What They’re Saying:

  • Imagine: A Whole Different Kind of Medical Care is the guide I wish I’d had when beginning my naturopathic journey years ago. The book is an outstanding introduction to what naturopathic medicine really is, and covers many areas so often ignored in today’s typical medical climate. With her extensive background in both western and naturopathic medicine, Dr. Marcantel is uniquely qualified as an expert, sharing her knowledge and encouragement to finding the right balance of care for each individual’s medical health. Once you start reading, you’ll recognize yourself everywhere throughout the book. You won’t be able to put it down.”

  • If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, and you feel trapped by a medical system that relies more on lab tests than on patient input, you need to read Imagine: A Whole Different Kind of Medical Care. This highly readable book by naturopath Dr. Tina Marcantel (with husband Peter Marcantel, M.Ed.) empowers readers to take charge of their own health with detailed information and compassionate inspiration. Dr. Marcantel describes common problems with hormone imbalance, thyroid function, adrenal fatigue and fibromyalgia. Using her knowledge of traditional and non-traditional therapies, she offers ways to address these problems from a variety of angles without prescribing one “right” approach for everyone. Her caring, direct approach made me feel understood and energized. This book helped me see that I am not going crazy – it’s possible to have medical problems that go undetected on standard lab tests – and there is another way to wellness. Now I’m eager to continue my journey to better health. Thanks, Dr. Marcantel!

  • If you’re living your life going from doctor to doctor and specialist to specialist only to be told, ‘We can’t find anything wrong with you…” If you’re feeling like you’re losing your mind from being unable to find answers to why you feel so lousy and why everything hurts all the time…This book is for you. I can say without any dramatic flare that Dr. Marcantel saved my life. After exhausting a multitude of painful tests and a plethora of ‘the best’ specialists, I had gotten to the point that I was going to let a pain clinic severe nerves just so I could have a decent quality of life. Literally, within days of seeing Dr. M. I found answers to heart arrhythmia (which eluded heart specialists for months!), exhaustion, joint and bone pain, etc. Dr. M. allowed me to be active in my own healing while supplying the knowledge, supplements and medications I needed to get my chronic illness under control. It is a battle I fight to this day, and I will for the rest of the my life, but Dr. M. (and her wonderful, different book) gave me insights, choices and information that I was unable to find for OVER twenty years! And if you’re looking for some answers, do yourself a favor and purchase this book now. I hope it helps you find the answers that you are seeking. I hope it helps you find a better quality of life. Thank you Dr. M.
