    "Quackery at best"

    The whole book is basically advertisement for quackery. "Dr.G" presents food and supplement as if they could cure diseases by themselves. This is preying on vulnerable patients with difficult conditions. Nutrition and exercises are indeed important to maintaining ones health, but diseases are often complex and require medical intervention. By oversimplifying disease model, without providing relevant scientific explanations, "Dr.G" is doing disservice to her patients and to her medical training.

    "Half a success."

    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.

    "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.

    "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.
