3.0 out of 5 stars All the stars for the Waeston A Price info only! Jan. 29 2012
By Jodi-Hummingbird TOP 100 REVIEWER
I'm a big fan of the Weston A Price website, as well as Nourishing Traditions and Eat Fat, Lose Fat by Sally Fallon.

But this book... was just not up to that high standard.

For every useful fact on diet there was so many more very ignorant, simplistic and even offensive bits of nonsense, and airy fairy silliness. (About which planet is linked with which metal, and which bodily organ, and how this affects which homeopathic remedies you need, for example.)

The information on vitamin C was of an appalling standard and extremely ignorant and just plain wrong. All the masses of information showing the enourmous benefits of vitamin C were omitted entirely as well.

As for the suggestion that traditional peoples had fewer allergies because they 'took the long view' rather than thinking short term, and the case study of two kids with ear infections where one got well and the other with the same treatment didn't because they had an 'anxious mother' - these were not just eyebrow-raising, but very concerning.

People are abused with this type of 'blame the victim' nonsense all the time, and it is so unfair and can have a devastating impact on the patient, who is just asking to be treated for what is physically wrong with them! In the wrong hands this overemphasis of the mind-body link can be cruel. It is also completely unscientific.

(Sorry if this seems a bit of a rant but just about everyone I know that is ill has had a shocking encounter with a naturopath etc. who loftily expoused these same views and then blamed the victim again when they didn't help, rather than offering any real physical help.)

I'm so so glad I bought Nourishing Traditions and Eat Fat, Lose Fat but got this one from the LIBRARY! It was just not for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Repetition March 4 2012
By wisdom
Enjoyed reading and learned from it. However, given the volume of the book, there is a lot of repetition. It gives the impression that most illnesses can be healed using the same group of foods.

Anyone interested in preparing food to get the most healthy benefits that our body can utilize, needs this source of information. This book also gives you alternative methods of healing. I find that I continually use this book as a resource for how to make yogurt, kefir and many other healthy foods that can be made at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possible survival guide. Sept. 28 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book may be a guide for survival in a world being over whelmed by Monsanto and Big Pharmaceutical companies.

Your doctor has become your worst enemy using synthetic antibiotics which are resulting in the development of super bugs that cannot be controlled.

5.0 out of 5 stars medically informative Aug. 29 2010
i have read half the book at this point. i find it difficult to read as a novel. it reveals the spiritual nature of ourselves and a different way to relate to
ourselves, others and objects...all as a form of energy. very scientific and medically extensive informative about the nature of many popular diseases
