This book is precisely what the public needs to escape the clutches of the drug industry! The material is well-ordered, well-organized, and gives vital and very helpful information for those seeking advice. I feel this book will do very much to bring the "wholistic" approach out of the realm of "eye of newt, wing of bat" where "normal" people often place natural remedies. Jean Carper, you have given us a big measure of respectability with many and frequent cites to scientific studies which confirm the tremendous values contained in plain old food! Thanks SO MUCH!
In a very wise, old book it is written, " . . . and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations." Revelation 22:2.
The buyer will get many times the purchase price in return from reading and heeding the advice given. My copy is a treasured addition to my library.

I have bought about 20 copies of this book to help inform friends, in a simple way how to make small diet changes and improve health according to each person's issues...different chapters on what to eat, what to not eat if you have heart issues, or diabetes or high blood pressure or arthritis etc. I now eat a brazil nut every day for selenium and have made other small changes. It is a terrific bathroom book as you can read bits and pieces as you wish and all ages will benefit. I often go back to my copy as different health worries arise.
