After my husband was diagnosed with hypertension, I surfed the web for more information and thought I was pretty well-versed until I read this book. Gives very in-depth and easily understandable explanations of complex terms and it provides an alternative or lifestlye therapy for most complaints. Divided into body sytems, i.e., endocrine, circulatory, respiratory. Gives in-depth information when he recommends dietary changes: for example, what too much salt does in the system and why it is a contributor to hypertension, why leafy greens are good for you and how they chemically help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Lots of information for those who keep up with health trends and are health-conscious. Edition was published in 1997, though, and with rapidly changing information, would like to see a revised edition. A little redundant, but overall, good.
