Donald Lyman is a self-taught nutritionist who is interested in the advances made in nutritional medicine around the world. With a career in agriculture and experience in pathology, Donald Lyman was able to see the link between malnutrition and disease. This is Donald's second book. It has 400 pages and is full of nutritional advice that will change the way you look at dieting and food in general.
Triple Life Threat is divided into 3 parts. In part one, the author talks about solutions to COPD. In part two, he talks about diabetes, its causes, and some ways to prevent it. Finally, in part three, the author explains Alzheimer’s disease. Donald is an advocate for the Naturopathic approach to medicine rather than the Allopathic approach to medicine. Donald also explained why we should focus more on using natural means to prevent or treat the causes of diseases rather than just treating the symptoms, and I agree with him.
Donald Lyman is a very meticulous writer. This is evident in the way he explains his points and backs them up with proper research and statistics. His choice of words is simple, and his explanations are easy to understand. When he explained the difference between the various types of diabetes, I was able to understand it properly. This is a big deal because I’ve never been able to understand the difference between the different types of diabetes.
The only issue I had while reading this book was the slew of nutrients the author was recommending. The nutrients were so many, and I could not keep up with all of them. This made reading the second part of the book confusing and tedious. I would have loved to see a diagram or table showing these nutrients and their uses. This would have acted as a guide for readers to incorporate some of these nutrients into their diet.
I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars because the issues I had in the second part of the book affected my reading experience. I didn’t rate it lower because I believe that more people should be aware of their nutritional well-being. I also enjoyed reading and learning from the first and third parts of the book. I didn’t come across any errors in this book, so I believe this book received exceptional editing. Furthermore, I recommend this book to adults over the age of 18 who may have suffered from health complications in the past and are looking for ways to improve the quality of their lives by eating healthy food. Anyone approaching old age should read this book to learn about proper nutrition and how it can help reduce the risk of health complications that come with old age.
