STILL, I prefer prevention. Dr. Mercola is a sort of Dr. Weil for the millenium, similar advice, more detail and his own slant on diet and health. Essentially, he advises vegetables, low to no grains--reduces insulin fluctuations, and healthy meats. He insists most people find that they are not served well by a vegan (no milk, meat, egg) diet and actually it could harm them. Yes, some folks are more than well on a vegan diet; it depends on your metabolic type, according to Mercola. For many, meat or fish are important. This is the "Atkins" type diet with an emphasis on healthy choices.
We liked a lot of the recipes in this book. Some were even delicious; "zucchini spaghetti" is a boon for the low-carb eater, thin strips of squash serve as a low-carb base for a tasty sauce. And a home-made sausage patty I liked, plus a spicy Jamaican rub for chicken or fish.
The recipes in "Total Health" are for the most part, pretty easy. The ingredients are what's more difficult to come by--for example, free range poultry, bison (buffalo), raw milk and Alaskan salmon, tested free of detectible mercury.Read more ›

Overall, it is an excellent book.
He further recognized that people were confused about what the right diet was. They had major amounts of conflicting advice about fats and proper nutrition, and were intentionally being misled toward devastating food choices and perceptions of healthcare by the fast food and pharmaceutical industry that had much to gain in the way of money and power from doing so. People deserved the real answer, not information tainted by politics or greed, and Dr. Joseph Mercola's was committed to finding that answer. Dr.Read more ›
