 DID YOU KNOW?

 A cancer-related checkup is recommended every 3 years for people aged 20 to 40 and every year for people aged 40 or older. This exam should include health counseling and, depending on a person’s age and gender, might include examinations for cancers of the thyroid, oral cavity, skin, lymph nodes, testes, or ovaries, as well as for some nonmalignant diseases.

A high dietary intake of vitamin C has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of death from heart attacks and strokes, as well as all other causes including cancer.

 Many clinical and experimental studies have clearly demonstrated that stress, personality, attitude, and emotion are etiologic or contributory in suppressing the immune system as well as leading to the development of many diverse diseases.

Regular exercise has been demonstrated to provide benefit to individuals with immunodeficiency diseases, particularly through stress alleviation and mood enhancement. HIV-positive individuals had increases in CD4, CD8, and natural killer (NK) cells immediately following aerobic exercise.

 Melatonin exerts significant anticancer effects, especially against breast cancer. Vitamin E not only improves insulin action, it also exerts a number of beneficial effects when taken at dosages ranging from 400 to 800 IU, which may aid in preventing the long-term complications of diabetes.

About the Authors:
Michael T. Murray, N.D., Author of 23 books, including the acclaimed bestseller The Encyclopedia of Natural Foods (co-authored with Dr. Joseph Pizzorno), Dr. Michael T. Murray is regarded as the world authority on natural medicine. An educator, lecturer, researcher and health food industry consultant, Michael also serves as the Director of Product Development and Education at Natural Factors, a health product firm.

Joseph Pizzorno N.D., Dr. Joseph Pizzorno is cofounder of Bastyr University, the first accredited multidisciplinary university of natural medicine in the United States.

My Thoughts About the Book: As I live with 2 brain tumors and other health conditions related to my tumors and was on what seemed like a ton of medications, (10 in all), AND was feeling worse as the days and months passed I needed a different approach to my health. What I needed was a new and different perspective and plan and well EUREKA I found it. I found what I was looking for in The Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine.

As I read the book I read about my particular health concerns as well as the many others that are featured in the book and began to apply what I was learning. With my doctor's agreement I went off 7 of the medications I was on and started a new health regimen recommended in the book that includes diet and appropriate supplementation and I feel a world of improvement in the month I have been doing things differently. I had severe edema in my left ankle and foot - GONE! I had blurry vision, I felt tired and confused a good portion of the day with cognitive and intellectual impairment and now since following the advice provided in the book my vision has improved as well as my mental state and cognitive function. The one thing that has not happened yet and I am waiting for is for the plan I am on to make me more handsome than I already am. I don't think there is a plan or an App for that one. Well, one can only wish can't they? LOL!

There are several things I like about the book: its holistic perspective on the treatment of disease, the research and science behind many of the lifestyle modifications recommended in the book, the fact it is written by 2 of the world's most brilliant and renowned doctors of Naturopathy and researchers who have "been there and done that" as far as actually treating patients and studying the body and disease, (in other words the book is so much more than just theoretical in nature - it is both scientific and practical). What more could a person ask for?

Dr. Murray and Dr. Pizzorno in their informative and well written book start us on our journey to achieving better health in the book by revealing just what "Natural Medicine" really is without all the hype and referring to how we need to tap into our own natural healing powers to help our bodies heal. It is in this section of the book Dr.'s Murray and Pizzorno remind us of the importance and role of faith in health which is especially significant to me as a lover and follower of Christ.

Next they write about the "Four Cornerstones of Good Health" which can lead to our achieving a better quality of health and life. The 4 are: the scientifically proven fact that by having a positive mental attitude we can improve our health and lives. secondly they reveal what a "Health Promoting Lifestyle" is, thirdly what it means to eat a "Health Promoting" Diet and finally they conclude the section of the book sharing invaluable information concerning "Supplementary Measures" for us to be aware of, (how by taking the right supplements in the right doses a person can achieve better health).

