All My Secrets: Messages of Health From Your Body, Decoded by Dr. Kumara Sidhartha is an interesting book on how the human body works and how to keep it healthy. In this book, Dr. Kumara Sidhartha shares the expertise that he has gained from his nearly 30 years of medical practice with a focus on nutrition. In the preface, it states that: “The truth is that the human body’s default position is to heal and thrive well. To this end, it keeps sending signals to inform its likes and dislikes, hoping that we will pay attention and course-correct our behavior to maintain health and wellness.” In the chapters that follow, Dr. Kumara Sidhartha describes how to treat the human body with problems such as excess weight, cancer, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases. He provides suggestions on how to keep the brain, heart, gut, joints, bones, and muscles healthy and also discusses aging and pregnancy. There are also many nutritious recipes in the book.

Who doesn’t want to live in a healthy body? This is why All My Secrets by Dr. Kumara Sidhartha is such a useful book. In this narrative, the author uses a conversational style of writing, which is quite exceptional. On each topic, a human converses with its body, and the issues are clearly explained. I loved this style of writing because the messages don’t come across as instructions to the reader. This conversational style also enables the discussions to go to and fro, rather than uni-directional from the author to the reader. All in all, this book is highly recommended for its educational content and writing style.

After thirty years of medical experience focusing on nutrition, Dr. Kumara Sidhartha used his knowledge and expertise to write his book, All My Secrets. Through meditation, nine people have conversations with their bodies, learning facts that guide them into making better nutritional decisions. Each person's focus is different, delivering a new layer of information about cancer, weight loss, diabetes, anti-aging, gut health, and autoimmune disorders. Dr. Sidhartha also discusses Alzheimer's disease prevention and proper nutrition during pregnancy through the meditation sessions the individuals have with their bodies. The last portion of the book lists plant-based recipes, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.

Dr. Kumara Sidhartha has delivered an informative book in a fictional format that details nutritional secrets to bring balance to a person's body. Readers will learn interesting facts they can relate to their experiences with food and ways to pay attention to their body's cues about their health through real-life examples. Through in-depth conversations with their bodies, readers understand underlying problems that may contribute to unhealthy habits. Dr. Sidhartha's book doesn't focus on the damage people may already have done to their bodies. Instead, it shows the ways individuals may improve their conditions through alterations in their diets. The recipes look delicious, and I can't wait to incorporate a few of the plant-based options into my weekly meal plans. All My Secrets is a selection for anyone who wants to learn about using nutrition to keep their body healthy and balanced and reduce the risk of certain diseases.
