Overview

A well-researched, provocative guide revealing the secrets of natural healthcare, how to avoid marketing hype and the health-suppressing politics of modern medicine and food processors.

Despite the widespread dependence of the Western world on prescription and over-the-counter medications, Dr. Shayne lets you discover hidden secrets: that most illnesses are due to toxins, stress and "foul-nutrition;" and that "no illness or disease is ever caused by a drug deficiency." Drugs don't build health, nutrients do! Learn how the nutrients within foods are the building blocks to health and recovery, yet most people in our modern world are trying to live on dead, processed foods that cannot support life. Dr. Shayne boldly uncovers the health-destroying politics of modern medicine, marketing and advertising that keeps us out of touch with the wondrous healing powers of nature.

    An Answer to the Politics of Modern Medicine

    Dr. Shayne's book is an excellent review about how the politics of modern medicine has for years kept us from realizing that we have the ability to control our own state of health. It's about time we wake up to the fact that giant corporations are playing games with our health and our purchasing decisions. This book is a wake-up call that benefits everyone!
