4.0 out of 5 stars Natural Stomach Care - Book Review,
Gongchao Yang (Jackson, MS USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Natural Stomach Care: Treating and Preventing Digestive Disorders with the Best of Eastern and Western Healing Therapies (Paperback)Digestive ailments, especially chronic conditions, are troublesome to millions of Americans. Without proper care and treatment, such ailments often reoccur and may persist for years. Dependence on prescription drugs for long periods of time can be difficult for many patients. An alternative to prescribed drugs for treating ailments of the stomach has been the application of "natural remedies." The "natural" alternative to traditional medicine has for centuries proven to be an effective cure for many stomach and digestive ailments. The use of "natural remedies" often eliminates for the user the need for drugs and possibly surgery. Dr. Anil Minocha, in his book, Natural Stomach Care introduces to the reader a wide range of easy-to-follow and effective therapies. Both the medical doctor and the layman will find useful the health information discussed in Natural Stomach Care.
It is surprising to learn just how many folk remedies are available to the interested person. Most of these remedies have been utilized around the world for hundreds if not thousands of years. All the material in this comprehensive discussion of the subject has been presented in a well organized and easy to follow format. The author first wants us to have an understanding as to how the body functions including the digestive process of food, the importance of restful sleep, proper daily nutrition, the reduction of stress in our lives as well as other factors which, when taken together, all contribute to a health life style. The author uses his many years of practice and research as a gastroenterologist to highlight the many factors that contribute to the wellness of the human body. Dr. Minocha corrects misconceptions that many people have held for years about the proper care and feeding of the stomach. In addition, he suggests many useful "natural remedies" for such ailments as inflammatory bowel disease, gastric ulcers, intestinal gas, constipation and other common digestive disorders. In another chapter he introduces detoxification techniques which, when applied, clean the gut of all impurities. A process that uses "probiotics" in which helpful microorganisms are introduced and help to keep the digestive process "in balance." Throughout the book the author provides helpful information on his subject, describing in detail each problem and how to either treat the ailment or the preventive measures necessary to prevent it from occurring.
Natural Stomach Care is highly recommended for people who are experiencing problems with their stomach or digestive system and are interested in learning about and applying "natural remedies" as an effective treatment for such ailments. Persons who are presently free of digestive and stomach problems will also benefit by learning natural preventive measures that when applied, should keep the stomach and digestive system properly working throughout a lifetime. Natural Stomach Care is a worthwhile addition to all consumer health collections in health sciences libraries and as a consumer book for public libraries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Natural Stomach Cure,
Dr. John Mccollister (Daytona Beach, FL USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Natural Stomach Care: Treating and Preventing Digestive Disorders with the Best of Eastern and Western Healing Therapies (Paperback)Since I have suffered from digestive problems for a full decade, I had more than a passing interest in this book. After reading it, I put into practice some of Dr. Minocha's teachings. I can testify beyond any doubt, his counsel works. In my opinion, it is, by far, the most pragmatic book written on the subject. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent research, crystal-clear writing,
Matthew Hoffman (Albuquerque, NM United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Natural Stomach Care: Treating and Preventing Digestive Disorders with the Best of Eastern and Western Healing Therapies (Paperback)I'm a full-time health writer, and after 15 years in the business I've rarely come across a book that so perfectly combines medical findings with practical, easy-to-follow advice. Dr. Minocha is clearly an advocate of alternative styles of medicine, yet he approaches his topic with the eye of a scientist. When I want to know what something does, how it works, how to use it myself--the answers are here. This book rarely leaves my desk, and I expect I'll keep using it as a reference for years to come.
