American Indian Healing Arts: Herbs, Rituals and Remedies for Every Season of Life

When my sister-in-law returned from a trip to her native Dominican Republic, she told me that she hadn’t felt well while staying at her Mother’s farm up in the mountains. “What did you do?” I asked knowing the closest pharmacy (and town) was an hour away. She told me she did what Native Americans have […]

Cancer and Natural Medicine: A Textbook of Basic Science and Clinical Research

In the preface of this book, the author, John Boik, states that he had written the book because he had looked for a book like it and it did not exist. I know of no other book like it, because it has undertaken to critically describe what we know scientifically about the uses of natural […]

Alternative Healthcare A Comprehensive Guide

This book was somewhat of a shock to me because the title is so misleading. Instead of “Alternative” Healthcare: A Comprehensive Guide, it should be titled the Skeptics Guide to Alternative Healthcare. The author, Jack Raso,states his position very clearly in the introduction: “Since I began studying mystical healing in 1989, I have reached four […]

I would like to introduce you to an extraordinary series of books by Ceanne DeRohan. First, note, that these books are channeled, yet are remarkably consistent in their style and message.

Nine Faces of Christ: Quest of the True Initiate

This re-publication of Nine Faces of Christ: Quest of the True Initiate, first published in India in 1972 is being reviewed because of the applicability of the contents to all of us. This is not the literal story of the historical Christ, it takes place in 57BC, although it could easily be. It is the […]

Spontaneous Healing

Andrew Weil, MD once again has produced a thoughtful, useful and challenging book. That is what I like about his books, I always go away with something to chew upon and contemplate. Spontaneous Healing is chock full of testimonials about spontaneous healing and useful prescriptions for healing a variety of ailments. Dr. Weil, once again, […]

The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

The honorific Rimpoche means “precious one.” And the essence of that honorific explains why I am reviewing The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. It has had many prestigious reviews in the past and all were impressive. I cannot add to those accolades, but as I read this book I was reminded of how seldom […]

The Boy who Saw True

The original publishing date of The Boy Who Saw True is 1953 and there is actually no author. What is the world am I doing reviewing such an old book? And by an anonymous author? And what does this have to do with medicine? This book is being reviewed because I and my close friends […]
