Her recommending the American DASH Diet (except for the high volume of breads and grains that DASH recommends), Dr. Cass also mentions the value of some other popular diets and exercise. She is good to mention these thiings - really good!
I especially like it that this book is organized so that the reader need only read the first two easy reading chapters and then skip the chapters that follow - except the ones that describe the medical conditions and drugs that interest the reader most. For example, if your not even at risk from diabetes, readers can skip that chapter and just go to the chapters that focus on disease they are being treated for. But the whole book is a good read. It is only 184 pages - including the index. It is to the point. No long narratives and no boring patient testimonials.
One thing, however, the reader should keep in mind that much of the suggested dietary remedies have not had a lot of scientific double blind testing. That's one reason most doctors ignore these types of remedies. The trouble is that there is no profit motive to inspire such research - not to prevent disease or to complement prescription medicine. Financial profit is the Motor driving not only the medical industry but almost all industry.Read more ›
Diabetics on metformin should be aware B12 deficiency can be a problem. PPIs also mess with B12 absorption and can cause real problems. There are many other drugs & supplements listed as well.
If you are taking ANY drug, get this book and read it.
My preference is always natural where possible. Very easy to understand, I've bought this book 2 times and kindle version to share the knowledge. She explains how one medication gives you side effects that many doctors will just write you another script.. She'll recommend supplements dosages, pros/cons, etc... Worth the money!
