Book Preface

The Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine

This book was written in an effort to update the public’s knowledge about the use of natural medicines in the maintenance of health and treatment of disease. It dispels a common myth about the use of natural remedies—that natural medicine is “unscientific.” This book contains information based on firm scientific inquiry and represents an evidence-based approach to wellness. This encyclopedia is without question the most thoroughly researched and referenced book on the use of natural medicines ever written for the public.

The book must not be used in place of consulting a physician or other qualified health care practitioner. It is designed for use in conjunction with the services provided by physicians practicing natural medicine. Readers are strongly urged to develop a good relationship with a physician knowledgeable in the art and science of natural and preventive medicine, such as a naturopathic physician. In all cases involving a medical complaint, ailment, or therapy, please consult a physician. Proper medical care and advice can significantly improve the quality of your life and extend your life span.

Although this book discusses numerous natural approaches to various health conditions, it is not intended as a substitute for appropriate medical care. Please keep the following in mind as you read:

• Do not self-diagnose. If you have concerns about any subject discussed in this book, please consult a physician, preferably a naturopathic doctor (N.D.), nutritionally oriented medical doctor (M.D.) or doctor of osteopathy (D.O.), chiropractor (D.C.), or other natural health care specialist.

• Make your physician aware of all the prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, nutritional supplements, or herbal products you are currently taking, in order to avoid any negative interactions.

• If you are currently taking a prescription medication, you absolutely must work with your doctor before discontinuing any drug or altering any drug regimen.

• Many health conditions require a multifactorial solution: medical, nutritional, and lifestyle changes. Do not rely solely on a single area of focus. You can’t just take pills and not change your diet, or do the diet and the pills but ignore the lifestyle issues. Any truly effective approach to health must be fully integrated.

We believe that if you commit to following the guidelines of natural health care described in this book, you will be rewarded with a life full of health, vitality, and vigor.
