About the Authors
Author of more than thirty books, DR. MICHAEL T. MURRAY is regarded as one of the world’s top
authorities on natural medicine. An educator, lecturer, researcher, and health food industry consultant,
Murray also serves as the director of product development and education at Natural Factors, a major

DR. JOSEPH PIZZORNO is a leader in the field of natural medicine and cofounder of Bastyr
University, the first ever accredited, multidisciplinary university of natural medicine in the United States (and the English-speaking world). He is an international lecturer and ongoing contributor to magazines such as Natural Health, Better Nutrition, and Let’s Live.....

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
• 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.
