Product Description


This title contains 2 books in slipcase. The FDR' is the 21st century's ultimate (time consorted) definitive compendium of humanity's relationship to life and vitality using plant whole foods as preventative and remissive medicine. The FDR' contains whole food wisdom from the Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Hebrews, Chinese, Native Americans, Incas and others who through time treated themselves to high vitality and longevity using plant produced whole food. The FDR' not only provides today's scientific conspectus on whole foods but more importantly the results of the human collective experience over time and distance that developed into the eminent practical knowledge of the human collective.The FDR' was crying from the dust of the earth to be recaptured, recorded and shared once again. With the burning and destruction of the Library of Alexandria, as well as, other timeless repositories of recorded human observation being laid waste, the FDR' is a profound record of wisdom's rediscovery handed down through time mouth to ear, grandmother, daughter, daughter to granddaughter.

The FDR' will teach you why you should never fight disease or the symptoms of disease - these are the body's processes for curing itself. When you treat symptoms, you are curing the body cure. This suppresses the body release of toxins and irritants and drives the condition deeper into systems and organs, creating side-effects and other "diseases" and increasing the sales of drugs and supplements. Instead of fighting disease, learn how to lay down the weapons of war and simply, elegantly embrace life's freely given principles of health and vitality. The FDR' will teach you how to assist your body's inherent ability to heal itself from the accumulative damage caused by months and even years of habitual reactions, beliefs, movement patterns, the use of toxic supplements and prescriptions as well as over the counter drugs. The FDR' will teach you that you have "safe choices" that are, tested by time and experience and not the published findings of a research lab, funded by companies with an agenda to increase stock values for share holders with the latest, hottest, scientific "miracle break through".

These discoveries of cut, burn and poison in "medicine" the "sick industry's" self declared, out of control raging war-a war on your body, (and all) at your expense!Learn how to put your wallet away, learn why medical insurance is one of the worst myths you hold onto. Learn why so called "preventive medicine" is nothing more than a hook to get you suckered into the "perpetuate your disease" system, to mould you (using fear) into a perfect customer/consumer; a blind follower, adding to their flock of "Little Sheeple" (sheep people). The FDR' will help you to be Confident, Independent, Sovereign and Free of, "trusting too much" in the "Arm of Flesh." The FDR' is a result of the children and grandchildren of yesterday's folk healers, people who grew up on the farm in the country.People who grew up to become some of the 21st century's most brilliant whole food researchers, research that is being validated by whole food Physicians of the highest Medical Credentials (truth needs no witness, but for one, I'm glad they are showing others the way).

The notion that whole foods can get you healthy and keep you healthy is as old as the hills, and the FDR' leaves no doubt that there is a fresh flowering of knowledge on those hills. The FDR' can assist you through recovery from many common disorders including acid reflux, acne, AIDS, age-related macular degeneration, ageing, arthritis, atherosclerosis, cancer, cataracts, elevated cholesterol, colds, constipation, diabetes, diarrhoea, poor digestion, diverticulitis disease, headaches, heart disease, herpes simplex, haemorrhoids, hypertension, immune deficiency, infection, infertility, insomnia, mental slowness, menopause, motion sickness, obesity, osteoporosis, respiratory ailments, skin disease, stroke, ulcers, varicose veins and more...

HASH(0x99b5c9cc) out of 5 stars Interesting but overpriced 17 May 2008
By MK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Don Tolman's Farmacist Desk Reference (FDR) is, in some ways, a fascinating book. It incorporates nutrition, history and conspiracy theories in a sometimes bizarre but usually interesting way.

If you're looking for a book on nutritional values of food, there are much cheaper alternatives than the FDR. Although the book does contain some very good nutritional information about almost any fruit, vegetable, nut, grain and seed you can think of, it's simply not worth buying for that information alone.

Another major failing of the book is that clearly no editor or proof reader has been within a hundred miles of it. Misspellings, typos and grammar errors abound and unfortunately these often confuse the meaning of the text. The author also uses different coloured writing and fonts throughout the book, which although may fit in with his various theories, simply make the book hard to read.

