Earl Mindell’s New Vitamin Bible
I am an herbalist that is constantly studying herbs and healing. Earl Mindell is a very good source for new facts. I have at least 3 other books by him. Found some in this book I hadn’t been been aware of before.
I had been told of the Herb Bible by a friend who even has a pocket version (I want that!) and I decided to buy one for my mom’s household. She was fascinated by it and spent a good portion of Christmas Eve reading it. I then perused it as well and it is a wonderful way to begin learning about herbs and their benefits, particularly in place of over the counter meds. We are a family of believers in natural remedies anyway, but had no nice, small carry along book to guide us better. Now we do! I am buying 3 or 4 more for myself and friends. And the best part of this book is that it also gives you warnings about certain herbs and when to consult your doctor if you are taking meds. THAT is priceless! One thing I would love to have in an herb book is a list of ailments and the herbs that help. For instance, in the glossary it would be nice to look up INFLAMMATION and find the page detailing which herb is helpful for that. But I am being picky. Perhaps I need a different book for that.
This little book truly is the HERB BIBLE and I use it all the time to educate myself as to the various natural remedies for healing oneself. Earl Mindell’s books are the best!!! I couldn’t recommend it higher!!! It truly is the BIBLE of herbal books!
All you ever wanted to know about herbs. What they are good for and how to use them effectively.
Knowledge is power … and if Earl Mindell has written it, you should be reading it … and reading it often!
Face the facts … prescriptions have become more than just expensive, they have become hazardous to your health! We see the commercials all the time … this pill will help treat your illness, though the side-effects may kill you! Natural medicines work … afteral, they were created by God, as was marijuana (anti-depressant) … but even natural medicines should never be abused.
I still have my old Mindells herb bible. It’s tatter, torn, and stained but its helped during my early years learning about holistic and natural ways to heal common ailments. This one is updated with new herbs and information. Wanna get the Vitamin version next
This is a good update on the older version. I would have liked it better if the quality of the cover had been as durable as the first edition.
I usually don’t write book reviews but this one is an exception. The author Earl Mindell has an ensychlopedia of information about herbal and traditional remedies. The best part is he goes into depths as to what these herbs do and how they can heal you. I refer to this book a lof and it is an important part of my kitchen books. I recommend it.
This book is very clear and detailed, it a great guideline to better health , mental sharpness whole body strength.Very pleased the purchase was made.
I’ve had Mindell resource books in the past; but have loaned them out and never got them back. This is an excellent, quick reference I will keep with my recipes to plan meals and manage my supplements. It is smaller than previous ones I’ve bought; but it serves my purposes. Probably won’t be tempted to loan this one out.
