With over 150,000 copies in print the revised and expanded edition is a wealth of holistic health care research and advice that sets the paradigm in African Global health. You will find in this recommended copy, that good health is a serious issue not to be taken litely. That being said you are going to be amazed at the types of ancient as well as recent remedies and solutions that are beyond the scope of our current alopathic medical profession. Listed is the usual suspects such as the types of herbals, vitamins, tissue salts, amino acids, glandulars, food, and homeopathic products to be use for various ailments. Also there are sections on the history of the wars that were fought over the spices (herbs) and the history of the medical industries, both African and European. But what sets this book apart from other health oriented books is the very old, not readily available information that is placed in its proper prospective, and can be combined with the "Overlooked Revolution" to propelled a current fledgeling health system into the future by a thousand years or more.There are so many physical as well as psychological differences between blacks and whites that one wonders why in this day and age we are all using the same treatments, see pages 302- 308. The use of Colors, Organ Clock and Cycles, Metals, Incense, Musical Notes, Acupuncture, Gems or Crystals, see pages 275-301 are all ancients sciences needed to complement a complete health wellness program.Finally, games such as chess, checkers, bowling, apparatices such as sliding boards, swings, see saws, were instruments used by the Afrikans themselves to development spiritual energy, diagnose illnesses, find remedies, and recharge chakras. And your Deck of Cards were used to treat diseases, and teach divinity, mathmatics, astrology, and astronomy. see pages xxxvii-xlii.This book is an essential part of what can be described as a complete wholistic journey to better health care.
