Natural Remedies That Really Work : A New Zealand guide - What medical research actually says about natural health products and therapies

Author(s): Shaun Holt


Does echinacea really help prevent and reduce the duration of colds? Are Omega-3 fatty acids the cure-all they're cracked up to be? What's the truth about folic acid and aging?

In a world that's besieged by extravagant claims for an avalanche of natural remedies, who should we believe, and how can we get the information we need to make the right choices? The answer is to read this book. A surprising number of natural remedies are the subject of high-quality clinical research, which is published in top international medical journals such as 'The Lancet' and the 'New England Journal of Medicine'. 'Natural Remedies that Work' summarises and evaluates the most important and interesting research - from antioxidants to yoga - and advises on the application and dosage of treatments and remedies. Organised according to the body's systems (for example cardio-vascular or musculo-skeletal) for ease of use, this groundbreaking book by a medical doctor rises above uninformed debate and entrenched positions to reveal the simple truth of what works and why.
