Editorial Reviews

UnBreak Your Health provides a terrific source for those interested in real health!C. Norman Shealy, M.D.Impressively organized and presented with an alphabetized roster of therapies for the body, mind, and spirit. UnBreak Your Health is thoroughly 'user friendly' and accessible...very highly recommended...Midwest Book Review...I enjoyed reading UnBreak Your Health and can now say I am enlightened and empowered and able to improve my health. This is a must have book for anyone wanting to improve their health and ways to go about it. I rate this book five stars.Booksville Literary ReviewsThe therapies researched and outlined in UnBreak Your Health are like holding the catalogue of all the good things in life ...Sue Vogan for Public Health AlertThis book provides a comprehensive path toward identifying the options available for health and wellness promotion, for mending broken perceptions and body parts, for uniting our spirit and energy with our minds and bodies. Alan provides a sensible approach to the personalized pathway to hope, healing, and wellness in non-technical language, empowering the reader of information and options about which he may not have been aware... (he) takes us on a personal expedition, providing a "map to better health" for which each of us may find an individualized path according to our specific inner GPS... Smith provides a roster of therapies and wide-ranging resource list from which we can begin our own course of healing and health betterment.Reviewed on About.com's PATIENT EMPOWERMENTThere have been a number of changes and updates in this second edition of UnBreak Your Health ... Another welcome change is more background information about the general philosophy of complementary and alternative therapies ... With the added commentary and analogies, this new edition will now be equally useful to those with little or no background in alternative therapies, those tentatively sticking a toe in the waters so to speak.Reviewed by Tami Brady for TCM Reviews Knowledge is power. And this book is a way to provide you with a one stop source for discovering complementary and alternative therapies.HealthStatus.com
