Doctor Yourself: Natural Healing That Works

REVIEWS of DOCTOR YOURSELF: Natural Healing that Works

“One of the best. I can think of no one better suited to educate than Andrew Saul. In DOCTOR YOURSELF, he provides an enormous amount of information on the use of nutrition – orthomolecular medicine – in treating almost all disease. Saul coats his medical advice with wit and humor too – important information that is also fun to read about. If every American had a copy of this book, it could change the world as we know it.” (Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, No. 250, May 2004, p 128.) To read the complete review, Click Here
What Physicians Say:

“I had been a practicing pediatric gastroenterologist for 25 years. During that time I watched some really beautiful children and young men and women die under my care because I had nothing more to offer, and unfortunately what I had offered many times only made their lives more miserable. Recent health problems led me to read about Linus Pauling and orthomolecular medicine and it has been like discovering an advanced ancient civilization that I had no idea had ever existed. After reading Doctor Yourself by Dr. Andrew Saul, I have become a very angry man. I’ve just realized that for 25 years I had been making my patients sick and big pharma rich. I’ve just realized that those chronic hepatitis patients that died waiting for a liver transplant could have been easily cured with vitamin C. I realize now that my toximolecular medical education only led me to do more harm than good. That is not a good feeling to have. I only wish that all my critically ill patients had read Dr. Saul’s book and fired their doctor. Doctor Yourself in fact has inspired me to now open an exclusive orthomolecular medicine practice for children and adults of all ages, and copies of the book will be in the waiting room for all to read. In the names of all those I didn’t help before, I hope this time to make a difference.” (Edward Cichowicz, M.D., Pediatric Gastroenterologist)

“Up to date, well put, easy to follow, and if followed, will help readers enhance their degree of health and decrease the possibility of developing serious disease.” (Abram Hoffer, M.D., PhD.)

“What a superb book Doctor Yourself is for both the health professions and anyone interested in maintaining a better level of health. I applaud the work, especially its forthright manner of presentation. It should be of enormous value to a vast number of people.” (Hugh D. Riordan, M.D.)

Additional Reviewers’ Comments:

“Provocative and exciting. DOCTOR YOURSELF: Natural Healing that Works is nutritional medicine in action, and as such deserves a prominent place in the library of anyone serious about self health care.” (Julia Woodford, Editor, Vitality, Feb. 2004)

“Expertly written. Doctor Yourself is a very helpful guidebook which is filled from cover to cover with gems of information that aren’t usually discussed in most other nutrition books.” (Midwest Book Review, Vol 3, No 3, March 2004.)

Dr. Andrew Saul says that his kids never once had an antibiotic. This is reason enough to read his new book, DOCTOR YOURSELF: Natural Healing the Works. Saul, formerly a Visiting Assistant Professor of Health Science at the State University of New York College at Brockport, has utterly abandoned traditional “food groups” nutrition. Instead, he focuses on what readers really want to know: exactly how can we prevent and cure illness without drugs or surgery? Which vitamins and which minerals have the most powerful therapeutic uses? How much do we really need to take? How will my kids benefit? How can we do this inexpensively and safely? And why haven’t we heard about this sooner?

Saul says that decades of clinical research already prove the value of intensive nutrition therapy with very large doses of vitamins and other nutrients. DOCTOR YOURSELF contains 242 large pages of concentrated information and motivation. The book is carefully substantiated with scientific studies, at times providing more references than many readers want but no more than skeptics need. Saul says we need education, not medication, and that we should “stop living with illness and learn to live without illness.” That’s one tall order, yet our nation annually spends over one trillion dollars on health care and we still lose one and a half million people each year from cancer and heart disease. Even if Saul is only partly right, it could still save thousands of lives and billions of dollars, and immeasurable pain and suffering.

But back to his kids: how did they grow up to be college age without ever having even one dose of an antibiotic? The answer is clear when Saul explains the antibiotic, antihistamine and antiviral properties of vitamin C. Can this really be the end of ear infections? Of bronchitis? If so, then what else? His considerable experience with family, students and many clients fill the book with one very readable anecdote after another, all tightly held together with scientific evidence from controlled clinical studies.

Dr. Saul is a natural medicine specialist. He has a Masters degree in education, a nontraditional Ph.D. in Human Ethology, and has taught Clinical Nutrition to many hundreds of practicing health professionals. He has been in private practice as a natural healing consultant for over 25 years. It shows. Every page of DOCTOR YOURSELF is full of facts, practical hints, and Saul’s appealing (or is that appalling?) sense of humor. For example, his “Evading Exercise” chapter is an often-hilarious ode to nudity, which all the while slyly prods the reader to get up and work out.

But there are no punches pulled when he discusses cancer, heart disease, diabetes, depression, and alcoholism. This is serious material, and his presentation of the facts is relentless. Dr. Saul makes a strong case for the aggressive nutritional treatment of many killer diseases. DOCTOR YOURSELF covers a large number of additional topics, including ADHD and learning disabilities, allergies, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, asthma, backache, dermatitis, diabetes, epilepsy, fertility, fibromyalgia, hepatitis and cirrhosis, immune dysfunction, children’s health, Ménière’s syndrome and tinnitus, menopause, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, PMS/PMDD, pregnancy and lactation, psoriasis, schizophrenia and psychosis, sleep disorders, vaccinations, and weight loss.

And that is just Part One.

In Part Two, “Natural Healing Tools and Techniques,” you will find exactly how to do “Saul’s Super Remedy,” employ vitamin C megadose therapy, get to niacin saturation, get the most out of vegetable juicing, make a “Breakfast Blast,” correctly use vitamin B12, reduce stress, remove pesticides from your food, understand the difference between natural and synthetic vitamins, and even learn how to spot anti-vitamin biases in a scientific study.

Overall, DOCTOR YOURSELF contains an enormous amount of simple, practical, how-to information on natural healing therapies. As Saul puts it, “I do not stay up late at night making all this up. I’ve collected the safest and most effective healing approaches that I can find from physicians worldwide. Results are all that matter to me. Natural healing is an alternative that works.”
