This is a gem of a book that compares traditional medical prescription drugs to herbal, nutritional and dietary alternatives.
Considering that prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death, this book describes how to avoid their abuse by seeking safer, more natural alternatives.
It describes the possible side effects of the drugs, their possible interaction with other drugs and supplements. Specifically it outlines chapters for the digestive tract, upper respiratory system, pain relief, antibiotics, anti-fungals, insomnia and the nervous system, diabetes, eye diseases, prostate, synthetic hormones, osteoporosis and herpes.
This book is very practical and useful for both the lay person and health practitioner. Highly recommended. Published by Keats and copyright in 1998.
