there is a ton of information in this book about remedies for various ailments, which is why i was tempted to keep it. however, every time i turned a page, i stumbled on more outdated, cringe-inducing, food-pyramid-era misinformation, such as, saturated fats like coconut oil increase your risk of heart attack, and you should have corn oil or canola oil instead. (seriously?!) it doesn't recommend sucralose (splenda), but says it's "metabolically inert" and would work well for diabetics. no mention of the fact that this stuff was originally meant to be a pesticide. oh, and go ahead and eat that plastic "food" -- margarine in a tub -- because we wouldn't want to get fat on butter...and while you're at it, stock up on low-fat dairy products (made by those nice food manufacturers), which have had all the nutrients sucked out of them. if the author had taken the time to look into the latest nutritional research, she would realize all of this "common knowledge" was basically propaganda that is now being debunked. coconut oil, for example, is one of the best foods you can give your body, but the corn oil industry was responsible for vilifying it to beef up their own profits. all the research is out there, but despite the fact that this is the "updated" 2010 edition, you're not going to get anything cutting-edge here. expect more of the same old regurgitated B.S. we've been fed for the past several decades, information that has served to make us a nation of fat, sick, misinformed people. a book that presents itself as the gold standard of nutritional healing can't get up to speed with information i can find in a simple google search? that's either laziness, or more propaganda. either way, i rate that a fail.

I looked up a condition called "interstitial cystitis" in the version of this book that I found today at the local health food store. I was horrified to see that the recommendations given for treating this condition were exactly the same as for cystitis caused by a bacterial infection. This could not be more wrong, or dangerous. As an R.N. and sufferer of interstitial cystitis, I can tell you that it is a well known fact that cranberry, Vitamin C, and certain B vitamins are absolutely contraindicated as they will greatly intensify the bladder pain in an already damaged bladder due to high acidity. On the contrary, the goal is to de-acidify the urine so that it is not harmed more than it already is. I can't help but wonder if there are more grave errors in this book.

I have used these desk-reference manuals for many years. It was a doctor who recommended that I get one and she was right. My current copy is '93, so it was time for a new one. Every recommendation I've ever used from this manual has worked perfectly. When I got the new one, however, I noticed some issues and a significant error.

I bought it specifically to get the most current information on thyroid issues. I noticed that under the disorder Hypothyroidism in the Considerations section, it says "see Wilson's Disease in Rare Disorders in Part Two." Hmmm. There are some issues with that.

There is no mention of a Rare Disorders section in the index at the front of the book, not on its own, nor as a section within Part Two. No mention of it at all.

First of all, the layout of the page headings in this version is horrible. In prior versions each separate disorder was in obvious bold print with dividing lines above and beneath that made the heading clearly distinguishable from the rest of the text, which makes it much easier and quicker to find. But in this new version, it is very difficult to read and takes significantly more time to actually find what you're looking for. Each disorder is just in small print that seems to be bold type but it is so slight you can't even tell at first. As if that's not enough, it is almost impossible to find Rare Disorders (with poor layout and no clear headings) which is just a small section within The Disorders section in Part Two, and is only noted by just a small print area at the top of the page with no distinction on the page itself to determine where the Rare Disorders start and end as separated from The Disorders general section.

This is a very informative resource...I've used it to try to reduce my cholesterol....we'll see how that goes. I would recommend this to anyone who would rather not take a lot of medications.

I had the 2000 edition of this book and decided to get the update and pass my old book along as it is still useful. I am increasing skeptic of the AMA medical world and this book provides the information that most physicians fail to take seriously. I have received valuable assistance that really rounds out my health information. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wishes to have some control on their body.
