This review would have been totally different if I had written it just 24 hours ago. At about 11:00 a.m. CST this morning (11/7/16) I received a diagnosis from my doctor of Stage 4 colon cancer. Consequently, I am about to put the book to the ultimate test. I'll decide if the book is valid or invalid by the results I experience using the ketogenic diet to create an unfriendly environment for cancer cells within my body.
Colbert covers the use of food to combat a range of diseases; including: heart disease, obesity, arthritis, ADHD, Type 2 diabetes, cancer, and more. From my own experience, I know that Colbert is spot on with regards to diabetes and heart disease. I've suffered from both, and have managed to not only survive, but thrive by using my own versions of his modified Mediterranean Diet.
I'm anxious to once again get a healthy eating program underway and to experience the results of cancer being stopped in its tracks.
So.... in 6 months, ask me how I feel about this book, the eating programs, and the other valuable information provided by this volume.
Colbert's style is down to earth and is written in English, rather than some "Medicinese" journal or text book. I've enjoyed a number of Dr. Colbert's books over the years. But for me, personally, the subject and timeliness could not be any better.
I highly recommend this good read and award a 5 Star Rating.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest and timely review. There are no other expectations or arrangements between the publisher, author, or myself. The timing of this review and my medical diagnosis is purely coincidental.
Your comments in reply will be appreciated.
He tackles more diseases than that, though: cardiovascular disease, arthritis and autoimmune disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer (both early and late stages), early stages of dementia & Alzheimer's, ADAH and autism, and mental illness. He further modified his diet for each disease as certain foods seem to aggravate certain conditions. He provided several suggestions for what a breakfast, lunch, and dinner might look like. He also suggested things like correcting lies with truth, getting enough exercise, and so on. He also told stories about people who were helped by his diet and suggestions.
His philosophy is that drugs can help treat symptoms, but the ideal is to change your lifestyle to a sustainable, healthier one so that you can be weaned off of or at least greatly reduce the drugs you need. He maintained an encouraging tone, and his advice was easy to understand and felt do-able. Overall, I think his advice is generally quite good and helpful.
I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
