    This is an outstanding rebuttal of Western medical practices. Among all reviewers, the book has been well received except for the ones within the medical establishment. For the latter, the book is uncomfortable as it amounts to a well researched attack on many common practices running from vaccines to bypass surgeries. Nothing works quite as well as promoted by the medical establishment. Also, everything is more dangerous in terms of side effect than your doctor suggests.The reviewers within the medical establishment state that this book is ill informed, that the author is nearly hysterical in her over the top uninformed judgment, and that she relies on dubious and lurid sources to support her arguments.Are any of these claims valid? No, they are not. Here is why. The author does not advance opinions without backing it with hard evidence such as randomized trials and other scientific studies. The reference section at the end of the book is amazingly long, including 1,800 references to professional medical journals. This reference section is dominated by top caliber journals such as: The Lancet, British Medical Journal, Journal of the American Medical Association, New England Journal of Medicine, and Journal of Nutritional Medicine.Additionally, fully accredited American doctors have reached the same conclusion as Lynne McTaggart. The most recent book by such a doctor/author is the excellent "The Last Well Person" by Nortin Hadler published in 2004. What's remarkable is that Lynne McTaggart's book was published in 1996 and is still current. "The Last Well Person" confirms that all her findings and statements ring as true today as they did when she wrote this book.Taggart's last chapter amounting to her own recommendation to maintain your health make good common sense. She recommends maintaining your health through good nutrition (large dose of fruits and vegetables) lots of exercise. She recommends taking antioxidant supplements (Vit. A, Vit. C, Vit. E). She also recommends treating your doctor like you would any contractor by questioning the hows and whys of any treatments he suggests. And, double checking the performance of such proposed treatments through second and third opinions and searches on Medline. I don't think there is any open minded doctor that would disagree with this advice. And, I can tell you firsthand that this simple approach works. That's pretty much what I have done personally for the past few decades to maintain a very good health.In addition to "The Last Well Person" I recommend another related book by a doctor/author: "Should I be Tested for Cancer?" by H. Gilbert Welch. It's an excellent book that further supports Lynne McTaggart's well founded skepticism of Western medical practice. There are many more such books written by doctors. In other words, Lynne McTaggart is far from alone. And, her opinion is hopefully much closer to the mainstream than it was when she wrote this book.

    From my own reading elsewhere plus less than positive experiences with modern medicine, this book rings true to me. It's very well documented with medical journal articles. Perhaps the most startling fact is that doctors discuss among themselves the dangers and ineffectiveness of much of modern medicine without changing their practices or informing the public -- maddening! I know from my own experience of the dangers of the overuse of antibiotics, just one of the areas McTaggart addresses. I'm suffering (now in my forties) for my family doctor's decision to put me on tetracycline for acne when I was a teenager. I think I was on it for a couple of years before getting my first vaginal yeast infection. Now I have chronic systemic candida (yeast) overgrowth and believe me it is tough to shake this. Who knows what other havoc is being wreaked by so-called wonder drugs? McTaggart tells you. Please read this and pass the word. Don't even consider surgery or a drug regimen without reading this book!

    This book is rather dated in the sense that most of what is offered here has already entered into mainstream thought, or at least the thoughts of informed people. And maybe that's a good thing. If you're an individual who blindly trusts his/her doctors you owe it to yourself to read this book before engaging in any major therapy program. If you enjoy having your head firmly buried in the sand then this isn't for you.Btw, the author of this book has moved far ahead since writing it and is now reporting on the cutting edge of quantum theory and other advanced mathematics. Those books are very interesting.

    As director of an organization concerned with medical error, I'm acutely aware of the hazards. There is some useful information in this book, but too much of the time it is over-the-top. The author latches onto dubious and lurid sources; anything that will bolster her thesis, no matter how questionable. It is impossible for the typical reader to sort out the credible information from the nonsense. The book is so extreme that it tends to discredit the effort to inform consumers about medical risks.

    I been learning about the dangers of modern medicine since 1970s & this book is way deeper expose of Confessions of a Medical Heretic" by DR. Mendelson. I got it to learn about how unnaturally dangerous normal medical OB birthing work hurting mothers & babies. It focuses more on details & risks of PreNatal exams than actual medical caused birth trauma in hospital deliveries. But its rather scary if true what doctors do to millions of US trusting our bodies & lives to SOP = 'Standard Operating Procedures' with hi tech science, replacing our natural healthy self help care at home with primal instincts for choosing organic sources for lifelong healthy learning & vitality, immunity & longevity. Spontaneous Healing : How to Discover and Embrace Your Body's Natural Ability to Maintain and Heal Itself &Death by Medicine

    I Really am enjoying reading this expose of doctors and their methods!! The only thing I'd change is the size of the print. Even with reading glasses the print is hard to read.

    YEP. It's all hush-hush.
