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.
