Say what? Books Over Blogs to Build Your Knowledge? You heard me. Learning from books beats blog learning any day. It’s true. Every time I write a blog post, I try to squeeze in as much information as possible to be both concise and complete. It's hard. In order to keep my post lengths easily consumable, I sometimes need to leave details out. That being said, blogs can be the catalyst for change.

The experience of reading a book enhances your knowledge and often is just what you’ll need to take action.

One day, during a regular Google search for “dyspraxia,” I came across a book that stood out from all the others: Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS), Natural Treatment for: Dyspraxia, Autism, ADD, Dyslexia, ADHD, Depression and Schizophrenia by Dr. Natasha Campbell-Mcbride MD, MMedSCi (neurology), MMedSci (nutrition) and mom of a child she recovered from autism with the GAPS Nutritional Protocol she developed. This book was different. It taught me that these conditions could be reversed or significantly improved through diet and nutrients and that they were medical in nature. It gave me hope and scared me at the same time. (more…)
