Not having read another book on herpes, I cannot compare this book to any other book. However, I can compare my health before and after reading "Making Peace With Herpes" and working with Christopher, and I will never need drug therapy, and I have not had any more outbreaks.
Everything I do now is for the better of my health, herpes, body, and soul, because I am living and eating and loving consciously. Christopher advocates through his book, and through his life, living and treating herpes holistically. As he says "There is an ocean of love and mercy around us at all times, ready, willing and able to assist in our healing. To receive your healing you can tune into this life-force anytime".
You will learn how to accept that you have herpes (cold sores are herpes too) and change your life to make the virus inactive.
Christopher inspires by relating personal stories and writings such as "Nine Years in The Wilderness", "Nine Stages of Dealing With a Herpes Diagnosis" (EXCELLENT), "He or She Just Ain't That Into You" (a personal favorite, you will see why).
Christopher further educates by including his herpes diet (it works and also made my winter allergies much less severe), recommended supplements, lifestyle and state of consciousness tips, a guided daily visualization for herpes, how to handle an outbreak, and much information on his natural remedies and how and why he makes them.
I recommend this book if you are ready to live the life you envision!
