Reviews - What do customers think about Asthma Survival: The Holistic Medical Treatment Program for Asthma?
Generally good book May 27, 2008
This is a good book that looks at the links between food allergy, candida, fungus and asthma, and offers good advice on diet herbs, supplements and alternative therapies. One thing I didn't like as much is that 2 out of 7 chapters are devoted to healing your mind and spirit. Although I am a big believer in the mind body connection and wouldn't mind a few pages on affirmation and positive thinking, it went a little to much into concepts like play and passion, dealing with anger, work and play, optimism, forgiveness, altruism, and emotional causes of asthma. I thought that the emotional causes of asthma part was also too much of the outdated theory of let's blame the parents or the patient for the imbalance. I would rather forgo blame and work on where to go from here. This part of the book took it a little too far out of serious natropathic medicine and into self help book for me. Even so there is enough good information for the person looking for alternative treatments for asthma that it is worth the read. I did prefer "Reversing Asthma" although it is a few years older. But I would recommend this book.
A totally different way to look at asthma Mar 8, 2007
This book is a really different type of book, and lets you look into your whole health, both mental, and physical to see where problems may lie. I found it to be a big help for my son, and refreshingly different.
Great book. Mar 14, 2006
This is a great comprehensive book. I really like the author's approach. He gives both a short-term solution to some problems and some ideas on how to continually improve your health and vitality throughout your life.
