    5-0 out of 5 stars Priceless
    Most people who give this book negative ratings are just plain ignorant or cheap morons. The guy has done a ton of research to bring us this kind of information and he risks his life to expose the scumbag ripoffs in the food and drug industry. This book just shows how we Americans are brainwashed, tamed sheep, swollowing what we're given. Most of American food is sick and the sickness passes onto people. The milk you drink is filled with pesticides and growth hormones and even though all the scientists will say it doesn't have any effect on people, they're lying, why?because they'll get sued. That's right, there is no freedom of speech, even doctors have to watch their mouth. The fact is that the growth hormones and pesticides do transform into your body. Just why do you think the Canadians refused to feed their cows growth hormones?because they know what the effects are but us Americans, we're ignorant and lazy and we don't care. That is our attitude.So here's a guy that sheds some truth on what's going on in the food/drug industry and there's still morons who will badmouth him for doing so or some idiots who thought they'll pick up this book and all their problems will be solved. It makes me mad that there's such people out there who can misinterpret a book so badly.The guy never says you should get off your prescription drugs or try natural remedies before consulting with your doctor, it is written on the very first pages for crying out loud yet people come on here and write ridiculous reviews.Again, these must be the lazy couch potatoes who think picking up a book will cure their illness. No, you need to get off your butt on this one. If you want to be spoonfed pills, continue with your local pharmacy. I could go on forever how great this book is but I'll just say, ignore all the idiotic negative reviews and get this book and follow what it says,it's probably the best thing you can do for yourself. It's worth it's weight in gold.

    1-0 out of 5 stars This Book Was A Waste of Money!
    This book was just terrible.This guy is paranoid and he thinks everything is a conspiracy.Just hog wash-Don't waist your money!

    1-0 out of 5 stars A Re-Directory for information
    What little information this book tells you about those "natural cures" are already common knowledge. It goes on and on, ad nauseum, about corruption. If you want more information about certain alleged cures, the book tells you to go to certain websites, and when you get there, you have to pay. It's like buying a cookbook that hardly has any recipes, and telling you that you have to go online and pay up front. What's the point of buying the book if it only has a few recipes? ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Money
    I was turned off immediately after reading pages and pages of "I'm not a crook" testimony by the author--his explanation of his felony convictions--elaborations on why the FTC brought charges against him. I kept wondering, when does he get to the natural cures?Eventually, he mentions a few, scantly--then refers you to his website for more information.When you enter the website, it offers information on natural cures for an additional registration fee. Outrageous!This horse's track record speaks for itself.

    5-0 out of 5 stars all in one eye-opening cures
    Many of Kevin's thoughts and ideas are what we know intuitively deep down inside.Money feeds greed which feeds corruption.The government falls into power and uses money to feed that power - the government as an entitiy does not have each individual's best interest at heart.American's are the most unhealthy nation in the world.We are like sheep to ads and the government and doctors.We as Americans need to realize that we are the government and doctor's customers. The money (which feeds the power) comes from our paychecks!!!

    This is an excellent read for any acupuncture student, practitioner or enthusiast!Deadman's language is poetry.The points come alive when reading this text!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Peter Deadman's A Manual of Acupuncture
    Not possible to find a better English language reference source than this book. I have used the book in hard copy but prefer it on CD. Quick to find items using CD and a notebook and CD weigh less that the actual manual. The pronunciations that come with the book on CD seem accurate, depending on the area from whence your Chinese comes. Good background data for all point locations and rationale for their use.

