Nationally syndicated columnist and America's leading authority on health and nutrition, Jean Carper now turns her attention to the public's increasing demand for medically proven natural cures. The first comprehensive guide to fully document the effectiveness of vitamins, minerals, herbs and other natural substances, Miracle Cures is backed by the latest scientific findings of leading scientific institutions, research centers and medical journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Written in the same lively style that has made Jean Carper's previous bestsellers so accessible, Miracle Cures also includes awe-inspiring cases of medically verified natural cures. The result is an essential resource for anyone who wants to make informed choices for their health, take charge of their well-being and live longer, healthier lives.

For a growing number of Americans, the time for alternative medicine has come . Miracle Cures, written by CNN's former senior medical correspondent, highlights several of the most exciting natural remedies currently under investigation. There's St. John's Wort (also called hypericum), which has proven effective in combating depression; gingko biloba, a circulation-enhancer that retards Alzheimer's and other age-related memory problems; grapefruit fiber, which combats cholesterol; and many others. All of the compounds and alternative treatments listed in Miracle Cures are regularly practiced in Europe, Asia, or both. So why aren't they used in the United States? Carper points out that since "nature owns the patent," there's little financial incentive for American pharmaceutical companies to investigate natural compounds. Secondly, most American doctors are simply unaware of the testing that has been done on these techniques; most research has been done by non-English speaking physicians and written up in foreign journals. Responsibly toting up the risks and benefits of each, Carper is hoping for a sensible integration of natural remedies into American medicine.From the Author:
