Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal
Murray ( The Encylopedia of Natural Medicine , LJ 5/1/91) has written another
excellent book offering an alternative to traditional healthcare. He does more
than merely list alternatives to over-the-counter and prescription drugs; his
book also includes information on the causes of diseases, the side effects of
both drug and herbal therapies, and practical advice on diet and exercise. A
section on staying healthy is particularly good since it doesn't overwhelm the
reader with too much information. Murray presents a good balance between the
advantages and disadvantages of both natural remedies and conventional medical
treatment. Although libraries that own the more in-depth encyclopedia by the
author may not need this work, it belongs in all other libraries as one of the
best guides to healthy living. With an excellent bibliography; highly

Book Description
Is there really a safer, more effective natural alternative to most prescription
and over-the-counter medicines? Yes.

In Natural Alternatives to Over-the-Counter and Prescription Drugs, his
groundbreaking book, naturopathic physician Michael T. Murray provides specific
natural alternatives to some of the drugs most used by Americans, including
Tagamet, Prednisone, Seldane, and Zantac. Examining the side effects and
effectiveness of many of the drugs used today, Murray shows how these drugs can
be replaced with less expensive natural remedies whose medicinal benefits have
been proven in clinical studies. He discusses how herbs, vitamins, minerals,
extracts, and ointments can be used to bring relief from a wide array of
specific ailments, including:

Asthma, hay fever, and the common cold
High blood pressure and high cholesterol
Heartburn and headache

With easy-to-understand charts, graphs, and tables throughout, Natural
Alternatives to Over-the-Counter and Prescription Drugs offers detailed,
practical information that will help readers live a fuller, healthier life--free
from pharmaceutical medicines.
