Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The plethora and popularity of books on alternative medicine and nutrition continue. Renders became a doctor of naturopathy (licensed in 11 states) after a medical doctor diagnosed her with hypertension and told her that she would have to take medication for the rest of her life. Although the title describes the book as A-to-Z, there are five chapters (additives, nutrients, dietary sources, supplements, and herbs) that each include alphabetical entries. The entries, most of which are a paragraph in length, define terms and discuss the use of the nutrient or supplement in alternative medicine or nutrition. Renders is careful to warn of possible side effects or complications. This is recommended for circulating collections that need additional alternative health books, but for a comprehensive reference source, the Encyclopedia of Nutrition and Good Health (Facts on File, 1997) is superior.--Christine E. Bulson, SUNY at Oneonta Lib.
