Format: Paperback
I've read a number of nutrition, health and wellness books, but this one is a top-notch publication for a number of reasons. For one, it's well-organized and easy to follow. Numerous conditions and ailments are listed, followed by recommendations on what you can do to improve it. Yu solicits input from respected professionals, not the fly-by-night infomercial "experts" that you see on TV.

What I found especially encouraging is that the improvements the author recommends are not hard to implement. I realized as I read this that sometimes just minor adjustments to my diet, like adding a little less salt, reducing my portion sizes, or substituting fruit for a snack in place of junk food can lead to tremendous improvements in how I feel and my overall energy levels! I've only just begun to make some of these changes, and I already feel like I have more energy than I've had in years!

Yu deserves a lot of credit for presenting sound information and educating the reader, and most importantly putting within our grasp the changes that can lead to significant health and wellness improvements. I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants to feel and live better!

Yu's book is wonderfully helpful, user-friendly, well-organized, clear & concise. The book presents the reader with almost 100 medical conditions and provides information on what the ailment looks like, what to eat, what not to eat, and strategies for staying healthy. For me, the most exciting aspect of the book is that I can use it in tandum with B.K.S. Iyengar's book, Yoga: The Path to Holistic Health, which gives me poses (asanas) to do for a particular medical condition/problem to relieve/remedy a problem. Yu hit the nail on the head with this book and is to be complemented. Simply put, this book is easy to use, easy to understand and easy to implement...the kind of book that I will reference often!

Format: Paperback
I have always considered myself a healthy eater but until I read "What to Eat for What Ails You" by Ms. Yu, I did not realize that what I was eating was not always healthy depending on my condition/illness. This book has changed my eating habits and I feel heatlhier and happier -- more energy. I am constantly referring to its pages for guidance in what to eat to help me overcome/feel better. What I especially like about the book is that it not only tells you what to eat for a particular ailment but defines what the ailment is and what the symptons are. Ms Yu does so in "layman's" terms so even myself, a self admitted non-medical person, fully understands without referring to a medical dictionary. I also like the tidbits on what to avoid eating for a particular ailment -- just as important as what to eat. Her strategies on staying healthy are very enlightening and well worth following. Overall, I find this one of the best resource books I or anyone could own. I highly recommend it to everyone of all ages and lifestyles.
