The editors and authors of this HealthNotes publication have presented the most up-to-date information in an easy to read format without compromising scientific judgement. In the information world of alternative medicine, it is all to easy for conventional medical texts to react out of fear by recommending “extreme caution” for just about any prescription or possible nutrient/herbal interaction. “The A-Z Guide…” does a tremendous job of integrating insights of physicians form several different disciplines (the book is written by an MD, ND, and DC, et. al.), which provides the reader with a diverse and thorough scientific review of known and suspected interactions. I have personally found this book extremely helpful in the waiting room and on my desk as a quick refernce.
I find this book really useful in my practice.
The authors of this book have made a significant contribution to the resources available for today’s health consumer. By providing this current, well-organized and useful “guide” they are helping those of us trying to protect or improve our own health, and those of us facilitating others in doing that, tremendously! Their research is thorough and and unbiased – I highly recommend it.
