“This is where the future of medicine should be heading.” ―Ronald Cridland, M.D.
“This is neither alternative medicine nor conservative medicine, but rather progressive medicine. Dr. Fuhrman’s approach offers individuals suffering from [chronic] diseases the only real chance for a meaningful cure. I have been fortunate to observe many of these outcomes firsthand and can testify to the power of this approach for certain diseases.” ―James Craner, M.D., M.P.H.
“Dr. Fuhrman’s book is revolutionary. It shows clearly and unmistakably the way to recover health, and could change the prevailing way of treating disease.” ―Theodore Coumentakis, M.D.

This book is for those who want to take charge over their health and well-being, and for those who want to embark on a journey toward a more satisfying life.” ―Don Jeret, M.D.
“I know that every health seeker in America will want to read this book. It provides a working knowledge of vital information that is currently known to relatively few people. Share it with those you love.” ―John Pilla, M.D.