    3-0 out of 5 stars I'm on day 9...
    And I'm not impressed.Never again!This has been torture.I'm more energetic when I wake up in the morning, but that's about the only positive.I admit I made some modifications: used reconstituted, bottled lemon juice, for two days I had just water, and one day apple cider.I'm going to keep going until day 10 just for the sense of accomplishment.Anyway, I've been trying to clear up my allergies and skin problems, and so far this has not seemed much help.I don't know, maybe it has helped but I don't realize it.Next I'm going to try using oxy-powder to cleanse the gunk from the colon in a simple, non-torturous way (just have to take some pills) and also do a series of gallbladder/liver flushes.My point is, the Master Cleanser is just one part of detox-ing: it is a kidney flush, but one would be well-advised to do a liver-gallbladder flush right afterwards.This book has helped many people, I'm sure, but so far my experience has told me that it's not for me.I'd only do this again as a last resort.Here are some helpful sites: curezone and [...].That's just my opinion.To all the people out there struggling with health problems, good luck, and don't give up, and don't let the conventional medical industry fool you into assuming there is no cure for whatever you have, and don't let irrational skeptics sway you!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good program
    I did alot of research on this clense before i started and made a commitment to try it.I sort of eased into the diet by having 1 small meal a day consisting of organic spinach salad.On say 2 of the wean i experienced a terrible headache but i honestly believe that after 20 years of drinking pepsi with everything- this was simply caffeine withdrawl.Those who make it sound easy will fool you into failing.The lemonade will give you what you need, but after a lifetime of eating you will definately crave food.It will get easier but never easy.You have to commit yourself.I compare this to quitting smoking which is my next task.
    4-0 out of 5 stars How often do you take food for granted?
    I once heard on a health program that most of us have 'stuff' in us (in our intestines) that's at least two months old!Wouldn't that be great to remove all of that gunk residing in your intestines and toxins in other parts of your body?The Master Cleanse was a great way to do it for me.It was a bit challenging because I *love* food, and just not eating was such a foreign concept.But the drink is pretty tasty and I felt all of its cleansing effects.It's easy to tell that this book was written half a century ago, though the content is easy to digest and intriguing.The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that it tries to convince the reader to stay away from animal and animal-derived foods once the cleanse is done, as if that's the only way to diet for life.He threw in a bunch of recipies for the blandest-sounding food, so only two-thirds of the book was useful to me.The main part of it, The Lemonade Diet, is the heart of the book and it's worth a whole lot more than $6.50. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars At last!
    I got this book the instant it came out.This is the topic I have been looking for from Deepak. I've always felt that his background in medicine, spiritual experience and wisdom traditions puts him in an almost unique position to really dig into the subject of the afterlife. He really delivers. This is a facinating read for the intellectually and spiritually curious.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Pseudo Science
    Chopra attempts to use the language of science to disguise absolute rubbish and convoluted thinking. Don't waste your time with this pseudo science dribble.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Spirituality Examined
    Once again Chopra has explored the edges or our spirituality, of our minds. Many of us who like to consider ourselves spiritual but thinking human beings have grappled with the concept of eternal life and studied the various religions to find an answer.Most are far too rigid.Chopra wants us to explore for ourselves.BRAVO to a courageous man! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Most Important Book I've Ever Owned!
    This book should be required reading by everyone!I have given away copies of this book, and have one of my own.I have learned more about life from this book - how to deal with it, handle it, and survive it - then any other book I've ever read.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Spot-On
    I used one of the readings in this book and one of the readings in its sequel, "More Language of Letting Go," as the topics in a recent 12-step meeting I was called on to lead.I was a little bit fearful about using these books, as this was not a meeting of the 12-step program that might be most naturally associated with Ms. Beattie and her writings (although a close cousin).The second person to speak up after I opened the meeting for sharing confirmed my belief that these books were "spot-on," and so I have chosen that as the title of my review.(You know who you are, should you ever read these words, and I thank you once again.)
