Review

--<br /><br />...by board-certified nutritionist and weight loss authority Jonny Bowden is a superbly informative reference for non-specialist general readers with an interest in the use of vitamins, foods, supplements, and treatments applicable for more than seventy-five common illnesses and ailments. Incorporating analogies, humor, and solid research science, the text is particularly well organized and accessible. Offering a wealth of information from the use of cinnamon to moderate blood sugar, to the use of vitamin C to protect against cancer, to eating celery in order to lower blood pressure, to using acupuncture for treating infertility, this illustrated compendium of 'cures' and curatives is accurate, reliable, practical, and a core addition to personal, family, and community library Alternative Medicine reference collections and supplemental reading lists. --Mid West Book review<br /><br />Who doesn't have a 'natural cures' book out these days? With diet and health books coming out of our ears these days, it seems everybody and their momma has their own take on what it takes to get and stay healthy in modern society. Sadly, many of these "experts" are nothing more than fly-by-night shysters who are simply in it to bilk you out of your hard-earned dollars by making you buy some obscure products that can (SURPRISE SURPRISE!) only be purchased from the author's web site. AVOID THESE 'natural cures' books! That's what makes Dr. Jonny Bowden's THE MOST EFFECTIVE NATURAL CURES ON EARTH so special. He presents well-researched and commonly-found cures to many of life's ailments that completely run the gamut. From obesity to diabetes to joint pain and everything in between, Dr. Bowden has got you covered. You may be surprised to learn a particular dietary approach that is often erroneously labeled as a 'fad' by much of the medical community and the media is one of the primary 'cures' that is shared for a cross-section of ailments. Unlike most books of this genre, Dr. Bowden makes this stuff sound cool, too. His engaging writing style is what fans of his have been loving since he wrote LIVING THE LOW-CARB LIFE and THE 150 HEALTHIEST FOODS ON EARTH. You get more of the same with all the very latest studies to back up every claim made in this book. This is DEFINITELY one book you won't want to be without if you care about your health. --Livin La Vida<br /><br />This is a wonderful book that presents a vast amount of useful information in an accessible way. The author supports the material he presents in the book by citing credible sources. He also doesn't shy away from addressing negative as well as positive elements about the "cures" he presents and he gives the reader sources for additional reading on a myriad of topics. The information in the book is very practical and can easily be incorporated into one's day to day life --Angie Lynn, Aug 2008<br /><br />Jonny Bowden's new book, The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth, is another great achievement by one of alternative medicine's best authors. It's accessible, well researched and will have a profound impact on your health and your future. Every household should have at least one copy. The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth is a fantastic reference for doctors but I recommend it to my patients as well. Whether you're looking for insights into a particular supplement, a strategy for treating a specific illness or expert advice for staying young, active and healthy, his book will exceed your expectations every time you open it. Jonny's writing style is warm and entertaining, and the benefits of his wisdom are readily available. Turn to any page and you'll find a great idea that's easy to understand and easy to apply right away. Wh --A Doctor's Review, Sept 2008

Product Description

A comprehensive look at natural treatments and healing methods that work.

Jonny Bowden takes his practical, knowledgeable, and open-minded approach -- the same approach that made his previous book, The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth, so successful -- and focuses it on natural cures, revealing the best of alternative medicine for a mainstream audience. Through his personal use, extensive research, and wide-ranging expertise in nutrition and health, Jonny sorts through the myriad home remedies from every discipline and tradition to show which work and how best to use these proven healing techniques. He also explains through approachable and articulate descriptions why they work and on what basis he selected these cures -- whether it is patient testimonials or the latest scientific studies to give you peace of mind and the information you need about each treatment.

The book explores more than 75 common conditions, including allergies, cancer, high cholesterol, depression, diabetes, hypertension, menopause, and stress.

4.0 out of 5 stars easy to read 14 Sep 2011
By K. Platt TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Natural cures for many illnesses and self-help can be found in this book. What I like about Jonny Bowden is that he explains things in terms anyone can understand. Find easy and effective release from depression, anxiety and indigestion and some others you might not wish to discuss with anyone. The simple presentation works every time and it's no wonder that these books sell so well. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

3.0 out of 5 stars Desperately in need of references. 17 Nov 2009
By S. Matthew - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like Jonny Bowden a lot. He demonstrates a very reasonable attitude towards nutritional and lifestyle interventions for health issues, and never comes off as alarmist. Yet after reading this book, he also strikes me as somewhat hypocritical. In the introduction, he talks about how the mainstream media and medical establishment have selectively interpreted research studies on nutritional therapies to make them seem less effective, and done the same to studies on pharmaceutical interventions to make them seem more effective. The problem is that Bowden may be doing the same thing, albeit in the opposite direction. We have no way to know, because there is not a single footnote in this book, despite the fact that Bowden references research studies quite often. This was also an issue with his 150 healthiest food book, although it was not nearly as problematic there because the book was not explicitly a book on medical treatments. This book also suffers from a lack of organization, and is not as comprehensive as books such as Alan Gaby's Natural Pharmacy, although perhaps that was not its intention. Again, Bowden is a stand up guy. He is to be praised for refusing to promote conspiracy theories about modern medicine, and his conversational tone makes his book a pleasure to read. Next time he writes a book however, he should make more of an effort to incorporate sound scientific practices into its formulation, so that it can truly challenge some of the troubling biases in our healthcare system.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book everyone should have 5 Feb 2008
By Jeannette Bessinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Jonny Bowden has done it again with "The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth". Together with "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth", Jonny has created a series of healthy living reference manuals that is fast becoming a contemporary treasury of reliable, practical and powerfully potent health information for our time. Written in a remarkably clear and accessible way, this book gives you the tools you need to reclaim (or protect) your health with a broad range of safe, thoroughly researched natural treatments. The "cures" range from the physical, such as exercise, to the mental, relaxation, to the edible, including whole foods, herbs, natural supplements and more. Addressing ailments ranging from the everyday (jet lag and acne) to much more serious illnesses and disorders such as cancer and autism, this is a book that all of us would benefit from having on our shelves. Thanks and kudos to Jonny for continuing to empower us to make healthy living an attainable goal.
