Shame on the medical profession for ommitting this most valuable diagnostic and treatment information from the training of doctors. Again, it comes down to the fact that no pharmaceutical company or patent holder stands to become rich from such simple health care. Instead, millions of people grope desperately as their lives disolve around them, all because no one has understood the effective diagnosis and treatment as outlined in this book. I spent 25 years trying to find these answers - and when I did - reading this book gave me the personal and medical ammunition to turn my health around immediately. Although it will be several months before I completely recover - (whats a couple of months after 25 years!) - I feel better after less than a few weeks.
I read the book at one sitting. The next morning my husband read it in one sitting and immediately had the vocabulary and understanding to explain to weary and unsupportive relatives that I was not a hypocondriac. That was worth the price of the book alone. Although I have a Doctor who will oversee the treatment for me - I have insisted on using Dr. Gilbere's plan. She has tested and found the best products - I don't have to be my own Dr. anymore - finally - someone who knows more than I do. I look forward to the sequel. which is due shortly.

As an environmental health constultant, and as a long-term MCS patient myself (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities), I believe the adage, "a patient doesn't care how much you know, but rather how much you care." I perceive Dr. Gilbere's book to be a very caring, self-disclosing case history of a health-care professional who has been successful in her own healing odyssey and is now passionate about sharing her considerable insights and strategies with her readers.
I found her writing style to be clear, communicative and inviting. I especially liked her use of the "FLASHBACK" technique, which personalized her journey along the road to improved health. Her Product Resource List, Bibliography and Resources for Testing alone, would be more than worth the price of this text.
As someone with MCS, I very much appreciated her "How I Get Out of An Allergic Reaction" gameplan. It is a handy and efficacious "first aid" map for the environmentally injured who often can't think clearly and rationally for the duration of a reaction.
My one criticism of this book is that it could benefit from some editing (spelling, grammar, syntax). But nowhere did I find that these "typos" impacted negatively on the ability of Dr. Gilbere to state her case.
Health-care choices are very subjective. To those who feel safe only in the hands of mainstream, traditional medicine, this book may appear radical. But for those of us who want to take responsibility for our wellness and for those of us who are intolerant of most prescription medications, this book offers something priceless: a proven course of therapy and HOPE.

This is a frustrating book to write a review about. This subject really needs a book like this; professionally published, nicely formatted, attractively done, well advertised - something that the general public can latch onto and absorb. The information is important and advanced in a simple and easy to read fashion.... But who edited this book? It either appears to have been written rapidly with little concern for sentence structure or perhaps Dr. Gilbere is originally a foreign speaker? This is one of the poorest written book I have come across. Alot of work went into producing, formatting, and advertising this book. Maybe next time they will put some into editing. Not really a big problem given that theres alot of good info and this is a subject crying out for alternative points of view.

I have had MCS, fibromyalgia, leaky gut for over twenty years. I have read a plethoria of books and have been to the most notable in this field without relief. After reading this book and following Dr,. Gloria Gilbere's program I am, for the first time in years, experiencing less symptoms, and am feeling healthier than I thought possible. Dr Gilbere works closely with me, has the patience of a saint, considering how complicated and overwhelming this illness can be, and I get a sense that she not only cares about me but have found her to go above and beyound the call of duty. This book will change your life but one needs to work hard by sticking diligently with teh program. It then will transform your life. good luck and happy reading. Jennifer Millett New York

As a sufferer from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity for 11 years, I found this book to be extremely enlightening on the subject of healing from this condition based on correcting the colon disorder that is underlying it. This book does not just help the reader learn how to treat symptoms, but instead shows how to correct the REAL problem so that true healing can then take place - I believe if we give our bodies half a chance, they will recover, as shown by this book. The book is very easy to understand, which is great for people like me with chemically-induced "brain fog"! I highly recommend this book to anyone suffering from MCS, CFS, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, or any of the autoimmune disorders!
