I'm a long time fan of health books, I've read many, and this is the best written overall guide I've found yet. It is just what I've been looking for. At last, a book about health that really speaks to me, and opens up the discussion about health to a larger view. It's written in an accessible and reader friendly style. The only thing I didn't like about the book is that it is only 400 pages. I wanted more!!! OK, maybe not everyone is going to save their life by reading it, but every reader is bound to discover plenty to like in this book, and improve their health, and change their life for the better.
The first chapter is a powerful lead-in to the rest of the book. It gives you a GREAT overall plan for a total health makeover. Many of us think we're already pretty nutrition savvy, but everyone will find something new here.
One of the coolest things about this book: it's arranged in a series of fresh, fascinating chapters that walk you through every major area of your body. So you can choose what area you need to work on or have problems with, and it tells you how to do a total makeover of that area. While the book is geared toward women, except for a few chapters it's equally applicable to men.
Another very cool thing about this book - it weaves together two kinds of alternative medicine, natural medicine from a Western view and Chinese medicine. The book's most important point may be that if you use both approaches at the same time, (and the book tells you how to do this) you'll be even healthier than if you used just one or the other alone. The book gives you many pearls of wisdom, secrets, and health tips from both of these perspectives that you've never heard before.
The Chinese medicine alone would make this book superb, but what made it even better for me were the links with western medicine. I love the fact that the book carefully selects the best of alternative medicine (from western medicine), so you get a side by side comparison of alernative western medicine and Chinese medicine that is pretty awesome. Then the book goes on to give lots of detailed steps you can take to make all of this bring you better health. I tried many of the recomendations, and some helped, but others worked wonders.
The book is well written, and it feels like the author is talking personally to you about your health and helping you walk through and solve your health problems.Read more ›
