A "radical" approach to holistic healing that examines the root causes and cures for ailments such as Alzheimer's disease, breast cancer, and heart attacks - Offers cutting-edge detoxification and draining therapies to address the tremendous chemical onslaught of modern life - Explains the profound health problems caused by dental amalgams, vaccinations, antibiotics, cosmetics With the historic use of toxic mercury amalgam fillings, excessive courses of antibiotics, damaging childhood vaccines, and the many industrial pollutants and chemicals that have been spread into our air, water, and food over the past century, general holistic health guidelines are simply no longer adequate for most people. Only through radical measures--that is, getting to the true root or underlying cause of disease--can effective healing occur. In Radical Medicine, naturopathic physician Louisa Williams describes how to treat these and other modern-day "obstacles to cure," in order to ensure against future degenerative disease and achieve the optimal health that is our birthright. Examining the many health problems triggered by dental amalgams and poor dentistry, Dr. Williams explains that our teeth are focal points for health issues that arise elsewhere in the body. She explores the impact of vaccinations, the excessive use of antibiotics, and the chemical-laden products used as health and beauty aids--which are linked to Alzheimer's disease, heart attacks, and breast and other cancers--and provides information on cutting-edge detoxification treatments as well as drainage and nutritional therapies. A practical guide for practitioners and patients alike, Radical Medicine offers a wealth of holistic, natural therapies for overcoming what is poisoning us and our world so we can achieve optimal health and well-being.

""Radical Medicine" has set the standard in holistic medicine. Every important issue has been identified. What a magnificent book."--Harvey Bigelsen, M.D., author of Doctors Are More Harmful Than Germs, founding member of the American Holistic Medical Association
An EXCELLENT book which is well written and very well referenced. It had a lot of information from toxins, to everyday food, to cosmetics, GM food, antibiotics, dental amalgalms (she seems to go on a little more than I like about the matter, but I can still tolerate that) through to dental foci affecting sinuses and ear infections, vaccinations, alternative healings - just to name some headings. The book taught me a lot about food, cosmetics and about dental foci - how it affects one's health and why not everyone heals at the same rate. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is interested in "holistic healing" - healing as a whole.
