New Choices in Natural Healing takes several areas of natural health care and incorporates it by condition.

Very helpful book, hard to put down. All the different approaches to natural healing for each different problem were fascinating.

I'm constantly using this as a reference when someone in our family gets sick. It's a wealth of knowledge! Also, for those interested, it's available for free to read online: http://www.mothernature.com/Library/B...

This is more of a reference book for me. It's a good book. I refer to it fairly often. Ailments are listed alphabetically. It tells you when to see a doctor based on your symptoms and gives treatments for each ailment based on the practice such as homeopathics and reflexology etc..

I am disappointed that the most current version of this book is not listed here. These books are a very valuable resource.

I first borrowed this book from TJ and found it to be an excellent resource for natural/alternative treatments. Not a ton info about each problem but is comprehensive and also a good starting point.

I read the arabic translation lots of translation mistakes.

The biggest flaw on the book is lacking the support of evidence based medicine.

At the end I don't recommend this book at all.
