A Book Review: Feed Your Body Right - By Dr. Lendon Smith, MD

March 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 157

Smith begins his book by giving a little history of how he got to where he was at the time. Trained as a standard medical doctor, he had grown weary of the standard allopathic procedure: diagnose illness and treat with drugs. He found nutrition to be helpful and when John Kitkoski contacted him, they were able to work together to develop a program to balance the body's chemistry (alkaline and acid). Since the sense of smell is connected to the brain, their program makes sense. During this time of research and development, they were able to document that indeed the blood tests results agreed with the ability of one to monitor their health by smell and taste.

Highlights of the Book:

1. Brief History of Mankind's Efforts to Improve Health - Chapter 3

2. What Your Body is Trying to Tell You - Sample list of symptoms and nutritional deficiencies. Chapter 5

3. Chemical Imbalances have symptoms and nutritional solutions - supplement the deficiencies and remove foods / allergens. Chapter 6

4. They devised a 1-10 scale for patients to rate the smell of supplements. 1 sweet, smells very good to 10 - it stinks, yucky The rating determines whether you need to take that supplement or not. Chapter 8

5. For example: When Vitamin A smells good, you need to take it. Vitamin A deficiency is linked to stress, asthma, fevers, frequent colds, bronchitis, inner ear disease, diabetes, cortisone use, smoking or exposure to pollutants, trauma, cancer, digestive disturbances, alcohol ingestion, pregnancy, liver problems. P. 66

6. After a brief introduction to chemistry, Smith states that it takes time to balance the body's chemistry through a balanced diet. Even diets that are considered balanced may not be balanced when you look at their nutritional composition - vitamins and minerals. Chapter 9

7. In chapter 10 and 11, Dr. Smith gives guidelines to analyze blood tests. Sometimes an allopathic doctor will say that such and such result is within normal range, but there may be an unspoken qualifier to that - you need to ask (at least yourself with the use of Smith's guidance), "Normal range for whom or with what condition?"

8. In Chapter 12, Smith begins with Acne and ends with Warts (some 67 conditions) contrasting the allopathic, natural and Life Balances solutions.

9. Electrolytes and their essential part in your health are presented in Chapter 13. How do the nutrients get to where they need to be? "Without electrolytes and the electricity they produce, life is impossible." P. 143

10. Smith covers some areas in more depth: Hypertension (Chapter 14); Mental and Emotional Dysfunctions (Chapter 15); The Immune System: Allergies and Sensitivities (Chapter 16); and Amino and Fatty Acid Supplements (Chapter 17).

11. Smith introduces his Life Balance Program in the summary and appendices.

12. I have no personal experience with Smith's program. However, I do have experience with and know people who have used the following program. Karen Neilson trained with John Kitkoski: The reader should research both and decide which works best for you.
