Let me start by saying that I have never written a review for Amazon before but I believe that this book is so important that I felt that I needed to come out in defense of it and give it my highest recommendation.

It's hard for me to believe how cynical some people can be when they read a book such as this, and pass judgment on it without even trying the recommendations put forth.

It's obvious that the people who have slammed this book and given it one star haven't really tried anything that the author recommends. Too bad for them.

But it's also too bad for people who might be looking for something to either cure themselves or cure others--and this book might have just the information they need--are turned off by people who are irresponsibly critical.

Yes, he does have a supplement company and some of the products are a little pricey and yes you can find similar products a little cheaper. But that doesn't negate the fact that the book is full of useful, backed-up-by-research information that will make a radical difference in a person's diet and health.

One doesn't have to buy his supplements to get full use of this remarkable book, anyway.

He does have one supplement though, Primal Defense, which are the Healthy Soil Organisms that cannot be found anywhere else as far as I know, which created the major turning point in his being cured of Crohn's disease. We all need these healthy probiotics and if you read the book you will understand why. (If you get this in the powdered form it ain't that expensive anyway.)

I have a cousin who had been sick with Crohn's Disease (a supposedly incurable disease) for years. She had been wasting away, could barely eat any food and the doctor's had given up on her.

I first came across this book about a year ago when our local Whole Foods gave it out for free. I was impressed with Mr. Rubin's story, but was put off by the thought that he was simply trying to market his products.
I wish I hadn't wasted that year. After having tried everything else and getting no results, I decided to give this a try as a last resort. After less than one month of taking the products, I am in excellent health. The chronic conditions I had suffered with for several years are now gone!
Yes, I agree, this book is a marketing strategy. But don't let that put you off from purchasing an incredibly effective product. Read the book, give it a try, you have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

This is a great book... you just have to get past the sales techniques for the author's products and focus on the points he's making. I started following his program "generally" without buying any of his brand name supplements and I later found that two diagnosed diseases I had been told I had were gone... Chron's disease and herniated discs. The doctors don't have an explanation. During follow-up testing, both problems were gone. I now buy a few of the author's supplements (primarily because I've learned to trust what he has to say), but I've also learned enough from his book and what God has provided for us in the Bible to augment this author's ideas. In my opinion, this is a must-read. It certainly can't hurt.

Patient Heal Thyself is about 60% the same information as the Maker's Diet, but in some areas it covers information more thoroughly which is very helpful when you're trying to absorb this major lifestyle change. PHT went into more detail on what the different supplements can do for you and why they work, it went into more detail on clinical studies conducted to prove the Diet's truths, and half the book discussed specific ailments and what dietary changes should be made to achieve optimal health. All I can say regarding the Maker's Diet and PHT is that this is the time of year my three children suffer with horrible allergies, including once a week shots and are on 5-6 different asthma medicines and now after a month on the diet and the supplement Primal Defense, they're symptom free.

Let me start bottom side up...
I have suffered from crohn's for the past ten years, I'm 6'1', I weighed 185 pounds when i was 17 (10 years ago), within a half year from when this disease struck me I weighed 142 pounds - life was miserable - I could not be between people, for I didn't know when my gut will strike me next. Where ever I would go, I first would locate the nearest bathroom...
To make the story short - since then I have been on and off prednisone and asacol and pepcid for 10 years, with my docs constantly threatening with surgery. I was hospitalized 2-3 years ago with severe problems.
3 months ago I had another attack, I didn't want to go through all the medical procedures in order the doctor should let me get back on to steroids - so I went on to news groups - seeking for alternative treatments - someone recommend me that I read this book.
I read the book in it's entirety - I got really hooked on some of the products - specifically "primal defense" & "omega-zyme" and all I can say is "it's a miracle - it basically took 4 weeks, and most of my aches and pain began to subside - I am finally starting to feel my normal life again.
I am a true believer in his products.
You might ask why I only rate it 3 stars - simply because I look at it as a product brochure - with very little usefull information beyond his personal story and his product (per se - "patient heal thyself" hmmm with my products)
