The Top Ten Books on Natural Medicine –
These Should Be on Your Bookshelf
We are often asked to recommend books on various health topics. We’re good people to ask. We are both addicted readers and a few moments ago I roughly calculated that we have close to 100 square feet of shelf space dedicated to mind/body/spirit-related books. The ten books that follow are among the best books in their fields. Naturally, each health-savvy person will have their own list, with perhaps no overlap between lists at all. We have tried to include only books that have a lasting, long-term relevance and have avoided including books that reflect current health fads.
Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine
Joseph Pizzorno, N.D. and Michael Murray, N.D.
If you only had space on your shelf for one book on natural medicine, this might be it. Scientifically well researched and documented, Drs. Pizzorno and Murray present easy-to-read discussions on and natural approaches to over 70 common conditions. Perhaps just as important as the conditions discussed are the introductory chapters on natural medicine and the section on the four cornerstones of good health, which guide the reader to a deeper understanding of naturopathic and holistic medical approaches to health care.
What About Immunizations?
Exposing the Vaccine Philosophy
The most important decision parents will have to make concerning their newborn's health is whether or not and when to vaccinate. Continuing research in the field of immunology has raised serious questions about both the viability and safety of vaccinations. It is the responsibility of each parent to open-mindedly analyze the issues before buying into the present conventional wisdom. The thought-provoking, beautifully-researched, common-sense discussion in this book was written by a mother who was not getting clear and convincing answers to questions she was asking her pediatrician about vaccinations.
