Amazon berekent de beoordelingen van een product met behulp van een zelflerend model in plaats van een gemiddelde score. Het lerend machinemodel houdt rekening met factoren zoals: de leeftijd van een recensie, hoe behulpzaam klanten het vonden en of de beoordelingen geverifieerd zijn.
This book was recommended to me by Amazon, while reading "the gut". Amazon not knowing that last month I went to the neurologist desperate that my imigran-medication did't work anymore. For about 20 years I'm suffering (period-related) two monthly *nerve-wrecking* migraine episodes of 48h. The neurologist subscribed me Eletriptan and Topiramaat, the latter an anti-epilepticum for profylaxe. I was not yet ready to take such strong medication, leaving the pills untouched when I saw this book. I quit eating carbs and gluten immediately and for the first time in ages I didn't have migraine with my period. I'm flabbergasted that my neurologist didn't mention gluten-sensitivity to me as a possible cause for my migraines and I'm very grateful to dr. Perlmutter for writing about his knowledge and saving me from having to take very strong medications. I gave this book 5 stars for changing my life from a life of being dictated by suffering to a life of freedom and feeling in control of things. His writing is not always clear in detail (eg I missed an explantion about the chemistry of soy, peanuts and legumes). I've always been a vegetarian and needed more explanation to abandon these foods just because 'they also take nutrients with them'. I can imagine that more vegetarians who read the book miss that. But it's only a detail. I would strongly recommend the book to anyone who has a neurological disease or problem. But while this book is also for preventing diseases like Alzheimer, it's good to read for everyone who wants to live a long happy healthy life!
