Don Colbert, MD, is board certified in family practice and in anti-aging medicine. He has also received extensive training in nutritional and preventative medicine, and he has helped millions of people to discover the joy of living in divine health. In addition to speaking at conferences, he is the author of the New York Times best sellers Dr. Colbert's "I Can Do This" Diet and The Seven Pillars of Health, along with other CBA best sellers such as Eat This and Live!, Get Fit and Live!, Eat This and Live! for Kids, Stress Less, Toxic Relief, the Bible Cure series, Living in Divine Health, Deadly Emotions, and What Would Jesus Eat?
Bolstering the medical discussion on managing diabetes with biblical quotations and examples of prayers, Colbert here stresses faith as an additional management component. The science and medical information, which is accurate, sound, and current (he includes a 2011 Centers for Disease Control survey), offers a review of basic management techniques (diet, nutrition, weight management, and lifestyle changes). The PDF referred to throughout the audio consists of useful lists and sidebars. VERDICT This book would be more impressive had more references been noted within the text, footnotes, endnotes, or listed in a bibliography. Kelly Ryan Dolan holds the listener's attention with his clear, accent-free reading. This audiobook will appeal to readers preferring faith-based titles to purely scientific treatises.-Laurie Selwyn, formerly with Grayson Cty. Law Lib., Sherman, TX (c) Copyright 2012.
