Twenty direct, easily referenced chapters, each with recommendations for herbs and supplements (many not inexpensive), exercises, even reflexology pressure points. Take your pick of ailments and treatments. The author offers all you could wish for. If you suffer from IBS, go right to chapter 14. There's much useful and sensible info here along with a plethora of alternative therapies and theses (some presented with too much certainty--the controversial candida yeast connection, for example, or recommendations to "flush out" your gall bladder by drinking a "pint" of olive oil upon retiring and arising!). But thoughtful readers will probably want to supplement this text with one that is more mainstream, cautious and personal in its approach. Check out titles by Janowitz and Van Vorous.

Dr. Lindsey Berkson's digestion book has given me inspiration and motivation to travel the road to sound health for not only the body, but for body, mind, soul and spirit. As a registered nurse, I found Dr. Berkson's book an excellent resource for healing that gives abundant, ready to use, practical information on health for the whole person. This is a book that I do recommend to my nurse colleagues as well as my patients because it is written with great knowledge, wisdom, gentleness and warmth. Thank you Dr. Lindsey Berkson!
