4-0 out of 5 stars Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements
I know there has been a lot of criticism to this book since many say that Lyle has ties to Usana. If Lyle wants to sell his book, why would he put in the book that he works with Usana, Douglas Laboratories, Life Extensions Foundations and Source Naturals, knowing that there are people who are going to think differently after reading the book. If Lyle was interested in the money of selling the book, he wouldn't have written that information in there. Plus, if Usana or Douglas Laboratories was paying Lyle money to put their products as top of the line, why would he say he works with them? Wouldn't that cause a problem with trusting the book in general?I think he wrote it down because he takes pride in the companies he works with. This is just my opinion.There is this document posted by Melaleuca called, "Getting to the bottom of the Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements."Melaleuca critiques the book on six pages.Anyone who has questions about the blending standards, or about the book in general should read it.

5-0 out of 5 stars guide for the rest of us
Most of people don't have enough time to compare every supplements in the market nor enough knowledge to know what our body really need. What if some experts choose vitamins and minerals in perfect combination, put them into one single package and give you and say all-you-need-is-this? Isn't that be great? What's good about this book is you can save your time and money to know which supplements are good for you. If you were me, you don't wanna spend rest of your life to find out which supplements are good and which are bad. Save time, save money, save yourself. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great information...
This book has great information about all types of minerals and vitamins.I had a hard time putting the book down.I learned so much more about the minerals and vitamins and what doses you should be using.Now I know how much my body needs of certain vitamins.

3-0 out of 5 stars Careful - this book isn't as neutral as the author claims it to be
If you read this book you will be given lots of evidence and independent studies on the various benefits of vitamins and minerals.But while this book claims to be neutral and balanced on the good and bad of each vitamin, the author does leave out a variety of studies that have cast doubt on the benefits of "mega-doses" of various vitamins and minerals.
5-0 out of 5 stars Looking for a great book with gobs of information?
Looking for a great book with gobs of information? Look no further! This book explains what each supplement is used for and the doses to take for specific diseases or just for optimal health. Perhaps the best thing about this book is that it lists information about adverse results if too much of a supplement is taken. I refer to this book time and time again. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book on Vitamins for a Healtier Life-The Proto-Wicca Herbal Primer
This paperback is filled with so many great vitamin facts.It's still the best book on utilizing vitamins and herbs ,for optimum daily health.Calling it the 'Vitamin Bible',was a bold and well-justified title.Nicholaus Culpepper compiled a massive tome on herbs,some three centuries eariler.Culpepper realized the benefits of using the herbs of our earth.He also realized the self-empowerment ,of fellow humans connecting with our natural world.He printed biblical passages inside,to leasen the concerns over any 'earth-magick', being revealed in his magnum opus.I think there are alot of neo-pagans out-there,who first used this book as a herbal primer .The original 'Vitamin Bible' was published in 1979.It's funny because many of the old hippies turned born-again christians reached-out to this book for 'healing wisdom'.It rode the high-tide,along side of the 'Dianetics-Scientology' books. It's still a great reference, for anyone looking for an introduction on herbs and vitamins,and a reawakening for all Western-world people.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide for Health
I bought this book last week and it's excellent value for money.It has all the information about vitamins and herbs; it gives recommendations as well as warnings; advice about specific ailments, and so much more.I was surprised at the depth of information given.For example, my doctor told me that the herb known as horsetail helped halt osteoporosis when taken along with calcium.He also recommended boron.Nowhere else have I found confirmation of that information but this book mentions both. Unfortunately, you will not find horsetail listed in the index.That is the only complaint I have about the book that, occasionally, just occasionally, something was not listed in the index that was referred to in the text.If you care about your health, I recommend it.It's a no-nonsense book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Information

4-0 out of 5 stars Out of Date?
This five year old PDR Family Guide to Nutritional Supplements, first edition, Dec. 2001, is an excellent consise book and easy to read. However it is out of date when compared with PDR Health on-line. To get started this book is good. To get the latest information from PDR one has to go on-line and combining the two can be confusing. I'll not order until the second edition is released.

