Dr. Leyla grew up in a household where her father was a medical doctor and her mother a surgical technician. Doctors and drugs was a normal part of life and growing up. She became a pharmacist to help people with their health.
Now a pharmacist for almost 20 years, she has watched as patients take more and more medications over time, only to get get sicker and sicker.
Even though people depend upon medical doctors for all their healthcare needs, the simple truth is that medical doctors and pharmacists have limited knowledge of treatments other than pharmaceutical drugs to treat any sickness or disease. Dr. Leyla learned there are a variety of alternative and natural ways to treat health conditions that people often struggle with for years. This motivated her to write her book, Off Balance, The American Way of Health, A Pharmacist’s Perspective on Why Drugs Don’t Work.
Her book is a big picture and easy to read book showing the limitations of doctors and drugs. She also interviewed several people who were able to heal themselves from health conditions their doctors could not treat, including chronic pain, neuropathy, chronic fatigue, addiction, diabetes, and cancer.
Her unique and simple message is welcomed by audiences who are not satisfied with their healthcare, and are seeking better solutions. Her message is honest, and one that is not readily understood or shared by most pharmacists.
The book includes insightful interviews with alternative healing practitioners as well as individuals who’ve reclaimed their health through natural means after the American health care system failed them. Chapters begin with pithy quotes and color cartoon illustrations, and there are colorful charts, interview balloons and chapter summaries, too. Ali offers a thoughtful guide for those seeking another path. Insightfully portrays an ailing American health system and ways to improve one’s health.” --Kirkus Review “Off Balance is an entertaining, highly accessible and big-picture view of a healthcare system seen through the eyes of a pharmacist.” --Adam Smith, Alliance for Natural Health International
