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.

Format: Paperback
If you want to take control of your health, GET THIS BOOK! Especially if you have been disappointed with your Dr. This book is jam-packed with good stuff. Its divided into 3 parts. The first part is a basic overview on being healthy, and describes the different vitamins, minerals, herbs and other nutrients. Part two is the biggest part, and that is the various disorders. It starts out with a section on what your symptoms could be of. Each disorder has an explanation, what could be causing it, etc. Then the book lists what nutrients you should be taking, such as vitamins or amino acids or herbs. It also lists any treatments you should be doing, foods you should be eating or avoiding, or precautions. The final part talks about the various treatments, these include everything from massage(it explains the various kinds) to accupuncture to colour therapy.While the book won't replace doctors, its a good book to have for help with any minor complaints or as support during medical treatment for major illness. Its very very thorough, and has helped me out countless times.

Format: Paperback
This book was recommended to me by someone who at one point had been given 6 months to live. Using this book and other techniques she managed to make a full recovery. A relative of mine has a health opportunity right now, so I decided to buy this book, and follow her herbal recommendations.

I have been hearing some great stories about people seeing herbalists, and using herbs and other supplements in addition to regular medical treatment, going outside the normal level of resource to improve their health, and experiencing relief and cure from life threatening conditions.

Therefore, I highly recommend this book, as being jam packed with useful information which is easy to use. For example, burdock root is reputed to have anti tumor properties.

The further you get into book, the more valuable information you notice is contained in it.

I think you will find it very useful, and I hppe this was helpful.

Format: Paperback
If there is ever a book I refer to again and again when I am not feeling well or have some physical challenge, this is it. Prescription for Nutritional Healing is Western in its foundation, although it doesn't encourage typical synthetic Western pharmaceuticals. In various sections, the book explains how various vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, herbs and natural food supplements work, and which are best to take in combination. Balch reviews wholistic lifestyles & alternative treatments such as fasting, juicing, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, preparing for & recovering from surgery. The bulk of this virtual encyclopedia is focused on ailments and disorders - everything from Acne and Age Spots to Wrinkling of the Skin and Yeast Infections is described in detail. Symptoms are explained, as is other possible causes for the symptoms. Nutrients & herbal remedies are suggested to help put the individual back into a state of balance, and the nutrients are categorized into very important, important and helpful. Many helpful recommendations and considerations are added at the end.
Although Prescription for Nutritional Healing does not delve into detail about preventative care & healthy choices so that you don't get sick, it is a thorough reference book for when you do. It's many insightful suggestions have helped me & my loved ones through insomnia, colds, fevers, hypoglycemia, eye troubles, backaches and allergies. I've given a copy of the book to several family members & "in-laws" and they always value and appreciate it. Prescription for Nutritional Healing is a classic when it comes to educating ourselves about our well-being & taking responsibility for our good health.
