ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE: THE DEFINITIVE
by Burton Goldberg 9
Also known as "The Bible of Alternative Medicine" this book is
an absolute must. It is a resource book for both patients and
health-care providers alike. In it, 380 leading physicians explain
their treatments. It contains information on how to reverse over
200 health problems offering the benefits of dozens of medical books
with interactive cross-referenced text. You will enjoy reading about
real life patient success stories and hundreds of self-help tips
while 50 alternative therapies are explained in detail. Available in
bookstores and also on line.
Angel's Opinion: This is the most comprehensive and
authoritative work of its kind... a great all-purpose reference
book. If I had to choose just one book in my entire library and
discard the rest, this is the one I consider most essential.
ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO
by Burton Goldberg 9
This book tells how to reverse cancer using clinically proven
complementary and alternative therapies. It specifically discusses
Lung, Breast, Prostate, Colon, Bone, Lymphoma, Skin and Uterine
Cancer. It tells the truth about chemotherapy and how to overcome
its toxic effects while discussing how to prevent cancer if you are
predisposed to this deadly disease. Available in bookstores and also
Angel's Opinion: If I had cancer, this is the only book I'd
buy. Each of the first 23 chapters is dedicated to a different
doctor's protocol. By comparing protocols you can clearly see
patterns in what works for the patients of these doctors. But that's
not why I bought the book. The next 11 chapters clearly explain what
exactly cancer is, what causes it and how cancer politics have kept
you in the dark regarding successful alternative treatments. It
talks about nutrition and botanicals as cancer medicines. It
discusses approaches to immune stimulation and enhancing whole-body
metabolism for treating cancer. It lists physical and energy support
therapies for reversing cancer and contains a complete guide to
innovative anti-cancer substances and therapies. If your Oncologist
hasn't read this book -- find one who has or contact one of the 23
doctors listed. This information is too important to overlook.
NOURISHING TRADITIONS by Sally Fallon
â€œchallenges politically correct nutrition and the diet dictocratsâ€
by exposing the flaws in the USDA Food Pyramid and the truth about
cholesterol, synthetic vitamins and so-called healthy foods, such as
margarine, artificial sweeteners, salad oils, etc.
It brings to the forefront of healthy nutrition things like
organic butter, eggs, animal meats, healthy fats, vegetables and sea
salt. It is not only
chock full of delicious recipes but each chapter contains excellent
information about the vitamin and mineral content of each food along
with its health benefit and stories and anecdotes about how it was
used in the past and why there is a right and wrong way to use and
cook these foods. In
addition, the sidebars contain current event tidbits on the use of
these foods throughout the world, including government statistics on
health, longevity, dental decay, and disease.
It is full of multi-national studies proving that the
American Diet is not only detrimental to Americans but also to the
societies that it has inadvertently touched.
It offers the cook healthy solutions for dealing with modern
Angel's Opinion: Based on the findings of Weston A. Price,
DDS, this is the best cookbook I own.
It answers every question I ever had about the nutritional
value of any food or food substance, vitamin or mineral, including
superfoods. There is a
guide to natural sweeteners, a special section on feeding babies,
diet tips for pregnant women including a discussion on how oral
contraceptives should be avoided for six months prior to conception
because they deplete many nutrients, particularly zinc, the
My guess is that the common sense facts throughout this book
will blow your mind as they did mine.
EAT RIGHT 4 YOUR TYPE: The Individualized Diet Solution by
Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo
This book traces our ancestral bloodlines back to the
Neanderthal in 50,000 BC and shows how, through DNA testing, we have
unraveled some of the mysteries surrounding good health and the
origin of disease. It examines how blood type determines our
susceptibility to illness and discusses how different foods react in
the various blood groups. Ways to avoid many troubling health
problems are outlined in the four diets for the four blood groups
mentioned. It is a very interesting book that answers many questions
concerning allergy, weight gain, specific diseases, food
intolerances, vitamin and herbal supplementation, and why a diet
that works so well for one person, does not work at all for another.
Available in bookstores and also on line.
