“Melanie Gow knows something that we all need to know. She has learnt that it is possible to combine alternative therapies and traditional medicine and to come up trumps. In ‘Toasters Don’t Roast Chickens’ she tells us how to do it while holding onto our integrity and our sense of humour.
We do not have to be blinded by science while waiting for doctors who do not have time to see us. Nor do we have to visit sandal-wearing practitioners and go on boring diets and change our whole lives. Gow teaches us how to dance between the two different forces for healing and to choose what is right for us and for our children.
If we do what she suggests our families will be stronger, healthier and happier and we will be able to take responsibility for our health.”
