More About the Author

Aimee E. Raupp is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of New York and is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in both acupuncture and Chinese herbology. She has been featured on ABC's "The View" and Fox 5's "Good Day New York". Aimee's first book, Chill Out And Get Healthy! was published in Summer 2009 by Penguin Group.

Aimee specializes in wide-variety of treatments with a focus on emotional and psychological disorders, reproductive health and gynecology as well as gastrointestinal disorders and facial rejuvenation acupuncture.

Aimee has a diverse academic background. After receiving her Bachelor's degree in biology at Rutgers University, she went on to work as a research scientist and take graduate level classes in neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego. Feeling ethically and morally challenged by the western medical field and intrigued by alternative medicine, Aimee quickly changed course and pursued higher education in the field of Traditional Oriental Medicine.

Aimee received her Master's of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, California. While completing this 4-year Masters of Science degree, Aimee had the opportunity to intern with seasoned acupuncturists and herbalists. This combination of academics and hands on learning has given Aimee a thorough understanding of both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology.

As a result of Aimee's intense training, she has a vast understanding of the functional aspects of the human being and the imbalances created by disease.

Aimee has received special training in fertility enhancement acupuncture and acupuncture facial rejuvenation.

Aimee is currently in private practice in both Manhattan and Nyack, NY.

This is a great book with a lot of valuable information. It is structured really well, and definitely is not a chore to read. I do think some sections could have used some more explanation - for example, the parts about the dangers of soy still left me with a lot of questions (e.g., is it still okay to eat edamame? miso soup?). But, I've been a patient of Aimee's for years, and this book still taught me some things I didn't know. My boyfriend and I just threw out his Flaxseed granola yesterday because it contained soy protein isolate, unbeknownst to us!

My main issue with the book, as others mentioned here, is the repetition of the incredibly annoying phrases like "Come on, girls!" and "Honey." I gave the book to a friend, and she had the same reaction - "Awesome book, but the writer should stop with those annoying phrases." Since I know Aimee does not speak this way in normal life, I am guessing that someone told her to write this way, and it's a shame. In my opinion, it really takes away from otherwise great information with studies to back it up. The book is written in such an approachable, easy to understand way, that it truly does not need these extra "Girls" and "Honey" openers.

Regardless, I highly recommend this book to anyone. It's especially important for females going through any kind of health issue, but there is also GREAT information for regular women and men.

I loved this book! For those that are overwhelmed by the dos and donts of nutrition and healthy living, Aimee breaks it down and makes it very simple. She explains HOW and WHY foods affect or bodies and health for the good and bad. Addressing why organic?, how to identify harmful ingredients and the alias' companies use to slip these things in our food, sample menus and lots of helpfull hints and resources for products and info. Its a quick layman read jam pack with valuable,obtainable information. Highly recommend it, whether a beginner or a guru, there is something here for you.

Overall I enjoyed the book. The information was repeated several times throughout various chapters but you could see how connected the various body systems are. I got extremely tired of the "Girl" comments and the "$#@(*$#" explicits. It took away from the professionalism of the writing. However, that aside, I especially liked the food suggestions she gives you and information on eating more healthily for our bodies. Finally! Someone who's proclaiming soy and isolates we eat in the US are not good for us! I like her focus on women's health coming from the inside out. What we put in is what we put out. She goes into a few different skin types for beauty regimens, which I appreciated. I read the book twice and have started incorporating some suggestions in my daily life. Glad I purchased the book!

I gave this book 4 stars for 2 reasons. 1, I feel like the author tries a little too hard to connect to her female audience and it's a bit of a turn off. She constantly uses phrases like 'Girl', 'Let's go Ladies', and on one page, she used the phrase 'Come on girls' three times. It's just a bit too much. 2nd, I don't like the fact that she promotes eating meat over being vegetarian. It's completely possible to get all your necessary nutrients without eating meat. In fact, it's healthier. Plus, I feel that she contradicts herself when she talks about eating a 'nondead' diet, but isn't meat from a slaughtered, dead animal?

Overall, she offers a lot of good information that is straightforward. I recommend reading it, but keep an open mind. Don't let it sway you too much if you're committed to not eating meat.

Format: Paperback
This is the BEST book ever. While it is written to women, I still think men should read it too! It is eye opening and explains what you should and shouldn't put in your body and debunks a bunch of hyped up food that we shouldn't be ingesting. It also tells you how to cure and fix and improve all areas of your life so that your body and mind are working the way they should. It is written in a fun "girlfriend to girlfriend" tone and I just couldnt' put the book down.

I have reread it several times and I reference it ALL the time for all health issues. I have given up white sugar and white flour for good (who wants to poison themselves with arsenic!!!! - Not me. And who knew that was in the white stuff) and I feel great.

I've bought this book for several people and recommend it all the time.

What I love about it too is that it explains how a lot of the food and products we use really mess up our bodily systems and disrupts our hormones.

What this book isn't: a boring, scientific hard to read book. Aimee makes reading about health so fun and makes you want to jump into action and get rid of all the crap in your house.

I also LOVE that Aimee is so accessible. I've emailed her some questions and she's always emailed me right back.

If you aren't sure if you'll like this book, just buy it....you can always return it. BUT, I have a feeling that you won't return this...you will devour it!

This book does offer some really good information. It keeps you interested, and doesn't feel like a chore to read. It does get repetitive in places, especially with all the "come on ladies", "lets go girls", and "ctfo" ( chill the bleep out). If you can get past that, and some of the authors very detailed descriptions about certain bodily functions, than this is a very good book. I never even thought about all of the things in our everyday lives that can take a toll our health. I would recommend this as a worthwhile read.
