This was just one of those books that I couldn't put down. The author writes about real-life case studies of people who have experienced spontaneous remission from terminal illness through their own resilience and meaningful lifestyle adjustments.
The author, coming from a medical background, clearly understands the impact of disease on the human body, but he also is very clear on the influence we have on our own health and with the right mindset how we can reverse the damage.
"Medicine today is like a long line of ambulances parked at the bottom of a tall cliff. High above, people walk off the cliff and fall, plummeting to the bottom. The ambulances pick up the broken bodies and whisk them off to hospital, where the latest technology and medications will fix them up as best they can. And they do a pretty good job! But the only real way to help people is to have guardrails at the top - methods to support people in developing vital, healthy lives, with the immune system up, so they don't go over the cliff to begin with!" (pg 40)
"The body - if you can get out of it's way - is a brilliant self-correcting organism that wants to get better." (pg 65)
Everyone should read this book! ❤❤
