Top Customer Reviews
In the first section, she lists alphabetically some eighty-three common ailments. She describes the general characteristics of each, using a level of detail that is reasonably bereft of jargon. Mitchell adds their causes and how diet and supplementation may prove useful. Readers who are health care professionals will find little to grouse about since Mitchell's advice is thoroughly conventional.
In the second section, she lists one hundred and seven medicinal foods ranging alphabetically from apples to yogurt. She presents each food with an historical overview of its origins, followed by a listing of its nutritional components, ending with its health benefits. Again, the level of complexity and detail is designed for the lay person.
The final section lists twenty-five common commercially available supplements. I have a slight problem here since Mitchell omits very many others that can be quite useful such as Carnosine, grapeseed, and Acetyl L-Carnitine. Overall, this book is a worthwhile starting point for the nutritional novice.
