5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Book, 20 Jun 2014

I love everything about this book. It should be read by everyone interested in how the body works and why it gets sick, not just nutritional therapists like me, as it explains why so many people are suffering from chronic disease and how the medical profession views these diseases as separate entities rather than all stemming from a few imbalances in the body. Dr Bland is known as the 'father of functional medicine', the new way of doing medicine that focuses on personal prevention and treatment of chronic diseases by correcting the imbalances in one or more of the 7 core physiological processes in the body, namely assimilation and elimination, detoxification, defense, cellular communications, cellular transport, energy and structure. By modifying your environment, lifestyle, diet and genetic expression you can affect these processes. There are questionnaires about each process to help you identify any imbalances in your own body and It is written in an easy style that makes for compulsive reading and I am sure that nobody could fail to be enthralled at just how powerful our food is - the wrong food wreaking havoc and the right food optimising health - as well as the mismatch between our genes and our environment and lifestyle.

This review is from: The Disease Delusion: Conquering the Causes of Chronic Illness for a Healthier, Longer, and Happier Life (Kindle Edition)
Brilliant and very informative. Opens your eyes to the truth, and makes me question my doctor as he tries to pass on dangerous medication.

5.0 out of 5 stars East meets west and some hope for a healthful older age, 26 July 2014

This review is from: The Disease Delusion: Conquering the Causes of Chronic Illness for a Healthier, Longer, and Happier Life (Kindle Edition)
Fascinating and informative in equal measures. I find it a really effective way to learn about the body systems and how they can be compromised - especially useful for my Health Kinesiology training which takes a similar approach - treating the whole person and each symptom.Dr Bland refers to the influence of eastern medicine in his book and it is easy to see that the approach of balancing the whole body in the search for wellness is a big change from western medicine that prescribes symptom by symptom til we are all rattling like pill boxes in later life. Hopefully a way forward alongside complementary therapies, a better diet and some western interventions towards a healthier older age.

As always Jeff Bland writes a superb book in the disease delusion. Jeff is the king of functional medicine and a most wonderful speaker. His book demonstrates the paridigm shift in healthcare that has to occur if we are to remain less vertically challenged,
