Amazon.com Review

For thousands of years, people have relied on the gifts of the earth: nutritious food, clean water, natural light, medicinal herbs--and an active lifestyle to stay healthy. Now the gifts of the earth have been compromised: we eat highly processed food, bathe in and drink polluted water, work by artificial lighting, and take pills when we're sick and depressed from living this way. Natural remedies can make a drastic positive change in your life, says James F. Balch, M.D., in 10 Natural Remedies That Can Save Your Life. Balch, who is also the author of the bestselling Prescription for Nutritional Healing, presents 10 remedies to improve health. Some are no surprise--light, water, and air--but Balch gives us innovative, practical strategies for improving these areas. We all know we need to eat more "green foods," but Balch isn't talking about broccoli; rather, he recommends wheat grass and barley grass ("the most complete preventive medicine available ... one of the ultimate gifts of God"). Balch's other favorite remedies are garlic, ginseng, ginkgo biloba, chelation therapy, natural hormone balance (diet, DHEA, natural progesterone, black cohosh), and combined vitamins C and E. Some of his remedies are controversial and not supported by the medical community; some are backed by good research; a few are common sense and indisputable. Inform yourself with this book and other viewpoints, talk it all over with your physician, and evaluate what is best for your health. --Joan Price

Format: Hardcover
For anyone who is tired of having medical information doled out by a resistant medical hierarchy, here is some straightforward information to get you on the path to wellness. To reduce this book to a commentary about "grass clippings" (wheat barley grass), as a previous reviewer did, is a real injustice. Dr. Balch mentions the truly cutting edge information about numerous therapies unknown to most of us,including oxygen healing therapies like ozone treatments as one of the "10 Natural Remedies That Can Save Your Life."
Very quietly, even conventional MD's are using hyperbaric oxygen chambers and other oxygen-related treatments to treat patients with the so-called "flesh eating bacteria." Why? Because ozone and many other oxygen therapies are the ONLY treatments known to "kill the bugs, not the body." In other words, where antibiotics fail to destroy these "killer bugs," and severely damage the immune system, ozone re-invigorates the body by giving oxygen on the cellular level. Don't take my word for it; do a search some time on PubMed or some other medical search engine and see what you come up with!
Medical quackery? HA! Within the next decade, the Mayo Clinic and the rest of the shrines we have built to the bloated medical bureacracy will ALL be using innovative natural cures like the ones Dr. Balch recommends in this very readable book.
His first book, "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" has sold in excess of 4 million copies. "10 Natural Remedies That Can Save Your Life," especially at the amazingly low Amazon.com price is a steal.
This is a great book, especially for those not familiar with the world of natural remedies.

Format: Hardcover
This book does the job of explaining WHAT our bodies need and WHY these Ten are the most important. Balch has helped us by picking the Ten Natural Remedies that are the most important ones. That way we can keep our focus a little better. Taking too many supplements throughout the day can get a little overwhelming. There are also combinations aimed at covering these areas of need. A site where my family has had great satisfaction in both service and product choices/quality is PapaNature. I feel the same way about praising them as I do about praising the work of the Balches. They also have additional documentation that exactly parallels Balch's topics in this great book.

I couldn't put this book down once I started it. It is really wonderful, and I have already started taking a few of the supplements the author suggests. I say "a few" because I found that the author could have done a much better job expressing/analyzing his ideas (that's why the four stars). For example, I am under 25, and there are a few things which left me in question as to whether I should start using them or not. If you are not sure of something, like me, you should see the book with your doctor and then proceed. If the author could expand a little bit more on his ideas, it would make the perfect book.

I don't usually write reviews for anything, unless I'm REALLY impressed with it. As for this book, I truly enjoyed reading it. It was an easy read, without a lot of technical detail. He explained the importance of each remedy and why they should be apart of your every day life. This is a basic guide for all adults to follow, especially for those who get bogged down with the many vitamins, supplements and natural remedies out there. The author seems sincere and compassionate towards his cause of educating people about the most proven and needed remedies out there.

I use this book to determine what my body needs. It's a starting point to further discuss supplements with a nutritionist or health store. I first found this book at the library when I was trying to come off serious medication doctors prescribed for fibromyalgia. I successfully used this book to achieve that goal. I purchased this book because I'm starting to slip back after I stopped a lot of the supplements over the years. Highly recommend.

I am myself a healthcare professional so I was expecting some revelations which this book promised but did NOT deliver. I'm sorry to be harsh but why oh why do we equate a medical degree with any real breakthroughs in Natural Health. Is it the MD behind the name? I myself fell for it even though I have long ago figured out that it was the medical community that poo-pooed vitamins and dragged their collective feet kicking and screaming "foul" while trying to dismiss the effects or destroy those who believed in them for years in favor of dangerous drugs instead.
Now here's this doctor with his less than brilliant contribution only the following advice, water, air, light, hormones and a chapter entitled Garlic, ginseng and ginkgo biloba; three mainstays which everyone knows if they've been alive and read anything in the last 8 years. Honestly, I don't know why this man wrote this book except to re-cap age old advice we all know and if not, should be able to gather from common sense. No breakthroughs here and a whole lot of real breakthroughs left out; where for example is the chapter on DMSO? I don't get it.
