My eyebrows went up on one claim about the result of a controlled study of "therapeutic touch." I checked the citation-- it was to an unpublished source and the researcher is discredited. So, I decided to apply the 50% rule to this book. If half of this book is on target, it's still worth considering.

In my "favorites" shelf... an expose on American medicine and the AMA.
Includes the witchhunts of the AMA after midwives.
John Robbins says, Doctors will come down from their thrones when we get off our knees.
A necessary book to inform yourself what to be aware of regarding western medicine.
A "must-read" for anyone who wants to educate themselves about our medical system. You will be both appalled and uplifted--appalled at what has happened then and now; uplifted by the
alternatives that are out there. There is hope. As always, John Robbins writes with love in his heart.
While this book is somewhat on the fanatic side of things, the author has done a good job of collecting his research and making it accessible to the average reader. This book has influenced many of my friends to go for a midwife rather than an ob-gyn for their pregnancies and births.

John Robbins' "Reclaiming Our Health" is a very poignant, gentle, wise, courageous eye opening account into the truth about the medical industry.
A must read expose of the follies of the current medical model. I recommend it for those who want to take responsibility for their own health.
I found a lot of thought provoking stuff in this book when I was pregnant for the first time. Thanks for giving it to me Lia!
Fantastic info on midwives, menopause, the AMA, and fighting cancer by alternative means. It's an important message.
