While God most certainly played a role in my nearly 200-pound weight loss on the Atkins diet in 2004, you are not necessarily required to be a Christian in order for the diet (or ANY diet!) to work. I've been asked questions like "Do you have to be religious to do your diet?" by well-meaning members of the secular media when I bring up the role of my faith in my journey towards better health.

The short answer is "no," but it certainly helps to have the power of the Almighty Creator on your side for those times when you need His divine strength to carry you through the valleys that most certainly come when you try to lose weight. If you've ever gone through a weight loss experience without support, then you know exactly how hard it can be. You need a friend that sticks closer than a brother to be there for you when you need Him the most.

What if you could invest a mere 10-15 minutes a day for less than two months of you life and learn practical Biblical advice about improving your health? Would you be interested in learning more about it? If you are a Christian or desire to do something positive and productive about your weight and health, then of course you would.

That's precisely why prolific Christian author Dr. Don Colbert wrote his bestselling book entitled The Seven Pillars Of Health: The Natural Way To Better Health For Life. This 50-day all-inclusive health manual will empower you with tons of information that can be absorbed and immediately applied into your life to bring about big changes in a short period of time. This could be the miracle you have been praying for.

Dr. Colbert is well-known as the premier "health doctor" within Christian circles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Information March 30, 2007
I enjoyed the book and got lots of great information that I'm implementing. However some of the recomendations were expensive and some products were only available in the USA or from his website (vitamins etc.). It actually seemed like he was pushing his vitamins, powders etc. I got too confused about the vitamins and found his charts hard to understand, so I'm sticking to the ones that are available to me from my local health food store even though the doses are far from his formula.

The book would have been more beneficial if he suggested over the counter products and items we could buy readily from either a local health food store or grocery department. As an example the bottled water he recomends... nowhere to be found in my neck of the woods and they havn't even heard ot it. A little more research on his part and a little more get down to earth with the regular folk and he'd have a winner.

Should you buy it? Sure... it's helpful. But a word of caution, you may not be able to apply all his recommendations.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Seven Pillars of Health March 14, 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having been in the field of health for almost 40 years, and having teethed on Dr. Walker's books in the '60's, I can truthfully say this is the most comprehensive, easy to read (and understand) book on 'helping yourself to health' that I have read in years. The only drawback is financial: if you buy yourself a copy (and read it), you will find yourself buying copies for everyone in your family who is living away from home!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book but watch bottled water ph numbers March 13, 2007
By cherie
I accidently happened upon this book in a store and was really taken by the information inside. I read about things I had never heard about before. I jumped right on the bandwagon and started buying new and more expensive bottled waters for myself and my family. Then I decided to go one step further and bought a set of ph strips to test my new waters. Well, I was surprised by what I found. They did not necessarily match the phs listed in the back of the book for various waters. I had bought Gerolsteiner by mistake which is listed as 5.9 but my test came out as 8 while Glaceau Smart Water came out lower than I expected. Based on my findings I would recommend to anyone who is serious about this program and planning to use bottled water as their main source to invest $14 in a pack of litmus strips at their local pharmacy and test their own waters to find the higher phs. I still think this book is great and recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Beginning December 11, 2007
This book has started me on the path to a more healthy lifestyle. When my sons were at the Air Force Academy, they were constantly told, "water is the elixer of life". Water is the first pillar. That made the book credible for me. I am implementing the steps slowly, one at a time. I've also convinced a group of friends to do this with me. Drinking more water is our first step. My diabetic friend, who was drinking NO water, has seen her sugar go down with just 16-32 ounces a day. (She drinks the flavored bottled water.)I'm convinced that once she gets up to half her weight in ounces on a regular basis that she will see her diabetes disappear. I highly recommend this book for a healthy lifestyle. I've only added one thing to it: prayer for wise food choices.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Seven Pillars of Health January 31, 2007
I thought this was the best overall book on health that I have ever read. The information is vital, but it is an easy read. Most all areas of health are addressed (except food combining). It really has inspired me to "get my act together" and eat in a more healthy manner. After reading this book, I have ordered other books from Dr. Colbert. I am very impressed with his whole empahsis on body, mind, and spirit.
