"Sick and Tired?" is a **SUPERB** book. I have studied more than 200 alternative cancer treatments and have pondered dozens of different theories about what causes cancer. This book provides the best foundation for understanding and linking together many of these diverse theories. It literally describes the common thread that passes through all of the best cancer theories.
Understand also that there is an intense, brutal war between orthodox medicine and alternative medicine. And yes, there really is a conspiracy that is funded with billions of dollars from Big Pharma!! If you don't understand the sophisticated tactics used by Big Pharma in this war then you need to read my article: "Introduction to Alternative Cancer Treatments". This article will open your eyes as to what is really going on.
Those who gave this book one star have absolutely no clue what has been going on in alternative medicine over the past 100 years. Their articles remind me of the articles on the quackwatch, ACS, WebMD, NCI, B.C. Cancer Agency, etc. websites. The goal of these websites is to destroy alternative medicine. They pretend to be experts and pretend to be "open-minded," but in fact they are distracting your attention from the important issues, such as what *really* causes most cases of cancer. The answer starts with the acidic soil, then to food processing, then to an acidic diet, then to the pleomorphic parasites, etc.
While there are many excellent books on the theory of cancer (e.g. "Choose Life or Death," "The Body Electric," etc.Read more ›
Now to the diet part. It is hard to follow initially but, the times that we eat mostly green (we do eat animal protein on the diet, but in smaller amounts. White blood cells will get that bad old bacteria and frankly I like protein. but, smaller amounts made my constipation issues go away.) We try to follow the pH Miracle philosphy of 80/20 (80 good foods 20, not so great) but we keep taking our supergreens as well. We do feel really great when following that plan. My husband is a runner and was mad at me because he thought he would never get "good" food again. After 3 weeks on the 80/20 with our supergreens still in full swing, he admitted that he never felt better.
A friend said this: if you don't feel great, your body is telling you something. Most people have the "I eat all the crap I want disease." This is true.Read more ›
This book was for me, a lesson in patience. The main dietary ideas put forth I have found to be insightful and of real benefit to me physically. However, I found some of the philosophy and appendix material a bit discrediting at times (of course we all have our own opinions about what's credible).
Some Very Good: Central to Dr. Young's approach to health is the philosophy that your inner terrain (i.e. the health of your cells) determines to the quality of your overall health. So, if you examine your blood and have acidic and parasitic constituents present, it is likely that you have a breeding ground for disease. I think this is an enlightened view, considering the cause of problems rather than just treating the symptoms of an already developed disease condition.
His green-based alkalizing diet, and his justification for it, seem rational and well considered to me. I have lost weight, gained overall stamina and resisted colds and flu DRAMATICALLY, compared to my past history, and to my family (who are not on the plan)... and I am what anyone would call "a skeptic". The explanation of the pH balance of my blood and its effect on my body were compelling, and the tables and recipes made the application of the theory fairly easy.
Some Not So Good: Just a few points about the book that at times, taxed my patience. I think that Dr. Young has solid scientific evidence indicating the effectiveness of his recommended diet plan, however he alludes to, at times, spiritual connections which I find distracting. Everyone has unique spiritual perspectives, so when Dr. Young alludes to his own in conjunction with the scientific material, I find it unnecessary and inappropriate. In an interview, Dr.Read more ›
