This remarkable book is long overdue. It provides the
insights essential for the lay reader to take personal
control of their long-term health, and physical and
emotional well-being. It empowers and educates the non-
doctor like no book before it. The complexities and
limitations of both modern medicine and alternative
therapies, are explained in a way that is entertaining
and easy to understand. More importantly however, the
book provides access to state-of-the-art advice, not only
for effective diet and weight control, but also for side-
stepping Syndrome X and the other common serious
illnesses, that confront all of us in the new millennium.
Using a patient-centred and evidence-based approach, it
reflects the dramatic changes in the way medical care
will be delivered in the future i.e. as an equal and
mutually respectful partnership between well-informed
patient and hopefully, well-informed doctor. Although
written to provide the perfect medical advice manual for
the lay public, the book is an excellent source of
current medical knowledge, relating to the common
diseases, and provokes and challenges in such a way, that
it is likely to be widely read by the profession at
large.
