Prescription for Nutritional Healing, 4th Edition (Prescription for Nutritional Healing: A Practical A-To-Z Reference to Drug-Free Remedies) by Phyllis A Balch
Prescription for Nutritional Healing, 4th Edition (Prescription for Nutritional Healing: A Practical A-To-Z Reference to Drug-Free Remedies)

Comprehensive

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.
