Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In recent years, some evangelical Christians have abandoned their traditional suspicions of "alternative medicine" and begun to cautiously embrace the natural arts of holistic medicine, vitamin therapy and even yoga. This A to Z guide urges readers to "take advantage of all that God has provided" in the way of natural remedies such as herbs, vitamins, minerals and water. (Water is definitely the hero of this book. One section even recommends drinking an ounce for every pound of body weight a day during "detox" periods.) Unlike such books as "Alternative Medicine: The Christian Handbook" or "What Would Jesus Eat?" this one does not weave a Christian perspective throughout, but mentions it very briefly at the beginning and tacks on a Scripture verse. The how-to advice is similar to those other books, however, particularly regarding the need for a high-fiber, low-sugar diet. One especially helpful feature of the book is its quick-reference guide to ailments ranging from acne to zoonosis. (Yeah, we didn't know that one either. Basically, it means you got a disease from an animal.) (Jan.) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
