4.0 out of 5 stars Prescription for Nutritional Healing
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really Not that Great.
I thought this book was a bit overdone. No one person is ever going to need all of the information in this book. It goes into what I feel is minute details about colds, canker sores, heart disease, cancer, etc. I think a much better book, a book that you can actually use on a day to day basis is The Real Vitamin and Mineral Book by Shari Lieberman. This book goes into...

5.0 out of 5 stars Over-The-Counter Healing!, 6 April 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Prescription for Nutritional Healing: A Practical A-Z Reference to Drug-free Remedies Using Vitamins, Minerals, Herbs and Food Supplements (Prescription for Nutritional Healing, 2nd ed) (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.

By A Customer
This review is from: Prescription for Nutritional Healing: A Practical A-Z Reference to Drug-free Remedies Using Vitamins, Minerals, Herbs and Food Supplements (Prescription for Nutritional Healing, 2nd ed) (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The recommendations are wonderful!, 4 Aug 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Prescription for Nutritional Healing: A Practical A-Z Reference to Drug-free Remedies Using Vitamins, Minerals, Herbs and Food Supplements (Prescription for Nutritional Healing, 2nd ed) (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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The ABC of nutritional supplements, 16 Aug 2009
By 
Pieter Uys "Toypom" (Johannesburg) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)   
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.

The alphabetical index of Natural Food Supplements contain the latest information on nutrients from Acidophilus to Yeast, including substances like SAMe, Phosphatidylserine, MSM, Glucosamine, CoQ10, the natural antibiotic Colloidal Silver plus the natural hormones DHEA, Creatine, Melatonin and Pregnenolone.

The subject of herbs encompasses essential oils, extracts, teas, tinctures and wines. Here one can find information on anything from Acerola to Yucca, divided into the parts of the plant that is used, its phytochemical and nutrient content, its actions and uses plus further observations on the plant's qualities.

This valuable and handy guide concludes with a thorough index. Another excellent guide to supplements is Earl Mindell's Supplement Bible. For a more thorough treatment of nutritional healing, I recommend the extensive work Prescription for Nutritional Healing.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's the best alternative health care book I have!, 29 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Prescription for Nutritional Healing: A Practical A-Z Reference to Drug-free Remedies Using Vitamins, Minerals, Herbs and Food Supplements (Prescription for Nutritional Healing, 2nd ed) (Mass Market Paperback)
I purchased this book approx. 2 years ago. I became very interested in alternative health after my daughter had bouts of sickness that was not helped via medical doctors and specialists but was helped alternatively. I since have been diagnosed with a chronic disease and read the ideas that this book had. I also saw an alternative health care doctor. He put me on various things. When I went to refer back to my book, the items he prescribed were almost the same as what was in my book. I am constantly referring to it for one thing or another and have recommended it highly. My sister, who is a nurse, also went out and bought the book and has found it very informative and helpful. The book is excellent!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My most dog-eared, well-used "medical" reference book!, 14 July 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Prescription for Nutritional Healing: A Practical A-Z Reference to Drug-free Remedies Using Vitamins, Minerals, Herbs and Food Supplements (Prescription for Nutritional Healing, 2nd ed) (Mass Market Paperback)
If you can only have one book to guide you about living a healthy lifestyle and treating conditions using herbs, vitamins and natural supplements, THIS is the book to have. It is well-organized, thorough, and easy to read and understand. The book first covers the basics about the vitamins, herbs, minerals, other supplements and healthy eating. A large portion of the text is devoted to detailed information about common conditions and illnesses. The book concludes by going over different therapies; how they are done, what they correct, and the authors are careful to caution the reader where appropriate. I use this book very often, and with good results!
