Bowden, Jonny. The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth: The Surprising, Unbiased Truth About What Treatments Work and Why. Fair Winds: Quayside. Jan. 2008. c.360p. photogs. index. ISBN 978-1-59233-291-5. pap. $24.99. HEALTH Verdict: In this fast-paced world of pill poppers and pill pushers, fitness expert Bowden (Living the Low-Carb Life) provides a welcome, vetted holistic approach encompassing the mind-body connection and natural treatments. Although the book's organization could be improved by listing each condition alphabetically, the content is useful, and readers can locate topics using the index. Recommended for medium to large public and academic libraries.

Background: In six chapters, Bowden reviews more than 75 specific health concerns and alternative treatments for a variety of topics including cancer, skin disorders, PMS, stress, diabetes, menopause, and depression. Readers learn about alternative and cutting-edge natural remedies, including supplements, herbs, foods, and healthy lifestyle choices, complete with research, a glossary, recommended reading and resources, and indexes. More than 75 attractive full-color photos lend the book a coffee-table tome browsability  - Library Journal's Xpress Reviews

Who doesn't have a "natural cures" book out these days? With diet and health books coming out of our ears these days, it seems everybody and their momma has their own take on what it takes to get and stay healthy in modern society. Sadly, many of these "experts" are nothing more than fly-by-night shysters who are simply in it to bilk you out of your hard-earned dollars by making you buy some obscure products that can (SURPRISE SURPRISE!) only be purchased from the author's web site. AVOID THESE "natural cures" books!

That's what makes Dr. Jonny Bowden's THE MOST EFFECTIVE NATURAL CURES ON EARTH so special. He presents well-researched and commonly-found cures to many of life's ailments that completely run the gamut. From obesity to diabetes to joint pain and everything in between, Dr. Bowden has got you covered. You may be surprised to learn a particular dietary approach that is often erroneously labeled as a "fad" by much of the medical community and the media is one of the primary "cures" that is shared for a cross-section of ailments.

Unlike most books of this genre, Dr. Bowden makes this stuff sound cool, too. His engaging writing style is what fans of his have been loving since he wrote LIVING THE LOW-CARB LIFE and THE 150 HEALTHIEST FOODS ON EARTH. You get more of the same with all the very latest studies to back up every claim made in this book. This is DEFINITELY one book you won't want to be without if you care about your health.

Jonny Bowden's new book, The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth, is another great achievement by one of alternative medicine's best authors. It's accessible, well researched and will have a profound impact on your health and your future. Every household should have at least one copy.

The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth is a fantastic reference for doctors but I recommend it to my patients as well. Whether you're looking for insights into a particular supplement, a strategy for treating a specific illness or expert advice for staying young, active and healthy, his book will exceed your expectations every time you open it.

Jonny's writing style is warm and entertaining, and the benefits of his wisdom are readily available. Turn to any page and you'll find a great idea that's easy to understand and easy to apply right away. What's more, Jonny demystifies the science of nutrition and puts the power of healing in your own hands. And for this, he's done you a great service. I highly recommend this book.

This is a wonderful book that presents a vast amount of useful information in an accessible way. The author supports the material he presents in the book by citing credible sources. He also doesn't shy away from addressing negative as well as positive elements about the "cures" he presents and he gives the reader sources for additional reading on a myriad of topics. The information in the book is very practical and can easily be incorporated into one's day to day life.

I like Jonny Bowden a lot. He demonstrates a very reasonable attitude towards nutritional and lifestyle interventions for health issues, and never comes off as alarmist. Yet after reading this book, he also strikes me as somewhat hypocritical. In the introduction, he talks about how the mainstream media and medical establishment have selectively interpreted research studies on nutritional therapies to make them seem less effective, and done the same to studies on pharmaceutical interventions to make them seem more effective. The problem is that Bowden may be doing the same thing, albeit in the opposite direction. We have no way to know, because there is not a single footnote in this book, despite the fact that Bowden references research studies quite often. This was also an issue with his 150 healthiest food book, although it was not nearly as problematic there because the book was not explicitly a book on medical treatments. This book also suffers from a lack of organization, and is not as comprehensive as books such as Alan Gaby's Natural Pharmacy, although perhaps that was not its intention. Again, Bowden is a stand up guy. He is to be praised for refusing to promote conspiracy theories about modern medicine, and his conversational tone makes his book a pleasure to read. Next time he writes a book however, he should make more of an effort to incorporate sound scientific practices into its formulation, so that it can truly challenge some of the troubling biases in our healthcare system.

It wasn't until I'd read all the health information in this book that I noticed that the author listed Dr Oz as a contributor, and also that Dr Oz says on the cover of the book that this book is one he goes back to again and again. That really explained a lot. This book is full of the sort of lightweight, superficial, incomplete, misleading and at best half-truth type health information that you get from someone like Dr Oz or in a 'health and beauty' magazine article. It's newstainment or maybe healthtainment.

The title is misleading as this book is not at all about cures, but just about adding a few supplements or herbs to mostly suppress symptoms instead of just using drugs. There are a few bits of good information but the information given is so incomplete. There are so many other more comprehensive and useful books out there.

This book could only look good if you haven't got your hand on any of the really good health books out there. Once you have, this one is hard to take seriously. It ignores so much of the most basic and important good information written by experts in the field. It's very light on references too, unlike the really good books.

For example, the author recommends taking St Johns Wort or 5HTP if you have depression. These are treatments which can be used in place of antidepressant drugs to help reduce symptoms. But they do not cure anything at all. Real causes of depression such as nutrient deficiencies and heavy metal toxicity and so many more things, are not even mentioned. Healing and curing is very different to mere symptom suppression. Symptom suppression is still symptom suppression and not healing even if you use herbs to do it with.
