Media attention and comments

Since in the early 80 century began to study natural therapy, Chinese medicine and homeopathy, I was looking for a book like this. As a student, such a discussion of historical and philosophical works, will help me in his will to work in confidence. As a practitioner, this book will save the research time I spent thousands of hours, can let my patients to find many of the problems they have to ask oneself answers. This is a landmark and is very timely book. Thousands of historical, philosophical picture shows the natural medicine prototype. It also provides a natural medicine global trajectory. -- Griff Powell (ClivePowell)
