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.
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
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!
Science based evidence
Proof is in the pudding
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.
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.
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.
No, but I have purchased another and plan on starting it tomorrow.
It made me glad I bought it.
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.
