Overview

Natural health's number-one bestseller for more than twenty years, completely revised and updated.

With more than five million copies sold, Prescription for Nutritional Healing is the most trusted, comprehensive source on dietary supplements, vitamins, minerals, and herbs. A pioneer in the field of nutritional healing, Phyllis Balch passionately and meticulously researched and compiled this groundbreaking book. Now, a generation later, her message has more relevance than ever: consume fresh foods, avoid processed foods and those high in saturated fat, and optimize your intake of essential nutrients with the right supplements. Today's well-stocked vitamin and natural-health stores can be confusing, and people need Balch's clear, concise, landmark guide.

To help them make sense of the mind-numbing array of choices that are available, readers of Prescription for Nutritional Healing will:

- learn the basics of good nutrition;

- find out how to balance vitamins and minerals so that the body can properly absorb both;

- determine how best to treat 250 problems-from abscesses to wrinkles-using herbs, nutrition, and supplements; and

- get the facts on other complementary therapies, like ayurveda, biofeedback, chiropractic care, and more. Prescription for Nutritional Healing is an essential resource for every health-minded consumer.

About the Author: Phyllis A. Balch, CNC, was a leading nutritional counselor for more than two decades. Convinced that nutrition was, in many cases, the answer to regaining and maintaining health, Ms. Balch testified before Congress on the efficacy of natural healing.

Editorial Reviews

Prescription for Nutritional Healing has long been the most trusted guide to holistic health. The new and improved third edition includes expanded listings of drug-free cures for everything from allergies to arteriosclerosis, heartburn to hemophilia. But this classic reference for alternative medicine offers more than just a quick fix -- it also provides an in-depth look at the basic elements of health and covers new supplements like SAMe and little-known herbal remedies such as cat's claw.
Nearly bulging at 784 pages, the fourth edition of Prescription for Nutritional Healing is more than twice the size of its six-year-old predecessor. Not that earlier editions were paltry: With 7 million copies in print, this A-to-Z reference has already won a well-deserved reputation as America's No. 1 guide to natural health. Over the years, author Phyllis Balch's guidelines for optimal eating have been confirmed and reconfirmed by study and testimony. This edition identifies 250 problems, from abscesses to wrinkles, that can be treated using herbs, minerals, nutrition, vitamins, and other dietary supplements.
