Format: Paperback
This book has a very detailed study of nutritional supplements, herbs etc. As the book is American, many of the food supplements are only available in America.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 16 Aug. 2009
Format: Paperback
This useful guide provides basic information on a wide range of nutritional supplements, incorporating cutting-edge research results in the fields of nutrition and supplementation. This updated edition includes information on newer supplements and herbal remedies like MSM, IP6, colostrum, olive leaf extract and saw palmetto amongst others.

In a discussion of nutrition, diet and wellness, the author provides the ABC of nutrition, from the 4 basic nutrients to the micronutrients plus guidelines for selecting and preparing foods. An interesting article deals with phytochemicals (biologically active substances in plants that give them their color and flavour).

The chapters that follow provide an overview of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and water, explaining their functions in the body and then providing more detailed information on the functions, roles and sources of these individual vitamins, minerals and amino acids. The section on water compares tap, artesian, bottled, sparkling, distilled and natural spring water.

The chapter on anti-oxidants looks at a wide spectrum of free-radical scavengers, from Alpha-Lipoic Acid to Zinc. Anti-oxidants include amino acids, enzymes, minerals, phytochemicals & trace elements. They protect the body against aging and disease. The section on enzymes deals with their role in the body and how they interact with different foods. A list of commercially available digestive enzymes is provided.

This book provides a valuable insight to nutritional healing and well-being. An essential guide for those that want to try alternative treatments of disorders without the use of drugs. The Balch's have provided the reader with the most up-to-date findings in the field of nutrition. The format of the book is easy to read and understand. It is sure to provide great dinner table topics.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 6 April 1998
Format: Mass Market Paperback
On a scale of 1-10, this is a 55! Belongs in every home library, right there next to the Merck Manual. Common diseases/symptoms are clearly explained and linked to possible nutritional deficiencies. For beer lovers like me, this book is a God-send. Its recommendations cured the numbness in my hands, decreased the age-spots on my skin and strengthened my hair and nails. Although I'm fortunate to have a doctor in my house, I've noticed that nutritional healing is lost on them (credits in Nutrition were not required in medical school). Use this book to learn about nutrients, examine your own diet, and be your own doctor with dietary changes and supplements. Your body will thank you.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Recently revised and written by a husband-and-wife team, a medical doctor and a certified nutritionist, this book is useful guide to dealing with more than 250 health disorders, including Crohn's and UC, through dietary, herbal, and supplemental therapies. I was given this book as a gift in its first edition. I have found a lot of practical advice here and I think the author's recommendations are given with necessary caution.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have not had to go to the doctor to get my usual prescription for "Flonase" since we purchased the air purifier recommended on pages 112, 298 , and 254. It runs 24 hours a day, everyday! And as an added BONUS, my husband doesn't snore as much and we got rid of the musty smell and mold in the old Church that we remodeled into our home. Fantastic machine and all the others remedies are working for other family members also! Great book! Everyone needs one!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I WAS DIAGNOISED IN 1993 WITH HEPATITIS C AND WAS TOLD THER WAS NO CURE FOR THIS. i TOOK INTERFERON INJECTIONS TWICE WITH THE LAST TIME BEING 3 INJECTIONS A WEEK FOR A YEAR. SO I HAD NOTHING TO LOSE WHEN I TRIED THESE HERBS FOR HEPATITIS. I STARTED THE HERBS IN MARCH OF 1997 AND WHEN I HAD MY USUAL MONTHLY BLOOD WORK DONE IN JUNE THERE WAS NO SIGN OF HEPATITIS FOUND. IN A FEW HOURS IT WILL BE NOVEMBER 5TH, 1997 (MY BIRTHDAY) AND THANK GOD I HAD ANOTHER BLOOD TEST DONE A FEW WEEKS AGO AND THERE IS STILL NO HEPATITIS TO BE FOUND!!! THIS BOOK MAY NOT HAVE SAVED MY LIFE BUT IT CERTAINLY HAS PROLONGED IT. ANYONE WITH ANYTHING WRONG WITH THEM SHOULD JUST LOOK UP THEIR PROBLEM IN THIS BOOK AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THEY FOLLOW WHAT IT SAYS. WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE? DARLENE HOLT
