Life BEFORE death! Leave surviving to the animal kingdom.
my overall health who never be the same. Once you know, you can't unknow. So grateful for this lecture series
Excellent book with interesting scientific information told from the heartfelt perspective of Dr. G. a natural healing physician.
Great for the majority...nutrition part was well done and very informative.
Lost respect for the book and lecturer when she started talking about spiritual aspects. Spiritual aspects are just environmental/social influences....nothing mysterious or unexplainable.
Nutritional parts were very good though.
This audiobook was very practical and easy to understand. The advise in the book was based on solid research and stories Dr. G told help us all in our own journey to be healthier.
I really enjoyed this course. It touches on a variety of topics in medicine, nutrition, spirituality, beliefs, support systems, and so much more. It is well rounded and constructed. Worth listening too. The speaker is calm and takes her time in emphasis so if you like to speed up the discourse I recommend the 1.25 speed setting on your listening devise.
This is a subject I'am already interested in. Dr. G made it so fascinating I was sad when we got to the end of the lecture. I will be listening again!
DR G brings real people and their stories into the lecture. She really cares about patients & people, it makes this series of lectures very interesting.
DR Ornish changing Dr.G life with his request for help with research
Using this knowledge,Let us all work together and make a better, healthier world.
I believe this knowledge will change my life!! Thank you Dr. G
As a health educator I am always interested in medical information and though there was not a lot of new information for me, I was not disappointed in the content. The presenter is very methodical in her presentation and it is easy to understand her concepts. I do get a little weary of the New Age influence in current medical trends, and this was heavy on that, but it is the day we live in and people are certainly entitled to their own religious beliefs.
I like that it is informative and it is based on facts not any one extreme side. I like that it challenged me on a few things i believe in and encouraged to dig deeper.
Covers great topics with good information. Sometimes seems a bit one sided but it is a good series of lectures to get more information and to challenge common beliefs. Enjoyed them very much, even if I didn't always like what i heard