5-0 out of 5 stars I use it in my healing practice, and nursing practice
Note:First of all, there are 2 natural remedy PDRs, one for Nutritional rRemedies and Supplements, and another specifically for Herbal Remedies.You will NOT find herbal info in the nutritional PDR, nor nutritional supplements in the Herbal PDR.
5-0 out of 5 stars Brim Full of Information
Tired of getting your supplement information from the vitamin shop clerk? This is state of the art stuff. Finally here is a book that both the lay person and the physician can safely turn to. The author has no axe to grind. He neither overstates nor understates, but is carefully objective in his presentation and allows the evidence to speak for itself. Dr. Hendler brings to his subject an open mind, wide ranging intelligence, and a rigorous training in all of the relevant disciplines. He refuses to be a shill either for entrenched medical orthodoxy or starry eyed alternative approaches. The result is a cornucopia of information. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great book
I love this book. Lots of great info.
5-0 out of 5 stars The ONLYreference you will every need!
Simply put, I have used this incredibly thorough book like a health and nutritional "bible". I have studied nutrition and supplements and have found the information presented to be accurate, concise, easy to understand and it covers virtually every topic imaginable. If you have any health concerns, it offers sound natural advice as well as supplemental information, pros and cons and warnings as well (which many books fail to deliver). You will not be disappointed. I would highly recommend this for every family library!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have For Any Supplement/Altern. Medicine Aficionado!
I manage "Vitamin" store for a large, "Health" chain. In the past year and a half, I've learned so much about vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, and food concentrates. I've used amazon.com to buy DOZENS of books that pertain to my job. But you know what? Not a day goes by where I don't pick up this book.

1-0 out of 5 stars Outdated and Useless
A lot of the percursors mentioned in this book, namely androstenedione, are no longer legally available in the U.S.

5-0 out of 5 stars I tested prior to takingandro and after!!!!!
The advice given is worth listening to. I did. I am 58 and tested prior to the use of Androstenedione and after, The results were great. I was at the lowest level of testosterone to start and after 6 months of 50mg of Ando per day, It was raised the middle level, Just where I wanted to be. L-Glutamine and Creatine are other supplements to be considered for older men, When used in correct doses and exercise bring good results. I have more studies on my website. Roger Mason, a Scientist has other good books on Amazon check them out.

4-0 out of 5 stars Super Book on Super T
This is an excellent presentation, aimed at a lay audience, for the role of testosterone replacement and supplementation for male and female health. The author clearly knows the field backwards and forwards, and presents a balance view on each supplement and approach discussed. I also thoroughly agree with his view on weight training, which can be summed up in a question one posed to Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Ah-nold's answer: "Am I too old to train with weight?" "You're too old NOT to." Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Important Information About Treatment for Heart Disease
The book logically presents information suggesting that there is a simple preventative treatment for heart disease.The author writes to the lay person, explaining the lack of information supporting the status quo - the supposedly heart-healthy low fat diet - and supporting his homocysteine hypothesis.The only short-coming of the book is in the final chapters, where the author over reaches the information presented and suggests control of homocysteine levels may be a cure all for a wide variety of conditions, including alzheimers and cancer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Still reading
I just received my book and have yet to read more than 30 pages.So far, I find the material interesting and the arguments convincing.More than anything, I wanted to comment on the review by "a reader"...and his or her suggestion that readers would be better off skipping the book and instead seek established medical advice.Just go to quackwatch.com, well known debunker of less than scientific studies and bogus health and nutrition theories, and read how much credence they give to the same ideas espoused in this book.I would add, who better to present the medical evidence than McCully himself, who in 1969, first described the vascular pathology [of heart disease] as it relates to homocysteine levels?

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Worth The Money
This book does a disservice for those who really want helpful information about diet.. Dr. McCully did not do himself any favors by allowing his daughter, Martha, a Fashion Magazine Beauty writer to co-author it.. just very badly written.. and it undermines his medical crediblity..Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read Book
This is such a practical book and very helpful in the "where do I go if I have cancer" question.It gives you hope that cancer does not have to be a death bed. You do have alternatives to radiation and chemo. A must read book

5-0 out of 5 stars Getting tired of the "why" question...
As an "alternative" practitioner, it sure does get tedious to hear the question, "If it worked so well, then why isn't it all over the news and talked about by every M.D. and cancer researcher?"With the answer often being, "because it works too well and no real money can be made from it", most people grapple with the implications and ultimately write it off as some crazy conspiracy theory.This is the saddest, most frustrating, and even ridiculous type of road block to encounter when attempting to educate and help very ill people.It ultimately reveals the extent to which we've all been programmed (and I don't use that term lightly here).If you don't like the word "conspiracy", then use another, but it doesn't change the fact that a small group of greedy, powerful people are keeping vital health info from the rest of us for a variety of self-serving reasons.

