The following is a listing of books that will be useful to help anyone start to untangle the web of their current state of health. They will also be helpful for the curious reader who hears conflicting health information and desires a readable and reliable source of information.

Today there is a litany of resources and books that many times are not helpful and often misleading. I’ve spent the last several years reading available popular books and have listed those I think will be the most helpful and are the most accurate. I have found many patients to be misinformed and I have put this list together as a starting point for discovery. Though I personally do not agree with every point in the resources below, those listed are from professionals who have worked through the medical literature and formulated accurate readings on their thoughts and research. My hope is that this listing will be a launching point for your personal and intellectual journey.
