Divine Prescription & Science of Health is another encyclopaedia of definition of health conditions, their possible causes and a range of treatments from the natural world. Its easy to read and cost is kept down because there are no glossy coloured pictures. It draws on creditable research and the anecdotes are brief, to the point and helpful. Steps to Life, Australia

I found many helpful health recommendations and studies in this book. My one frustration is, as another reviewer states, the lack of a good index. Overall, the book has excellant information. Many thanks to the author.

This book is ... a great book! I have the 95/97 edition. I have yet to find anything in it that I think is not true. At one time I had compulsion to chew/crunch on ice. It was like I HAD to chew it. My ice maker could not keep up with me. I happened to be reading in this book to find info about something else and read about the condition called PICA, a condition causing you to like to eat dirt, chew ice, etc. It was a lack of iron that was causing me to want the ice! I bought some iron right away & almost immediately, within a day or so at the most, I noticed a difference and no longer desired the ice. I only wish I had learned earlier as I think I'm now ... several years down the line ... paying for the ice crunching in repair of my teeth. NOT GOOD!
However, there is one thing that frustrates me immensely about the book. The index is next to worthless. MANY, and I mean VERY MANY things are not in the index AT ALL. They may be mentioned in the book & you happen to see it but look in the index and it's not there. There are several things I have noted/added in my index because I knew I might just need to find it again & the index would be of no use.
I don't know if the index has been fixed in the newer editions, but if not .... that's NOT a good thing.
That said, I DO like the book,I still use it often, but ... if something is not mentioned in the index you basically have no hope of finding it even though it may actually be in the book.
I do hope they'll fix it if they haven't already. I'd love to hear from someone at TEACH if they have. To me it would actually be worth buying a new book!
