This is a very interesting, useful and infinitely helpful book that combines the best aspects of modern medicine and Ayurveda, the Science of Life, to create an instructional guide to health and wellbeing that few of us have experienced in the modern world.
I feel healthier and more balanced than I have in 20 years! Also I have lost 4 inches around my waist, and feel drawn naturally toward healthier choices and I'm only on step I of 4. I look forward to a bright future now. Thanks Dr.Chaudhary!

For anyone looking to detox and to retrain your body for weight loss, this book is a great addition to your library. I say that because, like many eternal dieters, I have numerous books on weight loss. These books run the gamut from real age techniques to sugar elimination to shredding and more. This book takes a different approach. It is a cultural analysis of health and food habits. It is not the only book that assesses the American processed food obsession from a cultural perspective. The new fad in dieting, bone broth soups, which this book references, is based on Asian food traditions. However, Prime highlights the sad truth of what can happen to a culture that loses control of the ingredients in the foods placed on the plate. In America, much of the processing that goes into food manufacture yields results that our bodies do not recognize as food. The reality is that manufacturers are more focused on formulating addictive and long-lasting food equivalents. Chaudhary's approach is about freeing ourselves from the addiction to processed Franken-foods. I loved the book, and appreciate the fact that Chaudhary respects the difficulties inherent in the process of retraining both our bodies, and our brains, to recognize real food again -- after generations (think 1950's tv dinners to present day) of a cultural addiction to processed food stuffs that have no relation to health or nutrition. I only gave 4 stars because Chaudhary is a doctor. I would have, therefore, appreciated case studies with a little more academic rigor. She uses her patients, and herself, as sample populations. I understand that her own experiences led her to have more sympathy for real dieters, but it would have been nice to see additional examples from a variety of demographic groups, and to have a slightly more quantitative analysis as underlying support of her premise. That being said, this is an outstanding and helpful book on 2 important aspects of weight loss -- detoxification and mental priming.