Let me break it down for you, The book ledges Apricot Seeds containchemically locked(inert) amounts of Cyanide. Coincidently, cancer cells contain the magic protein that unlocks the Cyanide, in effect poisoning itself when it comes in contact with B17! It's a Miracle!

For each ailment, (acne, depression etc), it provides a list of vitamins that can help solve that ailment. In the second half it lists each vitamin and the amount to take.

Editorial Review

2-0 out of 5 stars Repetitive, un-referenced and narrow-minded
As a well-read reviewer on this subject, perhaps I am being overcritical.However, I found his testimony throughout the book that the only purpose of antioxidant consumption is to desotry fre radicals to be missing the point of good nutrition.He tries to extrapolate all benficial qualities of antioxidant rich food to their free radical scavenging abilities, which he does not back up with valid scientific sources.He neglects the vast epidemiological studies attributing better health from of consumption of antioxidant-rich foods because of their high fiber, unsaturdated fats, and low cholesterol.5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of info

5-0 out of 5 stars A phenomenal book on adjuvants in cancer therapy that is both conservative and very thorough
For a few decades a few scientists, some of them Nobel laureates, have believed that antioxidants may prevent and even help to treat cancer.Some of the ideas and clinical results have been very promising, but have not received the attention they deserve.Even worse, unsubstantiated and even false claims have been bandied about by some of those who claim to know everything about the antioxidants, which makes anyone who touches the subject appear to be disreputable.
4-0 out of 5 stars Useful information for co-doctoring
All cancer patients must co-doctor if they are going to survive.Most cancer doctors will warn against the harmful effects of taking antioxidants with chemotherapy or radiation treatments.This book completely debunks that medical school dogma.
5-0 out of 5 stars Must read for anybody with cancer
This book provides concise information regarding nutritional supplements that are effective in fighting cancer. I am battling Colon Cancer.Traditional medicine has its place, but the statistics were not very comforting.I thus have spent a great deal of time researching CAM (complimentary alternative medicines).One is quickly overwhelmed by the volume of (often contradictory) information available via web and books.For this, Dr. Moss is a goldmine.This book allows one to setup an affordable supplement program based on current scientific research, not quackery.I am happy to report that I have done very well with the chemo, and am confident that I will beat this cancer.Read more

Editorial Review

5-HTP is a naturally derived amino acid that has been shown in comprehensive studies to be safer than prescription drugs for the treatment of insomnia and depression, and can also be used for treating obesity, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, and premenstrual syndrome. It may prove to be more popular than St. John's wort for the treatment of depression and other serotonin-related conditions, as it's been shown to produce results in as little as two weeks, while the herb may take a month or longer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Advertised as New but was used
This is not a review but a critique. The book was advertised as new and I paid the "new" price, but it was used. There were several pages with penciled-in answers. The book itself is Murray's usual fine work.

2-0 out of 5 stars Incomplete and full of inconsistencies
While this book presents some interesting and possibly even helpful information, Murray destroys his credibility by his glaring contradictions.For example, on page 33 he says, "5-HTP...cannot be metabolized by the liver into kynurenine."Then on page 238 he says, "...if vitamin B6 levels are low, then more 5-HTP will get converted in the liver into another substance, kynurenine."5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Worry, Be Happy!

AWESOME book. I have been buying books, CD's, videos since amazon.com first came on line...and this is the 1st time I felt compelled to write a review.

I keep it at work & use it almost daily. I like the way you can find everything very quickly. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a lot of info.in one place. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars PERFECT
Book was written by a true professional. I like books that repeats itself a little bit in each chapter. This is how a true journalist writes a book. It is very important to go over in each chapter a little bit of what what taught in the previous chapter, this is called repetive learning and the learning will stick with you longer. Very good written book.

