Great but Expensive Advice

I have seen Susanne on a TV program recently and this lady really knows what she is talking about. It is not just unsubstantiated fluff, like in case of some other authors. When you listen to her and when you watch her, you see that she is real, that she knows her stuff...
I have seen Susanne on a TV program recently and this lady really knows what she is talking about. It is not just unsubstantiated fluff, like in case of some other authors. When you listen to her and when you watch her, you see that she is real, that she knows her stuff, and that she is actually living it. So, when Suzanne tells me that we are able to live past 100 years in a good health it does get my attention. However, to achieve that we do need to take our health seriously and be proactive.

In "Brakthrough: Eight Steps to Wellness" Suzanne talks about a better life, a healthier life, and a life of youthful energy. Not only she explores the newest developments in the science of longevity and anti-aging but she also gives specific advice of what we need to do to attain our longevity goals. These are the secret of youthfulness that everyone can achieve. Suzanne's "approach to health gives you back your lean body, shining hair, and thick skin", as long as you watch your nutrition, exercise, and live in a toxic-free environment.

However, I have to take one star off the rating for THE COST OF IT ALL! Although her general attitude seems to be against the mainstream medical community, a lot of the remedies that Suzanne offers are very expensive. It is true that we might extend our lives to over 100 but we will also not be able to retire until after late nineties to be able to afford the exact modus operandi that Suzanne does in her own health care. Therefore for anyone with a lower income I highly recommend "Can We Live 150 Years" for much more affordable alternatives to Suzanne's approach. The author is a former head of Center for Health Sciences in Moscow and his books are filled with great advice for living healthy live, proper combining of foods, detoxification, correcting spine problems, and much more. The important thing is that his remedies are based on ingredients readily available in most common households. Another great book of this author is "Cure the Incurable".

I did not have to read much to know that this book was way beyond what I expected. I thought this may shed light on alternative health food products however it had more to do with what Suzanne is doing and her path to wellness....which I felt the average person would not be able to afford nor would they want to go to these extremes...I was disappointed - I thought this would be a partner to the People's Pharamacy books - and give some affordable and sensible practices...

    Awesome!!!!

    One of the best books i have ever read. Extremely informative.  Her interviews are with very well respected doctors.  The doctors know the latest information on the subjects that are discussed.  Very enlightening on all levels.  Could read again and again.  I will always use it as a reference book.  The only books i read about concern health related issues, so i feel as though i have a vast knowledge of many subjects that deal with those.  To my surprise there was ALOT of information i had not tapped into thus far.  The doctors in this book have taught me alot and i am so thankful to Suzanne Somers for making such great choices with the doctors she interviewed.  I highly recommend this book to everyone.  It will change your life.  I have told all my friends and family to buy it.  Thanks to Suzanne Somers for her dedication, fearlessness and hard work that went into this book.

    "BREAKTHROUGH" BY Suzanne Somers is f a b u l o u s !!

    This is a book that I will not be lending out, instead I will be suggesting to friends that they buy a copy of their own. That's how good it is. Thank you Suzanne, for sending out this information to all of us!

    Never Would Have Imagined from a "Ditzy Blonde"

    This book can save your life! Very credible sources and unrefutable evidence. Don't let the Three's company TV show role she is known for fool you. This woman has much more to offer than a dumb blonde in a comedy series show.