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great message for daily living
    I personally believe in the power of daily practice of meditation and focussing on the moment at hand.Being mindful of whats in front of us is the key to life.This book helps with the task of living one day at a time and growing each moment.Highly recommended.Also, would love if you checked out my book which is similar, "Your Daily Walk with the Great Minds of the Past and Present."Thanks and enjoy your daily journey. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars You've got to read this book!
    I received this book as a gift. There are quite a few books on this subject on the market and this one is the best. I too could not put it down and finished it in 3 days. It's a huge book, a great resource that is well researched and written.. I have a few friends who've purchased this book and really loved it too. I can highly recommend this book.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Same info as before
    There isn't anything new here unless you want to fall asleep reading about cheese and whisky.Dr. Weil gives examples of how some cheese's and whisky get better as they age as if this is supposed to correlate to people.I love Dr. Weil's other books and his website but I was disappointed by this book.If you want to read a good anti-aging book read Roy Walford's 120 year Diet.An excellent read.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Bother
    Don't EVEN bother buying this book.If you can avoid the snores with all the medical mumbo-jumbo, maybe this book is for you.Bottom line is: don't fret about aging because it's going to happen to you and eat right, exercise and take your vitamins.So what else is new?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get rid of back pain - FOREVER
    Hello All. I am 29 currently and I have had backpain on and off for over 9 years now. After a particularly nasty back spasm at the gym 2 years back ( where I could hardly walk), I was getting desparate. I looked at physiotherapy,and briefly at some other forms of exercise. I could not find lasting results anywhere and then I came across this book. It was god send. I read it in couple of hours flat. Re-read it next day. Thought a lot about what the author suggests are reasons behind the pain. It is generated from within and the cure also should come from within us. Anyone who thinks that cure CAN ONLY come fromoutside is going to be looking for a cure, the rest of their lives. I analyzed the book ( I am an engineer) and trusted the book.
    5-0 out of 5 stars 5 years with back pain, no back pain for 6 years.
    There I was, 18 years old, after exercising badly in the gym I developed back issues. An x-ray stated I had a back abnormality. For 5 years I had back pain, evey single day, mid to lower back pain. You know whats its like, the type thats always there.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!
    Dr. Sarno is a true pioneer in regards to diagnosing and treating back pain and has made a tremendous contribution with his discovery of the mind/body connection for this condition. I did, however, as a number of reviewers have pointed out, after reading Healing Back Pain felt the need for additional steps.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A stunning update of a classic
    When I went to update this with my handwritten notes made on the second edition I found that the material had already been added.Much improved over the older edition with more information on alternate species, constituents, pao zhi and modern uses.It still has the annoying multiple indexes but at least they are thumb indexed. Well worth the investment for owners of earlier editions who actively use herbal medicine.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Important, but flawed?
    My copy of this book is full of printing errors, including chapter summaries that are incomplete and index page numbers that are as many as two pages off.I expect much more from Eastland Press.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements
    I know there has been a lot of criticism to this book since many say that Lyle has ties to Usana. If Lyle wants to sell his book, why would he put in the book that he works with Usana, Douglas Laboratories, Life Extensions Foundations and Source Naturals, knowing that there are people who are going to think differently after reading the book. If Lyle was interested in the money of selling the book, he wouldn't have written that information in there. Plus, if Usana or Douglas Laboratories was paying Lyle money to put their products as top of the line, why would he say he works with them? Wouldn't that cause a problem with trusting the book in general?I think he wrote it down because he takes pride in the companies he works with. This is just my opinion.There is this document posted by Melaleuca called, "Getting to the bottom of the Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements."Melaleuca critiques the book on six pages.Anyone who has questions about the blending standards, or about the book in general should read it.

