Reviews - What do customers think about Prescription for Dietary Wellness: Using Foods to Heal 2nd Edition?

Prescription For Dietary Wellness  Dec 17, 2008
Great book with lots of helpful info. I would have preferred the original edition over the 2nd edition only because that's the one I thought I was getting and had been looking at that a friend had but, the 2nd seems pretty close to the same so I guess it's OK too.
Content okay . . . Details Missing!  May 30, 2006
I have searched long and hard for a reference book and this was a let down. I felt the content was mediocre at best and the details behind their "research" and claims were missing. I found a better resource on Inner Health that was very impressive at It contained a Nutrition Benefits Chart that is unlike anything on the market.
confused by content  May 18, 2005
I was greatly impressed with "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" and when buying this book had that in mind. Both Ms. Balch and Dr. Balch (husband?) produced a very informative work with that title and I'm very thankful for it, regardless of my thoughts toward "...Dietary Wellness".

I picked up a copy of this book today and have been reading it. I was struck by the counsel for total avoidance Ms. Balch gave to all forms of Capsicum (pepper), and the advice that one should avoid both black and white pepper, as well as rice.

I found no remarks as to why this should be the case (which would seem a no-brainer considering the obvious health benefits of Capsicum, assorted Piperaceae and rice in ones diet). 'Leaves me somewhat mystified.
Excellent reference book  Feb 10, 2004
This book should be an intregal part of anyone's library, because it is full of information for every being's (including pets) health. The information is vital for one's wellness.
empowering information  Aug 18, 2000
I fond the information in Balch's book empowering. I try to eat a
balanced diet, but I can tell my body isn't getting "enough"
. Her book, although poorly organized in places, gave me the
knowledge about which vitamins, minerals and supplements would be best
for me to add to my diet in order to give it "enough"....
