This book is about a VEGAN, RAW-FOOD diet. It that's not your preference, or you don't appreciate the dogmatic, quasi-mystical aspects of that lifestyle, this is not for you.
This was highly recommended on a natural cosmetics website I like. But I found it so smug, restrictive and wierdly documented that I couldn't read it. He uses "Kirlian photography" - a photo technique that purportedly records auras - to measure the nutritional value of food. And he claims that staples such as potatoes, beans, lean meat, dairy and nuts are all harmful. I'm going to exchange it for a more practical guide to nutrition.

Too far out in left field
I tried giving this a fair shake since I am, like many, concerned with improving my heath and inner and outer beauty, but when the author started talking about charging water with quartz crystals the concepts got way too out there for me. It also had far too many half baked ideas about physiology and acid-base(alkaline) balance for me to take the underlying concepts in this book seriously. I'm sorry I spent the money for the book. The money would have been better spent on legitimate fiction.
