Paper) are the first books issued to incoming students and charged under "Materials," totaling $132.50. I am asking $125 for these (save 7.50).
Foundation of Nutrition Book - (Bauman price: 75)
Foundation of Nutrition Workbook - (25)
Flavors of Health Book (25)
Hydrion Paper (7.50)
Bauman Total: 132.50 - Used price: 125.00
Additional Required Texts:
Flavors of Health Cookbook - 20$ (29.95 New)
The Clinician's Handbook (Murray and Pizzorno) - 45$ (49.95 New)
A-Z Guide to Drug-Herb-Vitamin Interactions (Gaby) - 10$ (15-20 New)
Clinical Nutrition - A Functional Approach (Bland, et. all) 60$ (65 New)
Total: 135 (Save 30$ compared to new price)
If you purchase ALL books, I will give a larger discount. Instead of 270 total, I'll ask for 250.
My name is Morgan Dees, I live in Santa Cruz, California.
If you have questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please title email "Bauman Textbooks"
Thank you, and have a beautiful day!
Wow Jodi! This sounds exciting. I know that reading your husbands blogs in the past were very entertaining and exciting. It definitely takes an Eating for Health lifestyle to maximize your success on such an endeavor!

It is possible to get a crisp banana chip with your dehydrator (temporarily, that is right after you take them out of the dehydrator). Unfortunately, even if a veggie or fruit chip has a crunchy texture after being dehydrated or baked, it will soften the longer you keep them. Thinner slices stay crisper longer, sometimes up to three days. : ) I still highly recommend the dehydrator. It is a great and versatile tool.

No, this isn't about chiropractic or a broken back. This is the title of the book my husband Scott just finished writing about our 2012 3 month epic pedaling adventure from Jasper, Alberta, Canada to the Mexican border in New Mexico. With our 55 lb faithful hound Django (the photo of him on the back cover is worth the price of admission). The book is self-published but is well-written and well edited, and not to sound too biased, but I think Scott might actually be a good writer, judging by what others have said about his previous book about his solo ride across the country.
So, if any of you who know me have ever wondered to exactly what lengths we're willing to go to hurt, suffer, and have our very special kind of fun, this should take care of your needs. I refer to our adventures as the Eating for Health lifestyle. Honestly, who could do stuff like this at our ages (50s & 60s) without good nourishment?

Hi Miriam. Glad you are working on detox with your clients! When I introduce the idea of detox to my clients, I try to establish the idea that detox is a process you want to do gradually, and repeat cyclically. Depending on the client's nutritional status, degree of vitality (or lack of it) and the severity of their condition, I OFTEN start with Round One of the detox process as a food-only detox, adding plenty of the antioxidant culinary herbs, along with some gentle herbal teas for extra support. Just by getting people off their damaging foods, increasing hydration and adding more vegetables you are starting the detox process. They will form some new habits that hopefully they will carry forward. If Round One goes well then the next time we will go deeper using herbs and nutrients.
If you do not trust the commercial products that are available, perhaps you can tap into the traditional healing community where you live. You might learn of local herbs that are used for detox and make some good connections at the same time.
