Natural Medicine Instructions for Patients has been created as a companion to the Textbook of Natural Medicine. It has been written to provide busy clinicians with easily duplicated templates of clearly written, authoritative information and instructions for patients who might suffer from 1 or more of the 76 most common diseases effectively treated with natural medicine.
