After practicing as a neurologist and neurosurgeon in her Russian homeland, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride moved to the UK, where she developed her theories on the relationship between neurological disorders and nutrition. She completed her second postgraduate degree in Human Nutrition at Sheffield University, UK, and currently runs the Cambridge Nutrition Clinic. She specializes in nutritional treatments, and has become recognized as one of the world’s leading experts in treating children and adults with learning disabilities and other mental disorders, as well as children and adults with digestive and immune disorders.
She is also the author of Gut And Psychology Syndrome (Revised Edition 2010), in which she explores the connection between physical state and brain function.
Dr Campbell-McBride frequently gives talks to health practitioners, and at professional conferences worldwide.

In this book she tackles the subject of CHD (Coronary Heart Disease). She tells us this is caused by atherosclerosis, which is "a disease of the arterial wall that leads to narrowing and obstruction of the artery". CHD is our number one killer. Its two major forms are angina pectoris and myocardial infection (heart attack).
Angina pectoris develops when the space inside the coronary artery is narrowed but not closed up. A heart attack occurs when "the coronary artery closes up completely and the blood supply to the heart muscle stops".
The author states that conventional medicine does not know the cause of atherosclerosis or how to cure it. She explains in this book what it is and what really causes it, and also how to prevent and reverse it. She dispels the myth of the "diet-heart hypothesis", and explains that cholesterol is not the enemy but an "integral and very important part of our cell membranes".
The diet-heart hypothesis stated that dietary fats, including cholesterol, cause heart disease and by avoiding these foods we can avoid developing heart disease. Ancel Keys, who put forward this hypothesis back in 1953, used completely faulty "evidence" and selective data to "prove" his point. In subsequent studies, data that did not support the hypothesis were ignored and the data that did were "inflated and advertised". Honest studies from different countries have proved the hypothesis to be completely erroneous.Read more ›
I'm giving this book 3 stars because it's basically excerpts from the other book. No new information. This made the book a waste of money.
My recommendation,,, buy Gut and Psychology Syndrome and skip this book. That ensures you get all the information you need, plus more.
