Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all itâ?TMs still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

Format: Paperback
Pharmaceutical drugs and their long-term side effects are the direct or remote cause of many of our "most popular" modern diseases. A symptom tells us there is a body imbalance; pharmaceutical drugs usually attack the symtom and suppress the body's natural healing ability. Walker and Brown advocate a different approach: removing the blocks to healing and promoting the vital force within our bodies that keeps our immune system and organs functioning normally. (The simplest "natural cure" they cite is universally available, inexpensive, and so common we overlook it-- pure water.) There is an introductory discussion of homeopathics, but this is NOT a handbook on homeopathics, and you don't have to be "into" homeopathics at all to find this book helpful. The authors cite many ailments or diseases A-Z. The explanation of each ailment is followed by various headings such as: Drug Treatment (the standard prescription), Conventional Treatment, Natural Alternatives, Nutritional Supplementation, Homeopathetic Remedies, Dietary Modification, Things to Avoid, Helpful Tips. What I found especially helpful was the unconventional causes (which often seemed intuitively correct to me) listed under various ailments or diseases. It made it possible to correlate separate problems as stemming from core deficiencies or assaults on my body's immune system. With this new understanding, implementing the natural alternatives suggested by the authors made sense. The format makes it easy to "check out" various diseases or symptoms and quickly locate healthful alternatives to drug therapy.
