From the Author
My purpose for writing Wellness Piece by Piece was to give readers hope. That, and a 17-year "shortcut to wellness" by candidly discussing the pieces of my own chronic health puzzle. I believe my book will greatly benefit anyone that has struggled with chronic conditions; those long-lasting health issues that are resistant to quick fixes. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Pat outlines the details of his tedious labors, uncovering why he continued to stay sick. Take special note of his message: until you erradicate the offending agent, supplements will have limited results, if any, as in my case and many others, and the liver doesn't know the difference between Prozac and Heroin. All metals are poison. Heart attack? Diabetes? Parkinsons? AIDS? All symptoms.
Pat gives much insight into what HAS helped him mitigate against the toxic load on the body while he was searching for the answer, and breaks down the list of myths that will be encountered in the healing fields, when enough time is spent hunting down the tiger. He also outlines what hasn't been effective to which I also concur in my own experience.
Wellness Piece by Piece is easy to read, hard to put down, and helps to reinforce you can get well when all seems hopeless.
Knowing metals may not even show up on a challenge test until you are chelating for a few months, the word out there by other chronic sufferers, is chelate anyway. The results [or lack thereof] will be revealed soon enough. Pat's book reveals what chelating agents are NOT effective, and with DMSA now available without prescription, anyone can start accomplishing results.
Disease doesn't appear overnight. This book is a must read for chronic sufferers and those who never want to get sick and who have probably already started the disease process and don't even know it! You can also find this book on Pat's Jigsaw Health website.
Thanks, Pat, for getting the word out. With enough available knowledge, people can stop the abuse of medical and health "care" and discover the answer lies in those who have come before them.
Sullivan does not have extensive scientific knowledge, or any special background for understanding nutrition. However, his concepts are mostly in agreement with my book HONEST NUTRITION, for which I worked more that 50 hours/page, and with a background in medicine, physiology and biochemistry. I wonder how he could do so well.
He found the right sources. Whether by luck or by really good sense, he found information that helped him find health, and he had the judgement to reject unhelpful sources and therapies. Also, by personal experience, he learned to understand the disfunctional ways the American medicine system works.
Though not paleo, the book is mostly consistent with paleo diets. It is also mostly consistent with Weston A. Price foundation nutrition, and somehat lacking in Orthomolecular therapies. If he had known what intravenous high dose vitamin C could do for infections, and if he knew more about the function of the endobiome (microbiome), the book could help more people. He had the kind of gut problems that might have been solved with fecal transfer.
The emphasis is somewhat slanted because of his own problems, which I see as a lack of good biochemical mechanisms for excretion of heavy metals, mercury in particular. With several amalgams in his mouth, that was a serious concern. While many of us have amalgam fillings and some of us do not excrete mercury well (a problem with autistic children), most of us do not have such obvious problems. However, most of us can benefit from the therapies and nutrition that were so vital to this author.
One big problem. He had the money to get any therapy as needed. Most of us do not have access to many of the tests and therapies he used.
