    Why bother?

    The author wrote this book as a result of her experiences after being diagnosed with HIV. She describes herself as "a Whole Foods Enthusiast!" She was already an advocate of natural remedies before she contracted HIV, and she credits this with her success in combating the disease. As the author states, "This is about so much more than HIV. It’s about treating yourself like you want to be alive before you get a 'diagnosis'." In other words, "Prevention vs. cure is an excellent battle plan if you’re serious about living healthy." She believes that "food is the best medicine" but openly admits that "I can’t give any 'expert medical advice' only anecdotal observations and stories about what has worked for me." Some of her recommended treatments include coconut oil, basil oil, Himalayan rock salt, probiotics, fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices, mushrooms, exercise, sweating. She also includes some (really) basic soup recipes. While the author's intentions are noble, this book is poorly written, rambling, and repetitive. It contains numerous editing errors and is in need of some structure. The author makes sweeping statements with no evidence to back them up, and she includes a list of healthy foods to eat but doesn't tell us why. What she does do is reference some helpful books to read. She states, "I could wait a few more years to write this book, a few more months and proofread it over and over again, add more detail... but the other books you need are already out there." So my question is: why bother reading this book at all? I received this book in return for an honest review.
