This book has a large list of disorders along with jump-starting menus and recipes to help the reader cope. This book became ever so much more valuable when I found out that Medicare does not consider Nutritionists or dieticians as being necessary to a person's well-being. One of the very best books on nutrition and its relationship to health wellness I have ever found.

This book has plenty of recipes for all kinds of health and wellness problems -- everything from dental issues to heart disease and diabetes. I bought this book with the cholesterol and diabetes recipes in mind but there is a lot more here. Clear and easy to understand.

Great book....great price...great deal...timely delivery..
Natural food cures are preferable to medication, often after the fact that disease sets in, preventative health is definately the way to go...

When I finally had the time to read this book, I was pleasantly surprised of all the information health wise, that it contained. With all the problems we encounter as we age, this book was most helpful. After I read the book, then I was ready for the recipes that it suggested, I was really expecting more recipes in an index form by themselves, but they were scattered throughout the book.
Is there a cook book available?

I bought this book hoping to find natural ways to deal with and improve blood pressure that gets too low, but found this topic is apparently not discussed, and so I'm disappointed in that. I realize that such a problem occurs less often than hypertension does. Perhaps in the future she or another medical/nutrition writer might consider reseaching and writing for those who suffer from hypotension. and ways/food to improve it. I have found quite a bit of information online, but it is a very time-consuming task to do all the research necessary and to put it into an organized format.

However, I did give the book four stars because I feel it is well-organized and well-written and would probably help many people with the specific problems the author does discuss such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, and so on. The recipes and advice she gives would probably be helpful to sufferers of these illnesses.

This book has been very helpful. I have arthritis which causes swelling and inflammation but am unable to use anti-inflammatory drugs. Because of this I have turned to other ways to help. This book has been so helpful. I now am so much better by eating foods that help that problem. It also is a more healthful way to go. The other bonus is that I've been losing weight. Thanks for this book!!
