Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Course! With Caveats This course is not for everyone, particularly if you are leery of anything outside of the bounds of traditional western medicine. If concepts like "chakras", "biofields" or "auras" set your teeth on edge, you will most likely not appreciate this course. Although this course does address concepts like these that are outside of traditional western thought, this course is packed with useful and interesting information that speaks to healing in a preventative and holistic way. If you have an open mind, you will gain a lot of insights as you progress through the course. The information on nutrition, micro- and macro-nutrients, and food sensitivities were particularly of value to me. I began making changes to my diet immediately based upon these lectures. There were a couple of mannerisms from the lecturer that I found to be somewhat off-putting, which is why I gave the series 4 stars rather than 5. The first was a bit petty on my part, but I had a hard time getting through the lecture where she kept using the phrase "digestive track". Others have also mentioned that she speaks as though to a 5-year-old and lacks charisma. I would have to agree that she speaks unbelievably slowly and punctuates every word. It helped to get through this by speeding up the lectures to 1.5X or 2X. Setting this aside, I would highly recommend this course based upon the content presented and the experience behind the lecturer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I absolutely loved this lecture series! It covered a wide range of medical interventions, including less well recognized approaches to healing. Dr. Guarneri presented many very valuable insights to health with specific recommendations that can be implemented immediately. The references to scientific research and actual data for virtually all of the suggestions was very helpful. If every person were to watch this series, the world would be an entirely different place!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very enlightening I'm 69 and can appreciate all that Dr G has to teach. Most of the aches and pains come from diet and lack of exercise. I've passed this set on to several friends and hope they can see the benefits of changing their routine. I dont think I will fall 100% in the vegan court, but its worth taking a vegan cleanse to let the body get back to normal. One thing, Dr G needs more practice teach 1/2 lessons. Her experience is giving longer presentations and you can see she was being coached during many of the lessons. All in all very good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Science of Natural Healing I bought this course to answer the tough questions regarding the integration of healthcare and what is accessible to us worldwide. The context is excellent and the knowledge is much more than just facts that everyone needs to know. This course was a refreshing motivational overview of unblocking the imagination and taking a good look at the reality of the process of wholeness regarding the human, body, spirit and mind. I loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very informative I listened to the entire lecture series once, watched a few lectures, and now listening again! Dr Mimi Guarneri is the best speaker I’ve heard! My aim is to continue learning by taking notes and expanding my knowledge about natural healing. This lecture series is exactly what the world needs to educate anyone on this extremely important subject.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good series I have listened to four or five of the lectures and they have been pretty good, not great. She’s a good speaker, but I haven’t learned much yet that I didn’t already know. It seems these are live lectures with an audience because there is clapping at the beginning and end of each one, which I don’t like. It makes her seem more like a performer and I have a hard time taking what she says seriously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Science of Natural Healing explains well. I bought this and Nutrition made Clear about a month ago. I am really happy with both. I was skeptical at first or I would have bought 5 courses when on sale. I had a hard time narrowing it down to even 5 courses then narrowed down to two to try them out first. I will definitely order more in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a must watch for you and anyone you care about this course is jam packed with reasearch based information on living healthier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More or than Expected I bought the Science of Natural Healing expecting an URL that would expire at a certain date. I got a book, DVDs that I could copy to a flash drive. Now I have the info any time any where. It is broken down into sections so when I want to review certain info it is available directly skipping everything else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would NEVER have ordered this course had I been aware that the Dr. is promoting a vegetarian diet, and is herself a vegetarian. I think this should be prominently disclosed, so that the buyer can make an informed decision. If you feel that animal protein is important to human nutrition, you will probably want to skip this one.

The information is given in a way that is easy to understand and give you a lot to think about. Although I knew some of what this course has in it, the depth of information I received added more details and information. It is also nice that if you have to pause the video or stop altogether it is easy to get back to exactly where you left off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from instructor problems I am extremely displeased with this instructor's very slow speech. Customers are not in junior high. Honestly, I stopped listening after the first lecture because she talks like (in my opinion) the customers are 5 years old. Not a good course.
