Root cause of illness exposed through new discoveries...with breakthrough treatments you can do everyday! I am gradually implementing these things into my life, especially since I recently moved to an arid climate and especially since I am older now. But everyone will profit from reading this book...and my Chi Gong teacher has already been teaching about "fascia" which will blow your mind.

I've learned so much from this book. Next time I see the doctor he won't be telling me that I'm dehydrated. I did receive that news more than once on my reports. This is such an amazing complete book. It contains lots of interesting information about how our bodies work. It also contains lots of recipes, and plans. It has information about doing an elimination diet, and gives a lot of other references. I've read this in about three days and started doing their suggestions immediately. I've already lost three pounds. I'm excited to continue this journey.
