5.0 out of 5 stars Most important book I've read on health in the last decade, July 29 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this book after listening to an interview by Dr. Mercola with Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. I found the book packed with information that brings a lot of important topics together - Autism, immune health, organic food, digestive health, probiotics, breast feeding, anti-biotics, candida, vaccines... She explains in great detail why the gut is the corner stone to your immune system, why organic food is so important, how the lining of the gut works, how the lining gets damaged and how to repair it. I noticed a positive difference right away when I changed my family's diet. I found also that when I cheat, I see that she is right:-) I also purchased her second book, 'Put Your Heart in Your Mouth' that she says she wrote because so many people asked her about fat, animal meat and arteriosclerosis. This too is a great read. I have purchased at least 11 extra copies now of GAPS and given them out to people. For me, and I read a lot, this was the most important book I've read in the last decade for my health. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking short stories, Jan. 8 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
'What the Dog Saw' is a compilation of Malcolm Gladwell's favorite articles from the last few years at 'The New Yorker'. He is thought provoking and humorous, and manages to find commonalities between obscure topics like mammograms and smart bombs. A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!, March 15 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We recently purchased the Breville Toaster Oven and love it! If you want to hear all the details about this product, there is a link to a You Tube video from the Breville website. It is as wonderful as the video says it is. It is easy to use, and I am not electronically savvy, easy to clean and it cook/bakes beautifully.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this knife, Feb. 6 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this knife because it was on sale after Christmas and I had always wanted to feel the difference between my knives and a pro's. Wow! I don't have professional knives so I can't rate this against another professional brand, but against the average Canadian Tire purchase, it is amazing! It makes cutting sooo easy. I cut myself the first day because it so easily cut through the skin of my avocado. The 4 inch size is nice because it is in the middle. I am putting the rest of the set on my Christmas wish list for next year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource, Feb. 6 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Our pre-natal instructor recommended this book to us. It is easy to read and provides info for on-line videos to watch. It goes through the importance of breastfeeding as well as basic instructions on how to get your baby to latch properly. I had trouble breastfeeding when my daughter was born due to complications with her delivery. This book kept me fighting to breastfeed when I was exhausted, for which I am grateful. Dr. Jack Newman's website and book are also great resources. Good luck!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, Feb. 6 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When 'You've Got Mail' on its own is $15.95, you can't beat two movies for under $10. I can't rate the quality of the picture or the extras compared to other versions, because I haven't seen them, but if you're not picky about that sort of thing and are just adding to your library, can't go wrong. I gave it 4 stars because I love 'You've Got Mail' but wasn't that crazy about 'Must Love Dogs'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for putting the little one to sleep, Feb. 6 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We originally bought the U2 version of the series and found it so helpful for putting our daughter to sleep that we bought this one too. This type of musical adaptation seems to mix well with Coldplay. My daughter usually gets lulled to sleep after the first song. Very relaxing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cadillac of Blenders, Feb. 6 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love this product. I get excited every time I use it! Even the cord is well designed - easy to grab and stores away. The lid has an easy to remove loop. The blender has multiple settings like liquify, puree and smoothie. Smoothie is pre-programmed with a series of rotating speeds. It is large for a blender so a bit heavy, but I wanted glass, so was willing to accept the difference in weight from the plastic. They even supply a handle thing to help dislodge the blade. The blender also looks great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource for parents wanting natural alternatives, Nov. 8 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is well written and easy to read. It is full of easy to follow recipes for everyday problems like milk supply to more intense situations like whooping cough, which is helpful since most books I've seen don't touch on 'vaccine preventable diseases'. It also gives a detailed description of popular herbs every few pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely loved the pictures in this book, Oct. 2 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A friend recommend this book to me when I was pregnant and have subsequently sent it to 3 other friends who are pregnant. I liked this book mostly because of the week by week play of how your body is changing and what is going on with the little miracle in your belly. It's also a great reference book. For those of you in Canada, I would recommend a supplemental canadian resource because some of the information about check-ups and what to expect from your caregiver is different in the States.
