This title is the second I have read by Don Colbert, and it is MUCH better than my first, "Toxic Relief." In this book Colbert describes seven pillars of health crucial to anyone seeking to live a healthy lifestyle: water, sleep and rest, living food, exercise, detoxification, nutritional supplements, and coping with stress. His comments on water, sleep and rest, and coping with stress are probably familiar to most readers. In these areas, he reinforces well what many people already have learned. His comments on living food, detoxification and nutritional supplements however, are fairly unique but still based squarely on medical and biblical insights. I recommend this book highly. It will take some time for me to implement everything he prescribes -- in fact, I may never implement everything he prescribes here. Still, he is very much on the right track, and offered a well-balanced, biblical approach to health and well-being that is unrivaled among contemporary authors.
This book is the best health book I've ever read. It's well written. Easy for the non-medical person to read and understand. I have purchase many copies to give to family and friends. It took my sister a while to start reading it, but now that she's started, she is seeing the light and putting the information to good use. Also, I speak to anyone that is going through any physical challenges that relates to any of the material in the book, I recommend that they get hold of a copy of this book. It is certainly a blessing to me!
Im not through yet but find the content very well written, supported and useful. Yet, its a pity that Dr Colbert has this urge and need to stress what good Christian he is on almost every page by bringing in those "divine" elements. The book could have been so much better without it!
