About the Author

Dr. Llaila Afrika is a nutrition consultant, massge therapist, historian, writer and a Doctor of Naturopathy. He has studied in Africa, Europe and America. Llaila believes that each of his clients (from the children to the elderly) have been among his teachers and is fully indebted to them all. He contends that good health does not belong exclusively to any culture or race, but is a human right and a product of nature. Llaila's background includes serving in the Medical Core in the military and several years experience as a psychotherapist. He has used herbal and other holistic treatments exclusively since the early 1970's.

This is addressed to all of the reviewers who didnt give this a 5 star.
I'm not going to bash or anything. Because that is not the type of person that i represent myself as.
However i must express certain truth rather if its liked or not.
Afterall,for some to give Dr Afrika bad reviews and try to criticize what he knows "which is far beyond any of us". Due to somes very limited perception in which they've of him
I'd then be foolish to waist precious energy correcting the misguided ignorant comments!
The truth is this: What we currently hold to have always been normal throughout current generations. Well after a little in depth research is employed.It becomes apparent then that we're interpreting things from a totally unhealthy abnormal perspective now.

Particular authors such as "Queen Afua" is addressing conditions and how to balance and treat them accordingly to our current conditions and circumstances.
Her information on "Menstruation" should already be understood that she is purely addressing the here and now perspective on things.
On the other hand: Dr.Afrika is addressing the "historical causes" in which took place throughout time. Which made the current condition manifest.
After "hollistically" reading "both authors" then putting them in their deserving perspectives.
A people then does not see any contradiction nor conflict in subject matter within the two of their writings whatsoever.

Its about "knowing" how to "discern" the important things spoken about in the past, and how those things've affected our way of living in the present. Example:When a family has a "Hereditary condition" in which started way back in their past. It can "Potentially" affect all current family offspring.

African Holistic Health is a must have for Any home. The information contained in this book is like having a PDR, Physicians Desk Reference, Back To Eden, and a Medical Encyclopedia. The Bonus is: African Holistic Health includes information unknown and unused in the medical community; it fills in significant gaps.

I recommend this book for any person who in interested in improving and maintaining health.

Format: Paperback
Best Medical Reference I have EVER seen or owned that caters to the genetic makeup and needs of Afrikan descendants. Period. I recommend it to all members of the Afrikan Diaspora who are trying to obtain knowledge of self and use natural medicines and methods that have in turn been used successfully for TENS OF THOUSANDS of years across the world.

Format: Paperback
This book lead me in the right direction towards enlightenment. It is ideal for the black aspirant of complete health (wholistic), while good for people of all races. It covers a wide variety of material concerning holistic health, human existance, psychology, behaviour, and also differnces between races. One might read this book and think that L.Afrika is racist, but the concept of racism is an illusion of the mind imposed unto us by our own ignorance of Self, and backed by a corrupt system of injustice.

Re. the previous reviewer:

1-2 cups of salt??????? Are you insane??? That had to have been a miss-print. For you to judge the book off of that miss-information shows your complete lack of judgement and common sense.

Once you purchase the African Holistic Health Book you would never have a need to purchase another Health book. The book is very educational and the remedies work! I thank the Universe for Llaila O. Afrika for sharing this precious information and knowledge.

African Holistic Health

In his book Dr. Llaila O. Afrika provides information for people of African descent concerning our health and how to better understand and be able to treat the diseases that plague us as Black People. My investment in the book was so that I could learn about alternative remedies that are proven and are geared to my genetics. It is quite obvious from the medications that are advertised in the different media that pharmaceuticals are not our best friend. The side effects alone is enough to change one's mind and decide to take one's chances with the disease that you could live longer and without all those harmful consequences brought about by those poisonous substances. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to take control of his/her health. Don't leave it up to the doctors they are only humans and don't know everything, remember they are called "Health Practitioners." Think about it practicing as they go along. I don't have anything against them personally. Sure if you are not feeling well by all means go find out what the problem is then, research alternative remedies before taking any pharmaceuticals. Check out the side effects and decide if it is right for you personally.

I borrowed this book from a friend. Read it thoroughly. Some of the information is valid (vitamins to take, foods to eat or avoid). Other opinions are old world wive's tales i,e., menstruation is not natural. OK, I can ignore the stupid stuff (although there shouldn't be stupid stuff in a book for Black people who already suffer as medical guinea pigs). What I found and EXPERIENCED as very dangerous is one recipe in particular - on page 72 (of the revised and expanded 7th edition) under the heading "Anthelmentic Enemas (gets rid of worms)." It calls for 1-2 CUPS of salt mixed with lemon or lime juice (no amt given), with warm water (no amt given). I used 1 cup of salt with a 1/4 cup of lemon juice in a hot water bottle of warm water. I administered the enema and within 15 minutes my body went into shock. Severe pain in legs and feet, lower back and stomach with vomiting and bleeding from the rectum. I drove myself to the emergency room. I was immediately admitted. A colonoscoopy revealed that the salt and lemon juice mixture had caused perforations in my colon! Had the perforations penetrated the outer wall of my colon I could have died from peritonitis (they told me). Here I am in the hospital 3 days later and the bleeding is still an issue. I am on a bland diet awaiting a follow-up colonoscopy (in 30 days) to see if the damage has healed or left scarring. My "new" gasteroenterologist said, "Throw that @#%*@*! book away!" I will give it back to the party who loaned it to me with red X's across the enema recipes whether they like it or not. This book has BAD INFORMATION. And in my opinion, if you only crash your car once a month, you still aren't considered a good driver on the other 29 days!
