However, it's handy because it's not online. It's a book, it has sections, and it's not like trying to wade through several blogs and random search results if you want to know a variety of things.
I bought this book because 1) I didn't want to go through her whole website (lazy lazy) and 2) she looked at health and nutrition from a Christian point of view. I knew this going into it, and I almost want to apologize for the people that didn't realize what it was--but, that's not my responsibility, and there are plenty of books out there that take real food and nutrition from a secular or atheistic point of view. Personally, because I don't hold to an atheistic worldview, but a Christian one like Donielle does, I appreciated that. Because from a Christian worldview, you interpret information differently. It's a worldview that God did make the world, and that we were created a certain way, and that our bodies will work on the food he gave us--not the food that man manufactures in this fallen world.
This is worldview. And the logic that vegetables, milk, honey, etc, are good for us are because of this worldview. And it can make logical sense according to it. It doesn't make any sense to a worldview that holds that humans evolve from primordial soup--but anyway, as I've said, there are plenty of books out there that approach real food, nutrition, and fertility from that standpoint.
This book is for people like me. It approaches the topics from a worldview that more closely mirrors my own.Read more ›
It contained many good references for natural cleaning products, healthier eating and ideas to clean up your lifestyle.
I enjoyed the reviews of different natural medicine practices, but found much of the ideas lacked scientific backing. There was not references beyond her opinion on why grains are not healthy, as one example. I think that sometimes it can be helpful, but a desperate woman, wanting a baby could follow something like this without a doctor's guidance and cause major health issues. So, even with some of the good ideas in here, I would advise to proceed with a physicians or midwife's guidance before going on a strict diet to promote fertility.
I think this could be a much more valuable book if there were more references to scientific studies or statistics relating to some of the info and I would love to see it updated with some of that info!
My family has suffered two miscarriages and an infant lost at birth (due to undiagnosed issues with the placenta). Thus, I am so grateful for Donielle's synthesis of information in this book. The other reviewers are right: this information is a treasury not just for those trying to conceive but for those who are pregnant, nursing -- or perhaps most importantly -- just want to be healthier.
Hopefully implementing Donielle's advice will help us achieve a safe and healthy pregnancy soon!
