Acclaimed author David Zulberg is an ACE-certified fitness specialist and health coach, and is considered one of the foremost experts in Maimonides’ medical works. He turned to the forgotten wisdom of Maimonides to find consensus about ideal human nutrition, and both emotional and physical health while incorporating the latest dietary and fitness guidelines. His bestselling book The Life-Transforming Diet is currently in its 7th printing.
Featured as a guest blogger last week for the Jewish Book Council, Zulberg talks about his journeys beginning with researching and writing his book, leading to his exploration of the herbal aspects of Maimonides’ works (which included trips to India and China) and continuing on to developing his own kosher herbal remedies:
“After the book was published, I pursued my interest in the herbal aspect of Rambam’s writings. Besides writing about nutritional and lifestyle habits, Rambam details herbal remedies extensively in his medical works…I succeeded in communicating with the most renowned expert in the translation of Maimonides’ works from the original Arabic and other manuscripts of that era…I researched the best herbal ingredients for an appetite suppressant based on Maimonides’ nutritional suggestions and the most current herbal scientific research…To make the formulations kosher one needs the actual ingredients to be sourced kosher and the actual encapsulation needs to be supervised.”
