A big advantage to this book is its variety. It's a great introduction to multiple treatments that affect the body in different ways. If you're new to the area and are more interested in what alternative treatment can offer for life in general, this is a good starting point. And if you're looking for information about a specific remedy or condition, this could point you in the right direction. While you may be only interested in one treatment, having a wider range of resources on your bookshelf (physical or digital) can't hurt. And none of the treatments in this book were so bizarre as to hurt its credibility. There may be remedies you've never heard of, but they are all things you can easily independently research.
And remedies aren't the only things covered here. You'll find chapters on household items linked to cancer and other illness. And skincare products too. She isn't railing against everything, so don't worry that it's just someone up on a soapbox. She'll mention things like risks with certain lipsticks and move on. It gives the impression of raising awareness rather than judging or ordering others around.
Another advantage is the author's tone. She writes in an upbeat, natural voice. You'll see it particularly in the more unusual sections such as ingesting clay. She acknowledges things that seem more puzzling to the average person and isn't afraid to ditch the serious vibe for one more light and happy. This book has a lot of serious content, but her attitude makes it feel more like advice from a friend than a lecture from a stranger.
I could stand to see a little more background in what she believes are the biggest problems. There's a short section that explains it somewhat, but for an audience that may not be very familiar with toxins or free radicals, a little more couldn't hurt. The same goes for her explanations on why things help. Some are excellent, some could be elaborated on a touch more. For example, taking clay is completely new to many people and how it works is still a little confusing to me after reading her book. I don't mean to say it's unbelievable because she didn't give a twenty-page report. My curiosity could just use a bit more information to be sated.
On the note of more information, the author does cite quite a few sources. And she does it in-text which I like since it makes it easy to find if I'm wanting to read more (or at least do an initial Google) before moving on. Many authors underestimate the power of citation. Not only does it help your reader learn more, it gives you a stronger foundation to stand on. She has certainly researched what she writes about and though she doesn't give long lists of other books to pick up, she does give solid leads for further research by the reader. I consider this a huge plus for any book that involves people’s health. For books like these I like to know more about the author. The biggest problem with e-books in this genre is the lack of a dustjacket which is where you normally find the long list of credentials. There isn’t much about the author in the e-book itself, and I would strongly recommend changing that or at least adding a bio to the book description on the product page. Her education is listed on her Amazon author page, but many people may not click through. People may not be as careful with their health as they should be, but it is likely to hurt the book’s image if it’s difficult to find out how the author is qualified to write about the subject.
One final (and minor) thing I wish I'd seen more of is the general disclaimer to not start or stop treatments without seeking a doctor's advice. I know many people in the target audience will never seek a doctor's advice because they are trying to steer clear of modern medicine to begin with. I have no issue with that. My only concern is that every author in this field should shield him or herself a little more.
I found this book helpful as a general resource and a great place to find other works to refer to. It’s a great introduction if you’re new to the field and will give you plenty of food for thought.
I try to be proactive with my health and much prefer trying to stay healthy than expecting a prescription drug to solve my health issues. It is troubling to me the greed that appears to be a big part of our health care system and major drug companies. I would and have recommended this book to people that are interested staying healthy. Read this book, and you will go on a completely different path to health.
If you are interested in improving your health, losing weight, or feeling younger, this book is a must read.
Iead a healthier life and regain wellness. Everyone should read " get your health back" .
For those that are skeptical, all you have to do is test out the methods provided in this book, and you will be amazed. This is not a crash diet, it is not a book that is going to force you to do something too extreme, it's simple, easy to read, and holds something grand for anyone that is willing to get a bit healthier than they are right now. I found it compelling, and recommend it.
