Product description

From the Inside Flap

Dr. James F. Balch's book Prescription for Nutritional Healing: A-to-Z Guide to Supplements established him as one of the most trusted authorities in the fields of alternative and homeopathic medicine. Now, in a groundbreaking new volume that may well revolutionize the way Americans think about their health, his potentially life-saving wisdom is more accessible than ever before.
In 10 Natural Remedies That Can Save Your Life, Dr. Balch empowers readers to take action to protect their own health. He provides them with a better understanding of the healthy body and suggests natural remedies for medical problems, including:
Barley grass, one of the richest sources of nutrients on earth, which has been shown in laboratory studies to prevent and successfully treat both breast and prostate cancer.
Full-spectrum light and a change of habit, which in some cases can cure depression just as well as a drug.
Dietary supplements. People need adequate levels of vitamins C and E to defend against harmful agents.
The Three G's--garlic, ginseng, and ginkgo--which have well-known beneficial properties. Dr. Balch shows readers how to achieve the best results.
Using plainspoken common sense and anecdotal examples featuring his own patients, Dr. Balch demystifies the language of health, providing important and readily available remedies that can literally save lives.

With plainspoken common sense and examples from the case histories of Dr. Balch's own patients, TEN NATURAL REMEDIES THAT CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE reveals the simple, proven remedies that really can save your life--naturally. -->

Format: Hardcover
For anyone who is tired of having medical information doled out by a resistant medical hierarchy, here is some straightforward information to get you on the path to wellness. To reduce this book to a commentary about "grass clippings" (wheat barley grass), as a previous reviewer did, is a real injustice. Dr. Balch mentions the truly cutting edge information about numerous therapies unknown to most of us,including oxygen healing therapies like ozone treatments as one of the "10 Natural Remedies That Can Save Your Life."
Very quietly, even conventional MD's are using hyperbaric oxygen chambers and other oxygen-related treatments to treat patients with the so-called "flesh eating bacteria." Why? Because ozone and many other oxygen therapies are the ONLY treatments known to "kill the bugs, not the body." In other words, where antibiotics fail to destroy these "killer bugs," and severely damage the immune system, ozone re-invigorates the body by giving oxygen on the cellular level. Don't take my word for it; do a search some time on PubMed or some other medical search engine and see what you come up with!
Medical quackery? HA! Within the next decade, the Mayo Clinic and the rest of the shrines we have built to the bloated medical bureacracy will ALL be using innovative natural cures like the ones Dr. Balch recommends in this very readable book.
His first book, "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" has sold in excess of 4 million copies. "10 Natural Remedies That Can Save Your Life," especially at the amazingly low Amazon.com price is a steal.
This is a great book, especially for those not familiar with the world of natural remedies.

If you are like me, your health needs improvement. Well, this is the book for you. Starting with Dr. Balch's home remedy of ground lawn clippings to his pine mulch enemas, you'll find what you need here to get your body back on nature's track. Dr. Balch does touch upon the mind-body relationship, but a more detailed treatment is found elsewhere, like Thomas Nagel's The View From Nowhere (Nagel discusses a natural pasta salad that fully clarifies the mind-body link). Still, Dr. Balch's assertion that subjective, conscious beings living in an impersonal, objective universe can improve the mind-body connection by rejecting computer functionalism and eating toasted acorns seems rather controversial. But he hits the nail on the head when he talks about natural hormone therapy, particularly his thoughts on "running hormones" (a concept first raised by Macgruder in 1976 but ignored until Martha Stewart resurrected the idea in her new handbook of hors d'oeuvres). Does all this amount to medical quackery? Plainly, yes. But I wouldn't dismiss it offhand. We are living in a vibrant economy in the U. S. these days so there is money to burn. Why not waste it on this? At least you'll finally have the answer to a question that has plagued modern Americans: do I leave lawn clippings on the lawn after mowing or do I bag them and eat them as a salad?
Recommended for the health conscious individual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book! 14 Nov. 2012
By Lisa Henderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I use this book to determine what my body needs. It's a starting point to further discuss supplements with a nutritionist or health store. I first found this book at the library when I was trying to come off serious medication doctors prescribed for fibromyalgia. I successfully used this book to achieve that goal. I purchased this book because I'm starting to slip back after I stopped a lot of the supplements over the years. Highly recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars An Extreme DISAPPOINTMENT 14 Sept. 2012
By Cidesco Diplomat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am myself a healthcare professional so I was expecting some revelations which this book promised but did NOT deliver. I'm sorry to be harsh but why oh why do we equate a medical degree with any real breakthroughs in Natural Health. Is it the MD behind the name? I myself fell for it even though I have long ago figured out that it was the medical community that poo-pooed vitamins and dragged their collective feet kicking and screaming "foul" while trying to dismiss the effects or destroy those who believed in them for years in favor of dangerous drugs instead.
Now here's this doctor with his less than brilliant contribution only the following advice, water, air, light, hormones and a chapter entitled Garlic, ginseng and ginkgo biloba; three mainstays which everyone knows if they've been alive and read anything in the last 8 years. Honestly, I don't know why this man wrote this book except to re-cap age old advice we all know and if not, should be able to gather from common sense. No breakthroughs here and a whole lot of real breakthroughs left out; where for example is the chapter on DMSO? I don't get it.
