I wish I didn't need to be interested in this book Peter's written, and, frankly, my case is extraordinarily mild...But I just picked it up and am, as usual, wow'ed.
I just blogged on it (Santé_j), i.e., wrote a book review. Check it out!

Very good review of the Arthritis Book...  

I got the Fatigue book and am just as impressed by it.  It makes sense when you read it, then it makes you feel so good when you eat correctly and feel better for it.  What a reward...

And I just edited it: It's even better.  I've read a number of Peter's books on the specific conditions, and they're all SUPERIOR products, FOR SURE.  But there's so much...vague/general fluff out there re: Arthritis, since no one seems to be curing/treating it well.  Peter's book is, simply, great, and I made sure that, in the editing, I made that very, very clear in my review.  Let me know what you think.  I want that book to be read by millions.

When you say, "here" you mean in this thread.....?
Well, as usual your blog is intelligent and well written....I already had the book and really like it a lot....your review leaves me with the impression (maybe previously overlooked) that going grainfree for this O might be a positive move....OMG! I really need to get inflammation under control. The OMG is for grain free. Scary. But thanks. jayney

Janey-O,

Become a grain-free girl! It's easy and very good for us.  

It frees you up from having to manage grain input.

Easy means, don't have to buy it, don't have it hanging around in cupboards, don't have to measure out a rice portion, you don't have to think about grains.  Means you eat more bennie vegetables, which is better for you in the long run.

I'm about 99% grain free.  I don't even let Mr. KK keep his Ezekiel bread in the fridge's freezer.  I make him keep it in the garage freezer.  Out of sight, out of mind.  The 1% I do eat is Kamut flour dusted on fish, beef, shrimp before we fry.

Quoted from lola
"...almost all back pain are caused by a part of the brain that creates the physical condition as a diversion for emotional pain that lies in the brain...Sarno's latest book, The Divide

And once again he (Sarno) is offensive.  How can he say "almost all back pain" is caused by psychic pain?  Tell that to someone who was in a car accident, I'm sure s/he would find that very helpful (not).  I don't think Sarno and most of those who think he is fab realize how offensive his sweeping generalizations are.  If he were at all careful to preface his theories with "some back pain..." is caused by this or even "many cases of back pain...", but no, there he goes again with the "almost all"...at least there is an "almost" in there this time.  That's progress at least.  I personally find the man infuriating.  Just my opinion.  He might have a lot of great things to say but the fact that he is so definite and sweeping in his view that all back pain is caused by psychological pain is just as offensive as if he said all back pain is caused by something physical.  Each case is individual.  If he would acknowledge that at all, maybe then I could be open to hearing what he has to say, which is actually interesting stuff for those cases that are psychological in origin.  But since he turns me right off and irks me at the outset, I'm not open to hearing what he has to say.

Peppy, the way I look at it is this: everyone has an opinion but that doesn't mean their opinion is right (for me).


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

PT: I am SO there with you.  I've come across far too much such mumbo-jumbo.  Including that with respect to cancer, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, allergies... there's just no limit. Truly ill people are being bashed over the head with these guilt trips.

I do believe that we can be severely run down by stresses and the way we handle them.  Our immunity can be badly affected by psychological stress.  But tell someone with obvious pathological clinical signs that it's all in his head, and I close the book...

Three cheers for Individuality!

Unfortunately, yes, m'dear, I do mean you'll have to comment on the Blog H-E-R-E.
So says the feedback offline...

But, yes, the book was so inspiring.  As for the wheat, I'm still eating it, in a "If I Have To" sort of way, i.e., using up products in my pantry, least of several evils when restaurant-ordering...the point is: I'm conscious of it...And I need to be, anyway, being overweight.

Yes, I saw the teeth in the blog...  Good information!  I live in Orange County, CA, but don't frequent the ocean.  I like it for the cool breezes that come off the water, however.

Thanks for the great review and the N. Cali warning. Sheesh! (I just realized my signature may come in part to being married to a B ).


It is so pleasant to explore nature & oneself at the same time, doing violence neither to her nor to one's own spirit, but bringing both into balance in gentle, mutual interaction.

I confess to somewhat of a fascination with the GWShark ever since I learned of it in a movie theatre in 1971 via the documentary, "Blue Water White Death".  The hands-down-most-spectacular book about this species and its interaction with us humans is, imo, Russell Drumm's In The Slick Of The Cricket; it's definitely in my Top 100 or 200 books?

If you remember the movie "Jaws", or the novel by Peter Benchley, you know "Quint", the sharkhunter, who was actually based upon a real man, Frank Mundus, of Montauk, Long Island.  The above-recommended book is a writer's coverage of Frank's last GW charter off of Long Island.  It's really a must-read, even for its poetry and eco-focus... Thumbs Up and the rest...

I purchased a few of Mr. D's books because I was suffering from Fatigue, Allergies, mild case of Arthritis, etc. The problem is I do not know which guidelines to follow first. Some guidelines are the same for all the books of this health series and some are specific. So for now, I try to follow them all.  

Checked out the review....good one.
I happen to love rice, do I have to give up the brown rice, too?
