making every other book I have read on arthritis unnecessary.

Review
David Getoff, Naturopath, Board certified clinical nutritionist and Educator,
San Diego California : "As an educator in the holistic health field who teaches
200-300 new students each year, I try to keep abreast of the vast number of new
books that are constantly barraging the health arena. Every year my students ask
me to recommend titles in various areas of holistic health and I need to know
which select few in each field are the good ones. As both a Naturopath and Board
Certified Clinical Nutritionist in private practice, I like to suggest books to
my patients which are both informative, accurate, easy to read, and
comprehensively cover their topic. Ever since I first discovered Raquel's book
The Estrogen alternative , it has been my first choice for books to educate both
students and patients on the topic of alternatives to prescription hormone
replacement therapy. Well she's done it again. Her new book on natural therapies
for arthritis is fantastic. Somehow, Raquel and her co-author, Dr. Karen Romano,
have managed to supply the reader with a very useable amount of information in
just about every single subject area related to arthritis. This book is an
astounding encyclopedia of useable information and it succeeds in making every
other book I have read on arthritis unnecessary. This one book has it all."

John Hart, MD :
"Preventing & Reversing Arthritis Naturally: The Untold Story contains some
practical information that can bring dramatic improvement to those suffering
from arthritis. It is a 'user friendly' book that encourages and empowers the
reader to find the cause of their joint disorders. The authors emphasize that
in some cases there may be a need for a multi-disciplinary approach using
natural therapies and not masking symptoms with pain killers and tranquilizers."

Ralph C. Lee, M.D. (Dr. Lee has promoted nutrition and preventive medicine in
his family practice in Marietta, Georgia for twenty years.) :

"Preventing & Reversing Arthritis Naturally: The Untold Story by Raquel Martin
and Dr. Karen Romano explain for us the basic ingredients necessary not only for
good health in general, but specifically, for achieving freedom from arthritis.
In the fast-paced, and frequently artificial, lifestyles we live these days,
most of us have lost or forgotten the peace, stamina and exuberance of truly
healthy bodies and minds. Those 'vehicles of the spirit' have become congested,
sluggish, and often painful.

Her fascinating description of nutrients, herbs phytonutrients), exercise, body
therapies, stress management and sunlight is thorough, and well documented and
referenced. But perhaps her most valuable contribution is the call for courage,
personal responsibility and discipline; qualities innate in all of us, that must
be nurtured and developed. Her personal experience and example attests to that,
and these qualities combined with knowledge can lead any of us back naturally to
our birthright of vibrant health.

The concept of natural hormone replacement explained in this book is 'an idea
whose time has come'. It is a vital path to improving health and well-being.
Mrs. Martin and Dr. Romano also outlines strategies for making the most of our
present medical-pharmaceutical-insurance-system and suggests ideas for
compassionately making it better.

I enthusiastically recommend this book, not only for people with arthritis, but
for anyone who wishes to explore new ways to achieve optimum health. I also
recommend it to my colleagues who would like to learn more about nutrition,
phytonutrients and alternative/complementary medicine."
