    Story
    "Insightful! Captivating!"

    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.

    Story
    "Well Presented and Informative"
    Would you listen to The Science of Natural Healing again? Why?

    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.

    "Great Balance"
    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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

    "Life changing!"
    What does Professor Mimi Guarneri bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Professor Guarneri has a passion for this subject which can be heard in her lectures. Her excitement on the subject makes the lectures fun and enjoyable.

    The information in these lectures is life changing! If we all put this information in to practice, our world would be a better place!

    What did you love best about The Science of Natural Healing?

    Science based evidence


    What did you like best about this story?

    Proof is in the pudding


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great summary about everything I've learned about natural healing in the past year. She supports her claims with scientific and lab studies.

    The audible may be a bit slow, I listened to this at 1.25 speed.

    Story
    "This book changed my life."
    What did you love best about The Science of Natural Healing?

    I have known the difference between good food and bad food for a long time, but I didn't understand why some foods were better than others until I listened to this course. The information I gained has changed my life. I have more energy than I have had in years.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Science of Natural Healing?

    When she said that garlic and omega 3 oil would improve my cholesterol more than the drugs would; this was big for me because I have high cholesterol but am have an intolerance for the drugs.


    Have you listened to any of Professor Mimi Guarneri’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I have purchased another and plan on starting it tomorrow.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me glad I bought it.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been making family members, such as my brother who suffers from a lot of the same maladies that I do, purchase and listen to the course.
