Rabbi Ishayek’s book is a unique blueprint and guide on how to live a healthy life. The book is not a textbook of medicine, but a comprehensible book that explains in very simple terms how to live a healthy and happy life.
Rabbi Ishayek is neither a physician nor a scientist. Yet he describes the principles of healthy eating, digestion and behavior in great detail and in an easy to follow fashion. Rabbi Ishayek is a very wise man. He combines the wisdom of ancient scholars such as Maimonides (Rambam) and other principles of Jewish dietary law together with the mośt recent scientific research and evidence-based medicine. Recently a publication from Japan confirmed what Rabbi Ishayek has said for many years: People who eat slowly and follow the directions in this book tend to gain less weight and be healthier.
Rabbi Ishayek possesses unique wisdom and is a keen observer of human behavior.
His understanding, knowledge and wisdom are all evident in this book.
As a physician, I enjoyed reading the book, and I myself follow what Rabbi Ishayek preaches. I recommend this book to my family and friends, as well as to my patients. I believe that any person who follows the principles described in this book concerning eating, drinki water and general behavior will live a longer, healthier and better life.
