Have you ever lived an experience to a point that it made you change the way you lead our life? For me, this book has achieved that effect.
My husband read it first and kept urging me to read it. I brushed it off, thinking that I know all there is to know about cancer as I did enough of that at University. And besides, I have always been so interested in nutrition to a point that I could tell exactly what micronutrient one begets from which food. So naturally, I was quite resistant. But he kept insisting time after time. He even ordered me a copy in English, and so my excuse bucket ran dry.
What is it about?
In a nutshell, it extrapolates real stories from real people who have lived with cancer, the author himself included. The stories are backed by scientific evidence. There is so much we can do to stay healthy, just by changing our mode of life. It starts with what we actually put in/on our bodies.
The book is a bestseller and has been translated into several languages.
Why do I like the book?
It is written in such a simplified way. Medical terms could be daunting. But not in this book. The late David has written it in a way that a layman would understand it. The examples he cites in his journey are endearing. You can really empathies with him as a person, not just a medical doctor. It is true that sometimes the patient just becomes a number. I know this because I worked for over 10 years in a hospital.
Why do I think you should read it?
I really don’t want to give away too much information but I think you should read the book to discover the goodness of natural healing besides the powerful drugs that we take. Read to understand the power of nutrients contained in food and what to avoid in relation to added chemicals in foods and household products. Read to understand and appreciate the powerful immune system that we are born with and how we can enhance it so that it can continue to do its job, which is to protect us. Be careful though, it might change your lifestyle but on another hand, it is too good not to share!
