And I thought I knew a lot about nutrition... May 27 2014
By Erica - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book would blow any nutritionist's mind. The information is fairly dense, in a technical, biochemical manner, and one would probably benefit from at least a light background in biochemistry to maintain decent retention on the first read through. Still, if you want to know how minerals and metals (especially their lack and toxicity respectively) impact your health, this is the go-to book. In order to improve health, these elements *must* be addressed correctly and Dr. Wilson has laid out the how and why. I have followed the principles in this book and have experienced substantial improvement (and near healing) of a disease I was told that I would have the rest of my life and would only get worse. Out of the hundreds of health books I've read, this one takes the cake. It demonstrates Dr. Wilson's mastery of the principles of holistic health. As the paradigm shifts, this information will save a lot of lives.

Jam Packed with Information June 12 2013
By taaj - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is so much information in this book that you will have to read it, read it again, then read it again to be able to simply get the gist of how it all works together. If you are into mineral balancing at all, you need this as a resource! It is a great investment.

The only "negative" thing is that it expands your thinking so much that it may raise more questions than it answers.

Very comprehensive Aug. 28 2006
By A. Jones - Published on
Format: Paperback
I had a hair analysis done by Dr. Wilson and I also purchased this book. After years of trying to figure out what was wrong with me and why I was so tired, I finally found light at the end of the tunnel. The book helped to explain everything that the analysis showed - it described my symptoms exactly. It was absolutely amazing. I recommend this book, and the services of Dr. Wilson to everyone.

Interesting read March 14 2011
By Jodi-Hummingbird - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Explains how to use hair mineral testing to asess thyroid and adrenal function. Some of the information is also available on his website.

This is a novel approach that fitted my already diagnosed low thyroid and adrenal output diagnoses. The dietary appraches recommended also suit me just about perfectly. The book was spot-on in many ways, for me at least.

I didn't know whether to be pleased that most of my ratios put me in the most severe 'at huge and imminent risk for cardiac events and cancer' - as it is always good to get very severely abnormal and scary test results when you are in fact, very scarily ill and ridiculously severely disabled - or scared.

(I'm housebound and 99% bedbound, and very restricted with speech and tasks of daily living, and have severe cardiac insufficiency, etc. as part of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, or M.E.)

But either way, I appreciated having the information and would recommend this book to others with severe or chronic illness. This is a really interesting read and the book is well designed and organised. If possible, read it together with the author's brilliant book on saunas and lots of the articles on his website.

In his must-read article 'Deep Healing Versus Symptom Removal' Dr Lawrence Wilson writes,

"Deep healing is quite different from symptom removal. Symptom removal is the type of doctoring offered by the medical profession and by most holistic doctors as well. Symptoms are the focus, by and large, and the goal is to make them go away. The problem is that symptoms often point to deeper imbalances that are not usually not addressed.

Deep healing is a much more profound process. It has to do with restoring the body to its former state of health. This means restoring its energy production system, its oxidation rate, its minerals ratios and much more. Symptom removal occurs as a "side effect" of these programs.

Healing therefore usually takes longer and involves lifestyle changes as well. It is more work for both the client and the practitioner. Lifestyle, in fact, is always central and this is a good way to tell if your doctor is focused on symptoms or on deeper healing. In the long run, however, it saves time and lots of money, and may save your life as well."

In his excellent article 'Deep Healing Versus Symptom Removal' Dr Lawrence Wilson explains that symptomatic approaches are so popular because:

"1. They appear simple. This means they are largely superficial and easily understood by doctors and patients alike. Balancing methods are much more difficult to comprehend and to practice, as well.

2. Doctors, drug companies and hospitals love them. This is sadly the case because the patients never really get well. They always come back with the next symptom or problem, so it is good for business. Even the socialized medical systems of Europe, Canada and elsewhere continue this stupid and costly methods of drug medicine. Most holistic physicians are still recommending symptomatic treatments, in my estimation. Many are still interested in having the patient come back many times. Many feel they simply cannot stay in business if they truly healed people. Therefore, no matter what they profess, they are less interested in deeper balancing methods that actually heal the patient at deep levels. However, overall they are much better than conventional medical doctors I have met.

3. Symptomatic approaches ask very little of the patient in most cases. The person is allowed to keep eating junk food, skip adequate rest and sleep and ignore the problems in their lives. "

If you only read one article of Dr Wilson's make it this one!

I embarked on a health journey like no other and being on his program has helped ... Oct. 20 2014
By Nadja S Davidson - Published on
Format: Paperback
After being ill for almost ten years without ever receiving a diagnosis, I came across Dr. Wilson's work. I embarked on a health journey like no other and being on his program has helped me to reverse a lot of chronic and debilitating conditions. The book is a great companion for anybody who is on the Nutritional Balancing Program as well as anybody who is interested in learning more about the body's biochemistry. It is a technical book but a fascinating read nonetheless.
