New, Expanded Edition! Radical Medicine: Cutting Edge Natural Therapies That Treat the Root Causes of Disease by Louisa L. Williams, M.S., D.C., N.D.
Dr. Louisa Williams' trailblazing new work is a much-needed guide to creating radiant health. With almost 700 pages of monumental research, Dr. Williams leaves no stone unturned. Radical Medicine: Cutting Edge Natural Therapies That Treat the Root Causes of Disease is a rare gift to health seekers and practitioners alike.
The timely significance of Radical Medicine is that much has transpired in the 60+ years since Nutrition & Physical Degeneration was published. We now live in a world with health challenges that Dr. Price could not have imagined. Ubiquitous plastics and electromagnetic fields, toxic body care products, hundreds of chemicals in our food and water, 1/3 of our lives spent on formaldehyde-infused mattresses, indoor air quality that is worse than outdoor urban air in most cases. Our predicament is more serious than most of us can grasp. But there is hope.
Radical Medicine reveals the most essential treatments required to achieve optimal health and ensure against future degenerative disease. In a sense, Dr. Williams has respectfully and carefully updated Dr. Price's findings for the 21st century, in light of the complex world we now live in. Dr. Williams' decades of work on the front lines of holistic health care has led her to the understanding that in our complex and toxic world, nutrition, though essential, is not able by itself to make us well. Radical Medicine is an indispensable, unprecedented guide to the new terrain of holistic health - an absolute must-read!
"In a landmark work, Dr. Louisa Williams describes how a nourishing diet according to the wise traditions of our ancestors can be even more effective in healing the many manifestations of disease when mercury amalgam fillings, dental focal infections, and other 'obstacles to cure' are removed."
Sally Fallon Morell, President of The Weston A. Price Foundation
"Radical Medicine is a thoughtful and comprehensive guide to everything I have learned and do daily. It really reminds us how difficult this work is, how subtle, how layered we are. Patients most often do not understand this and increasingly want the magic vitamin. I am going to post some things from the book on the office bulletin board, so that people can appreciate what is really involved in healing."
Robert Zieve, M.D., author of Beyond the Medical Meltdown, founder and director of the Center for Healthy Medicine
"As a patient, I found that the content of Radical Medicine directly reflected my own recognition of what my body/being needed for health and healing. I am now being treated at the Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland, and their biological medical model mirrors some of the overall healthcare and wellness approaches explained in this revelatory and fascinating book. Radical Medicine contains a lifetime of wisdom."
Jeannine Walston, cofounder and executive director of EmbodiWorks, a nonprofit providing integrative cancer care resources
"Radical Medicine is truly amazing--a wonderful work with such depth that I didn't want to put it down. I thought I knew more than most doctors in certain areas but was surprised when I felt an eagerness to get back to working with holistic medicine while reading it. I didn't think there was any resource out there that would elicit that reaction. I am blown away at its depth."
James Johnson, holistic health advocate
"Radical Medicine is breathtaking. The coverage of all areas of health is amazing, including the accurate history of craniopathy. Louisa L. Williams is to be congratulated for creating a masterpiece."
