Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Whitaker is the founder of the Wellness Institute in Newport Beach, California, and the publisher of two health newsletters. His new book prescribes a blueprint for living based on sound health principles, with some elements of alternative therapies (e.g., chelation therapy) thrown in. He is not alone in favoring a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet, vitamin and mineral supplementation, regular exercise, relaxation techniques, the use of herbs, and a reduction in the use of drugs. But Whitaker presents this program in a straightforward, easy-to-understand style and includes an extensive bibliography in the first two parts of his book. In Part 3 he takes common health conditions and gives the "Whitaker Prescription" for them, which usually incorporates the techniques he advocates, along with specific nutritional suggestions. Similar information and advice can be found in Michael Murray's Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine (LJ 5/1/91) and Andrew Weil's Natural Health Natural Medicine (LJ 5/1/90). However, in view of consumer demand for health-related books that emphasize lifestyle, this guide is recommended to public libraries for its practicality and clarity.

great non-traditional remedies that have worked for my family and I. I would categorize the book as being in between naturopathy and traditional medicine. This book will make you question (but not distrust) the medical society and its ingrained, tunnel visioned methods. An overall long term health and maintenance guide. Categorized by ailments makes for easy reference. I highly recommend this book for everyone.

Format: Paperback
The view of orthodox medicine is that one is well if one is not overtly sick. However, in truth, most Americans who are not overtly sick are not really healthy -- they're just not overtly sick for the time being. Over the past few decades a new paradigm has developed whose goal is the prevention of disease and the achievement of true health, as well the extension of lifespan with minimal symptoms of aging. This new paradigm -- which has been shown conclusively to work -- is called "alternative" or "holistic" medicine. Dr. Julian Whitaker is one of the leading experts of this new paradigm of health. In this book he explains in simple terms how you can get and stay healthy and live a long healthy life by (1) eating a genuinely healthy diet (not the government's overly simplistic food pyramid), and taking certain nutritional supplements, (2) getting moderate (but regular) excercise, and (3) weaning one's self from most pharmaceutical drugs (most of which has harmful side effects) which truly healthy people rarely need. Sadly, Dr. Whitaker's prescription for health has not yet won over most othodox physicians but it is supported by thousands of scientific studies and has been experienced by hundreds of thousands of people who have had the courage to try it. I can't recommend this book too highly.

Book was well written & some of the supplements he advised using made sense to take, but he also appeared to recommend ephedra for weight loss/ weight management & that advice is currently way out of date.

(This is the book before Natural Cures)

I like this book because Dr. Julian Whitaker explains everything you need to be healthy. Most other books address on some of the problems and even then give you generalies on what to do. Dr. Whitaker give you the specifics for everything from what should be in you Multi Suppliment to what specific product with help you with high blood pressure. This the first on only book on natural healing.

All good health books should tell you to involve you health care provider on all descion regarding you your health weather it be drugs, surgeries, or natural paths. This is great advice and Dr. Whitaker is no different, giving you four warnis to check with you doctor and decuss thing with them before you get off you medication or start his program. You have to respect that. Your health is a partnership between doctor and patient.

Dr. Whitaker is a medical doctor who for years wondered why the path the most people took to health (drugs and surgery) we not getting patients well, they seemed to be better. This idea lead the good Doctor to leard and develop natural plans for for getting healthy and staying that way. He want long term result, not short term.

Understanding this, Dr Whitaker is on the for front of this movement toward health.

The book is separated into three separate parts.

Part 1 Real Healthcare Reform- theis discribes the problem with our healthcare system in the US (with our the parania) giving its problems, pitfall, and failings.

Good tips, natural ideas on healing. A little outdated, since some of the recommendations may have changed by now. thanks.

Natural healing is the way to go. We put far too many chemicals into our bodies that aren't supposed to be there. This practical guide is helpful to all people.

I was delighted to find this is paper back to send to my Sister-in-Law
after reading an older copy I have.

I am sure she will be most surprised to receive an 'after Christmas gift'
with such healing contents.

With gratitude,
