From the authors of the megaselling Prescription for Natural Cures--a comprehensive resource for natural alternatives to prescription medications
With more than 100,000 deaths attributed to adverse medication reactions in the United States each year and concerns over drug safety hitting the headlines with alarming regularity, more and more consumers are searching for credible information on natural alternatives to pharmaceutical medications and their risks and side effects. Now America's leading natural health authorities have created the most complete, up-to-date, and user-friendly book available on effective natural drug alternatives for common ailments, including acid reflux, ADHD, asthma, diabetes, eczema, heart disease, herpes, erectile dysfunction, osteoporosis, and PMS. The book offers in-depth information about each condition, goes on to describe the prescription and over-the-counter drug treatment options (evaluating their pros and cons), then outlines the many responsible natural treatment options that consumers can consider--either alone or working with their professional healthcare provider--to address their individual needs. Like Prescription for Natural Cures, this book is bound to be a classic natural health bestseller.
