The health benefits from using olive oil are beyond amazing. The Healing Powers of Olive Oil has been a Godsend to me. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes last year. I cried when I got my blood tests back. My cholesterol and triglycerides we're far above normal. I felt like I was a walking time bomb. Now they've dropped over 100 points and my blood sugar levels are easier to manage. I've begun using the recipes "all with olive oil" in the book. You can even use olive oil in baking healthful goodies! I bought Ms. Orey's other book The Healing Powers of Vinegar. Together these dynamic books are teaching me a new way of eating and living...healthfully!

"The Healing Powers of Olive Oil" is a breakthrough book that can do much more for you than be an aid to cooking. It's jam packed with wit, wisdom, cures, remedies, recipes and more and presented in an easy to understand and informative way. Lowering cholesterol and blood pressure got my attention. If you value your health and the health of your family, you will purchase Cal Orey's book.

Cal Orey has written another very informative book. I feel like I finally understand the various types of olive oil I see in many stores. I love the way she summarizes each chapter calling them "The Golden Secrets to Remember." I especially loved the chapters called "Cures from Your Kitchen (30 Ways to Use Olive Oil Remedies)" and "Olive Oil Mania: Using Olive Oil for the Household, Kids, Pets, and Beauty." I plan to visit an olive oil producer mention that is a half hour drive from our home as well as trying some of the recipes that she has included. Until reading this book I had no idea there were so many benefits from olive oil. I look forward to trying the various types in my home. This book is a must for anyone wanting to know more about olive oil.

My family has been in the olive oil industry for decades. We've preached the health benefits of olive oil, but seemed to often fall on deaf ears. Cal Orey offers a huge leap forward in the understanding of the Mediterranean diet and its miraculous effects.

If you have any doubts, take a look at the average consumption of olive oil in Spain and Italy (roughly 13kg per capita per year) compared to the US (0.56kg per capita), then take a look at the rates of heart disease.

This book is a must have for anyone who has a desire to live healthier and longer.

Format: Paperback
This is a well-written, interesting, and extremely informative book. I've used olive oil before, but never knew much about it. I didn't know the differences between the varieties, only that extra virgin oil costs more, and so it must be better. Cal not only explained the difference between the varieties and how they're made, but also the history of the oil itself, and she does so in such an entertaining way. Neither did I know how heart-and-body healthy it really was. She explains this in detail, and presents numerous ways in which it to gain the most benefit from it, along with a variety of recipes, even how to substitute it for use it in cookies and cakes!

I was also surprised and intrigued to find olive oil has so many possible uses outside of the kitchen, too. Cal gives some excellent ideas, which range from using it as a substitute for those costly body/beauty-care products (who wants to pay $25 for a miniscule jar of wrinkle cream?) to innovative ways to use it around the house. I HIGHLY recommend this book - to anyone who uses olive oil on a regular basis, you will definitely learn something new- but *especially* to those who don't. You have NO idea what you're missing!

Cal Orey has a proven track record with her previous book "The Healing Powers of Vinegar". She delivers alot of necessary information in a fun and memorable manner. It is a pleasure to read and a pleasure to follow. I knew many uses for vinegar, but learned 10 times more from reading her book... so when I read "The Healing Powers of Olive Oil", naturally I followed what she wrote. If you're like me, you thought that olive oil was just for cooking. And, you're selling yourself short on what that little bottle in your pantry can do. Don't hesitate, just order it... RIGHT NOW!!

I've not written a book review before (well I don't remember writing one, anyway), but after reading this book I not only decided to write a review, but I also recommend it on our website ([...]

I got it because I was told I ought to eat a spoonful of olive oil everyday as part of my diet. How strange is that diet request? Well I thought I'd better learn something before doing it. This book opened up my eyes to the amazing powers of olive oil.

I think I'd do an injustice to the author to give some of it away, but definitely encourage you to learn all that it says AND incorporate it into your life. :-)

I have been using olive oil for years when I bake. When a recipe called for vegetable oil, I used olive oil. It's healthier and doesn't change the flavor of your recipe but enhances it. Olive oil has been used since the beginning of time, so why change? There's something to say about what we should use and eat from God who created the olive tree. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to be healthy.
