This book is, indeed, the second edition of the book originally entitled `The Four Pillars of Healing'. If you read that book, then you have read this one: the only differences (besides the lurid cover) seem to be a couple of new appendices and a change to an existing one, and an extensive questionnaire to discover one's mediators, antecedents, triggers, and effects (terms explained in the book). But, since the first edition came out in 1997 and this one in 1998, the references are still quite current.
Basically, Dr. Galland is making the point that modern medicine has lost its way, and is now doing much damage in some cases, and little good in many others. Of course, this is a point rather stridently made by many authors advancing alternatives to the offerings of the medical establishment, such as meditation, acupuncture, herbal therapies, dietary supplements, and so on. Dr. Galland is sympathetic to many of these alternatives, but what is different about his approach is that he wishes to bring them into the fold, as it were, rather than break from the flock. He was trained as a physician in the usual way, a way he now feels is wrong, that modern medicine is expending much effort to solve the wrong problems.
Healing sick people by observing them, interacting with them, and restoring their balance is the foundation of medical art, but somewhere in the 19th century that approach got displaced when microorganisms began to be associated with disease. It was a short step to claim that these microorganisms "caused" the disease - one germ, one disease. Before long a new type of doctor began to dominate medical care, the "specialist". Specialists were trained to think of a disease as an entity with characteristics that were independent of the person it happened to be afflicting.

This book is the exactly the same as his previous book "The Four Pillars of Healing", just in paperback and with a new cover. You save a few bucks by getting this paperback edition.

I think I like the original title of this book better: The Four Pillars of Healing. Regardless of the crash diet-style title, this book is an essential and in-depth read for people suffering from persistent symptoms of ill health and all health providers. It understandably explains complex physiological connections that link varying symptoms with underlying causation, and points to significant references from scientific and clinical research, which back up his thesis and approach to achieving balanced good health from the inside out. This is for people who are dissatisfied with treating symptoms by masking (suppressing) them, and determined to root out the deeper causes of their dis-ease in a comprehensive manner. The approach combines patient-centered medicine, a solid base in the whole foods diet, addressing often-missed issues such as the health of the intestinal immune system, in a holistic approach to balanced living that is the best of ancient and modern knowledge and wisdom. I highly recommend it.

After you get through his personal story, the information is priceless. This book offers a substantial perspective in the ways that your body works and heals itself. It is about looking at what you eat and using your symptoms to tell you the story of your nutrition, your environment, your relationships and your mindset.

This book is so beautifully written it's like reading a true work of literature. The original title was something like "The Four Pillars of Healing"
but they changed it to be more "self-help-y" later on in re-issue. Dr. Galland seems to be semi-retired and his son has taken over his brand to no
good end. I mention this only so you do not think this book is like what you might find from the Dr. Galland brand these days. In fact when
Dr. Galland wrote this he made no attempt to "brand" himself, per se, as is so rampant these days by every person who has even a small thought.

Of all the books I have read on health and healing this is at the very top of my list. I feel like getting into too much "description" is just
going to fall short of the experience of reading the book. It's intelligent, sensible, intuitive and so well written. I can't imagine not being
enriched by reading this book.

No it does not have the little cartoons catchy captions or super-star author brand thing going on. This book was written before the
days of "Healing for Dummies" and "Waist Management" -- way back when integrated medicine was just coming into view in America
thanks to such great pioneers as Andrew Weil and Jon Kabat-Zinn. This is a seminal work and a great read. Everyone should read it.
