I've been following the advice in Dr Murray's books for years and I trust him more than any other source. His recommendations are based on what has been proven to work and he adds lots of common sense. This book, along with his Encyclopedia, are all that you need to seperate the truth from the hype.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The popular Pill Book Guide supplemental sibling is compiled by one of America's leading authorities on natural medicine, Dr. Michael Murray. The 1074 page book is an up-to-date guide on the effectiveness and safety of herbs, vitamins and other natural products. The book is easily laid out in clear language with information of what each product is for, how it works, with safety and effectiveness ratings, side effects, drug and food interactions, dosages, cautions and warnings.

The purpose of this book is to help the reader who use nautral products make wise choices on natural supplements and to save one's health. It also includes Dr. Murray's recommendations for the prevention and treatment of common conditions from acne and congestive heart failure to diabetes and stress. The book answers some questions, on the subject what is all hype and what is science? What do we really know about natural remedies?

It answers questions like, can symptoms of menopause be relieved without hormone replacement therapy? Black Cohosh (Remifemin) performed better than hormones and had an A (excellent) rating for safety. What is a safer way of halting macular degeneration over Lasik sugery and save ones' night vision? Bilberry has proven in historical cases to stop the formation of cataracts and improves night vision. During World War II the British Royal Air Force gave it to their pilots who had to fly night missions! To get relief from insomnia without dangerous prescription drugs take your pick from Valerian (rated A for effectiveness), Melatonin (rated B+) or 5-HTP (rated B+). One concern, there were some herbs that were omitted from the book I'd like to have seen listed, e.g. Raspberry Leaves. But if you would consider research and natural remedies change on the market from time-to-time. I'm sure in the future that more will be added. Other than that I definitely believe this to be the best natural reference book out on the market at this time.

This book is highly informative of popular, and lesser known herbs. It provides helpful, and relevant information about natural medicines. Dr. Murray refers to real-life scientific studies to proof the effectiveness of natural medicines.
The book is more encyclopaedic, his opinion is not noted at all.
This is excellent, since there are currently far too many auteurs who simple give their 'belief' or 'feeling' about herbs. The book is fairly thorough, up-to-date, and very well organized.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn the facts about natural medicines, or even the expert who needs a reference source at times.

I read many book and it's the best, for the very good information and for the marvelous price. For all pearson (specialist or not) have a interest for natural medicine.
C'est le meilleur choix parmi plusieur que j'ai lu. Autant par son information pertinente mais aussi pour le prix ridiculement bas. Personne ne doit se passer de ce fantastique guide, autant les professionels de la santé ainsi que toutes personnes ayant un intérêt à une solution naturel sans rejeter la médecine moderne.

The Pill Book Guide to Natural Medicines March 17 2006
By M. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was informative. The set up is a bit busy. It would be easier to find specific information if there were the use of bold type or all captial letters and boxes.
