About the Author
Long before natural foods and herbal formulas became a "chic" widely accepted method for healing, Linda Page was sharing her extensive knowledge with those who dared to listen. Through what some would call an accident of fate, but she calls a blessing, she was compelled to research alternative avenues of healing. Sequestered in a hospital with a life-threatening illness, watching her 5-foot frame wither to 69 pounds, her hair drop out, and her skin peel off, doctors told her thay had no cure. With only a cursory knowledge of herbs, she began a frantic research process of testing herbal formulas and healing food combinations on herself.She read voraciously about herbal healing. Good friends shopped for herbs and she began to formulate the many compounds which would eventually save her life, revitalize her health and restore beautiful new hair and skin. It was that incident that led her to seek her degrees in Naturopathy and Nutrition at Clayton College of Natural Health in Birmingham, Alabama.
A prolific author and educator, Dr. Page has sold over a million books including "Healthy Healing", "Cooking For Healthy Healing", "How To Be Your Own Herbal Pharmacist", "Party Lights", "Detoxification" and a popular series of library books which address specific healing therapies for topics like menopause, male and female energy, stress and energy, colds and flu and cancer.
Dr. Page is an Adjunct Professor at Clayton College of Natural Health. She has appeared weekly on a CBS television station with a natural healing report; she is a principle speaker at national health symposiums and conventions; she is featured regularly in national magazines; she appears on hundreds of radio and television programs. She has just released a television program to PBS stations called "The World of Healthy Healing - Unleashing The Healing Power Of Herbs" a one-hour educational program that is entertaining and full of useful information about herbal healing.
Dr. Page delights in having come full circle: "I feel I am living my dream. I am so grateful that knowledge of healing through herbal formulas and good foods is becoming so widespread. I see it as an opportunity for people to seize the power to heal themselves. Knowledge is power. Whether one chooses conventional medicine, alternative healing avenues, or combines them both in a complementary process, the real prescription for healing is knowledge."

Poor fella that rated this book 1 star...you must be a medical doc or else you just haven't seen the "proof" that the Journal of American Medical Association didn't go out of its way to provide on itself (JAMA Vol. 284 No. 4 July 28, 2000).
Accidental deaths, 250,000; unnecessary surgeries, 12,000; medication errors in hosp, 7,000; other in hosp errors, 20,000; nosocomial infections in hosp, 80,000; adverse effects of meds, 106,000. These numbers they indicated were probably LOW!!
Now, that makes me thankful I have taken responsibility for my health and not handed it over to the medical community as we know it today! I haven't taken an antibiotic in about 15 years, and I get more strength each year as I learn more about wellness and maintaining a healthy immune response system.
Looking forward to your 12th edition, Linda! I'll be waiting and watching, and I thank you for introducing me to a much more healthful lifestyle!
I don't believe Rector-Page really understands the subject to the depth I require. So I'm certainly not going to take her word. Her "PhD" is from a "University" outside the normal accredation circles. Maybe some of the things in this book could be helpful, but many of the more main-line, healthy living or medicine reference books have some natural healing information in them that are from more trustworthy sources.
Get a second opinion before you try anything in this book. Better yet, chuck it and start over.
Linda's wise advice has seen me through asthma attacks, ear infections and a nasty bout of depression. She's even helped my husband with his notorious tummy aches.
The ailments are listed alphabetically, so they're easy to find even when you're not thinking straight (like when you have the flu). Her treatment suggestions are incredibly thorough and include, herbs, vitamins and lifestyle suggestions.
Though it centers on treating specific ailments, "Healthy Healing" isn't just for when you're under the weather. It's filled with great information (including supplement and dietary protocol) to make sure you stay in top form.
This book is WELL worth the price. It's the only "medical" reference you will need in your home. Linda Page explains the causes of ills and provides you with natural remedies. She gives you options from a wide array of approaches including herbal, body work, and nutrition. You have several options so you can pick one that fits YOU best, as opposed to a one size fits all approach.
There are also sections on detoxing and rejuvenation. As well as reference for overall usefulness of various herbs and natural products in everyday use. I knew a lot about natural remedies before, but have learned so much more from this book.
You'll see that we have all we need to heal ourselves.