What if some experts choose vitamins and minerals in perfect combination, put them into one single package and give you and say all-you-need-is-this? Isn't that be great? What's good about this book is you can save your time and money to know which supplements are good for you.

    This book has great information about all types of minerals and vitamins.I had a hard time putting the book down.I learned so much more about the minerals and vitamins and what doses you should be using.Now I know how much my body needs of certain vitamins.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Careful - this book isn't as neutral as the author claims it to be
    If you read this book you will be given lots of evidence and independent studies on the various benefits of vitamins and minerals.But while this book claims to be neutral and balanced on the good and bad of each vitamin, the author does leave out a variety of studies that have cast doubt on the benefits of "mega-doses" of various vitamins and minerals.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Looking for a great book with gobs of information?
    Looking for a great book with gobs of information? Look no further! This book explains what each supplement is used for and the doses to take for specific diseases or just for optimal health. Perhaps the best thing about this book is that it lists information about adverse results if too much of a supplement is taken. I refer to this book time and time again. ... Read more

    Excellant Kidney Cleanse program if you get Kidney stones, this will put an end to them.
    5-0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life !!
    I was in the military and exposed to a lot of chemicals without proper protection (sanding and painting metals).Then i got two large dental fillings, and a year later i started having dicomfort around my middle (in retrospect, probably kidney irritation).Had to wear loose pants.A couple years later my whole life began to deteriate.I had chronic yeast infection, urinary infection, and watery bowel movements with stomache cramps.Military doctors treated with temporary infection treatments, but didnt offer any indepth search for the cause of this seemingly sudden onslaught of ill health.My sex life was seriously effected, and my marriage was strained.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful.
    I have a lot of books about body cleansing and alternative healing, but this one has information, which I never heard before like zapping or removing gold from the body for obese people. Also I think author is a little bit abscess about not using any metals even stainless steel, but she does recommend using plastic; and it is a little bit confusing about usage of filters. But I gave this book five stars anyway, because I think, that it has extremely valuable information and it is one of must have books. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Trigger point mania
    I love this book I have had a chance to use it a lot in my practice. It has tons of great information, be prepared a long read it is a medical manual so to speak and it can be a little on the long side, but if your up for it, It is a fantastic asset...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent text
    I found the information quite thorough.It is written in a user-friendly way, easy to understand.I bought this book because it was listed as a reference for the chiropractic practice part 2 exam.This book helped me with the locations of the trigger points.Sometimes the chiro boards like to ask questions on trigger points.However, Leonardi's book: National Board of Chiropractic Part II Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers and National Board of Chiropractic Part III Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers with Explanations are excellent for board exam preparation.These three books are needed for the part II and Part III of the boards.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The ultimate in drug-free pain relief!
    As a Clinical Massage Therapist at a hospital, I use these books almost daily.In fact, I just ordered my second set. . . The first is so threadbare it's barely usable.ANYTIME I have a patient with a pain that I can't immediately identify I grab my Travell's.This set is an absolute BIBLE for anyone in the health care industry.Travell and Simons have esentially written "The Instruction Manual" for elliminating myofascial pain by going to it's source!Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars A product of modern TCM
    This text is both well-written and comprehensive in its detail of modern TCM, and also sorely lacking in the nuance and subtlety that is the heart of Chinese medicine from which modern TCM is derived.It is a useful text with which to prepare for board exams, but of very limited benefit in its contribution to a sensitive exploration of the classical approaches to health and illness that Chinese medicine offers.If this book is optional for you, I would encourage you to go hear Mr. MacIocia speak in person, and then decide if he is the scholar whose text you want at this price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I Highly Recommed This Book
    I found this book to be very beneficial to me in my studies to become an acupuncturist and oriental medcine practioner. Giovanni MacIocias' book has long been considered THE standard text book for anyone involved in the modality of Oriental Theory and Medicine.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Clarity and insight that is all too rare inan unusual and challengingtopic.
    The sheer depth and breadth of the clarity and insight about Traditional Chinese Medicine that comes through this book with such ease for a reader is a wonder.Strong praise, yes; but all too often these subjects are obscure...and even good books usually only *start* to give people new to the subject insight as well as good, foundational knowledge.

    5-0 out of 5 stars First Lady of the Healing Arts
    Louise is the first lady of the healing arts and hers was one of the first book I ever saw on the subject. It totally changed the way I thought about healing and led to my writing my own book, some 12 years later.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read!
    This book was one of my first experiences with working with The Law of Attraction and the Power of Positivity.Though I first read it over ten years ago, I still use it and recommend it to clients regularly.I also recommend any of Louise's beautiful affirmation card decks... they are attractive reminders to keep thoughts high!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Just what I need...
    I have never been big on self-help books; many of them are too stuffy, or technical, or don't really relate to what I'm going through."You Can Heal Your Life" is different. It is easy to read, and well-written, and helps you see/realize/re-affirm that you are the master of your destiny, that only you can change your life, that you are loveable and perfect as you are - and best of all, the process is not "hard" - you just have to be willing to do the mental work.The book gives practical advise, it's non-judgemental, and it's real and true.