1-0 out of 5 stars stupid book and waste of money
Ok, Cichoke is not wrong. But here is the BIG problem. He repeats himself constantly. He cuts and pastes the same exact phrases over and over and over again on almost every page. The sloppiness and pure laziness of this book defy the mind. It is immoral to say so little and repeat it so often to make a book look big and fat. This entire book could have been written in about 20 pages. If I had seen this book before I would never have bought it. Buy any other book on enzymes. There is a caveat, if you can not remember what you have read as you turn from one page to another, then you will love this book. Every page is a near repeat of the page before. On the plus side, the info is accurate. I am not accusing him of being wrong. An additional problem is his zealous plugging for specific brands of enzymes, for no reason. Does he own stock? Lazy author, not much info, repetitious. Makes all health enthusiasts look like opportunists. SHAME!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Encyclopedia of Enzymes!
Dr. Cichoke does a great job of giving the basics of enzyme therapy, that is the therapeutic value of increasing the enzyme content of your diet. The book covers enzymes in natural foods, such as amylases (starch digesters) in beet juice, as well as powerful enteric-coated enzyme pills, such as Wobe Mugos. The book is divided into multiple sections. The first 88 pages are an introductory course in enzyme types (such as amylase, lipase, pancreatin, papain, etc), the function of enzymes, as well as an encyclopedia of "enzyme helpers" such as vitamins, etc, and their individual benefits. In fact, the information is extremely useful even for those not interested in enzyme therapy, particularly the tables listing various phytochemicals and their uses.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Gormley does it again!
I was impressed enough when Gormley came out a landmark book on DHA in 1999, but was equally impressed when he came out with this book, the most-concise, best-researched, most practical and powerful consumer book on brain-boosting I have ever read--and there are a number out at this point. Bravo!

I bought this book because I've been having a few senior moments (even though I'm not a senior!) I really liked it because it wasn't too technical and was easy to read. I like that the authors make recomendations for things to take and what they are. I recomend this book to anyone looking to boost their memory! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Incomplete
For a 270 page book that focuses on only one subject, "The Homocysteine Revolution" should have included much more iformation on what a person should DO in order to have favorable Homocysteine levels -- especially when it comes to diet and other lifestyle habits.
5-0 out of 5 stars status quo is a death sentence
Excellent exposition of a revolution in medical science that will eventually save millions of lives.Besides, even if he is only half-rght, how tough can it be to take a few vitamins, eat your vegetables, cut down on donuts and doritos, and take a walk (preferably uphill) once in a while?Moreover, it is also an excellent and clear example of the entrenched members of a group suppressing an idea that would take away their income derived from maintaining current orthodoxy.This has always been true and always will be true.Why?After all, if you had attended college and graduate school and trained for 5 or more years beyond that, and accumulated $200k+ in debt to become qualified to perform open heart surgery (or pick whatever profession or skill you like), and to be elevated into a position of seeming god-like powers, and to be worshipped by the multitudes, and to hear the exalted "Doctor" pronounced before your name (egos please stand up!) and then someone came along with a new theory that said your patient could take 10 cents worth of vitamins every day and avoid your surgical specialty, don't you think you'd be a little resistant too?It is easy to say, well they have no integrity. But look at your own life, how many times do you resist a better idea or a change because it will mean a loss of income or prestige or might be a blow to your pride or ego?Keeping your expensive house and your porsche and your kids in private school and your wife out of divorce court is an extremely powerful incentive to maintain the status quo which is a 7-figure income for a heart surgeon.Sad but true and the most basic of human nature, preserving your own life and lifestyle.However, in this case, belief in the cholesterol theory of heart disease and that surgery is the only solution has lead to millions of deaths and untold billions in costs, money that could have been invested in many, many other worthwhile projects.So, a word to the wise:keep your eyes and minds open and look for this anti-growth phenomena behind every bit of resistance to a new idea, especially if it will impact somebodies income or fame or power or status, the pride and ego hooks that most of us hang our self-respect and self-worth on.Remember, the same powerful motivator that would keep silent a group of highly-educated, very intelligent, hard working and dedicated individuals, is the same motivator that will push a 14-year-old to murder to join a gang, simple human pride and eqo with the desire to be liked and accepted by his peers.Only a few courageous individuals in history, and Kilmer McCully can be counted among them, have been willing to throw away their careers and sometimes their lives for the sake of the highest human values - honesty and integrity and fierce dedication to truth.McCully should win the nobel prize for his work.We should also, every day, give thanks to him and that handful who have brought us this far in human history with their courageous, daring work and vision.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for those wishing to prevent heart disease
One of the most tragic medical blunders of the past few decades is the incorrect dogma that coronary artery disease -- and resultant heart attacks -- are caused primarily by cholesterol and "artery clogging fat." Yes, arteries clogged with plaque (which contains cholesterol and fat) can result in heart attacks, but there is abundant evidence that the mere presence of cholesterol and fats in the body does not, by itself, cause arterial plaque to form. In fact, many slender people with "ideal" cholesterol levels have plaque-filled arteries which result in heart attacks.What medical dogma has overlooked until quite recently is that plaque builds up only in arteries that have been wounded in some fashion. Arterial plaque is, in essence a form of scab that forms on wounded arteries to protect us from internal hemorrhaging. What causes wounded arteries? One cause is free radicals, which can be combatted by antioxidants. But a second major cause of arterial wounding -- and arterial plaque -- was discovered by the author of this book, Dr. Kilmer McCully: elevated concentrations in the blood of a chemical called homocysteine. Homocysteine is a natural product of the metabolism af an amino acid called methionine and, therefore, our body's always contain some homocysteine. Vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid keep blood concentrations of homocysteine low enough to be safe. But deficiency of these vitamins can allow homocysteine to build up to concentrations that can wound our arteries and lead to the formation of arterial plaque -- which can eventually trigger a heart attack. Recent research has confirmed Dr. McCully's findings. If you want to understand the role of homocysteine in causing cardiovascular disease and resultant heart attacks -- and learn how to protect yourself from them -- I strongly suggest that you acquire and read this valuable book. ...

