Dr. Stengler's book is an easy to use, fact-filled book. I have used alternative medicine extensively for the past 7 years, yet I found so much new information in this book. It is comprehensive, all the topics are explained well and easy to understand and implement, so that even a "beginner" would benefit greatly from it.
This book deserves at least a 5 Star review.

A very clearly written guide for "alternative medicine" [which is in fact part of medicine which every doctor should use, as the only purpose in medicine is to try to heal or to bring relief]

A lot of information,written in a modest style, nothing "blown up".

Highly recommended.

I have to say this book has quickly become one of my most used reference books on natural medicine. Dr. Stengler did a truly superb job in consolidating the information in an understandable and practical way. I count his book as a reliable resource for herbal/nutritional/homeopathic information. And, that says a lot because nowadays anybody with some credentials can write up a book, but is it information you can trust? Another thing about this book, that I truly liked was it opened the world of homeopathy to me - the uses of Sepia and Pulsatilla for women!

This book shuld be on every interested person's bookshelf. You won't regret buying it!! I know, I don't.

I purchased this book for a relative since I already own a copy. It's a great book! I have many
similar Natural Healing Resource books; however, I find that I use this one the most. It's
written well, and has practical advice & suggestions for just about everything imaginable!
Well worth the price! No home should be without a copy!

I have read several books about Vitamins and Herbs. By far this is my Favorite Book. This book has a break down of each item and how it can help and works in the body's system. I found out several interesting facts I did not know. I have poor health and this book has helped me to find vitamins, and herbs that really help. Not just throwing my money away on things that do not work. This has also helped a friend with Lupus, Heart problems.

I was impressed right off the bat to learn that Aconite, a homeopathic remedy, is a potent ally in the battle with the flu as well as general anxiety when administered right away. Homeopathic information is not usually given in the popular literature one finds coming from naturopathy. So "naturally" I was impressed and grateful for this tidbit right out of the gate or among the first pages of this book.
Unfortunately the book seems to come up short in other areas. For instance, the failure to mention the use of Cetyl Myristoleate for arthritis. It is an EFA and has been found to be powerfully effective against arthritis in many cases. This should be big news in a book on "Naturopathic Healing Therapies", yet there is no mention of it here. This would seem to me to be a gross overlook by the author and a liability when an author is orientated so much towards one school of thought,ie.Homeopathic, over another when writing about a vast topic such as natural medicinal protocols.
I must say in all fairness that Dr.Stengler will go to great lengths to flesh out info on a patient that most Docs might not consider relevant such as diet, sleeping habits, emotional profile and questions regarding what the patient has used as supplements and or medications or modalities other than the usual garden variety western Doctor would prescribe. Sometimes a customized protocol is just what the Doctor ordered, at least in this man's practice. I do recommend this book for those seeking help from a naturopath who is obviously talented and dedicated to his mission.Joint Power Rx 120 capsules

This book written by Dr. Mark Stengler is an excellent guide and easy to reference when you feeling ill and want to try alternative medicine.

I love, love, love this book and will keep referring to it when someone in my household is sick. I wish every medical doctor was taught the healing methods in this book and big pharma stop pushing their poisonous drugs on our society.

I strongly recommend the purchasing of this book if you want to learn some simple and proven ways to address your illnesses.

I give this book 5 stars all the way.