Angel's Opinion: This book, based on scientific
evidence, is extremely educational and very well written. A must for
all cooks, moms, and anyone with a health condition. I thoroughly
enjoyed reading it. Click here for an article on
The Link between
Cancer and Blood Type.
by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo 10
EAT RIGHT 4 YOUR TYPE: Complete Blood Type
"The A-Z Reference Guide for the Blood Type Connection to
Symptoms, Diseases, Conditions, Vitamins, Supplements, Herbs and
Foods". This book consists of three parts. Part One consists
of four chapters explaining blood group science. Part Two
contains an index of medical conditions, complete with a general
description of each, symptoms, risk factors, causes, therapies,
references and related topics. Part Three is a listing
of blood group protocols that fall into three categories: Medical &
Health, Food Base, and Supplement Base. Available in bookstores and
also on line.
Angel's Opinion: This book is well organized and
easy to understand. I believe this is due to the story telling
ability of Dr. D'Adamo who paints vivid word pictures to help
demystify this very complicated subject. It's a handy reference tool
and an absolute must for anyone with a health condition. Click to

NUTRITION AND PHYSICAL DEGENERATION by Weston
A. Price, DDS 10
Written in 1939 with its 15th printing in 2003, this well
documented and meticulously researched book was way ahead of its
time. Dr. Price, a dental surgeon, traveled the globe in
search of primitive societies to try and find out why these peoples
had near perfect teeth, bone structure and health with little or no
dental caries, disease or crime in spite of having no knowledge of
oral hygiene, no hospitals, and no jails. He photographed these
primitives before and after being touched by modern civilization and
discovered that the greater the percentage of modern food they
consumed, the greater the percentage of not only tooth decay they
experienced but also degenerative disease and moral degeneration as
well. He documented in detail through photographs and
statistical research that when teeth are decaying, other things are
going wrong in the body. For example, he noticed that
childbirth among the primitives was virtually effortless, occurring
in under an hour +/- with practically no labor. Once they
began eating the modern foods of white flour, sugar, vegetable fats,
canned goods, and polished rice, pregnancy became more difficult.
Long hard labors became an issue, and in the span of just one
generation, deformities began to manifest. So great was the
curse of the white mans food on these primitives that entire
societies headed toward extinction in just two to three generations.
Dr. Price's findings led him to careful
analysis of the primitive food supply, which he found rich in
vitamins and minerals, particularly in a substance he could not
identify -- the "X" factor. He regularly collected samples of
these "X" factor foods for testing from the places where he had
traveled. He treated his most difficult patients with some of
these samples and witnessed astonishing recoveries, some detailed in
this book. Since every conclusion brought with it more
questions, he collaborated with other scientists from around the
globe to find out how present and past research fit his findings.
Several studies referenced in this book had been done on heredity,
environment and vitamin deficiencies resulting in various
hypothetical conclusions. As it turned out, his research
provided the vital link that tied all the other studies together.
Proof of the hypothesis, "We are what we eat." Under More
Story Links, click Nutrition and Physical Degeneration to view a
more detailed report complete with photos.
Angel's Opinion: In this book Dr. Weston A. Price
dedicates one chapter to each of the 14 primitive societies he
studied. Many of these primitives are no longer in existence
today. The remaining 15 chapters delve into the reasoning
behind his various conclusions and other additional scientific
research that had been done. He includes 154 photographic
illustrations, many of which contain at least 4 pictures mostly of
primitives before and after being exposed to the foods of commerce.
Even the skeptic will find these pictures amazing. In these
primitive groups, the loss of dental health and loss of immunity
occurred promptly after the change in nutrition was established and
existed only during the period of the change. Immunity was
reestablished with the return to the original nutrition of the
tribe. Through his research and photographs, Dr. Price
provides a glimpse of the dental tragedy that ushered in the
disappearance of many of these primitive peoples. The 14
chapters on the individual societies are a difficult read but the
rest of the book goes relatively smoothly and is well worth the
What I find most interesting is, if this
information was known in 1939, why have we not done something about
it? This book emphasizes the need to pay more attention to the
quality of our food supply, yet we still tend to substitute
synthetic products for Natures foods... especially vitamins.
Dr. Price proved that "in proportion as man has learned to modify
Natures foods, he has degenerated... Life in all its fullness
is Mother Nature obeyed.