This book is enlighting when you talk about the heart. It offers a really simple and cost effective way to maintain and manage certain aspects of your heart. You can basically add magnesium into your diet and what your body doesn't use will be elminated naturally into your urine.
5-0 out of 5 stars A must read book

This books has lots of usefull information packed in.And is very easy to read.I bought this book to see if Q10 would be a usefull treatment for gum disease.One of the key factors that your body is low of Q10.After reading this book and using the tools I learned in there I have increased my health 10 fold.My gum disease has disapeared, I am more alert and sleep more sound.Things I didn't even think Q10 could help with.Not to mention the appearance of my skin overall.I think anyone that is looking to help increase their state of health should read this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Moderately useful to me...
I spoke with my physician yesterday about THE COENZYME Q10 PHENOMENA and he suggested the jury is still out on this topic.He says it probably won't hurt me but, it is relatively expensive and there is no real medical evidence that it does what some purport it does. Dr.Stephen Sinatra has an entirely different take on the topic so if you want to know more his experiences with patients his book is the place to begin.Sinatra is a cardiologist, but in my experience they don't necessarily know more about high blood pressure than an doctor of internal medicine (my doctor).Apparently, the some of the chemicals that show up in blood work that can be interpreted as "you just had a heart attack" can also show up for other reasons.
5-0 out of 5 stars Literally a lifesaving book.
Coenzyme Q10 (often abbreviated as CoQ10) is essential for human life. Itcatalyzes the formation and utilization of energy in every human cell.Fortunately, our bodies manufacture CoQ10. Unfortunately, some people donot manufacture enough CoQ10 to keep them healthy, especially as they growolder. Research has shown that deficiency of CoQ10 is the major cause ofcardiomyopathy, and congestive heart failure and these diseases can oftenbe cured by CoQ10 supplementation. Even many heart transplant candidateshave no longer needed a heart transplant after supplementation with CoQ10.Now it has been found that CoQ10 can also prevent -- and, sometimes, evencure -- cancer, as well a variety of other diseases. Dr. Stephen Sinatra --a board-certified cardiologist -- is a world-renowned expert on CoQ10 andits health benefits. I beg your to buy and read this book and heed Dr.Sinatra's information and advice. ... Read more
