Science should be removed from the title.

To not purchase this if you're looking for an objective review of the current science on health. Author approaches subjects with anecdotal evidence and confirmation bias.

Concepts like strengthening the soil, nutritious diet, exercise, spirituality......are all explained in a way that appeals to us on an intellectual level as well as intuitive level. Prevention, really is the best intervention. And the chapter on environment was really an eye opener....very informative too. Dr Guarneri's audio performance is also quite engaging. Thanks for this wonderful course.
