Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Natural health's number-one bestseller for more than twenty years, completely revised and updated.
With more than five million copies sold, "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" is the most trusted, comprehensive source on dietary supplements, vitamins, minerals, and herbs. A pioneer in the field of nutritional healing, Phyllis Balch passionately and meticulously researched and compiled this groundbreaking book. Now, a generation later, her 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. Today's well-stocked vitamin and natural-health stores can be confusing, and people need Balch's clear, concise, landmark guide.
To help them make sense of the mind-numbing array of choices that are available, readers of "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" will:
- learn the basics of good nutrition;
- find out how to balance vitamins and minerals so that the body can properly absorb both;
- determine how best to treat 250 problems-from abscesses to wrinkles-using herbs, nutrition, and supplements; and
- get the facts on other complementary therapies, like ayurveda, biofeedback, chiropractic care, and more. "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" is an essential resource for every health-minded consumer.

About the Author

Phyllis A. Balch, CNC, was a leading nutritional counselor for more than two decades. Convinced that nutrition was, in many cases, the answer to regaining and maintaining health, Ms. Balch testified before Congress on the efficacy of natural healing.

A friend of mine called me today to see how I was doing. She wasn't aware of the problem I have had with CANDIDA. She told me her daughter had had it in the past and had gotten rid of it. She told me about the book and they were at mynouse in 15 minutes with their old copy. She had used the instructions in the book.

I have been to several doctors in the last 19 years and they haven't been able to help me. Needless to say I am going to start on the instructions in the book!! I have also had panic attacks and irritable bowel syndrome in the past. I KNOW SOMEONE AND IT ACTULLY WORKS!!!!

God bless you if you have Candida. My skin is cooked above my eyes, arms, jaw and the left side above my breast the size of my hand. At one time I had a huge place on my hip like elephant skin.

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.
