The Prime by Kulreet Chaudhary, MD

Over the past 18 months, my sister-in-law has lost over 50 pounds, increased her energy, and improved her health and life while working with a naturopath to rid her body of toxins and eliminating inflammatory foods from her diet.  With that said, I have seen how toxins can effect a person’s body, so when I was offered the opportunity to review this book, I must admit that I am already a believer of the basic information covered in “The Prime” by Kulreet Chaudhary, M.D.

This book is easy to read and understand and covers concepts in traditional Indian medicine that healing the body starts with healing the gut.  While Western medicine treats symptoms, Dr. Chaudhary shares how she truly heals (not just masks symptoms with medications) patients through detoxification.  Although weight loss was not the primary objective of this program, it was a happy circumstance. 

Healing the body, clearing the mind and improved overall health are the targets.  Dr. Chaudhary shares how to do that with the use of herbal supplements to cleanse the digestive system over a period of several weeks.  This program does not require you to stop eating certain foods, but through the improvement in your body’s function as you begin to heal, foods that are not “good” for you will not be (as) appealing. 

I think it’s important that we take responsibility for our own health, and the ideas in “The Prime” make sense.  I, for one, am going to give it a go.  I promise to let you know my results.

Letters to My Daughters: The Art of Being a Wife by Barbara Rainey

“Letters to my Daughters” by Barbara Rainey is a book of loving encouragement for women wanting to be the best wife they can be. Definitely a wonderful reminder for those of us who have been married for several years, but also great insight for those just embarking on their marriage journey.

We have done the “Passport to Purity” weekend with our children that Dennis and Barbara Rainey share, and I have always aspired to have that same openness with our children that they have with their family.  Their honest and caring teaching style is again found in this book for wives.

Also, this book is absolutely beautiful.  The calligraphy found throughout is stunning.  I found myself wanting to frame several pages and hang them on the walls of my home.  Definitely a gift-worthy item all the way around.
