Dr. Hyman gives a great explanation for conventional medicine's faulty approach to chronic disease treatment. Treating the body as a bunch of parts by different specialists that rely on drugs to treat symptoms misses the point of treating the whole person. Drugs more often than not mask symptoms but do nothing to help the body heal.He explains that lifestyle changes are the only reasonable treatments (preventions) for many of the chronic diseases that are so prevalent today. He goes into great detail explaining how many of these inflammation diseases have related symptoms that express themselves differently in each individual.
Clean- the Revolutionary Program to Restore the Body's Natural Ability to Heal Itself by Alejandro Junger. Both authors believe that reducing inflammation, eliminating toxins, allergens and stress can bring about healing in the body.
I thought it was interesting but he kept repeating himself over and over, I don't know if it was poor editing or poor writing. Either way it was a liitle annoying to hear the same studies repeated several times in each section.
Like the author of Clean, Dr. Hyman sells products, supplements and shakes on his website. Both authors go on and on about eliminating processed foods, allergens and toxins then proceed to either recommend some of the same or sell them online. Both sell processed shakes to make their program easy ( after they tell you to eat whole foods). Both have serious allergens on their recommend lists (soy, nuts). Both recommend individual vitamins and mineral supplements even though you may not need them or worse, you could be harmed by them. After telling you that Dr's aren't trained in nutrition (neither were these two- they both still cling to outdated views of nutrition if you examine their dietary recommendations. It's too bad they haven't really done their homework because being almost right is still wrong.
