Book Review: The End of Illness.

The author, of this brilliantly conceived and written book ably summarisers the most significant clinical findings in recent years pertaining to aging and disease.

His opinions are solid and backed by science.

The good doctor (an oncologist) states that the human body represents a delicate balance of homeostatic conditions and that illness is part of a living being. His claim that the body can repair many of the minor diseases that befalls it if normal corrective action is taken without the use of medication. This can be done changing the diet, losing weight and leading a regular and regulated life.

It provides valuable information about food and how it benefits the body, but also states that the wrong selection of food can harm us in short or long term, as we can readily observe by looking at a crowd in North America.

This indispensable book is not only a manifesto about our society’s way of thinking, it is also filled with practical sugegstio9ns regarding over-the-counter, and prescription drugs.

His claim that all medication has some side effects, and must be evaluated accordingly before use.

The good doctor claims that the circadian rhythm must be followed to prevent diseases and that breaking this natural process creates havoc with the functions of the body. His advice to go to bed and rise at the same time every day is proven to be true, and should be followed by everyone trying to lead a healthy life.

He also, correctly advises that before visiting your doctor, you should list all your questions, your observations about your body, and discuss them before your doctor writes a prescription.

Today, most doctors spend, at least in Ontario, very little time with patients and are quick to prescribe medication, when in fact; a small change in diet or daily activities could cure the illness.

This is a book for all to read, think about its content, change whatever can be easily changed and should be used as reference.

Very valuable, and worth keeping in your library.
