Good Health in the 21st Century: A Family Doctor's Unconventional Guide Summary

Good Health in the 21st Century: A Family Doctor's Unconventional Guide by Carole Hungerford

Western nations are worried about the problems of an ageing population. But if we take into account the health trends in younger generations, we arrive at a frightening prediction: for the first time in history, we have produced a generation that may not outlive its parents.

Like a growing number of doctors throughout the developed world, general practitioner Carole Hungerford became concerned about these trends, and began to question a health industry based on a model of 'curing disease'.

The result is Good Health in the 21st Century, an encyclopaedic health guide that provides an extraordinary amount of easily understood information and a radically different way of maintaining well-being. Rejecting the routine cocktails of medication, with their complicated interactions and side effects, Dr Hungerford shows how to provide a chance for minerals, vitamins, and essential fatty acids to do their health-giving work.

The subjects covered in Good Health in the 21st Century include asthma, arthritis, cancer, obesity, and cardiovascular disease; mental health and neurological disorders; hormone-replacement therapy and vaccination; and macronutrients and minerals, vitamins, and essential fatty acids.

This monumental work will be used by parents, patients, and doctors for years to come.

Good Health in the 21st Century: A Family Doctor's Unconventional Guide Reviews

"Dr Carole Hungerford is to be congratulated on doing a brilliant job in producing an authoritative book that clearly explains the true cause of the ever-increasing numbers of people diagnosed with the Western World diseases...Her easy to read style combines well referenced detail on the importance of macro and micro nutrients, and of diet and lifestyle in the positive outcome of many diseases. Dr Hungerford has an anthology style of writing that is not only very appealing, but helps both the medical professional and the lay person easily relate to her compelling points of view."
--Ian Dettman PhD, Journal of the Australian College of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine
