In some 175,000 words, a most extraordinary team of "natural" doctors have combined their efforts to create a book that readers will use as the standard reference for natural, complementary, and alternative treatments and remedies.
This book is an expanded version of HealthNotes Online, a popular software program available in many natural health stores and pharmacies to help answer consumer questions. Unlike some highly popular works today, which tend to oversell benefits due to the authors' personal biases and enthusiasms, The Natural Pharmacy is a well-balanced and fully referenced work. It goes out of its way to give the full story about every nutrient or condition and includes rarely found information about contraindications and potential side effects.
The Natural Pharmacy is also designed for ease of use. It is organized into four categories -- health concerns, vitamins and minerals, herbal remedies, and homeopathic remedies -- making it easy for the reader to cross-reference all relevant information.
From acne to yeast infections, from alfalfa to yucca, The Natural Pharmacy is comprehensive. It covers an astounding amount of the latest information on every malady, herb, and nutrient. This is a book that will be recommended to patients by thousands of health practitioners throughout the world.
