The book is a big list of disorders in alphabetical order, from acne, actinic keratoses, aging, and alcohol through flatulence and halitosis to vaginal yeast infection. For each one there are several pages outlining the features of the disease and how diet plays a role. Rosenfeld talks about what is known to work, what might work, and what probably won't work even if you thought it would.
Straightforward, not comprehensive, but clear in what it does cover. At least one or two useful suggestions are given for each disorder. And from a reputable source.

This was my first time to read a book by Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld and I was pleasantly surprised! I found this book to be user-friendly and sensible in its approach to how one might use food as an added treatment for ailments, without negating the usefulness of modern medications and other treatment modalities. I think the best part is that Dr. Rosenfeld avoids outlandish promises. As a matter of fact, he offers his information as just that -- "food" for thought. He is consistent in advising readers to converse with one's own health care provider about the information he is suggesting. And Rosenfeld is careful to tell the reader when he has limited knowledge or available information, about a certain vitamin, mineral or food and its relationship to the particular ailment being discussed. The book is formatted in a way that allows one to flip around, not necessarily reading the chapters in order. The author also repeats information when it is relevant to several diseases, so as not to assume the reader has read any previous chapters where the data appeared. Thank you, Dr. Rosenfeld, for offering up some palatable information that is sound, moderate and sensible, in a non-judgmental forum.

EXCELLENT, excellent, excellent! A common-sense approach to controlling your own ills without resorting to pills. I have purchased many copies to give to friends and the results have always been positive. What you eat is the basis of your health. Remember,(just like computers), garbage in = garbage out. Look up your personal problem, then read how to take care of it.

My doc recommended I read this book to help with a few long-term medical conditions. He spoke very highly of the author and lives by the dietary suggestions himself. Great book and definitely helpful, simple, common sense advice for anyone looking to improve their health through diet. Doesn't cover every condition known to mankind but a lot of common conditions are listed. Food is medicine and this book is a practical guide!

Great delivery time, and excellent condition. Love Dr. Rosenfeld's delivery, a very basic one that many younger Doctors should read to really learn how to treat patients, not just SEE patients as a number.

I love Dr. Rosenfield, but this is a useless book. Sorry, doc.
