If you’re like me, you want to gather and understand the latest and most accurate information when it comes to your health, particularly ways to get and stay healthy naturally.
And although my goal in writing this email newsletter is to provide you with readable, and more importantly, understandable information on the latest trends, there’s no way I can cover everything. There’s just too much information available. That means that sometimes you have health concerns you want to explore that might not have been covered in these pages.
That’s why today I’m going to share with you a few of my favorite information resources. These are the most reliable, well-researched sources for natural medicine information I know.
Most of these resources are internet based, but there is one that runs directly on your computer so you can get to it any time.
Internet Resources for Natural Health Info
Healthier Talk News: A good resource for high-quality information on alternative and natural approaches to wellness is Healthier Talk News. They compile articles from a variety of reliable sources including Al Sears, M.D., Alan Spreen, M.D., holistic pharmacists and professional health researchers.
Ray Sahelian, M.D.: An extensive collection of information on herbs, supplements and natural therapies based on his clinical experience. Dr. Sahelian lists over 250 specific supplements. You’ll find the list by scrolling down on his home page.
NaturalPedia: This resource comes from Mike Adams (The Health Ranger) and his NaturalNews.com web site. Mike has compiled an outstanding database of information on natural approaches to health. The index page is here.
Science Daily: For general health and medicine news, including mind and brain research, they do a good job of covering what’s new. You’ll find a mix of pure research and somewhat of a bias towards mainstream (pharmaceutical) solutions here. Even so, it’s a good place to see the latest in health discoveries.
National Institutes for Health Medline Plus: This Federal Government resources has, as you might expect, a great deal of information on mainstream research and treatments. But you might be surprised to know that it also has a decent section on Complementary and Alternative Therapies.
Medline covers such topics as acupuncture, herbal medicine, chiropractic treatment and supplements. Obviously this is fairly mainstream information, but there are some gems in there.
The Best Offline Source of Information
This is a natural health database that runs on your computer. It’s filled with an amazing variety of in-depth information on natural health remedies. In every case they cite the original research supporting the uses of the herbs and supplements listed.
It covers over 5,300 topics and has 59,287 clinical references. If you were to print it out, it would be the equivalent of a 40,564 page book! And even though there is so much information in it, it’s very easy to use.
To tell you the truth, this is my secret weapon when it comes to health research. It’s almost always the first place I look when researching topics for the Balance Point newsletter.
And the folks who compile this information are really great people. I’ve been using this resource for the past 7 years and it never fails to amaze me. And considering the depth of information, it’s very reasonably priced at $69.95 (CD Rom) or $59.00 (electronic download).
Apparently some of the folks at Hyperhealth read Balance Point, and recently they contacted me to offer my readers a discount for ordering Hyperhealth Pro.
That means you can get $10 off the normal price of the program when you order through this link and use the promo code, “DRBRUCE” (without quotes). You’ll see the place to put in the promo code on the second step of the online ordering process.
You should know that I will get a small percentage of the cost for the program if you order through the links above and use my discount code. If you’ rather order some other way, I still recommend that you check it out. You can do that by going to www.hyperhealth.com and ordering directly. You will pay $10 more, but the program is well worth it.
You should also know that this program only runs on PC computers. If you have a Mac, you’ll need PC emulator software for it to work.
By using the above promo code you’ll be able to make use of my favorite natural health resource for a great price. I don’t know how long this discount will be available, so if you are interested I recommend you take a look at it soon.
