I bought and read this book in the 90's, loaned it out. Bought and read it again 10 years later. Very practical, Godly and healthy advice. Great book to keep in your library and refer back to it as often as needed.
A truly life-changing book! I've had poor health for a long time, and I can finally understand why it may be at least partly my own fault, for not having adhered to God's ways. As a Christian finally growing in the faith (no longer a passive one!) I can recommend this book to anyone who finds themselves not feeling as well as they should. The only drawbacks I see in the book is: 1.) She appears to advocate a ritualistic approach to fasting, which I'm unable to find any commands in the Bible to do so (correct me if I'm wrong!), though there are certainly times it tells of people doing so for spiritual causes. 2.) Although she advocates the use of herbs, she appears to denounce the use of spices without giving any reason for it. I understand her denouncing the use of salt, but I see no reason to eliminate it altogether, but to drastically reduce it's use instead. Of course, the book was written back when everyone thought too much salt caused high blood pressure, so that likely explains that bias, but why the one against spices? Aside from those points, I've found this book a remarkable eye-opener, and I'm already feeling better than I have in a long while for following her guidelines, and am losing weight without even trying!
This book is written in a way that is non-judgmental and is very easy to follow. Stormie Omartian has a way of communicating that helps her readers to know God more fully in every way: physically, emotionally, mentally. The seven steps are God-ordained and easy to follow. Who could not feel better following them? This is a marvelous book.
