5.0 out of 5 stars "A Must-Read for Anyone Suffering from Headaches or Other Chronic Conditions", July 9, 2015
I highly recommend this remarkable book to anyone suffering from headaches, any other chronic illness or anyone interested in maintaining brain health and general wellness. Written by a renowned board-certified neurologist, it combines sound evidence-based research about why we get sick with the healing traditions that have been around for thousands of years. Dr. Gokani draws upon her experience treating hundreds of patients in her clinic. She effectively blends a functional medicine approach with Aruvedic strategies to treat headaches.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's easy to read, June 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have over 40 years of diet books on my shelves and most of them have fallen into obscurity because they were based on fads, unrealistic promises of results that were impossible to sustain, or unsound theories that have since been disproven. But every once in awhile a weight loss program comes along that stands out from the pack. That book is The Gut Balance Revolution. It's a wow! Why? Because it's written by an esteemed gastroenterologist and nutritionist who truly understands the importance of gut health, not just for weight loss, but for optimal health in general. Not only is this book based on sound scientific theory, it's easy to read, and very comprehensive. I was pleased to see that attention was devoted to the importance of the mind-body connection and the importance of rest and sleep for weight loss. Plus, it's jammed packed with meal plans and easy to follow recipes. I intend to recommend this book to my clients and students.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful story about sorrow, loss, but also joy!, May 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: GG and Mamela (Hardcover)
This beautifully written and illustrated book deals with a subject that is difficult for all of us: saying good-bye to a loved one and coping with loss. Death and dying are particularly hard for young children to understand, but what better way to talk about this subject than through a story. And Brock tells the story in a way that engages readers from the beginning. She wisely chooses to focus on the relationship between a child and her great-grandmother, emphasizing the strong bond between them, the power of memories that will live on, and perhaps most importantly, describes GG's dying days as still full of joy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping Novel, January 30, 2014

This book was at once terrifying, electrifying and thought-provoking. Albert Brooks is a masterful science fiction writer. I couldn't put it down, and hope that he writes a sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs Up!! A Groundbreaking Guide to Digestive Health, February 13, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is the definitive guide to gut health. It's based on the principles of functional medicine, which considers the underlying root causes of illness, rather than just diagnosing a disease and treating it with pills or surgery. Mullin and Swift take the reader on a journey into the inner workings of the gastrointestinal tract and show how simple diet and lifestyle changes can generate a healing response. The recommendations they present are based on sound scientific evidence. The second half of the book is filled with yummy recipes that are easy to make and don't require a lot of specialized ingredients. The individualized Gastrointestinal Point System and the unique three-tiered nutrition program are especially useful. The book is sure to become a classic in the field of integrative medicine!

5.0 out of 5 stars One the the best resources for digestive health and optimum wellness!, December 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This easy to read guidebook is a wonderful resource that provides everything you need to know to "heal the gut.". Dr. Lipski's advice works, as it's based on scientific research as well as wellness teachings that have been around for hundreds of years. As a functional medicine practitioner, I keep a copy of this book in my office and recommend it to all my patients who suffer not only from digestive disturbances, but from inflammation, chronic pain or emotional issues.
