Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I found parts to be interesting and the description and examples of integrative medicine to be for the most part useful; there is such a strong focus on supplements and vitamins that I would have expected some discussion of how well the body absorbs supplements compared to getting them through food, but that topic was not addressed.
Were the concepts of this book easy to follow, or were they too technical?
It was easy to follow throughout. There was a concerted emphasis on evidence based information for the first two thirds then a marked departure into a new age spiritual focus that I found less useful.
Would you be willing to try another one of Professor Mimi Guarneri’s performances?
Dr. Guarneri seems sincere but her style is not pleasing. She speaks very slowly and there are multiple interminable pauses. I found toward the end that speeding up to 1.5x made things better.

The author presents health choices based on proven research. She debunks both common myths and modern medicine's lack of understanding of the effects of good nutrition and appropriate supplement choices. The presentation style is very natural, easy to understand, not monotonous. However, she speaks very slowly so I had to increase the speed to 1.25 and 1.5 times. Otherwise it was excellent.

To not purchase this if you're looking for an objective review of the current science on health. Author approaches subjects with anecdotal evidence and confirmation bias.

Concepts like strengthening the soil, nutritious diet, exercise, spirituality......are all explained in a way that appeals to us on an intellectual level as well as intuitive level. Prevention, really is the best intervention. And the chapter on environment was really an eye opener....very informative too. Dr Guarneri's audio performance is also quite engaging. Thanks for this wonderful course.
An enthusiastic professor, great information, science healing and health made easy to understand. It would be hard not to make changes for the better after listening to these lectures.