In the next section the authors write about eight "Special Topics" that relates to our overall health and well-being. In this section they include what a "Cellular Approach" to health consists of, information concerning "Cancer Prevention," how essential it is to detoxify and internally cleanse our bodies and how to safely go about doing so, "Digestion and Elimination," Heart and overall Cardiovascular Health, "Immune System Support," "Longevity and Life Extension," "Silent Inflammation," "Stress Management" and finally "Obesity and Weight Management. All are vitally essential to overall good health and well-being. And like the songwriter wrote concerning "Love and Marriage" and how you can't have one without the other...well, if you want to BE healthy you have to THINK healthy, EAT healthy, supplement sensibly and follow the other principles shared in the book.

It is in the final and major portion of the book where authors Murray and Pizzorno write about over 80 different medical conditions from A to V - there are no W, X, Y or Z of ailments referred to in their book. They write about such conditions as Acne and AIDS and HIV, Asthma, Menopause, Diabetes, Erectile Dysfunction, and Stroke as well as recovery from conditions that have negatively impacted or do still impact my life: Anxiety, Cerebral Vascular Insufficiency, Depression, High Cholesterol and Triglycerides, Hypothyroidism, and Insomnia which either have been totally eliminated or are being improved as a result of my following the recommendations provided in the book. And please keep in mind I am doing this with my doctor's awareness and direction which if you are going to start implementing any of the recommendations in the book - altering your medical treatment plan in any way - I strongly suggest you do the same. Let your doctor know.

I would love to be able to tell you that by purchasing the book, reading it and following the recommendations provided you will be able to live a 100% healthy life never experiencing any of the medical conditions featured in the book that will require some type of medical treatment. But I can't because that would be dishonest of me to do so, BUT, what I can absolutely tell you from my experience as well as the experience of countless people I know that if you do purchase the book, read it and follow the recommendations given, you should be able to achieve a better quality of health and live a more healthy, happy and fulfilling life. And nothing for nothing, any improvement is better than no improvement and feeling 30 or 40% better is sure better than not feeling any better at all so I am 100% sold on the book and will be continuing to read it and learn from it so that I can hopefully with the Grace and help of God experience even a better quality of health and life in the future.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I really like this book! 18 février 2013
Par Valerie B. Lull - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I purchased this book for a class I was taking as it was required for the course. I am so glad the professor included it in the required reading. I probably never would have bought the book on my own. The book is large and thick and the print is easy to read.

The book is divided into 4 sections. Section I introduces us to natural medicine, section II is on important things for good health,like diet and lifestyle, section III is special topics such as cancer prevention, detoxification, heart health, longevity and life-extension, etc. and finally section IV which lists specific health problems and write-ups on each problem which covers a description of the disease, it's causes, diagnostic considerations, therapeutic considerations, botanical medicines and a quick review and summary.

I have found the information to be quite comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date. I enjoyed the section on longevity and life extension and the sections I have been required to read for my class. There is a glossary and an index. I found it easy enough for the layman to read and understand and anyone who is interested in natural,holistic medicine should have a copy.-- Valerie Lull, Author, Ten Healthy Teas

An indispensable, easy-to-read reference book written by one of America's most iconic naturopaths. Dr. Joe Pizzorno founded the nation's foremost school of science-based naturopathic medicine, and this book reflects his passion for sharing knowledge. Worth it's weight in gold, and that's saying a lot for a book with over 1,200 pages!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very interesting and useful book on health 17 mars 2013

I have the kindle version of this book so can read it on several devices. I have learned so much from this book, I haven't finished it yet but am very impressed with the information in it and how it's written (not too technical but not dumbed down). I want to expand my reading material of natural medicine and naturopathic treatments and this book has been a great starting point. I don't believe conventional medicine is wrong, I believe the two should be working together with recognition of certain illnesses requiring natural medicine, and others perhaps requiring conventional treatment. Natural medicine is preventative and should be first on the list, conventional medicine should come later (excluding cases of physical assault or accidents where the ER is obviously the best place to go). I would recommend this book to anyone interested in health and wellbeing!
