With the flu going around we've had a couple calls from friends asking for advice. We have a few resources that we prefer for referencing nutritional healing practices that I thought I would share them with you today.
The first one is Prescription for Nutritional Healing by Balch. This book is our most referenced resource. I appreciate it because it's factual and not philosophical. I've come across other books that start you out with bizarre philosophies about how the full moon makes you more spiritual and the book tends to be full of advice that I have to wonder about. I like to stick to the facts and use my own biblical worldview. The nice thing about PfNH is that it will tell you what each vitamin or herb does and recommended quantities. It's just a reference book.
Earl Mindell's Herb Bible and Vitamin Bible are a couple other references that we have. I like to have several around so that I can cross reference and double check.
We also have Shonda Parker's books and use them as well. Her titles are:
- Naturally Healthy Pregnancy (just planning ahead)
- Mommy Diagnostics
The Naturally Healthy Family's Guide to Herbs and Whole Foods for Health and
- Naturally Healthy Woman