WHOLE-BODY DENTISTRY by Mark A.
Breiner, D.D.S. 10
This book, given to me by my dentist,
introduces a whole new approach to dentistry --viewing the mouth as
an indicator of overall health and a link to illnesses in other
parts of the body. It discusses the physical and energetic
relationship between your mouth and body and how dental procedures
such as root canals and amalgam fillings can affect your
physiological systems â€“ including the immune, cardiovascular, and
neurological systems. A must read for anyone who has health
problems that have not found relief through traditional or
Because I was diagnosed with mercury toxicity, I was extremely
interested in the procedure of removing mercury fillings without
causing more toxicity. This book does an excellent job of
explaining exactly how the process should evolve and why. I
also found my dentist's overview of my x-rays fascinating as he
pointed out phantom teeth that had been removed in childhood but the
body was holding their energy signatures as if they were still
there. He called these areas "cavitations" and directed me to the
appropriate section of the book discussing this phenomenon. Here are
five pages from
Chapter Two that I feel explain the philosophy
behind this new "physiological approach" to dentistry.
ROOT CANAL COVER-UP by
Dr. George Meinig
Mark A. Breiner, DDS, mentions this book as a
good read in his book, Whole Body Dentistry, above. He reports that
this book extensively covers the problems associated with multiple
metals in the mouth as well as astounding research detailing
problems with bacterial infections and energy blockages resulting
from root canals. Dr. Weston Price's research is discussed in detail
along with Dr. Percey Howe and Dr. Reinhold Voll.
>Angel's Opinion: I have not read this book so I can
not offer judgment but, if I were considering root canal surgery, I
would want to know all possible side effects or consequences. This
book offers extensive research into this area and is certainly worth
INTO THE LIGHT by Dr. William Campbell Douglass, MD
Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI),
also known as
was studied at Hahnemann Hospital in the 1940s and is now used in
Europe, Russia and America. This book explains what it is and how it
works to kill viruses in just a few days, even antibiotic resistant
strains--although they may take two or three treatments. When used
with photo-oxidation it can bathe the heart and internal organs in
oxygen with virtually no side effects thus strengthening the entire
immune system and allowing the body to heal itself. This life-saving
treatment has saved hundreds from near death. There is a list of
practitioners in the back of the book. Available from Second Opinion
Angel's Opinion: I had UBI done once for the flu. Since my
full-time job is very demanding and takes clear concentration, I
couldn't afford to be out sick. So I drove 2.5 hours to the closest
practitioner getting worse by the minute. I knew I would be a basket
case by the end of the day and brought a friend just in case I
couldn't drive myself home. The procedure took about 1/2 hour.
Within 20 minutes my sore throat was gone. By the time I left
the office my headache was gone. By the next day I had no signs of a
temperature and was back to normal. I would seek out this treatment
for any illness that could possibly be caused by a virus or
bacteria. I know of no other books that cover this subject in such
SAY GOODBYE TO ILLNESS by Dr. Devi
S. Nambudripad DC, LAc, RN, PhD 10
discusses every aspect of allergy from A to Z and details an
acupuncture technique called NAET (Nambudripad's Allergy
Elimination Technique) that completely eliminates
allergies in a surprisingly short period of time. This technique was
discovered by Dr. Nambudripad who has filled the book with many case
histories of all kinds of diseases stemming from allergy that were
cured using this simple and safe technique. She also discusses how
allergies impact the various bodily systems such as respiratory,
digestive, circulatory, and genito-urinary as well as the joints and
skin. Available in bookstores and also on line.
Angel's Opinion: This is the
best book I have ever read on allergy. It is a must read for anyone
who is plagued with allergies of any kind. I personally used NAET to
cure many of my own allergies and can personally attest to the fact
that NAET works! To read more
WHAT YOUR DOCTOR MAY NOT TELL YOU ABOUT FIBROMYALGIA
by Dr. R. Paul St. Amand and Claudia Marek 9
This book differs from others about
because it offers a treatment for reversing this inherited disease.
