1.0 out of 5 stars Eating less is impossible unless I cut out the crap, book did not help., 11 May 2008
If your an over eater, or addicted to food, I reccomend looking into magnesium deficiency and eating healthily, i.e. fish, vegetables, olive oil, beans, lentils and decreasing meat, dairy and alcohol. Gillian reckons you can eat anything but just do it in moderation./ Well, if I could do this I we would not need the book. I felt the book has some good ideas but the book was not helpful because it just did not change me. For me it was like saying to an alcoholic, drinking less: Say goodbye to alcoholism. When I eat the addictive foods, sugar, wheat, milk, something happens!!!! Its a bit like mask... I go straaanggge! I want more and more and it doesn't matter what I read, I know there is something wrong. I do get relief cutting down to a minimum meat, sugar, wheat, and dairy, and increasing vegetables, fish, beans, pears.

This review is from: Jason Vale 7Ibs in 7 Days (DVD)
I ahve read loads of health books and non of them have any bad langauge in. This book has plenty and it is not needed. If one is healthy I should think they would not want to sware. The book insists that you read through it all, but it does not tell you anything we do not know already. E.g. doctors treat symptoms but not the cause. I suggest you go out and buy the juice machine and simply get juicing. Buy juice recipes and get on with it. You may find you hate the juice! Experiment and take a bit of exercise. I do not like juice on its own and others do. I reccomend finding out the person you are. Are you a 7 day juice person? I am not. Juices are raw and good for you, BUT there is so much waste, it would be nice to have acompost heap at least. But the fibre lost in juicing has vital health benefits, so I think juice and no veg/friut solids is a no, no in the long term but better than nothing.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK NORMALISES BLOOD SUGAR, 9 Nov. 2007
I just wanted to say that I agree with the other reviewers for this book. This book is the only one that did it for me. It kept my blood sugars normal. Fruit was messing me up and the Richard K. Bernstein reccomendeds the only friut we can eat is avarcado. The diet is strict but least I am empowered and in control over my life. I do not need to worry what bad things are going to happen to me if I keep on having high blood glucose levels. I am can keep my eyes and legs after all on this type of diet and therer is much hope for me and over time the habit changes to a healthier one, as I simply forget about junk and poisonous foods. Just think... if this diet/book is going to make you healthy, thin and beautiful well this is the book for you. If your in dought, try the diet out and see for yourself. Life should be a joy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT HELP FOR A VIOLIN BEGINNER!, 10 July 2007
I found this DVD to be a great help. He shows how to do vibrato,scales and how to play. He does not teach you how to read music, so it would be helpful to have a look on the internet or buy a basic AB theory book.
The man on the DVD has a great sense of humour, I think he is pretty smart. Buy this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars READ THIS BOOK & NO MORE WORRY 4 MAGNESIUM IS HERE!, 10 Feb. 2007
This review is from: The Magnesium Miracle (Paperback)
Magnesium, is an essential nutrient, which is fully covered in book with references, and is easy to understand and well written. Every aspect of how magnesium can treat/prevent ill-health and most western disease is covered. e.g. Depression, anxiety,heart disease, spasms, hypertension and hypoglycemia, food cravings, e.g. uncontrollable urges for sugar, are claimmed to be prevented with magnesium foods/supplements. Although Dr. Carolyn Dean reccomends magnesium supplements, she always mentions them along side whole foods that contain magnesium so you will not turn into the ultimate pill popper(e.g. can not beat real food, especially organic food which is a bit better!). Our cells cannot function without magnesium and mentions depressives are not prozac deficient but magnesium deficient, hyperactive children are not retalin deficient but magnesium deficient. We as a society including doctors should take diet seriously, the problem reallt starts by the fact that we eat so much refined foods and sugar, and so many of our foods have had magnesium striped from them, as part of their refining/processing, freezing or tinning/ packaging processes, e.g. refining wheat and sugar. Foods such as refined sugar, white flour, alcohol, coffee use, take our bodies magnesium and leach it out big time, never mind provide it!!! So it is not just a matter of putting magnesium in but preventing it from being poured out by coffee and alcohol and junk foods. Dr. Carolyn Dean is a medical doctor, homeopath, herbalist, and nutritionalist, and has researched as much as possible about magnesium to give us the facts/references to back up what she claim. Her book has the potential to save many lifes and encourage people to lead healthier lifes which they can enjoy. I am sure this is why this book has been writen for us, I highly reccomend you read it and become healthier. Another example, she states the brain and heart contain the most magnesium if we become deficient in it these become severely effected. Most spasms, palpitations are caused also by magnesium deficiency, and explaines why and how etc. The book tells you which foods contain magnesium, and so so much more. A great, uplifting book to read that brings a promise of better health to those who follow out the Dr's/ and naruropathic profesional advice. Dr.Carolyn Dean is like a 4 in 1 professional, she knows her stuff!!!

