Description: In his book, Dr. Stoll discusses the critical state of health care in America today and asks the difficult questions about the monopoly of conventional medicine that limits the options available to most consumers of medical services. Beyond this, he describes many common sense, safe approaches to reversing the effects of many of the ills produced by the modern American Lifestyle. Such ills as the common cold, hiatus hernia, fungus infections, allergies, arthritis, mind and memory disorders, behavioral disturbances, IBS, Crohn's and colitis, endocrine conditions, AIDS, vascular insufficiency and more are addressed.
Dr. Stoll describes how allopathic medicine is still the best choice for surgery, management of trauma and acute infections, but that chronic diseases such as arthritis, allergies, cancer, etc., are not well managed by allopathic options. Dr. Stoll teaches and encourages readers to think for themselves through knowledge gained from education and to make clear, informed choices in health care.
Endorsement: "Saving Yourself is a powerful presentation of commonsense medicine by a medical doctor who has seen both sides. Saving Yourself provides a dozen chapters that specifically address many common conditions that are seen as difficult to cure medically but that respond well to drugless treatment. The authority with which Dr. Stoll writes is effortless, based on his decades of clinical observation of what consistently works with real patients. Saving Yourself is much like having the doctor's good sound advice, and his very pleasant bedside manner to boot, right on your bookshelf. I like this book. I like its no-nonsense attitude, the plentiful references to the scientific literature, and the practical how-to sections." -- Andrew Saul, contributing editor, Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, author of Doctor Yourself: Natural Healing that Works
