A valuable health resource from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Natural Mind and Spontaneous Happiness. “Dr. Andrew Weil is an extraordinary phenomenon,” says the Washington Post. And indeed, this expert in healthy living, alternative healing, and the mind-body connection has helped millions of people find relief from what ails them. Called “the bible of natural medicine” by Larry Dossey, MD, Natural Health, Natural Medicine is a comprehensive resource for everything you need to know to maintain optimum health and treat common conditions. This landmark book incorporates Dr. Weil’s theories into one useful and readable reference, featuring general diet and nutrition information as well as simple recipes, answers to readers’ most pressing questions, a catalogue of over a hundred home remedies, and numerous practical tips. This new edition includes updated scientific findings—and has been expanded to provide trustworthy advice about low-carb diets, hormone replacement therapy, Alzheimer’s, attention deficit disorder, reflux disease, autism, type 2 diabetes, erectile dysfunction, the flu, and much more. “Weil, a Harvard Medical School graduate and a member of the advisory panel for the Congressional Study of Alternative Cancer Therapies, advocates preventative health maintenance as a means of combating future painful and expensive therapies. The handbook proposes methods of creating a healthy lifestyle, offers advice on guarding against potentially fatal diseases, provides information on natural treatments, and recommends these treatments for specific common ailments. Controversial in its challenge of orthodox medicine, the manual stands out as a useful resource for its clear, concise writing style, its practical advice, and its thoughtful examination of the important issues facing contemporary health care.” —Library Journal
