"5 out of 5 stars. If I could only have one book on the subject, this is it! In March I discovered I had to go gluten and dairy free. It is now September and I am a lot better but not near 100%, I have eliminated most anything else that could be the cause, except my 7 giant fillings. Then I found this book. I have spent $400 on books since I was diagnosed, a lot of cookbooks to be sure, but this is the best one that is not a cookbook. The information packed into this one is so complete and detailed. Steps to take are shown, with time frames to complete them. Recommended supplements are shown. It is the first book I have picked up that would enable me to mostly go it alone since I don't have a great doctor close enough. I bought a Kindle edition, and then I bought a paper edition, because it was so full of charts I wanted to see better, and I knew I would use it a lot. The author was a dentist for 20 years and then became a naturopath and healed herself. There is no one better to guide you than someone who has been through it!"

Brain Repair

Russell Blaylock

This series of four short videos from the author and retired neurosurgeon Dr Russell Blaylock bring the encouraging news that the brain is more plastic than was previously thought. He says that provided the brain is given the proper nutrition and rest and neurotoxins are avoided where possible, that the brain can become increasingly complex throughout life and capable of greater function and wisdom.

This is in sharp contrast to the previous notion that we were all on a slippery slope from the cradle to the grave as neurons died in their millions on a daily basis throughout life.

In these videos, Dr Blaylock discusses such issues as:

  • The importance of maintaining steady blood glucose levels in order to minimise free radical damage to the brain
  • The cumulative effect of toxin exposure(s) on the brain
  • The long-term effects of excitotoxins such as MSG and aspartame on the brain - even after short-term exposure
  • The nutrients required for optimal brain health and to prevent the degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease
  • The damaging effect of so-called 'healthy' omega 6 oils
  • The relationship between excess abdominal fat and neurological disease.
