Disclaimer: I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any form of compensation.
Being someone who has had major health issues most of her life, I have had to look into researching the illnesses and treatments myself. I have become my own healthcare advocate.
I feel that this book has helped to prepare me for my next battle with the doctors. I have been able to learn quite a number of things that I can present to my physicians in order to help gain better health.
Dr. Steven Goldsmith has done exhaustive research on how we can increase our health by using “a hair of the dog” techniques. In many places, this is already the case. For instance, vaccinations are dead forms of the diseases that we are injected with in order to help our bodies build up an immunity. Another perfect example is homeopathic treatments.
One of the things that I loved is how Dr. Goldsmith interspersed many anecdotes in amongst all his research findings. This helped make the reading much easier instead of just having it like a textbook. It became much more personal.
This is a wonderfully written book and I highly recommend it for anyone who is trying to gain their health back.
