to Fly, a journey toward wellness is a must read for anyone wishing
to improve the quality of their own health or that of their family
and friends. It is a primer - the first book you should read if
you want to learn about the rather intricate, but very direct
connections between the quality of your health and the environment
as we enter the new millennium. The story is real, the issues
are complex but clear, the characters are believable. It is a
story of the family next door - one to which anyone can relate.
It is a dialogue - a descriptive journey of one family's search
for better health - for a better life. Along the way, Free to
Fly explodes many modem myths created and perpetuated by our over-medicated
society in an increasingly toxic world. This book is about accepting
responsibility for one's own health. It is about embarking on
a journey toward wellness.
Health is NOT a way of life!
Americans have come to accept ill health as a normal way of life.
People are medicated as never before, and children suffer from
chronic conditions in epidemic proportions. Thirty years ago,
asthma, ear infections and behavioral problems were the exception;
today, they are household words. Food and chemical sensitivities
are growing in frequency, as is chronic fatigue and systemic yeast
overgrowth. And 'Sick Building Syndrome' has become an all-too-
this alarming state of affairs, too many health professionals
continue to operate in denial. Rather than find the root cause
of illness, patients are encouraged to use prescription drugs
to allay their symptoms. Where medicine has no answers, patients
often hear the words, 'there's nothing more we can do for you'
or 'it's all in your head'. There are answers, however. The growing
field of environmental medicine and complementary healthcare has
identified many of the factors contributing to society's general
ill health. Along with complementary practices such as orthomolecular
nutrition, diet therapy, NAET (Namudripad Allergy Elimination
Technique), homeopathy and a wide variety of other approaches
people are finding their way to wellness.
“Free to Fly”?
the author's experience as a health practitioner, counsellor and
lecturer, Judit Rajhathy has come to appreciate just how starved
people are for solutions. Although there are many health books
on the market, most are under the umbrella of specific illnesses.
Unfortunately, most people don't make the connection between their
symptoms and their disease. Moreover they often miss the central
connection between their illness and their day-to-day environment
-that what they eat, drink and breathe have a profound impact
upon their level of well-being. Free to Fly: a journey toward
wellness makes these very important connections.
to Fly takes an entirely new approach to the issues of illness
and health. Guided by symptoms rather than diagnoses, it offers
readers the opportunity to recognize themselves in Jillian Stowe,
the main character, who typifies a growing number of people for
whom modern medicine has no answers. Candida, chronic fatigue,
attention deficit disorder, food and multiple chemical sensitivities
and much more are addressed in this book, although the reader
doesn't need to identify with any of these disorders beforehand.
book is also unique in that it invites the reader to become involved
in Jillian's journey in an intimate, personal way - to learn as
she learns. Complex information is distilled into lay terms, keeping
the story simple and the principles easy to understand. Each chapter
probes a little deeper into the reasons for her illness and leads
the reader to more specific information by referring them to key
books in the field of holistic health and environmental medicine.
The health professionals in Free to Fly offer a broad overview
of complementary health practices in a straightforward and palatable
way. Jillian's journey toward wellness takes us on a learning
curve from the conventional, allopathic approach to medicine to
a new and intriguing world of empowering alternatives.
is a timely book to which everyone can relate. It's about making
connections and taking personal responsibility for one's own health.
It hits close to home. It could happen to someone you love - it
could happen to you. Just as Silent Spring by Rachel Carson spurred
revolutionary changes in public attitudes and government policy
toward the environment, Free to Fly could be the book that changes
the way you view your own health and health care.
