I have been struggling with Candida in my digestive tract for over 15 yrs. and have tried every product recommended for it. My symptoms grew worse over the years and I became very ill as it became systemic. I suffered with many food intolerances, IBS, colitis, and a host of other debilitating symptoms in which I grew weaker and became very discouraged in my attempts to get well again. A friend of mine suggested that I try 3 Lac because he had great results with it. When I went online to your website I saw where you had come out with a newer IMPROVED version of the product. It is called 5 Lac which has more of the strains of good bacteria and it targeted those people who had severe symptoms such as I did. I have been on the product for 4 weeks and I can't believe it, but the symptoms have gone away and I have been able to eat foods that I haven't been able to eat in years. I am actually putting the weight back on that I had trouble keeping on due to illness from the Candida. This is a product which I consider to be a "MIRACLE" and I highly recommend it's use, whether you have a digestive problem or just want to maintain a healthy digestive tract and good intestinal flora. THUMBS UP!!!!!!
Let's just say I've read a few pregnancy books before, and I really can not say this loudly enough: This is the BEST one that I have read so far. Sure, Emily Oster is an economist and yeah, that means that she didn't go to medical school. But! She's clearly incredibly intelligent and she's a mom, so she's been there, and she doesn't tell you what to do. She simply goes over the research behind the recommendations she heard from her doctors and gives you the information you need to make an informed choice. That's what economists do these days (forget about Wall Street - that's a different type of economics). They pull information from random bits of data and put it together to try to make sense of this crazy world. They know what types of research are reliable and which ones should be taken with a grain (or ten) of salt. And man, the world of pregnant ladies sure could use a lot less crazy! Emily Oster tackles an incredibly emotionally charged subject with wit and charm, and manages to tell a great story in the meantime. I might not do all the things that the data indicates is okay to do while pregnant, but armed with Expecting Better, I sure can make an informed choice about the things that are important to me.
And a side note about all the negative reviews here - as has been said before, many of them did not read the book and are merely writing reviews about what they've seen in the media or on certain websites. If you actually read the book, you'll find that the stance on alcohol while pregnant is very clear and supported by solid research. She also explains the difference between saying 'no amount of alcohol has been proven safe' and the idea that a glass or two of wine during your pregnancy is not going to be harmful. Want to know what she said? Buy a copy of the book and read it yourself! You won't be sorry!
She did point out that she can bend the history (in America) but can not break it (in China)! Isn't it interesting?
From all reviews plus my own experience, it's interesting to see the following rules are always apply in America:
1. People who blames China always get no doubt support from mainstream American;
2. A Chinese American who blames China is most likely get blamed by most Chinese living in America.
I watched a PBS interview with the author and immediately ordered a copy. This book is excellent. I don't let a day or evening go by without sharing it with my husband, a professor, theologian and minister. When he, too, began to praise the quality of the work, I ordered several more copies for friends and family. This book is a gift, and it thrills me to know that we are reading the same words that helped our great leader get through difficult times. Thank you, Mr. Dubois.
