Subtitled "The 40-day health experience that will change your life forever," this is no ordinary diet plan. It's no ordinary diet book either. A New York Times bestseller, this book may be one of the few with the potential of living up to its promotion. Rubin is a doctor of naturopathic medicine and a certified nutrional consultant whose personal experience and winning style complements his formal studies, making this book a must-read for anyone interested in improving their health. Jordan begins with an engaging testimonial of his descent from athletic vigor to the ravages of Crohn's disease and his subsequent ascension to higher levels of health than before. His captivating experience runs the gamut of conventional and unconventional medicine, of fad diets and supplements promising everything while availing nothing. The cure for his incurable disease proved to be none other than getting back to the basics. Eat what the Maker of mankind created for human food consumption in the form most nearly like He created it.
