Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Lipman, a Manhattan-based doctor versed in both Chinese Western medicine, and co-author Gunning present a sensible seven-step program to renew health. According to Lipman, modern medicine is currently a disease-care rather than a health-care system, which treats the symptoms (often with unnecessary drugs) rather than getting to the root of the illness itself. In his 25 years as a physician, Lipman has found that a combination of Western and holistic approaches (such as acupuncture and yoga) can best serve patients who suffer from modern malaise and such problems as chronic pain, irritable bowel syndrome and acid reflux. His program involves taking responsibility for one's own health, establishing a more open, communicative relationship with a doctor, and spring-cleaning the body's system to repair damage from exposure to toxins in food and the environment. His seven steps (take responsibility for your health and well being; remove toxins and decrease your total load; recognize your unique diet; replenish nutrients and balance hormones; release tension and relieve stress; revitalize with a detox; and reconnect to yourself, others and nature) are described in distinct chapters with specific instructions on foods to eat, toxins to avoid, and ways to live more healthfully. According to Lipman, toxicity is the biggest challenge to being healthy today; his integrative approach provides practical methods for revitalizing the body and spirit.

As the mom of a toddler, wife of a competitive athlete, daughter of octogenarian parents, and owner of a small business, I feel like a lot of people depend on me. And the only way I can be that dependable person is to be vigilant about my own health.
This book has become an invaluable partner in my ongoing quest for more energy, vitality and a better quality of life. Information is presented in a straightforward, easy-to-grasp format and Dr. Lipman doesn't preach or nag. He gives you the tools the improve your health ... you can pick and choose what makes sense to you and take it from there.
By the way, one of the best features of the book is the "resources" listing at the back. Twelve pages of websites list everything from green products to children's health to nutrition. These resources help me make better choices.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent rendition for total self-improvement. The volume covers holistic exercises; such as, triangular stretches,

the wall pose, half dog pose and many more. The volume lists

strategies to reduce stress, maintain bone density, neutralize

blood sugar, decrease body fat percentage(BMR) and improve

aerobic calistenics. Regenerate the body with Glutamine, Gamma

Orizanol- (rice bran oil compound to heal intestines ), Omega 3

fatty acids,flaxseed oil, Gamma-Linolenic Acid, Licorice Root

and Aloe Vera. Products which help leaky gut are Glutagenics,

and Perm A vite. Colostrum may be utilized to assist the immune

system in operating optimally. The author provides good protocols

for treating insulin resistance and metabolic syndromes.

He treats insulin resistance with a low-glycemic diet, limiting

intake of grains/cereals, exercise, non-starchy veggies and

Omega 3 , Omega 6 fatty acids and Glucobetics. A sluggish

thyroid may be treated with Thyrosol from Metagenics. Adrenal

exhaustion may be treated with Magnesium 300-500 mg.,

Zinc, Licorice Root, Siberian Ginseng and Ashwaganda (Indian

ginseng ). The authors deal with parasitic infections via

Grapefruit extract 300 millgm, Candibactin BR or Paraguard.

There is a resource section at the end of the book which shows

where to purchase the supernutrients. The book is an excellent

value for the price charged.

Format: Hardcover
I must confess that I bought Total Renewal because of the jacket quotes from Dr. Lipman's celebrity clients -- Donna Karan, David Letterman and Kevin Bacon. But then I began reading and following his seven steps. It hasn't been long, but I have found his advice to be incredibly practical and effective. It's helped my daughter's allergies and his chapters on diet have given me the soundest, sanest advice for how to eat that I've ever read.

Frank Lipman's approach to health seems revolutionary. He's not presenting a doctrine; he's not saying you must do this or that or else; he's not promising an unrealistic cure-all. He's showing you how you can take charge of your own health and change it, permanently, for the better. His approach is a perfectly balanced combination of western and eastern training, of common sense and non-traditional thinking, of information and suggestion. And the book is wonderfully readable--personal, anecdotal, straightforward, and friendly in the best sense. Lipman isn't setting himself up as a guru, but once you feel the effects of his ideas and methods, as I have, you might think of him that way. Do yourself a great favor and find out what he has to offer. You won't be sorry.

DEAR AMAZON.COM:
DR. LIPMAN'S BOOK GOES DIRECTLY THE HEART OF LIVING A HEALTHY PRODUCTIVE LIFE. I'VE SUFFERED FROM FIBROMYALGIA AND CHRONIC FATIGUE FOR OVER 8 YEARS. MY HUSBAND HAPPENED TO SEE AND ARTICLE WRITTEN BY JOSEPH HOOPER IN MY MAY 2003 ISUE OF OPRAH MAGAZINE. HE WAS TOTALLY AMAZED BY DR.LIPMAN'S THEORIES AND ADVICE. WHEN HE CALLED DR. LIPMAN'S OFFICE DIRECTLY AND FRANK ANSWERED THE PHONE HIMSELF WE KNEW WE HAD FOUND SOMEONE SPECIAL.
AFTER EXPLAINING MY CONDITION TO DR. LIPMAN HE SUGGESTED WE GET A COPY OF HIS BOOK. WE IMMEDIATELY BOUGHT A COPY AND READ IT FROM COVER TO COVER. WE CAME AWAY FEELING THAT WE HAD FOUND AN ANSWER TO OUR PRAYERS. WE DECIDED TO SEEK HIS PROFESSIONAL ADVICE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. DR. LIPMAN IS KNOWLEDGEABLE, KIND AND A TRUE HUMANITARIAN. HE CARES ABOUT EVERYONE OF OF HIS PATIENTS AS IF THEY WERE HIS FAMILY AND HIS GOAL IN LIFE IS TO HELP PEOPLE BECOME WELL AND TO LEAD A FULFILLING LIFE. HE ADMITS THAT IT TAKES ALOT OF WORK AND GETTING ADJUSTED TO, BUT HE DOES NOT PREACH OR MAKE IMPOSSIBLE DEMANDS. YOU EITHER WANT TO IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH OR WELL BEING OR YOU DON'T. MEETING AND SPEAKING WITH DR.LIPMAN IS TRULY A SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE, BUT IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE MEANS TO TRAVEL TO HIS OFFICE OR JUST WANT TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF YOUR LIFE READING TOTAL RENEWAL WILL SEND YOU DOWN THE PATH TO BETTER HEALTH. I ONLY WISH I HAD READ THIS BOOK A FEW YEARS AGO, I KNOW MY QUALITY OF LIFE WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH BETTER AND I WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER PERSON FOR KNOWING DR. LIPMAN. WITHIN 2 WEEKS OF FOLLOWING HIS RECOMMENDATIONS I HAVE BEGUN TO FEEL BETTER THAN I HAVE IN MANY YEARS. I ONLY WISH I HAD READ THIS BOOK A FEW YEARS AGO, I KNOW MY QUALITY OF LIFE OULD HAVE BEEN MUCH BETER ABD I WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER PERSON FOR HAVING KNOWN DR. FRANK LIPMAN.
YOURS TRULY,
CHRIS & JACKIE QUALEY
