Book Description

Feb. 15 2006 0972732845 978-0972732840 2nd Revised edition
The author applies a no-nonsense approach to dieting, exercising, disease treating, and other aspects of everyday life. Our looks, longevity, as well as our physical and mental conditions result from the way we eat, breathe, and take care of all our physical and psychological needs. The question is not limited to nutrition only, as is the case of dieting programs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your health and wellbeing are in your own hands Oct. 18 2007
By Dobrin
I am usually very skeptical about various claims that can be found in the books written by many "self-healers" and other gurus. The author however, does not over-promise in any chapter of his book, in spite of its catchy title.

It is a good compilation of safe-and-sound recommendations for longevity and healthy living. I did smile at some of them (walking bare footed, etc.) but even if I do not believe in their direct benefits, they might still bring about good results for those who do believe (placebo effect). In any case, none of the recommendations can in any way be harmful as most of the remedies contain products used by many of us on a daily basis.

Other advice, like proper food combination, periodic fasting, taking hot and cold baths, using sauna, drinking pure mineral water, taking daily walks, etc, are just common sense and indeed very beneficial for our mental and physical conditions. By the way, the author clearly states that he is not a medical doctor himself but that he just compiled the wisdom of many nations - from Europe, via Tibet, to old China. As a result, some of the ingredients suggested in certain remedies can be difficult to obtain in North America. For example kefir. It is a dairy product, with well known health benefits, that is very popular in Europe but hardly ever obtainable in the US, except for specialty organic food shops.

There are a few Apendices at the end of the book. Some of them are too much on the side of "New Age" and does not really fit my analitical mind. However it might be of some interest for those who like to believe in astrology, Horoscope etc. I think it is fine to read it as an interesting trivia, especially since this is presented in the Apendices -- clearly outside of the main body of the book.

The best book I have had in my hands (except my Holy Book). I bought a lot of copies (presents for my friends, coworkers, family... Everybody amazed. Definitely the book I would recommend to everybody. Waiting for translation to Croatian-Serbian-Bosnian languages.

1.0 out of 5 stars interesting through to ridiculous Jan. 28 2008
By Xandria
I'll grant that this book has some interesting information in it but it does not have any footnotes to aid one in finding out where the information was gleaned from. Also things like the simplification of one's character deduced by eye color is simply idiotic (pg. 146). This book does NOTHING to aid someone who is already experiencing chronic health problems. If you are looking for help for such conditions, look elsewhere.

I bought this book and was really disappointed in it. You are better off with Dr. Hyman's books. You can also get better information for the cost of an internet hookup. Not worth it overall.

1.0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't buy this trash with your money Aug. 12 2009
Shameless pseudoscientific garbage from someone in trouble with the FTC. To paraphrase Jeff Foxworthy, "You might be an idiot if you spend good money on this book." As someone with a Ph.D. in Plant Science, it saddens me that real trees were used to manufacture this thing. If you have a need to be paranoid about something, direct it towards the IRS, the new world order, or Roswell aliens. Save your money and your health and pass this one up. If ever there was a good argument for book burning this would be it. You have to give it one star or the system won't accept the review -too bad, it should get a minus 5 stars IMHO. I do get good use out of it. I wave it around in front of my Basic Biology class every Fall semester as an example of the very real dangers associated with poor science literacy.
