I recommend "Natural Medicine 101"

Jeffrey Dach MD rates right near the top in my book. I read his newsletter, his website and his blog, and have referenced his publications related to my own condition and research into its particulars in my Credible Evidence Blog, and here and here. Now he has written a book. "Natural Medicine 101". It is available through Amazon or free in E form on the internet. So far I have read portions of particular interest and skimmed much more. I find the quality and clarity of his writing consistent and full of valuable, well researched and documented.
