    GREAT BOOK - EASY TO READ AND PRACTICAL!

    This is a super book with things you can begin to do today to get you feeling well soon (purchase supplements, begin eating properly for your situation, etc.). Dr. Maccaro is very knowledgable and presents the info in a way that is on an everyday level. There are lots of books on natural and alternative treatments available -- this one truly is practical and easy to understand (it's not 'out there' either).
