Your body was designed to fight disease, and we have underestimated how foods can be used to amplify this power.

A guest expert on The Dr Oz Show, CNN and MSNBC, Dr Li has also been featured in USA Today, TIME, The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, O magazine, and Wine Spectator, and on NPR.

“Eat to Beat Disease is a trailblazing book. Author, world-renowned physician, and medical scientist Dr. William Li explains how we have the power to help control our own health destiny by making decisions that help the body heal itself. Dr Li describes how more than two hundred foods amplify our body’s defences, which can result in beneficial health outcomes. Eat to Beat Disease is a must read — I strongly endorse it.”
–Dean Ornish, MD
“Unlike so many books that turn people away from the foods they enjoy, Eat to Beat Disease shows us how the foods we love actually support our well-being and vitality. I recommend that every health seeker read this new classic and tell their friends and family about it.”
–Mark Hyman, MD Director, Cleveland Clinic Center
“An ode to one of life’s greatest pleasures and a convincing case for a healthy appetite. This book will entertain, educate, devour, and then empower you. Dr. William Li teaches us that we have radically underestimated our own power to transform and restore our health. This is a fascinating story of the power of food, a reflection on what we mean by health, and a practical tool with the 5x5x5 framework to make sure we are around to enjoy life’s pleasures for as long as possible.”
