This is a comprehensive tome with a huge amount of information. It is being helpful to me in aiding me to make choices of food which will be useful for arthritis and cancer, but it is a time-consuming task, because the book is so very thorough and detailed.

I would reccommend this to everyone it has changed my life and health.
2 things to note it does not cover how birth control or prescription drugs lower certain vitamins in the body and neither does it cover very basic herbs such as mint etc.

However the book is huge, the largest book i own! It really helps you to find what your defficent in, it also covers really simple sicknesses such as leg cramps or heartburn etc.

A unique book for anyone looking for answers not found in conventional medicine. There isn't a disease you will not find in it-along with an long list of vitamins, minerals and nutrients that will help you fight it. It's a reference book really, but it will complement your doctor's advice on every possible health issue you might have. Just wonderful!

Format: Paperback
With over five million copies sold, this book is one of the most read texts on nutritional health. I say "text" because it measures in at a good inch and three-quarters thick. Written by a certified nutritionist and a bona-fide MD, it is neatly divided up into three parts.

Part I, a quarter-inch thick discusses the basic principles of health and nutrition. This section lists and explains the various kinds of nutrients and food supplements.

Part II, by far the biggest section of the book measuring in at an inch and a quarter, provides the reader with an A-Z listing of many common disorders (such as backache or diabetes) and what you can do about them from a nutritional point of view.

The book ends with Part III, the last quarter-inch of the book, which is devoted to traditional therapies and conventional treatments that can be used along with a nutritional support. Here you'll find info on treatments such as chiropractic, massage therapy, color therapy, and so on.

I have to say, I was pretty impressed with the amount of info contained in this book and I can definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good nutritional reference book to put on their shelf when questions arise. Additionally, is also might give readers ideas of other types of therapies they could try for various medical problems. Other health titles I can recommend also include The 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution for people who have trouble with chronic plantar fasciitis.

Fantastic book for anyone who is interested in their health and improving their own health with more natural methods than conventional medicine dictates.
i first came across an earlier edition of this book in the States after suffering lead poisoning. I had trawled book shops and the internet for more detailed information about this, but all related to children rather than adults. I purchased the book and returned to the UK and used it as a bible for many other 'issues' relating to my own and others' health matters. I have since purchased this updated edition which to be honest is almost the same as my other edition but never mind my old one is now well thumbed.
I also use 'Timeless Secrets of Health & Rejuvenation' by Andrea Moritz......cant recommend this book enough either.....happy reading and good health to you all.

This book has been a fantastic reference book, full of helpful information. I would not like to have done the last few modules of my Nutrition Course without it!

I bought this book after I saw one that was given to a friend for her birthday. However, Amazon were not selling at such a competitive price and I ordered from a Supplier in Canada with a little anxiety. I needn't have worried the book was with me within a week. I think Amazon is now selling direct so even better if you want quicker. Lots of tips on the types of herbs and things that you should use for natural healing.
