Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This is one of the best books on alternative medicine available. Murray and Pizzorno, both doctors of naturopathic medicine, are respectively a faculty member and president of Bastyr College of Seattle, a fully accredited school offering a doctorate in naturopathic medicine. Combining natural medicine with modern scientific knowledge, the authors explain the basic principles of health and then describe 62 problems ranging from cervical dysplasis to varicose veins, along with suggested therapies. These include lifestyle and dietary changes, botanical medicines, vitamins, exercise, and attention to psychological factors. What distinguishes this book is that there is always a clear discussion of the causes of a disease and extensive references, many from authoritative medical sources. The authors back up their suggestions by giving the rationale behind them. Librarians can feel comfortable in offering this book to their patrons.-- Natalie Kupferberg, Brooklyn Coll. Lib., New York
