Book Reviews:

“Killing Cancer Not People”
by Robert G. Wright
Excellent compilation of natural/holistic and effective approaches to reversing and preventing cancer. Everyone should read this book, whether they have cancer or not. You are more likely to die from allopathic cancer treatment then you are from cancer itself. At least be truly informed of your situation, if you have cancer, than by merelylistening to your own doctor.

“Nourishing Traditions”
by Sally Fallon 

Although listed as a cookbook on Amazon, this book is far more. It is an outstanding view into a traditional, nutrient-dense diet. It gives great insight into the American diet and you begin realize that we are basically making ourselves ill through our diet. This is always the first book I recommend people purchase who seek a healthier life for themselves and their families:

“Eat Fat, Lose Fat: The Healthy Alternative to Trans Fats and Know Your Fats: The Complete Primer for Understanding the Nutrition of Fats, Oils and Cholesterol
both by Mary Enig

Great advice for losing those last few pounds and reducing your chances of heart disease and cancer. An overall approach to reducing inflammation.

“Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight and Find Your Way Back to Health”
By Dr. William Davis
Wheat was the most difficult thing for me to eliminate from my diet, understandably after reading Dr. Davis’ book. But I also know when I cheat and have some wheat now and then, I pay for it for days. As I searched for answers to my own health problems, one issue which continued to raise its ugly head was inflammation. Although many books addressed how to ease inflammation with various nutrients, this book goes deeply into the root sources. Highly Recommended!

“The Untold Story of Milk: The History, Politics and Science of Nature’s Perfect Food”
by Ron Schmid
I am now almost addicted to raw milk. I LOVE it!!. I make yogurt from it and now drink about 1½ gallons a week. It is wonderful. This book gives the history of milk production and pasteurization and the politics used to keep it from us. It also gives one of the better histories of the saturated fat/heart disease myth. Again, Highly Recommended

“The Whole Soy Story: The Dark Side of America’s Favorite Health Food”
by Kaayla T. Daniel
For those that think soy is a “health food” this book is especially for you. It goes into the history of soy, the marketing and the supporters, the politics and the naysayers. By the end of the book, you’ll be checking every label of every product you use for soy and throwing it all away.

“Hypothyroidism Type 2: The Epidemic”
by Dr. Mark Starr
Dr. Starr’s interview on Late Night Coast to Coast radio changed my view and approach to my own health issues.

“Drugs That Don’t Work and Natural Therapies That Do!”
by Dr. David Brownstein.
This book is eye-opening, especially if you are taking statin drugs or drugs to “prevent” osteoporosis. Like all of Dr. Brownstein’s books, it is packed with more information than you can absorb in the first reading.

“Iodine: Why You Need It and Why You Can’t Live Without It”
by Dr. David Brownstein 

This was the first book I read after being diagnosed with heart failure. It set the tone for my search for answers. Iodine is as close to a “miracle drug” as can exist. No health library is complete without this book

“Statin Drugs, Side Effects and the Misguided War on Cholesterol”
by Dr. Duane Graveline
The ultimate guide to the dangers of statin drugs and why chasing cholesterol blood levels will not stop heart disease. The book also covers the dangerous, often lethal side-effects of statin drugs.

“Heart Disease: What Your Doctor Won’t Tell You”
by Dr. Rodger Murphree
This was one of the first books I read after my diagnosis. I have since referred back to it many times in seeking answers. Don’t wait until having a heart attack before asking the questions raised in this book.

“Malignant Medical Myths: Why Medical Treatment Causes 200,000 Death in the USA each Year and How to Protect Yourself”
by Joel Kaufman 

This is an extremely comprehensive work although not particularly written for the layman. It is worth plowing through for its insights into health, disease and the myths surrounding them.

“Solved: The Riddle of Heart Attacks”
by Dr. Broda Barnes
This book is no longer in print but is available from the Broda Barnes foundation as a bound copy. It is worth the read, especially to see how research is ignored if it goes against “conventional thinking.” Barnes’ research is fascinating and is often quoted by other doctors investigating heart attacks and heart disease.

“Overcoming Thyroid Disorders” and “The Miracle of Natural Hormones”
both by Dr. David Brownstein
In retrospect, I wish these two had been the first books I read in addressing my heart failure. But, since I was never told I had a thyroid/hormone problem, I only read these out of curiosity. As I read, I saw myself in its pages. They set the tone for my treatment and further changes in my life. 

“Minding My Mitochondria” 
by Dr. Terry Wahls 

Dr. Wahls shares her amazing and inspirational recovery from Multiple Sclerosis through her diet and shares this information with everyone. This program also benefits those with Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimers. Highly Recommended.
