Recommended Reading

I read quite a few books on any number of topics.  I would say that, for a mom of two boys, I read voraciously.  However, most of it is done on my exercise bike doing a modified aerobic routine.

My husband is the one who reads voraciously.

This area will certainly be bursting with recommendations as time goes on.  This is just the beginning.


Why Am I Always So Tired?

Gittleman discusses in great detail, but for the non-technical reader, the ins and outs of copper overload, something that is not typically recognized by the mainstream medical community as being a source of fatigue.

Included are an explanation of the condition, its causes and remedies including dietary and lifestyle recommendations.  This may be a bit simplistic for those with severe overload but it is a valuable resource in any library.  I think that this is an epidemic in our hectic Western culture.

One of the most interesting sections of the book is a detailed listing of foods and their copper content. You will be amazed at the amount of copper you might be eating!

Nutritional Balancing and Hair Mineral Analysis

This book is foundational to understanding the reasoning behind the approach that I have adopted for our whole family to deal with the health issues that we are facing.

It is a gentler, natural way to release toxins and heavy metals and to encourage the body to heal itself. It also is surprisingly inexpensive.

This book is a great companion to Gittleman’s work and takes the treatment one step further. A long read, and I don’t agree with everything in the book, but the information is invaluable.


  1. Hey! I wondered if you know of any good books about using essential oils? I am new to them and want to know more about how to use them. I saw your research about which was the best company and I am buying from Native American Nutritionals.
