Recognizing that no one diet is perfect for everyone, self-publishing Outskirts Press authors, Emanuel Barling, Jr., Esq. and Ashley F. Brooks, R.N., help their readers identify the food intolerances and allergies specific to them in their latest book, Mannie’s Diet and Enzyme Formula.

The authors had always thought that they were “eating healthy” per all the Food Pyramid charts they’d seen posted on doctor’s walls advocating fruits and vegetables. Then they started getting ill. The healthy food they were eating was killing them.

They learned that all these so-called healthy foods were polluted with herbicides, pesticides, preservatives and dangerous chemical food additives hidden in “clean labels.” No wonder they were feeling sick. Illness and disease are hastened by, and sometimes even caused by, these dangerous chemicals that now widely contaminate Americans’ diets leading to cancer, diabetes, heart disease and obesity.

Citing more than fifteen hundred medical treatises, journals, surveys, tests and periodicals in their book’s reference section, the authors provide the source material on every theory and opinion so that readers can read them for themselves.



Emanuel Barling, Jr. is a lawyer, author and businessman who spent more than thirty years practicing law in the Greater Los Angeles Area. In the 1970’s, Mr. Barling served as in-house counsel to two of the first HMOs in Los Angeles, including one that treated more than 13,000 patients a month. Mr. Barling actively participated in the management of these clinics as well as convalescent hospitals. This included his reviewing all medical matters from PSRO (Professional Standards Review Organizations) and all physician utilization, interviewing doctors and specialists, and evaluating malpractice claims.

Ashley F. Brooks is a third generation nurse who has extensive experience in emergency rooms and psychiatric wards as well as in nutritional, holistic and environmental medicine. She credits Dr. Theron Randolph, Dr. Linus Pauling’s Vitamin C theories, juicing and the vitamin and preventative nutrition theories of her mother, a trained nutrition specialist, with saving her life from her own serious illness. Ms. Brooks is also a singer and actress and has performed in independent feature films, television commercials, print modeling and local and touring theater companies.
