About the Author

Dr. Michael T. Murray is a food industry consultant, and the medical editor of Natural Medicine Journal. He coauthored the Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine, which has sold more than 750,000 copies.


Naturopath Murray (The Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine) and Lyon (director, North American Diabetes Prevention and Reversal Initiative) argue that lifestyle and environmental factors are causing the explosion of diabetes in the American population and that, by following his program, readers can reduce the risk of developing the disease or even reverse its progress. Presented are their arguments for diabetes as the epidemic of the 21st century, as well as risk factors and prevention via nutrition, dietary supplements, and exercise. They also maintain that the best diet in the management of diabetes is their own rather than that of the American Diabetes Association. Diabetes monitoring and mainstream therapies are briefly covered, as are complications. Appendixes include specific recommendations for supplements and dosages, a daily eating plan with recipes, a hypoglycemia questionnaire, and a glycemic index. The complex explanations are at a sophisticated reading level, and evidence-based information is interspersed with highly suspect medical studies. No attention is given to working with one's physician, even when larger doses of niacin are suggested. While the authors include some valuable material, too much of it is misleading and not founded on solid research; patients who follow the advice on supplements here without consulting their doctors may find themselves in serious health trouble. Diana Guthrie's Alternative and Complementary Diabetes Care is a far superior choice. Not recommended.-Janet M. Schneider, James A.
