About the Author

Michael T. Murray, N. D. is widely regarded as one of the world's leading authorities on natural medicine. He is a graduate, faculty member, and member of the Board of Trustees of Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. In addition to maintaining a private medical practice, Dr. Murray is an accomplished writer, educator, and lecturer. Hw is the medical editor of The American Journal of Natural Medicine.

Dr. Murray serves on several editorial boards and advisory panels. As a consultant to the health food industry, Dr. Murray has been instrumental in bringing many effective natural products to America, including: ginkgo biloba extract, glucosamine sulfate, silymarin, enteric-coated peppermint oil, bilberry extract, DGL (deglycyrrhizinated licorice), saw palmetto berry extract, and the first thermo-genic formula for weight loss.

For the past ten years, Dr. Murray has been compiling a massive database of original scientific studies from the medical literature. He has collected over 50,000 articles from the scientific literature that provide strong evidence of the effectiveness of diet, vitamins, minerals, glandular extracts, herbs, and other natural measures in the maintenance of health and the treatment of disease. It is from this constantly expanding database that Dr. Murray provides the answers on health and healing. According to Dr. Murray:

One of the great myths about natural medicines is that they are not scientific. The fact of the matter is that for most common illnesses there is greater support in the medical literature for a natural approach than there is for drugs or surgery.

Unfortunately for many people, they are never aware of the natural approach that can put them on the road to life-long health. Michael Murray has dedicated his life to educating physicians, patients, and the general public on the tremendous healing power of nature. In addition to his book, Dr. Murray has written thousands of articles, appeared on hundreds of radio and TV programs, and lectured live to over 200, 000 people, nationwide.
