As a naturopathic physician, I have a rather extensive library of natural health books. The author's insight into disease, and prevention of disease is particularly insightful. Anyone who suffers from a chronic condition should read this book. Many chronic conditions are covered; but even if your's are not, the information presented is still valuable in the pursuit of overall health. It is truly a gem.

I really liked this book. Lots of great info about how basic minerals effect your body and keep you healthy or make you sick. It gave me lots of new ideas.
It's more than a little gory at times. I guess doing 18,000 autopsies, gave the author sort of a callous view of life. The descriptions of what the Inca and Jack the Ripper did to their captives is not for the weak at heart. Hint: a deficiency of minerals causes strange cravings.
One new idea I really liked was the documentation of zinc deficiency in mothers that become pregnant as a cause of Down's syndrome. Apparently one can demonstrate this in the lab with monkeys or simians. Healthy babies then introduce a zinc deficiency in the diet and get Downs syndrome, then add the zinc back and get normal babies again. Wow!
A second idea: adding rare earths to the diet of mice and other animals extends life span by 2X! Wow, again! Excellent bibliography, but I was unable to locate this one paper on feeding rare earths to get 2X life span.
Excellent basic book.
I highly recomend.

I always liked Joel Wallach's approach to health. He tells it like it is. I like how he disses the doctors who poo-poo nutritional supplementation.
In this book, Wallach lays out all kinds of newspaper clippings from various newspaper articles about doctors and famous people who died at young ages. Those clippings are appropriately placed in the section where the major mineral deficiency was the cause of death, such as chromium for a diabetic coma, etc.
This book is a wonderful source of information on minerals, and their functions. It also lays out all kinds of info on deficiency diseases, and how minerals can help certain ailments.
This section also covers a bunch of different alternative approaches to wellness, such as Ayurvedic medicine, the Dean Ornish Diet, and many others. The information is in depth, and covers a good amount of material for a book focused on mineral supplementation.
This book pretty much has it all, and is a great read if you wish to gain knowledge on the role of minerals in our health and well being.

This book has information that hasn't even been heard by 99.99% of the world's doctors yet. If you want to learn about the effects of praseodymium, yttrium and many other super rare and strange elements and the effects of elements at curing hundreds of diseases that currently have no cure, read this book! You'll learn that chromium and magnesium can cure hypoglycemia, or that vanadium can cure diabetes. All sorts of amazing things are in this book!

Very interesting to know that a selenium deficiency is involved in muscular dystrophy! Selenium and other minerals/vitamins and associated with heart disease. This book goes into many chronic diseases and what mineral(s) may be responsible. Highly recommended.

Not a diet book by any means, but more of a guide to deep nutrition. This book takes you on a journey into complete wellness. Show's you what trace elements do in your body and why they are so essential for every organ of the body. Also explains enzyme co-factors. I grow my own food and it's amazing to me how much alike we are to plant's.

I bought this book after seeing Dr. Joel Wallach on TV speaking about it. I was familiar with Dr. Wallach from his "Dead Doctors" tape of years ago & I read this book from cover to cover (as much as one could given some highly technical info). It served to reinforce my belief that in large, 'you are what you eat', & that our current food supply does not contain adequate nutrition as many 'professionals' would have you believe. I plan to re-read this book once or twice more, so I will not be passing it along as I do with so many of the books that I've read.
