1.0 out of 5 stars Inaccurate tool, 30 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Inaccurate readings were displayed to me on the second day of use, as I took a reading a got a surprising result, so retested and kept getting different scores. Now I'm not sure if yesterday's results are valid. I measured five times upon waking and got the following readings 6.6, 4.6, 5.7, 5.0, 4.8.

As you can see there is a lot variation, between 6.6 - 4.6. I don't often write reviews, but I think this is such an important tool, that people should know some units are not fit for purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading, 2 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Magnesium Miracle (Paperback)
This book has certainly opened my eyes to the importance of Magnesium in the body, how interacts with calcium and is involved in over 325 processes in the human body. What is also incredible is the amount of people that are deficient in this crucial mineral and the poor knowledge on Magnesium that exists in the public domain as well as, and crucially, in the medical community!

5.0 out of 5 stars New lease of life, 13 Sep 2012
These drops have given me so much more energy and focus!I I never realised what I was missing, with an under-active thyroid. Constantly tired and apathetic, with cold extremities in the winter too and very dry and pale skin and hair. Since taking these drops I have noticed I get an extra boost of energy and focus, although nothing like a caffeine hit because its not a nervous energy. I have begun supplementing these drops with other herbs and supplements that aid thyroid function, a very common ailment I have since discovered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic, 31 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a beautiful and exciting story that captures the imagination.. loved it! It is romantic in its feel and is told in a concise manner, without over doing what is already a story of bristling with detail and no small level of danger and intrigue. Well worth a read and offers a snapshot of the sort of bravery and ingenuity that won us the war against an often superior foe.

This review is from: Healing Night (Kindle Edition)
A Beautiful Book, well written!

It has provided me with a new found respect for the night, where I can allow myself to rest and enjoy this time, giving me a previously untapped pleasure whilst asleep in the form of more lucid and enjoyable dreams as well as an improved sense of well-being throughout the day. I like this book so much I feel like buying it for my friends and family!


Why We Get Fat: And What to Do about It

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!!!, 21 Jun 2012
This book has really opened my eyes, revealing how our hormones affect our weight and health. I didn't really need to shed any pounds, but wanted to find out about the current shift in thinking that is taking place in modern nutrition, that ditches the calorie counting (or even glycemic index) paradigm. Then by following some of the conclusions the author has highlighted in his research I have improved my sleep, my mood and lost a stone since starting 8 weeks ago, I am now lean and feel I have reached my ideal weight. My father and sister have also lost weight by following the simple concepts of eating what our ancestors have been nourishing themselves on for 2.5 million years. In some circles its known as the "Paleo diet".

The conclusions the author makes are logical and seem very well backed up. I would recommend this book to anybody wanting to understand how/why the human body stores fat (and develops associated illnesses) and how to avoid that process.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most important books I've read!, 12 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read this book off the back of "Why We Get Fat" by Gary Taubes, and I must say that I thought that book was massively eye-opening in its contents, but this one is just as important and crucial to anybody wishing to improve their LIFE EXPECTANCY and general well-being, not just lose some weight (which you will achieve too!). A bold claim I know, but one that I think this book stands up to, as throughout NEW paradigm shifting concepts are explained well, frequently backed up by scientific studies and above all easy to follow logic. When I take this book in context of the previously mentioned "Why We Get Fat", then it all makes even more sense and I can see that society is in real trouble unless knowledge, like the sort in these pages, makes it into the public consciousness.

We all make healthy decisions all the time, for example choosing a low fat yogurt or taking extra iron, but unfortunately we may be doing more harm to ourselves and I feel that the information within these pages as well as the aforementioned book, will positively change my life and that of my family for good, I hope it can do the same for you and society as a whole. I don't normally bother writing reviews for anything (I know I'm a lazy bugger!) but I just had to express how important it is that we start doing what is REALLY healthy for us as a society, many people will lead happier lives, longer lives and families will have their health, something often taken for granted till its too late.

If you're in doubt whether or not to press that "add to basket" button (like I did a couple of months ago) take the plunge my friend, take the blue pill and sort out your health, but pass it on too. :)
