I'm only half way through this book right now, and even though it's the same age as me (lol) it's packed full of information. Very informative on how each part of the body works and how everything is connected so if one thing isn't working, this isn't working or this is overloaded and this will happen etc. I have gastro-paresis (over 5 years) and type one diabetes (over 21 years) so I've been researching and learning about foods and the digestive system for awhile. I'm all for the natural way of healing too. I make all my own foods from scratch so that I know EXACTLY what is in my foods, etc and am even a fitness coach to try and help others too with my knowledge. This book is definitely helping me a lot! I'm vegetarian, and was actually surprised at how many recipes were available to that lifestyle. They're also quite simple to make and simple ingredients mostly. I've made a few so far and they were delicious! I'm looking forward to finishing this book and gaining all the knowledge I can. I also ordered the second one too.
I have had this book before but loaned it out and never got it back. I followed Matsen's program of eating, and not only lost weight but put my body back into good working order. I found out the things that I was eating that were not healthy, and omitted them from my diet, I grew to understand how my body works when I consume food, and so enjoyed learning from the clever pictures in the book. I am again going to use this book to help me get back into health again. I have even ordered one for a friend who is having trouble with her body so she can learn for herself how it works. I thank John Matsen every day for the things he has taught me.
The book arrived on time and was packed very well. I would recommend them for any and all your book needs. If you are like me and demand good service, order from these people and you will not be let down.