It not only thoroughly explains the disease itself and what causes
it (with whole chapters dedicated to clusters of symptoms such as
fatigue, irritable bowel and bladder, vulvodynia and skin
irritations) but it also includes extensive information about
hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), a common concurrent condition, and a
special diet that controls it. The final section of the book
includes daily coping strategies. The appendices contain: a 20-page
section of resources for fibromyalgia and its related syndromes
including phone numbers and web sites of local and national
organizations, videotapes and recommended books; a 40-page glossary
of medical terms related to fibromyalgia and common medications for
this disease; a list of the most common natural substances to avoid;
and a technical appendix for physicians and other medical
professionals with journal references. Available in bookstores and
also on line.
There exists an
effective, safe, inexpensive treatment for fibromyalgia using a very
old medication called guaifenesin. Here is an explanation of the
Guaifenesin Protocol used by Dr. Amand.
DEATH BY MEDICINE
by Gary Null, PhD 9
Written in collaboration with several doctors,
this book reveals closely guarded secrets about the relationship
between the pharmaceutical industry, the government, and the medical
research establishment. It discloses how drug companies are
paying our legislators, TV and radio stations, schools, and news
outlets to keep information about dangerous medications from the
public. It shows statistically that more Americans die each
year at the hands of medicine than all US casualties in the World
Wars and Civil War combined and contains eye-opening information on
why it is more advantageous to the allopathic doctor to choose
treatment over prevention, when prevention is possible.
Chock full of
statistical research and factoids, this book is a must read for
anyone who has ever wondered, "If alternative therapies work, then
why doesn't everyone know about them?". You owe it to yourself
to find out.
MORE NATURAL CURES REVEALED
by Kevin Trudeau 8
This book finally exposes the truth about the unspoken connections
between certain government agencies and big pharma and the reasons
behind why this has remained a well kept secret for so long.
It details the innate problems with the structure of our
governing bodies and pinpoints the inconsistencies within these
structures that permit the Gestapo-like activities that have been
occurring for decades.
It reports on many of the alternative healthcare options often
overlooked by allopathic doctors and promotes working with a
licensed practitioner to find and treat the cause of a medical
problem instead of using medication to treat the symptoms.
In short, this is a political expose that promotes freedom of
choice for health care in America.
with promotions for the author's books and website, the underlying
health information is right on target. In all honesty, there is
nothing in this book that is not common knowledge in deep
alternative circles, which is probably why there has been such a
concerted effort to discredit the author and his work.
Although I disagree with the manner in which Kevin Trudeau
presents his information, I must applaud his courage and tenacity.
The "establishment" has successfully bullied too many doctors
into silence. I run
across this all the time when trying to recruit speakers for my
Alternative Medicine Conference. There
is only so much they are willing to say in public for fear of
retribution. Too many
doctors have felt the sting of losing hospital privileges or
enduring the negative publicity that comes with a staged lawsuit.
I personally know of one woman who put four alternative
doctors out of business in the state of Pennsylvania by pretending
to be a patient and then staging lawsuits.
One of the biggest criticisms of Kevin Trudeau is that he is
not a doctor. Trust me,
a doctor could never speak the truth like this and still remain a
doctor... not in this country.
VACCINES: ARE THEY REALLY SAFE AND EFFECTIVE?
by Neil Z. Miller
This handbook evaluates each vaccine for
safety, efficacy, and long-term effects while discussing uncensored
data many doctors don't even know. It includes information on all
recommended childhood shots, anthrax, smallpox, and flu plus recent
studies and numerous case histories detailing vaccine-induced damage
to children, pinpointing exact conditions that may put a child at
risk. It includes information on vaccine ingredients, natural versus
artificial immunity, and provides data documenting correlations
between MMR and autism, polio vaccines and cancer, the hepatitis B
vaccine and multiple sclerosis, the Hib vaccine and diabetes, and
much more. It also outlines current vaccine laws and offers parental
options to "mandatory" shots.
It includes 30 charts and graphs plus more than 900 citations.
Angel's Opinion: I have not read
this book but it is highly recommended by Nutritionist Patrick
Holford of Wellness Advisor in his August 2003 issue.
>COMPLEMENTARY CANCER THERAPIES
by Dan Labriola, N.D. 8
This book discusses in detail what to expect
from conventional cancer treatment.
