Review: Alternative Medicine: The Definitive Guide

Alternative Medicine: The Definitive Guide (Second Edition), this book has got to be one of the most comprehensive books ever written about alternative medicine. This book is packed with tons of useful information. The way the information is presented in an unbiased manner, makes this book the pick of all.

This book deals with information which can be hard to acquire. The contemporary medical establishment is well entrenched in its ways, but we all “know” there are other therapies and cures out there, but where do we find out about them? This book is the answer!

Alternative Medicine - The Definitive GuideIt provides a valuable starting point at which to begin your search for information on how to cure yourself or a loved one. The best thing about the book is the attention to details. For instance if you go to page 716, under the title of ” HEART DISEASE ” third paragraph which starts off with ” interest in Vitamin B6 deficiency. This was a study by Dr. Kilmer S. McCully, M.D. Professor of Pathology at Harvard Medical School in reference to Heart disease and lowering the HOMOCYSTEINE Levels, which are free radical generators capable of oxidizing cholesterol, one of the major contributing factors in heart disease. The (AMA) American Medical Association back then and until recently said he was wrong in his theory. But, most recently on the television show 20/20 with Barbara Walters, the AMA said they were wrong and that Dr. McCully was right back in 1969 with his studies. Which I believe shows just a fraction of the importance of reading from this invaluable book of Knowledge.

It tells a lot of valuable information about various vitamins and minerals and how they work to keep our bodies in perfect form. It gives important detail about what doses of each supplement we need to take. I also tell us about how the supplements interact with each other.

This book goes into great detail to tell us about our various organs and other body parts and how they work. It tells about how to handle diseases when we contract it. It reassures us that we don’t need to run to the doctor every time we get sick.
