Ecellent sourcebook for a multitude of illnesses, symptoms, and general complaints. Skillfully blends various healing modalities to create a menu of choices for healing. This edition revised and expanded. At the very top in its class. If one is interested in taking an active and effective role in their own healing, this guide is most highly recommended.

Excellent, excellent book. My doctor told me I had hypothyroidism and said I had to take synthroid forever. I did not want to already be taking a prescription med in my mid-30s so I got myself on a hypothyroid regiment taken from this book. I did not take everything the book recommended but MOST of the ones recommended by the CRUCIAL section. In a couple of months my thyroid levels were within normal limits.

Then I had tonsilitis. I tried to get rid of it by just waiting it out and taking zinc pills. But after a month, I caved in and got antibiotics. After the week-long course, the sore throat was mostly gone, but not completely. So I put together a supplement regiment based on this book. A month later, I was completely normal.

This book has been helpful in supporting my own immune system. It's not a fix-all, you have to use sound judgement. Obviously, it won't fix kidney failure, but if you have weak kidneys, it gives you some supplement ideas that could support your body.

Also, certain supplements you have to use your common sense. To help my tonsilitis, it suggested colloidal silver. But I did my own research and felt that this supplement might cause more harm than good, and excluded that in my own supplement program.

great resource. my only problem is that it comes from a anti-dairy, anti-red meat stance. i am neither--grassfed meat and raw dairy are 2 of the healthiest foods ever!

I have always gone to this book as a reference when it was available and now having my own copy will avail much more referencing. Recently used it while speaking to someone about what was ailing her and was helpful in adding to our discussion.
I just saw the latest edition in the store so I give the book 4 stars instead of 5 because I'm sure the latest edition may have some good tidbits of info that my edition may not.

Great reference for those interested in nutrition and health, even though it's an earlier edition...

Just a little worn on the corners from just having a while.
