What Really Makes You Ill?: Why Everything You Thought You Knew About Disease Is Wrong

Availability: Ready to download

This book will explain what really makes you ill and why everything you thought you knew about disease is wrong. "Doctors are men who prescribe medicines of which they know little, to cure diseases of which they know less, in human beings of whom they know nothing." Voltaire. The conventional approach adopted by most healthcare systems entails the use of ‘medicine’ to trea This book will explain what really makes you ill and why everything you thought you knew about disease is wrong. "Doctors are men who prescribe medicines of which they know little, to cure diseases of which they know less, in human beings of whom they know nothing." Voltaire. The conventional approach adopted by most healthcare systems entails the use of ‘medicine’ to treat human disease. The idea encapsulated by the above quote attributed to Voltaire, the nom de plume of François-Marie Arouet (1694-1778), will no doubt be regarded by most people as inapplicable to 21st century healthcare, especially the system known as modern medicine. The reason that people would consider this idea to no longer be relevant is likely to be based on the assumption that ‘medical science’ has made significant advances since the 18th century and that 21st century doctors therefore possess a thorough, if not quite complete, knowledge of medicines, diseases and the human body. Unfortunately, however, this would be a mistaken assumption; as this book will demonstrate.

    Great example of citizen journalism. Thoroughly researched by independent authors about one of the most important subjects that affects us all: health. This book explains why and how most of the therapies of 'modern medicine' - and the theories they are based upon - are very problematic, at best. Also, the political mechanisms are exposed that are necessary to keep most of the world's population unaware of this crucial information.

    An electrical engineer and an accountant have decided they know more about medicine than doctors, biochemists, microbiologists. What could possibly go wrong?! This book deserves minus 1 star but the software won't let me.

    A critical review of modern medicine This book takes an uncompromising look at modern medicine. I found it informative and thought provoking. The authors' logical and analytical methods were useful in explaining the flaws in modern medicine to me, though I did occasionally feel more evidence would have been useful.

    Disappointing Onesided view by non-trained authors, only critisizing the medical fraternity without considering scientific evidence as logic. An integrated or holostic approach would have been valuable.

    Roughly 50 pages of cited sources. Other reviewers who likely haven't read the book state there aren't sources which is completely untrue. The information is clear, concise and empowering. Over 10 years of research and study went into this book. Not just a good read, but a great read!

    Any book that quotes and draws upon references from another source without a footnote or endnote of that source cannot get more than three stars, no matter how excellent the content is. This book has a lot of fascinating content, but it’s not well structured.