    Editorial Review

    Pete Egoscue learned a lot about pain when, as a Marine officer, he waswounded in Vietnam. He segued from patient to physical therapist, and now runs afamous clinic in San Diego, where he claims he's helped 95 percent of his patients curechronic pain--including Jack Nicklaus and Charles Barkley, whose athletic careers hehelped prolong. At the heart of his program are stretches and motion exercises to restoreproper function to muscles and joints. His methods are often surprising andcounterintuitive. For example, for foot pain, he suggests a series of hip exercises. In fact,this is one of the most startling books you'll read about the human organism. Egoscue hasstrong opinions about how modern life is changing the way our bodies function, reducingthe tasks we must perform and thus reducing the functional range of motion of ourmuscles and joints. Fortunately, he offers movement exercises to restore what naturemeant us to have. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Miracles do happen!
    I am an athlete who has had a chronic low back problem for twenty years. I exercised regularly utilizing exercises from the best physical therapists and chiropractors in the Los Angeles area. These exercises and stretch routines barley made a dent in the regular back pain I experienced. The day I received Pain Free I read the book cover to cover and did the chronic pain exercises. It was like a light switch was flipped in my back. I have been almost pain free for the last year since reading the book. The major test for me was whether I could return to running. Having been a marathoner before my back problem I had never been able to run regularly without severe repercussions. I now run three times a week with no repercussions and each week I am increasing my mileage. The maintenance exercises are great and they keep my back well.
    3-0 out of 5 stars After Long Term Use
    I have practiced the material in this book diligently for the past 8 months, and I think that sets me apart from the many who review this book after shorter use.The methods described in the book offer short-term relief positions for those in pain from musculosleletal problems.They are not unique, as yoga and physical therapy help in a similar fashion. They did not cure my back/disc related pain. Egoscue's claim that 95% of people doing these excercises will recover in a week is absurd, and his theories, though interesting, are unproven.Who is to say that his "successes" would not have recovered naturally in time?Having said that, I do think the book can give comfort to those in pain, but don't expect a cure.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Some simple exercises can really help
    I have just begun to get through this book.I quickly went to the section on back pain and tried the isometric exercises involving squeezing a pillow between your knees.Results were immediate and very beneficial.My back is feeling better than it has in years. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Agree, But Disagree
    I have purchased every edition of this book since it first came out as a much slimmer volume.The problem is, everyone thinks they should take all the vitamins, minerals and herbs explained in the book to get better.I suspect the title, "Prescription..." is the catch, as Americans especially believe in prescriptions for quick fixes.I agree with Byrnes' review up to a point.He suggests we should go to a therapist such as himself to REALLY learn what we should and shouldn't take.I know several dozen alternative "therapists" who believe they know the answers, most of them believe they were thoroughly educated in massage school or through reflexology certifications.No doubt they know more than the average layman, but most know just about nothing.I would recommend this book to anyone who feels a little better being educated about the many aspects of disease and cures that we hear about, and caution them to use it only as an educational tool and a basic resource. For optimal education, add this to your collection of Andrew Weil, Louise Hay, Rayna Gangi, and Deepak Chopra. Only then will you be able to discern and find the appropriate therapist.

    I received this book as a gift. There are quite a few books on this subject on the market and this one is the best. I too could not put it down and finished it in 3 days.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best radiology book on the market, great for nat'l boards
    I graduated chiropractic school this year.I used this book in school and found this it to be filled with lots of info on soft and hard tissue pathology.The radiographs are excellent in this book.Every condition from spinal bifida occulta to fibrous dysplasia is described with the utmost detail.Every chapter has a helpful summary that summarizes all the important points of each condition.I also used this book to help me study for Part II, III and IV of the National Boards.However, if you really want a great book to study for the national boards do what my study group and I did, get the following:4-0 out of 5 stars Yochum & Rowe Essentials
    An essential text for all chiropractic and medical students as well as practicing doctors.Useful write-ups on hundreds of conditions.Wonderful coverage of arthritides and tumors.Huge section on normals and a small section on positioning.The only place it's lacking is in chest and abdomen, and that's because it's a book on skeletal radiology.I couldn't do without it.

    I highly recommend these books to anyone that wants a firm foundation inradiology.The chapters follow a simple, logical progression that firsttime readers will enjoy.The pictures and diagrams that are included allowthe student to get a true feeling of the various radiological findingsassociated with disease processes.A must for any student's personellibrary! ...
