International Book Award WINNER-Alternative Health!
"Prescriptions from Paradise is chock full of practical information that everyone needs to know in order to become or stay healthy." --Christiane Northrup, MD, Ob/gyn physician and author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

While many alternative medical practitioners prescribe a "one-size-fits-all" regimen for health maintenance, Dr. Carlos Viana advocates biocompatible medicine--literally medicine that is compatible with one's own biology--as the most effective way to achieve optimum health. Biocompatible medicine's tailored approach helps reverse the harmful influences of environmental toxins, unmanaged stress, and chronic inflammation-- which can lead to cancer and premature aging-- by promoting the body's own natural healing processes.

Dr. Viana, aka 'The Barefoot Doctor of Aruba,' is founder of the Viana Healing Center in Aruba, and Prescriptions from Paradise: An A--to--Z Compendium draws on first-hand knowledge gained from using this common-sense approach to defeat disease. The book's alphabetical format lists common medical conditions and their biocompatible treatment and prevention protocols. Simple enough for a layperson to use, Prescriptions from Paradise is yet extensive and detailed enough for practitioners.

Whether you've lost your hair, your libido, or your ability to sleep through the night, Dr. Viana can probably recommend a treatment you haven't already tried. Best of all, he shows you how simple remedies can work alongside of, or instead of, pharmaceuticals. You may not be able to afford a week on a tropical island, but you cannot afford not to buy this book.

Readers interested in alternative healthcare will find Viana's advice fascinating and his viewpoint fresh". --Publishers Weekly Select

"Prescriptions from Paradise" is a strong pick for collections focusing on alternative medicine."
---Midwest Book Reviews

When a physician with as much practical Western and Oriental medicine experience as Dr. Viana takes the time to document his life's work, we would be foolish not to take advantage. Regardless if you are an adherent of Oriental or Western medicine, this book will make a valuable addition to your library. -- Steve Amoia, Freelance writer, Top Book Reviewer
