Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine

 The Encylopedia of Natural Medicine is a classic reference guide in the field. The recently released third edition is revised and expanded to include the latest cutting-edge natural therapies for the most common ailments.  Murray and Pizzorno present an evidence-based approach to wellness, based on firm scientific findings. They aim to dispel the notion that natural medicine isn’t “real medicine,” offering examples and studies that show the efficacy of a holistic approach to patient care. This book grounds the reader in the seven major tenets of natural medicine and covers important topics in health care today, including cancer prevention, detoxification, and internal cleansing.

Are Your Prescriptions Killing You?

You most certainly know someone whose life depends on the prescription drugs they take: it may be your husband, who takes sleeping pills to counteract the anxiety his heart medications cause him, or it may be your aging father, who takes upwards of twenty pills a day for everything from arthritis to high blood pressure. But we’ve all read the headlines: prescription drugs can kill you. If that’s the case, why are so many Americans, particularly those sixty and older, given so many pills, with no regard to how they interact with one another?

The Portland Fluoride Debate--an hour-long special

 On the eve of Portland City Council's vote to fluoridate the water supply, the issue has divided Portland's residents.  Is fluoride effective?  Is it safe?  Is there a significant difference between naturally occurring fluoride and the form that is used in tap water?   Is putting fluoride in the water the best way to promote its application?  Should we be putting medications, however effective and safe, in the public water supply?  Today's guests,  Kylie Menagh-Johnson (Everyone Deserves Healthy Teeth Coalition) and Dr. Paul Connett (Fluoride Action Network), are here to answer these questions from both sides of the fluoride divide.

There’s plenty of practical information, like how to overcome insomnia without drugs, how to combat snoring, how to encourage young children to get to sleep and, perhaps most useful, how to bet successfully on professional football games: our circadian rhythms favor West Coast teams over East Coast teams on Monday nights. This is one book that will not put you to sleep.” (Publishers Weekly )
