The 2nd edition of the Textbook of Natural Medicine is a two-volume set, which includes a case. This is an update of the popular first edition and is the most comprehensive and widely-referenced text available on natural medicine. It covers a wide range of approaches for managing and treating over 100 conditions and health problems.

The first edition was reviewed in The Journal of Alternative Medicine as "the ultimate book on naturopathic medicine."

The Textbook includes:

  • Folk use, pharmacology, clinical and scientific indications for herbal medicines, specific nutrients and other natural agents
  • The history and philosophy of natural medicine
  • Supplementary diagnostic procedures, including a description of technique and discussion of clinical application of diet analysis, food allergy testing, hair analysis, Microclot tests and other diagnostic modalities
  • A scientific and practical review of a wide range of therapeutic modalities including botanical medicine, counseling, acupuncture, fasting, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, manipulation, exercise therapy and Ayurveda
  • Syndromes and other special topics, such as hypothyroidism, food allergy, candidiasis and fever
  • Acne, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, affective disorders, alcoholism, Alzheimer´┐Żs and other specific health problems


I refer to A Textbook of Natural Medicine frequently during the day. It is very well-organized with good science behind it.

A Textbook of Natural Medicine is one of the few references I use day to day. No matter what level of knowledge a pharmacist may have in herbs and nutrition, this book will be invaluable. It is a reference everyone in the field can use.
