Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Null (The Clinician's Handbook of Natural Healing, LJ 5/15/98) has compiled a guide to natural healing intended for "today's confused health care consumer," and the easy-to-use format will indeed appeal to the lay reader. Unfortunately, references to scientific research are missing, undermining the often solid advice that Null provides. The book is divided into two sections: "Conditions," arranged like an encyclopedia with natural cures for over 60 ailments, and "Treatments and Patient Experiences," in which Null shares patients' views while often criticizing traditional medical approaches, e.g., for prostate cancer, he favors ozone treatment in Mexico over surgery. Even though Null offers clear discussions of causes, symptoms, cures, and treatment summaries, these personal testimonies do not add to the reliability of his book. Most of the therapies are not controversial, however; interventions like massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, and allergy control are, for instance, recommended for conditions like headaches. But the recommendations for herbal remedies and dietary supplements come simply from Null's own naturopathic experience, without any supporting scientific evidence. By comparison, naturopathic physicians Michael Murray and Joseph Pizzorno cite 53 references to studies supporting their claims in the chapter on migraines in their Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine (LJ 5/1/91). This is too bad, for Null's guide has a great deal of common-sense advice for diet improvements, detoxification, immune system fortification, mental attitude improvements, and lifestyle changes that are in line with the philosophy of natural medicine. To be used with caution in larger alternative medicine collections only.ARebecca Cress-Ingebo, Wright State Univ. Libs, Dayton, OH

Format: Paperback
The Complete Encyclopedia of Natural Healing offers quick and relevant insights for your health. I truly enjoy this book for its straight forward details and users-friendly nature. Dr. Null writes with a simple elegance which makes the information easy to understand and even easier to apply. Easier does not mean simply. I find that practically every sentence offers some important insights into the subject; this is not a small feat considering the fact that the "Complete Encyclopedia" is over 600 pages. I'd read other reviews knocking this book for its lack of scientific references, but there are more than enough notable references. Honestly, do you really want to read 5,000 scientific citations every time someone says that vitamin C or ginseng works? If you really do, then I suggest you read Dr. Gary Null's "Clinician's Handbook of Natural Healing," which offers 870 pages of scientific peer review studies. Growing up in an Asian household, I can not tell you how much astragalus, wolfberry and other Chinese herbs I ate not as herbal remedies but as a part of a regular diet. I have also added daily supplements of numerous vitamins to my diet for the better part of my life. If I have a bias for the alternative supplements mentioned in Dr. Null's book, it is formed through years of personal experiences. My wife and I use the remedies mentioned in the "Complete Encyclopedia" quite often, because information is quickly available and comprehensively revealed. Furthermore, Dr. Null's reputation as one of the primary authority on dietary supplements is unequivocal considering the outstanding history he has as a pioneer of the industry. His "Complete Encyclopedia of Natural Healing" is a wonderful complementary journal that read with a coffee table friendliness.

38 of 41 people found the following review helpful By John F. Wright on March 17, 2007
Format: Paperback
(Comments based on the 2006 edition)

This book has five hundred pages covering various illnesses, 70 pages on the "Gary Null Protocol and testimonials" and finishes with another 130 pages on various treatments which is mostly more testimonials. There is no section on nutrients and what they do or dosages (sometimes the illness sections do mention dosage for some nutrients).

Largely this book depends on whether or not you trust and believe Gary Null. (there are no actual references as to where he obtained any of this information, no references to studies) If you trust Mr. Null then this is a highly readable book. And may be one of the best resources for a non-technical person.

But if you are looking for a reference book to further your knowledge of nutrition this probably isn't the best choice of book.

I do recommend this book (despite the low rating I've given it), the information (what little there is) appears to be good. And it certainly should rate highly for the "readability" factor. This book really shouldn't be sold for more than about $10.

35 of 40 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Joseph S. Maresca HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on September 14, 2003
Format: Paperback
The book is excellent overall. The author's presentation is
drawn considerably from his own experience in formulating and
implementing these protocols. Some of the protocols may be
seen in various journals of the Lancet or in studies done
overseas. Dr. Null emphasizes the need for a patient to
"listen to the body" as a condition precedent to a successful
healing experience. That is, repeating harmful behaviors
only impedes the healing process. The key to a successful
healing experience is a careful monitoring and control over
behaviors which are at the heart of the disease process.
Dr. Null's extensive knowledge of bio-chemistry is evident
from the discussion and implementation of a number of the
recommended protocols. To gain a better perspective on the
general area of alternative medicine, it might be helpful to
utilize this work in conjunction with the Alternative Medicine
work by Burton Goldberg. In addition, Dr. Null gives frequent
lectures on radio . It would be helpful to listen to these
presentations in order to obtain foundational material on
the peer-reviewed journals which cite the natural healing
methodologies and the supportive statistical data.
Burton Goldberg's work on Alternative Medicine cites
hundreds of alternative medicine practitioners and an
equal number of research sources in peer-reviewed journals.

Format: Hardcover
This book was written for the layperson but written by an Expert. Gary Null gets down to the root of the problem and tells you what to do for your problem. An important thing that he talks about doing for almost every symptom is to exercise and to destress which is very important instead of just taking vitamins. The book also includes a section on magnet therapy and biofeedback.

I lecture on nutrition wellness and holistic medicine. Gary's book is of use to me however it would be of more use if the facts in the book were referenced to peer reviewed studies. There are no references substantuating what he says in the book. There are also not many references to side effects or contraindications. Overall its not a bad book. I just wish it was more referenced.

My asthma has entirely improved. I run everyday and my energy level is soaring. I believe everyone should have a copy of this book in their home. Throw away the medicine in the medicine cabinet and fill it with natures healing sources! Thank you Mr. Null.