It offers guidelines on how to choose a doctor, who should be
on your team, and how to cope.
It discusses common chemotherapy drugs and their side
effects, antitumor antibiotics, antimetabolites, biological agents,
hormonal agents, plant-derived agents, radiation and surgery.
It also takes a naturopath's look at how alternative
medicines can help.
Although it does not go into detail about any alternative cancer
treatments, it does list a few of the most well known alternative
This book is a
must for anyone who has decided to use conventional cancer therapy,
if for no other reason than to gain a better understanding of the
various drug choices and their side effects.
Some drugs are easier on the system than others and some
herbs can help while others can harm. This book discusses when and
how to blend in alternatives to ease your suffering.
LIVING WITH JUVENILE DIABETES: A Practical
Guide for Parents by Victoria Peurrung
This book is truly what the title says,
providing all the information you need to know about Type I diabetes
in order to intelligently manage it. It discusses various
treatments, testing, injecting, supplies, and gives advice on how to
handle complications. It offers helpful tips on how to deal with
school, camps, child care, sick days, exercise, nutrition, and
cooking. It even offers scrumptious recipes and sample menus for the
whole family. There are photocopy-ready instruction sheets for
teachers and baby-sitters and the last two chapters delve into the
latest research, including inhaled insulin. This is a must read for
a caregiver of a newly diagnosed Type I diabetic.
Angel's Opinion: Since 95% of the
in this country is adult-onset or Type II diabetes, this book truly
fills a void since it concentrates on the remaining 5% that have
Type I. It has excellent food charts detailing the carbohydrate,
protein, fat, caloric, fiber and sugar content of foods. Even though
I am not diabetic, I like the food substitution list and the food
equivalencies chart and some of the deserts really caught my eye.
The nutrition section of this book is a good read for all diabetics
and perhaps anyone trying to cut down on their sugar intake without
sacrificing too much.
THE MERCURY IN YOUR MOUTH
by Lydia Bronte, Ph.D. 6
This well-documented book brings to the
forefront vital information concerning silver amalgam fillings. The
truth is told in under 135 easy to read pages with an additional 55
pages of Appendix documentation. Almost every chapter ends with a
Summary of the information discussed in the chapter. It details the
who, what, where, when, how and why of this controversial subject.
It suggests physiological and neurological symptoms of mercury
toxicity, tests to determine if you are mercury toxic and correct
procedures to detoxify. There are even lists of dentists
knowledgeable about the safe removal of mercury fillings and
physicians who know how to treat mercury toxicity. This book is a
must read for anyone suffering from unexplainable depression,
dizziness, headaches, irritability, lack of concentration, memory
lapses, nervousness, allergies, gingivitis, fatigue,
gastrointestinal illnesses, high blood pressure or kidney problems.
Available from Quicksilver Press (212) 423-3074 and also on
Angel's Opinion: This book is
well organized, easy to read and easy to understand. Upon completion
you have a very good idea of what to do if you think you may be
toxic and more importantly, how to go about correcting the problem.
It discusses the dangers of removing all your fillings in a short
time frame and precautions your dentist should take to prevent you
from inhaling the mercury vapors caused by drilling. Anyone with
silver fillings would benefit from reading this book.
Michael C. Goldman DDS has a very good web site dealing with
a variety of dental topics, including a detoxification protocol you
can bring to your dentist for safe removal of your mercury fillings.
BACTERIOLOGICAL WARFARE: A Major Threat
by Larry Wayne Harris, Ph.D.
This book provides
detailed information on the preparation and use of veterinary and
agricultural antibiotics for human use in crisis situations when
there may be a shortage of, or limited access to, pharmaceutical
supplies for human use.
It also offers other suggestions on what you can do to protect
yourself and your family in the event of biological warfare.
Dr. Harris discusses Terramycin-343 as his first choice
because it is a more broad-spectrum antibiotic but other antibiotics
are discussed also. He
says, these products come in powdered form and are a very effective
treatment for plague, cholera, typhoid fever, and even anthrax.
The actual number of daily doses varies depending on which
microbe an individual has been exposed to and he makes specific
recommendations in his book.
