I recently lowered my cholesterol by 31 points [244 to 203] in a period of about 40 days, using the information in the book [didn't take any meds]. There is no conclusive evidence that what I did was the sole cause of the drop in points or that the results would be typical, but I have a hard time believing that it was mere coincidence. If there is validity in what I did and the results, isn't it worth a look? A relative of mine, a physician, has cholesterol approaching the 300's and I doubt he would even consider trying the non-pharmaceutical alternative. The average physician will undoubtedly poo-poo it anyway as unsubstantiated nonsense. Incidentally, my family doctor sent me a Dear John letter [with no explanation] and I suspect it has something to do with my belief that the responsibility of maintaining proper health first lies with the individual, and then the physician.
If you are thirsting for more than conventional medical wisdom, are dissatisfied with treatments that have not really proved effective or have suspicions or doubts based on direct or indirect experiences, then take a look at this book. It's easy to understand and a rather light at only 99 pages. I guarantee that you will be astonished by what you learn because much of it is very contrary to what we have grow up believing. Which begs the question: If there is any validity to the content, why isn't there more interest from the medical community - especially since expensive high-tech medicine does not always provide lasting solutions? All I know is that lab work doesn't lie. And you have nothing to loose if addressing a chronic condition involves merely changing your diet and/or lifestyle. Just break it to your physician gently, lest you offend him/her.
