One of the Ten Best Health Books Ever Written

(NewsTarget) Once in a while, once in a great while, I read a book that makes such a profound impact on the discussion of health that I simply have to tell all my friends and colleagues to buy and read the book.

This has happened to me recently, and I decided, unprompted (and without the author's knowledge) to report on the book here on NaturalNews.com.

The book is: "How to have the BEST odds of Avoiding Degenerative Disease." By Don Bennett

Okay, titles like that should be outlawed, but in this extraordinarily rare case, this is exactly what this book provides and it is a precious packet of information in and of itself.

When Don began telling about all his years of research, I felt an attack coming on, feeling like I was going to hear about a list of credentials that would ultimately be used to compensate for real value in the book, but, imagine my surprise when I continued reading and began to see the most compelling, clear and free of nonsense discussion about eating raw food and living healthfully that I have ever read in one place.

Don begins by discussing the controversies in the health field and the corruptions in the whole medicine, diet and nutrition world. This was not my favorite part, because what I really want is the information that changes the soul. However, if you happen to be a little distressed by the lies being thrown at you in the health and also the medical fields, then you might be aided greatly by this discussion and seeing the holes in common theories and nonsense.

From there, Don launches into "health 101," which is a discussion about the attitude you must have about your health in order to even get started on the health path which will lead to real results.

The next section is "The Basics of Health." Here Don elaborates on the elements of health and the causes of disease. He expands way beyond eating and branches into a discussion of physical activity, water, sunshine, sleep, stress management and toxin avoidance.

He explores the factors in disease, which are misunderstandings in each of these areas.

Don's discussion on diet is clearly a raw food diet program, which all honest practitioners admit is the ideal, whether they understand how to properly do it or not. In Don's discussion, he explores the frugivorian nature of humans.

There have been other good raw food books, and yet this book designed to create health as well as prevent disease, is about as clear and straight as it is possible to write.

While Don's discussion of food is compelling and his perspectives immediately valuable, the most revolutionary contributions of the book have to do with exercise and sunlight.

Don shows how the traditional patterns of exercise are not only unnatural, they are harmful. When exercise is properly utilized and done at appropriate intervals and intensity, it can be revolutionary.

Exercise studies done on this style of exercising suggest that the human body is sent into a healing state when this style of exercise is used. Things that generally respond poorly to exercise, if at all, are dramatically improved in a few weeks. Decay stops and blood clears up, organs heal and the body reverts back to a healthier state.

I do not want to ruin the value of the book for you by exposing anything key before you get to it, for the context is, in this rare case, equally valuable for presenting and convincing and motivating to make good decisions as he reveals them.

When Don talked about sunlight, I got another education (and I have been at this for a while). I knew sunlight was healing, but I did not understand how much was really needed to supply our vitamin D or how to sunbathe for healing without creating interference for the very thing we are trying to accomplish. I also learned about the common error of wiping off the vitamin D before it has absorbed into the skin.

All told, Don addresses everything from supplementing and diet, to exercise, water, sunlight and ongoing education that helps keep you motivated and educated to be well perpetually.

Thank you, Don for your wonderful book.
