Product Review - Off Balance: The American Way of Health


There!  I'm completely done with my review of the book!

Then again... I know that I have to give you more.

Let's just start with a little background about me.  I don't like to take drugs.  Not the legal or illegal kind.  Cramps, headache, backache, whatever - I deal with the pain.  Why?  Because I know that what they prescribe isn't good for us!  As for foods, there's a lot that I make it my business to avoid and I am also working on getting rid of other things in my diet (16 days without chicken or turkey, over a decade without pork and beef).  So believe me when I say that I wholeheartedly agreed with the perspective of Leyla Ali, PharmD, as I read Off Balance - The American Way of Health.

The book is written by a former pharmacist and has A LOT of information that you already may have considered or know.  It has in-depth interviews with survivors of dis-ease, as well as those that used to me in the Western Medicine field, and are now practicing more "alternative" methods of healing, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy, and Ayurveda, to name a few.

My book already has worn pages... that proves it's repeated use!

One of my favorite chapters is the "Emotions" chapter.  I have highlighted and taken notes all through the book; however, I paid special attention to this chapter as I feel as though it is more beneficial to me.  There is a chart that tells you how acidic or alkaline foods are, very helpful, and there are breakdowns of different types of medicines and therapies.

Overall, this book is amazing and I am thankful to have a hard copy.  If you see it, BUY IT!!  I actually told my 10-year-old that she needs to read it, given her interest in becoming a physician, curing Leukemia, and because there is a lot of information contained within the pages that I have already shared with her PRIOR to reading the book.  This is officially a holy grail for me and I definitely plan to read it through AGAIN!  If you are looking to increase your overall health, as well as to gain insight about the medical industry, I strongly suggest this book!  You can buy it by clicking here.
