4.0 out of 5 stars Natural medicine March 8, 2002
This handbook is a shorter version of the textbook of Natural Medicine published a few years ago by the first two authors. The three present authors are all affiliated with the Bastyr University, Washington in the United States. This college of naturopathic medicine was established in 1978 by Les Griffith, Bill Mitchell and Joe Pizzorno in the name of their teacher John Bastyr. He was one of the pioneers of natural medicine, who had grown up with a father pharmacist and a mother interested in healthy living in the beginning of the 1900 in Seattle.
The Bastyr University today offers the student acupuncture and oriental medicine, applied behavioral science, exercise science and wellness, nerbal sciences, nutrition, psychology with a health concentration, spirituality, health and medicine. Joe Pizzorno, a former midwife, co-founder and past president of the University has been instrumental in bringing scientific methods to natural medicine and setting educational standards for teaching in this field.
This book has 74 chapters or entries on 74 common diseases from Acne to viral pharyngitis and a useful index. Each entry is arranged in a reader friendly way with therapeutic flow charts to help in the decision making process. You will find information on diet, supplements and natural medicine treatments and when needed also traditional medicine options.
The book can be recommended to the therapist interested in learning about natural medicine options in various diseases and for the physician interested in using natural medicine in addition or sometimes instead of traditional drugs...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference April 17, 2013
By T. Hill
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My only real complaint is that there aren't more conditions covered. For all of the conditions included in this handbook I find it to be a great reference to see multiple natural therapies including diet, lifestyle, nutrition, and herbs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Student Clinic Reference June 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave this five stars due to its usefulness in student clinic. I use the kindle version and it works very nicely on all my devices. I particularly like the treatment algorithms. It does an excellent job of walking you through everything and includes various treatment options. Well referenced. I actually would recommend this one over the often recommended Textbook of natural medicine. I would recommend getting Clinical Naturopathic Medicine with this textbook for a quick reference and in depth combo. Combine those two with the 5 minute clinical consult for your allopathic overview and you will be set nicely.

1.0 out of 5 stars not enough information, very complicated and hard to understand...
I needed help with my illness and I read this book. I was looking for help. While reading it I got so depressed because I couldn't understand the author's advice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than the large version...
But, that's not saying much. The clinical flowcharts are somewhat useful. But, like much of naturopathy this book is geared toward questionable diagnoses like food intolerances,... Read more