The Cure for All Advanced Cancers

After trying alsorts to try and get rid of my chest infection I started using the electronic device I brought already made, and within 48 hours I was tons better. I reccomend her methods and would give her a pat on the back for not been afraid to try new methods. Drugs can be very toxic, and some people are very sensitive to most medicines, even herbs.

We need people like Hulda to open the doors to new ideas. Her books are wonderful, but I would advise people to try her device BEFORE they comment. Alot of genius people are not believed at first, because are simply not at their level. It is not qualifications that make us genius either... Hulda Clark is a keen scientist who seeks to find new ways.... it is upto us to work on them and perhaps even make grander techniques.

Let Hulda awaken and teach us all. If you want to use it to destroy fungus, virus's and bacteria, parasites, give it ago, along with herbs and a good diet. Black walnut, wormwood, cloves. low starchy vegetables like brocolli etc.

Winning the War Against Asthma and Allergies: A Drug Free Cure
by Ellen W. Cutler
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars OPEN YOUR MIND TO A NEW LIFE!, 6 Sept. 2006
Muscle testing has worked for me. Allergies can truely be detected by kinesiology. We need a new approach for people that can not even take a vitamin, mineral, herb, or orthodox medicine because allergies have gone to far.

The technique is hard to comprehend unless you have proper professional trainning.... there is a real technique to it...working via unblocking meridians, and kinesiology tests. For further info look at applied kinesiology books. It is an amazing science for all people with open minds, with an up to date 21st century mind that is open to miracles offered by NAET.

5.0 out of 5 stars TAKE THIS BOOK SERIOUSLY!, 19 Aug. 2006
I know via various studies that insulin stimulates androgen synthesis in ovaries via the cognale receptor and inositolglycan pathways(Nestlaer et al. 1998). It is strongly linked to Poly Ovarian Syndrome without a dought, as specialists in this field are well aware off. Since the ovaries remain sensitive to insulin when the other tissues such as fat and muscle are resistant, it stimulates excess androgens which further encourage insulkin resitance. Polycystic Ovarian syndrome is caused by insulin resistance via todays high sugar/carb diets. Reverting to the stone age diets, with low starchy vegetables and higher protien but moderate fats, no dairy/no grain, low carbohydrates is the way. This book should be taken seriously. High insulin effects the ovaries and leads to hyperandrogenism in polycystic ovarian syndrome, and blocking these andgrogens or lowing them by diet helps to control insulin resistance which is very common in today's 21st century, and help you not only lose weight, but prevent disease. So many woman are locked in the world of "I can not control my eating", "I am getting fatter" or have been diagnosed with binge eating/bulemia. Life will not get easier, and one will continue searching forever until you go back to nature. Problems like eating disorders are strongly linked to hypoglycemia/excess androgens/high insulin,via our crazy diets. BUT NOT ALL there will be the minority with other causes. High insulin leads to type 2 diabetes. Act now and change your life, dump the sugar and junk in your life and empower your life and make your dreams come true :-) GOOD LUCK!
