Undoctored: Why Health Care Has Failed You and How You Can Become Smarter Than Your Doctor (Hardcover)
Conventional health care is no longer working in your favor—but thankfully, Dr. Davis is.
In his New York Times bestseller Wheat Belly, Dr. William Davis changed the lives of millions of people by teaching them to remove grains from their diets to reverse years of chronic health damage. In Undoctored, he goes beyond cutting grains to help you take charge of your own health. This groundbreaking exposé reveals how millions of people are given dietary recommendations crafted by big business, are prescribed unnecessary medications, and undergo unwarranted procedures to feed revenue-hungry healthcare systems.
With Undoctored, the code to health care has been cracked—Dr. Davis will help you create a comprehensive program to reduce, reverse, and cure hundreds of common health conditions and break your dependence on prescription drugs. By applying simple strategies while harnessing the collective wisdom of new online technologies, you can break free of a healthcare industry that puts profits over health.
Undoctored is the spark of a new movement in health that places the individual, not the doctor, at the center. His plan contains features like:
• A step-by-step guide to eliminating prescription medications
• Tips on how to distinguish good medical advice from bad
• 42 recipes to guide you through the revolutionary 6-week program
Undoctored gives you all the tools you need to manage your own health and sidestep the misguided motives of a profit-driven medical system.

"America’s 'healthcare' system is anything but. With its dedication to highly monetized interventions, consumers have been relegated to serving as pawns in an impressively profitable paradigm focused on illness, while the notion of keeping us healthy is of little concern. In Undoctored, Dr. Davis explores this revelation, and thereafter, transforms the reader from passive bystander, sitting on the sidelines at the mercy of the system, to an active participant, deeply engaged in the process of regaining and maintaining optimal health. This is a powerfully empowering and life-changing text."

"Every so often, a new book comes along that dashes well-established, preconceived notions in health. Undoctored strikes at the core of what is systemically wrong with the healthcare system, while offering a solution so simplistic, so achievable, yet so powerful in design that Dr. Davis is inevitably going to face a mountain of naysayers invested in conventional practice.”
—Deepak Chopra, New York Times bestselling author and author of You Are the Universe
