Overview

Natural Alternatives to Over-the-Counter (OTC) and Prescription Drugs by Michael & N D Murray, Michael T. Murray

Is there really a safer, more effective natural alternative to most prescription and over-the-counter medicines?The answer is yes. In this groundbreaking book, Michael T. Murray provides specific natural alternatives to some of the drugs most used by Americans, including Tagamet, Prednisone, Seldane, and Zantac, as well as alternatives to over-the-counter drugs used to treat acne, high cholesterol, hay fever, heartburn, insomnia, and many other common ailments.

Naturopathic physician Michael T. Murray discusses the effectiveness, and the unwanted side effects, of many of the drugs used today. He then shows how these drugs can be replaced with less expensive natural remedies whose medicinal benefits have been proven in clinical studies. Murray discusses dozens of herbal remedies, vitamins and minerals, extracts, and ointments, and shows how each can be used to bring relief from specific ailments. With easy-to-understand charts, graphs, and tables throughout, the book offers detailed, practical information that will help readers live a fuller, healthier life — free from pharmaceutical medicines.

As Dr. Alan R. Gaby writes in his Foreword: "Because of the efforts of Dr. Murray and others, the medical profession is slowly becoming aware that there are legitimate alternatives to drugs and surgery. As the research and data supporting natural medicine continue to increase, and as the limitations and dangers of conventional medicine become more widely appreciated, natural medicine will emerge as the only reasonable alternative."

This book, among many others, has helped me realize that my true calling is to become an N.D. There was a major crisis in my family and this book helped to point us in the right direction. It is, in my opinion, a 'life-saver'.
