This is an phenomenal piece of work that Murray and Pizzorno have put together! From this book, it is easy to see they are definitely progressive, cutting-edge health pioneers. Whether you are a beginner or an expert in the field of natural medicine or nutrition, you will find this book very insightful!

They also elaborate on the functions and uses of all supplements they recommend for certain conditions. Their approach is entirely holistic so they include exercise and mind-body recommendations specific to diseases. This is an extremely valuable source of natural medical information and I highly recommend this book to everyone!
I have learned more from this book about the subject of Osteoporous than any other book or article I have purchased. I was surprised to find out that not all calcium is 'user friendly'; much of it contains lead as a result of the milling process. And not all calcium is easily absorbed. This book gives information about an assortment of health problems with possible solutions. I purchased the first copy from an health food store, and the book was worn when I bought it (most likely from people using it as a reference). One thing is for sure, you will not be disappointed, Encyclopedia of Natural Medician is a wealth of information.
