What to Read Next
The information in this book is well worth the listen. I love Dr. Low Dog's no nonsense approach to blending nutrition, nutraceuticals, and if you take them pharmaceuticals. I'm looking forward, after the first run through, to going through the pdf and book in more detail. Very informative and detailed.
Excellent narrator. I wanted to buy the ebook and audio combination but it was not offered on Amazon.

Although the narrator sounded like a robot at times this audio book was packed full of information everyone should know, including doctors. I'm going at it again to pick up the stuff I may have missed!

- Cast Into Doubt?
- Mathematica by Example, Fourth Edition.

I was on the lookout for a good layman's guide to vitamins and minerals and the cover of the book suggested the perfect book for a non professional. Unfortunately the bulk of the audio spends too much time going into the minutiae of detail about the various vitamins, what the multitude of cautions are and lengthy data on limits, doses and clinical trials. This might interest somebody seriously interested in becoming a practitioner but not someone like myself, who found my attention wandering too easily.
- Ending Slavery: How We Free Todays Slaves.
- Acta Numerica 2011: Volume 20.
- Supplemental Products with Dr. Tieraona Low Dog - The Functional Medicine Radio Show With Dr. Carri.
In the later chapters she touches on some macrominerals like Magnesium and keeps it brief and concise and I found myself wishing the whole books had been along those lines. Another credit should be given to a short chapter on clinical trials and why not to take things at face value. This was very enlightening.
Two major gripes which also put me off this book. Low Dog begins her opening chapter not on what the book has in store but with a critique of the failing of US medical training, with little or no attention paid to vitamins and minerals and how they might compliment conventional treatments.
Tieraona Low Dog, M.D.
It is a valid point but should have only briefly been addressed. The other thing that is unsettling is how the narrator has ended up sounding like Stephen Hawking when reading the book. Did somebody in the production department decide to tweak the voice after deciding it was not good or clear enough?
Vowels are pronounced slightly out of context, the sentences seem to vary in speed and my English ears could not get accustomed to the dropping of the h in herbs to become 'erbs. For me, a big disappointment.
