This is an excellent book by Dr. Zoltan Rona. It is packed full of information that is well researched and referenced. It is 96 pages of information dedicated to the importance of Vitamin D in our lives. This is a great book to have on hand as a reference regarding Vitamin D, as the information is up to date with current research and it goes into great detail about the many health conditions that depend upon adequate levels of vitamin D. The information is well presented and the book is priced very nicely. It is also available in large print.
The Encyclopedia of Natural Healing is a must have for anyone interested in natural health care and maintenance. The book was published in 1998 and the information it contains is still accurate, relevant and incredibly useful. It is 1472 pages and as you would expect from a volume of this size the table of contents and index are invaluable, although, you will probably want to read it cover to cover to start with. The value of this book cannot be overstated as a reference tool for every family. Luckily this book comes in hardcover, because you will be using it for years to come.
