The Ultimate Prescription by Dr. James L. Marcum, MD

I found this book very interesting. In fact, I read it straight through cover to cover in one day which is unusual for me to do with a non-fiction book.

Dr. Marcum took the Genesis account of creation and paralleled it to God’s plan for our health, essentially the idea that the Bible is our “Owner’s Manual.” He stressed the need for enough clean air in our environment and enough pure water in our systems. He also pointed out some of the problems with current products on the market such as prescription and over-the-counter drugs, scents, cleaning products, processed food products, etc. Basically he is advocating a vegan lifestyle. I am not sure I agree with him 100% that meat, poultry, fish and milk products were not intended for human consumption because after all, Jesus and his disciples ate fish and the Old Testament is full of instructions about how to prepare meat to eat. But for the most part, I found all the information in this book very helpful and it has given me some incentive to change some of my lifestyle habits. I recommend this book to everyone to read because there is some information here that we don’t find anywhere else.

I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale to review.
