“If you have an eye condition, ask your ophthalmologist how he will treat you. Then pick up Dr. Abel’s book and note how many more answers he gives. I can vouch for the fact that the options he offers, being natural and nutritional, are far better.” –Robert C. Atkins, M.D.
This is a great book for anyone who is concerned about maintaining good quality eyesight. The author describes the anatomy and physiology of the eye and discusses in depth the various common eye diseases. He gives both the conventional treatments and the natural medicine treatments. He also discusses ways these various diseases can be prevented. The book is written from a nutritional standpoint as the author is into both eye care and nutrition. This is a interesting and informative book. He is quite comprehensive and covers the subject well. I recommended it for anyone who is interested in nutritional approaches for healing and preserving their eyesight. — Valerie Lull, Author, Ten Healthy Teas
I’ve used the first edition for years and am excited to receive this 3rd edition. Robert Abel MD is an excellent teacher and his holistic approach to eye health is a breath of fresh air in the realm of allopathic medicine. I cannot recommend this book more highly for anyone seeking to improve their vision and eye health in a meaningful, whole-body, whole-being way.
this is inspried. he is an evolved man and an avant garde ophthalmologist. we need more like him, a patient orientated doctor not just focused on pill pushing for symptoms and focusing on just his few square inches of the body. whole body, whole person, whole patient. GREAT. my new hero
I learned that I had elevated eye pressure as well as ocular nerve damage at the end of 2015. I wanted to know more about what I could do to care for my eyes as the ophthalmologist prescribed drops but didn’t really communicate with me much beyond that. This book has been an excellent resource concerning eye care in general and the different types of disorders and options for care and treatment. I’d highly recommend to everyone. You only have 2 eyes a lifetime.
Very good informative book. The author goes into much about nutrition and lifestyle and everything in between. Much food for thought and I did learn allot about vision, preventative care and otherwise.
Dr. Abel’s approach to eye health is refreshing, especially when you’re outside of the US and can’t always expect the highest quality of care abroad. His perspective on alternative therapies is most welcome, I wish more doctors would consider and advise their patients of effective therapies that fall outside of the realm of billable medical science.
My mom shelled out supplements every meal but never included this kind of information. My husbands mother didn’t. I read this to hubby and he is ready to go forth and reclaim his eyesight. The supplement list is quite inclusive and the diabetes chapter is an excellent one.
Amazon recommended this book to me. I saw the preview and bought it. This is a wonderful book. I congratulate the author for writing this book. I read many Heath books. But still many new things I found. Every person who aspires for good health should have this book.
The most comprehensive beautiful book on succulents you will ever find. BOught an extra for my daughter. if you want to know about the use, the care, the different types this is your book. the pictures of containers and outdoor use are top quality and very inspiring..
- This is an awesome book on container gardening. Ms. Baldwin accepted the challenge of demystifying succulents and how to grow them. And she did a wonderful job!
She starts off by pairing plants with various pot types and styles. From there she talks about the many types of succulents along with some companion plants to consider. At the same time, you can see colorful photos with crisp detail. If you are a visual person like me, I can’t say enough good things about the importance of well-developed pictures.
She talks about displaying your plants, the proper care and, lastly, she gives you some wonderful plant lists. If you are ever considering growing this family of plants, I would tell you to consider investing in the hard copy. It is money well-spent; you will get much use from this book.
This book is beautiful to look at. Its primary purpose is to show you how to arrange succulents in containers. There is one chapter that deals with the planting and care of succulents, which is more what I was looking for. I will probably sell it back.
