The Encyclopaedia of Natural Medicine is the most comprehensive guide and reference to the use of natural measures in the maintenance of good health and the prevention and treatment of disease. It explains the principles of natural medicine and outlines their application through the safe and effective use of herbs, vitamins, minerals, diet and nutritional supplements, and covers an extensive range of health conditions, from asthma to depression, from psoriasis to candidasis, from diabetes to the common cold. Drawing on the centuries-old wisdom of the healing powers of nature, and supported with scientific investigation, the Encyclopaedia is the ultimate guide to a natural, healthy lifestyle.

Product Description:

Two of the foremost experts on naturopathic medicine offer a powerful guide to natural healing. While traditional Western medicine is successful in treating critical-care situations, it is woefully inadequate in the areas of chronic illness and disease prevention. In contrast, natural medicine focuses on disease prevention and encouragement of the body's inherent healing abilities.

Review:

Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine weighs three pounds and nine ounces, has 946 pages, and is as informative as it is hefty. The authors are naturopathic doctors--they focus on promoting health and treating disease with nontoxic, natural therapies. Naturopathic medicine follows these seven principles:

  1. Do no harm: use safe, effective, natural therapies.
  2. Nature has healing powers: the physician's job is to enhance the body's natural power to heal itself.
  3. Identify and treat the cause: find the cause, rather than just suppress the symptoms.
  4. Treat the whole person: administer to the patient's physical, mental/emotional, spiritual, and social sides.
  5. The physician is a teacher: educate and motivate patients to take more responsibility for their health.
  6. Prevention is the best cure: health-supporting life habits prevent disease.
  7. Establish health and wellness: increase the patient's positive physical and mental state.

This book shows you how to improve your health through a positive mental attitude, healthy lifestyle, health-promoting diet, and supplements, with plenty of practical tips. Learn disease prevention through enhancing key body systems. The bulk of the book details natural remedies for treating more than 70 ailments. Each includes symptoms, description, therapeutic considerations (with discussion of studies), and a treatment summary, including nutritional supplements and botanical (herbal) medicines. If you have a disease, this book will give you a valuable perspective on natural treatments. If you're well, it will give you many pointers for maintaining and enhancing your health. --Joan Price
