1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment, Dec 8 2011
This review is from: The Life Bridge (Paperback)
The book was a thinly disguised cover for selling New Chapter supplements. Some of the information seemed credible but they were always quoting research that New Chapter had done. One of the authors owns New Chapter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Eye opener, Sept. 14 2011
Movie was very well done. It covers the biology of stress. Was a little disappointed that it didn't go into how to control stress.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brief & concise, Sept. 14 2011
This book gives you a very quick guide to building your own root cellar. You need to be a bit of a handyman because it is written for someone who has a bit of a background in how to build stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice, quick read., Sept. 14 2011
Love the way David Wolfe gives you the history of the superfood, how to eat it, how much to eat, how it helps you. The book is very interesting even if you don't use the information to improve your health. Surprisingly, some of the foods that are touted as superfoods in magazines didn't make it to David's list and several I'd never heard of did. Camu Camu -who's ever heard of that?

5.0 out of 5 stars Rational hypothesis, Sept. 14 2011
Finally, a theory that makes sense on increased cases of autism, dyslexia, ADHD, depression, schizophrenia and dyspraxia! It all relates to toxic overload -- poor eating, environmental toxins, anti-biotics, OTC & prescription drugs, birth control pills and vaccine damage the gut flora. With each generation, the gut flora gets worse until finally it is so bad that the child presents with one of the above disabilities. For anyone who is pregnant or for anyone who has a child or is afflicted with one of the above disabilitie this book is crucial reading. Diet and supplementation are keys to recovering health and the writer provides a plan for recovery together with recipes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raw food, here I come, July 11 2011
This book does a very good job at explaining the merits of going to a raw good diet and the recipes are quite enjoyable although salty. The author regularly refers back to his earlier book Conscious Eating without repeating the information found in Conscious Eating which became annoying. You need to have a food processor, blender and/or juicer to make the recipes.

The section on developing the best diet for you was confusing so I wasn't able to identify which diet type I am. It could be improved by a question and answer approach. The diet type determines what percentage of protein, carbohydrates and fats/oils you should eat at each meal. However, I did start eating protein, carbohydrates and fats/oils at each meal and I've noticed that it doesn't take as much food to fill me up and I'm not constantly snacking. I'm also losing weight (which wasn't one of my objectives).

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing, July 11 2011
Since I am a sugar addict, I was looking for healthy alternatives to sugar but was disappointed in what the book had to offer. The author seems to be ok with artificial sweeteners (except aspartame) and uses Splenda in his sugar free recipes. Not much about the use of date sugar, stevia, coconut sugar or other alternatives that you see in the health food stores.

On the plus side, he effectively explains how a high fructose diet is harmful and he provides a useful list of foods and their fructose content.
