Book Description

Everywhere you look around, you find sick and fat people around you. At least that is my experience. In most cases the only solution that is provided to people with a health condition, is taking a pill (or even worse several different pills) with countless side effects. The only thing those drugs do, is to mask the symptoms, but almost never provide a cure in itself.

When I was diagnosed with heart disease several months ago my whole world seemed to break apart. Thankfully my doctor is not the type to just prescribe a pill and send me away. He told me that I needed to change my diet to see any long lasting improvement and maybe even get off the drugs, he had just prescribed to me. I was to try to introduce lots of fruits and veggies into my daily meal plan and kick all the ready-made and processed foods out of my pantry.

After the initial shock was gone, I started my own research on how to eat healthy. To my big surprise I found that many people seemed to have cured serious conditions like heart disease or even cancer by changing their eating habits and lifestyle. This book is the accumulation of my experiences, so you can see what worked for me on my journey to a heart disease free life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Do Your Own Research January 13, 2013
By tmtrvlr
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Care must be taken when reading a book that makes health claims by someone who is not a healthcare professional. Although the book does have a disclaimer that it is for "educational purposes" and "not to be considered medical advice", she makes several claims about diseases that simply are not true.

I was especially interested in reading the Growing Your Own Herbs and Sprouts section, but that turned out to be 4 or 5 paragraphs about her failed attempts and then her on-going attempt to grow sprouts. There are mentions of things she has seen on TV that she has tried for "gut flora" and a type of food fermentation, but no real instructions.

I understand her own struggles with health made her want to help others. We all want to eat right and be health, but do a little research before following someone else's experience.

I loved the personal perspective to this book. So many books out there are either clinical, or just out to make book sales. Ms. Whittaker came from the position of someone who had to make a change, and pills weren't going to be it.

I have researched healthy eating myself, and have even reviewed other books. And, as such, I like to have many perspectives on what works and what doesn't. Ms. Whittaker shares more than label reading and cutting the sugar. She also shares information about such things as pH levels...which I haven't seen much before.

Ms. Whittaker also discusses boosting your immunity, benefits of juices and smoothies, exercise and even growing your own herbs and spices...because they taste best when they are fresh! There's also some discussion about the gut and detoxing. The more information you are armed with, the better choices you can make.

I took some great notes from this book and look forward to implementing them AND sharing this book with others. Congrats to Ms. Whittaker for a great doctor's report and creating this helpful book!

This is an intersting book with good, insightful info about how to use nuts for the improvement of health issues. I have learned lots of things from this book and have a new appreciation of nuts as a food group.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent intro to eating well February 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although the author is not a healthcare professional, she has provided quite a bit of useful information in this little book for those who don't have much background in nutrition. There were a number of helpful tips, and it could serve as a starting point for further research. I didn't learn much, but I have some medical training and read voraciously in this area, so that's not too surprising. I did love the example food labels she included.

The book would benefit from a good edit, but the grammatical problems didn't hinder comprehension, and as a professional editor, I'm probably more sensitive to language errors than most readers. The formatting seemed ok.
