bah humbug

I thought I was getting the newest edition (6th) ended up with this 2nd edition. Not at all what I wanted. I wanted the newest info on ADHD

Excellent Book

This is a book I've wanted for quite some time now. I was so happy to find it here. It didn't take it long at all to be shipped to my door. I ordered 4 other books with this one and they all arrived in less than a week. Talk about being super nerdy lol I immediately scanned through the books and this one especially. They are all in excellent condition and this one I plan to make notes with. I've been working with nutritional and herbal healing for a while now and this is a wonderful addition to my collection. This one, will be front and center for some time. I love the layout of the book, the detail and how it shows after every section of each remedy the warnings, uses, etc. I highly recommend anyone that wants away from the everyday humdrum of the medical industry. Dive into this book :)

Excellent Health Book Resource

I follow the recommendations and I can feel the difference over a period of time. I am very impressed with the book and like the spiral binding. It's a top 3 "should have in your library" health book. I'm very grateful for their efforts. It's helped my life tremdously and I highly recommend "Prescription for Nutrional Healing" as it's companion. Thank You Soooo Much..

Exceptional detailed information on all supplements.

I have been buying these updated books for as long as I can remember. I found this book to be the queen bee on detailed info on all nutritional supplements. I learned an incredible amount of information on how important nutrition is to your body. Missing certain supplements in your body can cause all sorts of undesirable diseases and problems. It describes in detail what diseases/problems occur (most likely) when you are lacking certain supplements. This book has been truly helpful in the building of my site ( and has shed a lot of light on nutrition.A must have!

*The* primary alternative medicine reference work...

"Prescription For Nutritional Healing" is perhaps the most condensed dictionary of practical alternative medicine available. The book contains so much information that it actually boggles the mind it can fit into one book. The book starts out with a large section entitled "Elements of Health." In this section, the Balch team discusses vitamins, amino acids, enzymes, herbs, natural food supplements and their history and uses. There is a helpful herb chart that lists the herb, the effective parts of the herb, most of its phytonutrients, its uses, and comments such as toxicity. This section is a primer for those who want to know a little bit about the nutrients they will be taking.The next section, which makes up the bulk of the book, is the "Disorders" section. It goes from Abscesses to Yeast Infections, covering a host of common and rare disorders in between. For each disorder, a treatment plan is outlined by name and dose, and nutrients are grouped according to how helpful they are in treating each disorder. For instance, with regard to the common cold, Zinc lozenges are listed as "essential," while Olive Leaf extract is only listed as "helpful" (mind you, I disagree with their evaluation of olive leaf). Then they list effective herbs, followed by "recommendations." These recommendations are often common sense suggestions and additional useful information written in an easy to understand manner. Finally, there is a "consideration" section for each disease. Here the authors report on recent research and possible other helpful ideas. Many charts and tables are dispersed throughout the disease section, such as poison control center numbers, STD symptoms, pregnancy tests, and nutrient robbing chemicals and foods.The book ends with a brief description of therapies, a glossary of terms, and a list of supplement manufacturers. Overall this is an extremely useful book, which lists virtually every alternative therapy that has been found effective in clinical and controlled studies. Some of the recommendations are based on shaky evidence, and sometimes the authors confuse certain facts (for instance they suggest cancer patients eat almonds because of their laetrile content, but sweet almonds contain no laetrile; only bitter almonds do) but nonetheless, most of their claims are backed by competent studies. The third edition came out very soon after the second edition. This demonstrates how fast research into alternative therapies is moving. Also, the third edition integrates a lot of mainstream medicine into its pages, making it extremely helpful and useful to those who might only dabble with alternative medicine on occasion. I bought the first edition in the early 1990s, and whenever I have a basic question or get sick, I usually go to this book first. I am not a doctor, and obviously nobody should forsake his or her doctor and simply follow the suggestions in this book! Kudos to the Balch team for setting the standard and keeping up with recent research!

Buy this book...your health depends on it!

A must have compact version of the "big book" to take with you to the health food store, the supermarket or your health care provider. Quite a lot of valuable information on vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements is contained in so small a book. Well worth every penny.
