Book review

This book is an essential resource for every health-minded consumer.

by Phyllis A. Balch, C.N.C.

This book is the most thoroughly revised and updated bible of natural health with cutting-edge findings in alternative and preventative therapies and a most trusted, comprehensive source on dietary supplements, vitamins, minerals and herbs.

The new fifth edition incorporates the most recent information on a variety of alternative healing and preventive therapies, and unveils new science on vitamins, supplements and herbs.

With an A-to-Z reference to illnesses, updates include: how omega-3 and exercise may help those suffering from Alzheimer’s; current information on the latest drug therapies for treating AIDs; what you need to know about H1N1 virus; nutritional information for combating prostate cancer; leading research on menopause and bioidentical hormones; and much, much more. In the 20 years since the first edition was released, the natural health movement has gone mainstream, and the quest for optimal nutrition is no longer relegated to specialty stores.

With almost 900 pages of comprehensive facts about all aspects of alternative ways to wellness, the new edition unites the best of age-old remedies with 21st century science.

Now, a generation later, Balch’s message has more relevance than ever: consume fresh foods, avoid processed foods and those high in saturated fat, and optimize your intake of essential nutrients with the right supplements. This book is an essential resource for every health-minded consumer.
