5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and authoritative 9 Sep 2002
By A Customer
This is by far the most comprehensive and authoratitive book on Natural Medicine I have ever laid hands on. With close to 1000 pages, it covers a huge range of ailments and conditions, as well as looking at general issues such as "what is a healthy life style". The depth of information makes it an invaluable source of information for complementary health professionals, and it pulls together vast amounts of respected scientific evidence, giving a well balanced view. It is also of use to the interested lay-man. A wide range of natural/complementary therapies are drawn upon. It is big, and it is expensive, but if you only had one natural/complementary medicine book in your possession this one would cover everything you're likely to ever want to know!
Although some of the in-depth information might be rather daunting for the casual reader, the "summaries of treatment" can be dipped into with ease... but it's true value is in the "full picture" given - the reasons why certain treatments are appropriate, and the importance of a "wholistic" approach. This is the kind of book which can be read at whatever level of knowledge you have.

5.0 out of 5 stars A valuable resource for natural therapies 10 Oct 2000
By A Customer
The first part of the book gives general information on how to avoid illness in the first place. Detailed information is given on the immune system, stress and diet.
The second part of the book is an A-Z of ailments and their natural treatments, including common conditions such as asthma and migraines.
The strength of the book as far as the scientific mind is concerned is its extensive collection of references. The authors are careful to give a proper reference to a medical journal for every statement they make - if you don't believe them, look it up! This is more heavily referenced than some medical textbooks.
If you suffer from some recurring condition, you could do worse than look it up here and try a treatment that will target the *cause* of the problem, not the symptoms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine 2 April 2010
I discovered this book thru my health care practioner. What impressed me most about Murray's work is that he incorporates several disciplines into his methodology. First, he discusses the diseases/illnesses, then he lists the causes. For therapies, Murray gives dietary, nutritional and botanical remedies. This is a very balanced book with something for everyone. As a diebetic, I found his secton on diabetes to be quite enlightening. This is a "must" read for all those who understand that pharmaceuticals may not always be the best answer to what ails you. This ones a keeper!

5.0 out of 5 stars encyclopedia of natural medicine - must have! 26 Nov 2009
a must-have for everyone interested in taking responsibility for his own health. very thorough, specific, with scientific articles and studies to help broaden our horizons. Very open-minded, and not fundamentalist, showing both sides of the coin: the natural and the conventional medicine.
