Title: Fire Your Doctor!
Author: Andrew Saul, Ph.D.
Publisher: Basic Health Publications, December 2005
Summary: I first learned about Andrew Saul when I watched the movie Food Matters. He is somewhat of an authority on orthomolecular medicine (nutrition therapy). He brings 30 years of experience researching non-medicinal options to many common ailments into all of his books. He is a bit snarky with a wry sense of humor which makes reading about health, nutrition and mega-doses of vitamins something you won’t just put back on the shelf and forget about. After finishing Fire Your Doctor! I moved on to an earlier book of his with similar information; Doctor Yourself. One of the things I like about his writing style and the style of the movie Food Matters is they don’t try to scare you into eating healthily. They present solid facts about what you SHOULD be eating and why and leave the rest up to you. He is very proud of the fact that he raised two children from birth through college age without even one dose of antibiotics! Want to know how they did that or more about him or his books? Visit his website: www.doctoryourself.com and look up an ailment of your own, a friend or family member.
