Good Medicine...Review

About the book:
Attain a Healthier You-Naturally-With this Breakthrough and Doctor-Proven Guide
Filled with the latest thinking on traditional, holistic and alternative care, Good Medicine: A Return to Common Sense represents a sea change in approaching illness and attaining optimal health. This authoritative and easy-to-understand book from renowned Dr. Carol L. Roberts offers a new perspective on how human beings are put together, integrating the physical body and the spirit within. Comprehensive chapters on nutrition, digestion, toxins, heart health and even sex make it easy to customize your own wellness plan. You'll learn:
  • How to break the habit of foods that can literally kill you, and replace them with nutrient-rich superfoods (it's easier than you think)
  • Why your digestive system is the gateway to optimal health, and how to give it a preventive tune-up
  • The man-made toxins that are causing millions to suffer from diseases like asthma and liver damage, and how to get them out of your life
  • Secrets to boosting energy and sexual performance that don't require an expensive prescription
  • -Straight talk on vitamins-what works, why, and how much you should (or shouldn't) be taking
  • Why spirituality is as important as traditional medicine, and how to implement the right balance in your own wellness goals
If you're tired of being sick, tired of taking expensive drugs-or just plain tired-this book will show you how to shape your well being with proven, practical techniques.

This would be a great book for someone who is just getting interested in holistic, alternative healing. Dr. Roberts provides a terrific base from which to start and gives us a basic understanding of the human body and not only how it works, but how it responds to both good and poor care. Good health habits and food choices are important in staying healthy and that is reiterated here.

Dr. Roberts really advocates making wise choices in our health care and discusses different forms of alternative healing and provides additional resources and recommended reading.

I firmly believe that all medicine needs to work together. I don't think that Western medicine has all the answers, just as I don't think that holistic remedies work for every condition. For instance, my husband is a chiropractor, but our son has a cardiologist. However, for someone who is interested in holistic alternatives, this is a wonderful starting point.

Thanks to the author and Bostick Communications for the opportunity to review this book. You can learn more about Carol Roberts, M.D. here. You can purchase your own copy here.
