Worst Health Book Ever

What would have made Natural Health, Natural Medicine better?

If he actually offered something other than the same stupid info you can get anywhere.


Has Natural Health, Natural Medicine turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, and I've read a book of his before. It was great, inciteful and helpful. These two are daylight and dark from each other.


How could the performance have been better?

Seriously monotone.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Serious disappointment in the lack of inciteful information.


Any additional comments?

I could have said what he said in this book and I'll save everyone time. He said, eat only vegetables and legumes, no seasonings and drink only water. Which is as stupid as it gets and the most boring way to eat ever, we weren't given all this food to eat like that. I will tell you a diet that will work. If God made it, eat it. He didn't make coke or margarine or pop tarts. He did make meat and fruit and vegetables and butter. If it had a life source, you absorb it's life source by eating it. If no life source, you get no life. This book is just stupid. There is so much more to what foods can do for you, he wasted a lot of time telling us not to eat anything with flavor. Fake food, fake body. Real food, real body. We are starving ourselves by eating things with no life source. We eat and eat and eat, yet we are starving to death, while weighing 200 pounds. Eat some food.
