“Not only is it a great yarn about two phenomenal women and their pioneering roles … This book was charmingly written and a pleasure to read. Not only is it a great yarn about two phenomenal women and their pioneering roles in the alternative health movement, but I picked up some useful tips about nutrition that clarified a lot of ‘food confusion’ I was having due to the current plague of contradictory nutrition advice. The recipes were an added bonus! Great work by the author to pull these biographical histories together. Highly recommended.” Amazon book review for ‘Gut Instinct: Mrs Snook’s Diet’
After following Dorothea Snook’s gut-cleanse diet and health treatments, I felt fantastic and years younger. My new energy levels remind me of the energy I had as a child and young person. I lost just over 13 kilos and my cholesterol levels dropped from 7.2 to 5.4, which I was thrilled about. My cholesterol levels have always ranged between 6 and 7.2, except for the time I did a famous diet six years ago and it shot up to twelve!
My former wife and I both went together to see Mrs Snook. The reason we went was because we’d been married for seven or eight years and were trying to start a family. We had both undertaken gynecological and fertility testing and been told there was no medical reason why either of us couldn’t have children but it just hadn’t happened. Dorothea did an iridology test on me. She could tell from the iridology testing that I once had a broken leg and arm – it was pretty incredible really. She was particularly good. She gave me diet charts on foolscap paper and a little green book called ‘What a Way to Go!!’ that had diets and information in it. I didn’t stick religiously to her diet – but I cut out meat and ate lots of salads. My wife did as well. Within three months, my wife was pregnant and we went on to have three children – one after the other. I kept going to see Dorothea, perhaps once a month, to monitor my progress and stay on track. She was fairly extreme and radical, particularly for that time. But her diet and the things she recommended were working for me. I had a lot more mental clarity.