A few other items ring alarm bells. For example, there is reference to a Australian man who, Don tells us, is regarded as a 'national treasure' in Australia: I'm Australian & I've never heard of the guy. And some of the photos in the book are, I'm sure, taken from some 1950s horror movie.

Don's theories have some sound basis to them. A lot of what he says is common sense. But he also engages in some scaremongering.

Nevertheless, he's clearly a passionate man and the bulk of his message - eat healthily, exercise, avoid toxic relationships etc - is good stuff. I just think, for what it is, the FDR is way overpriced and needs a professional edit, both to fix up the mistakes and to present the information in a more user-friendly way (there's no index and it can be difficult to find information). At $150, if you're looking for nutritional information, can handle bad spelling, grammar and typos and have a soft spot for conspiracy theories and polemic, then go for it.

HASH(0x99cb162c) out of 5 stars Brilliant information with passion 26 July 2007
By Mark Twain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This reference guide is more than what you may think. It is a guide to understanding health and the current climate in the world as to why we are getting sicker and sicker. The solution; whole foods as our medicine.
I highly recomend this book to help guide you through the misinformation and propoganda put out there by the Pharmaceuticals industry and other corporate bodies who are not intersested in our health but more intersted in massive profits!
Don Tolman presents some amazing wisdom with passion and enthusiasm.
There is also some alarming information presented that you must understand not only for your sake but for the sake of all of our children and future generations.
A great investment.

HASH(0x99cb1530) out of 5 stars The Gift of Life... 10 April 2009
By Enriched - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
There are not words to adequately describe the wisdom and genuine concern for humanity that Don Tolman has. Don has empowered me and my family with the knowledge we needed to make healthy choices. More importantly, we are incredibly thankful for the time dedicated to educating my sister on living the principles of self-care at a time when traditional medicine gave her only 90 days to live with a very aggressive cancer. That was 9 months ago. Thanks to Don Tolman and the FDR she's recovering with no surgery, no chemo, and has resumed most of her normal activities. The FDR is priceless! Thanks Don!!

HASH(0x99cb28e0) out of 5 stars Easily the most comprehensive books on understanding your health 19 Dec. 2008
By Good Ideas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This 2 book set is the ultimate. I have studied the human body and health for a few years now and this book is filled with priceless nuggets of information that communicated my breadth of studies in a few hundred pages. These books are a man's life-long quest for "truth" through nature. It's not only his insights into health that are astounding, but his overall collection of knowledge that he sets forth through this reference set.

I had the pleasure of meeting this man about 16 years ago when i was a child and there was always this questions in my head of what Don was doing. So, after a web search I found his School that he has founded and this book.

It is one of the most wonderful treasure in my book collection (Next to - Walter Russell, The Universal One / John Taylor Gatto, The Underground History of American Education). The price is far beneath the value of a lifetime's worth of knowledge.

HASH(0x99cb25bc) out of 5 stars The only good health book 29 Jan. 2011
By Phil M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have been researching thoroughly the metaphysical, mathematical, ancient and scientific, conspiracy of health for a few years. I find most books isolate one of those things and neglect the others. This is the first book that understands that they all belong as one. I have applied the knowledge in Don Tolman's encyclopedia for over 2 years now, and I have never been sick since. I am undergoing the "living house work" that he describes. This book really is about how to achieve immortality in the end, but for those who are mundane, you can use it for standard good health practice.

This book lifts the veil of mystery on disease and shows us that nature has had the answer all the time, and it is not our enemy, yet certain groups would make you believe it certainly is our enemy. Nature is complex, so that we do not have to be.

We live in a scientific dictatorship where people won't believe anything unless it's explained to them in a broken down compartmentalized mundane way that eliminates any sort of fantastic or spiritual meaning. Do we really believe that we are just bags of meat walking around for no reason? There is no coincidence. Macrocosm Microcosm as above so below.

It covers the conspiracy and almost goes into the New World Order.

Don Tolman, if you are reading this please contact me, I would love to meet you someday.
