Selene River Press is a publishing company that specializes in holistic nutrition education. Our philosophy is rooted in the work of Dr. Royal Lee, who devoted his career to warning society that most modern disease is caused by malnutrition, which in turn is caused by industrially grown, processed foods that are deficient in vitamins and nutrients.

A storehouse of holistic nutrition education for both holistic practitioners and their patients, SRP provides not only contemporary resources but also nutrition research from the early 20th century—a time when vitamins were first being discovered and the association between good food and good health was first being proven.

At the SRP Historical Archives, you will find hundreds of free, groundbreaking articles by Dr. Lee and his contemporaries. The Historical Archives feature some of the original research on trophotherapy, or the science of healing by applied nutrition.

We continue Dr. Lee’s work by publishing easy-to-understand nutrition information for practitioners, patients, self-healthers, and all those who want to take their health into their own hands by applying real food to real health problems.

This is exactly what Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride does in her book Gut and Psychology Syndrome. Many of our publications support the healing that Dr. Campbell-McBride champions in the GAPS diet.

Here are just a few of the resources from SRP that help readers understand why whole food nutrition matters and how traditional cooking techniques help bring nutritious food into the kitchen:
