"Wylde on Health" by Bryce Wylde

If you live in Canada, chances are you've seen Bryce Wilde on television.  A leading alternative health expert, Bryce has been seen on on his own television show, Wylde on Health, as well as a frequent guest on shows such as Breakfast Television, CityLine, Canada AM, The Marilyn Denis Show, and Steven and Chris.  

His latest book, Wylde On Health: Your Best Choices in the World of Natural Health, brings together the latest information on natural health along with Wylde's expert knowledge to help you navigate the often confusing world of alternative medicine.  Wylde clears up the terminology, gives an in-depth look at the testing available to better understand your health, and gives readers the best natural cures for everything that ails.  Using his own easy to understand rating system he helps readers separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to today's hottest health trends.

I read a lot of books on natural health and I would consider this one a great place to start.  Wylde spends a good amount of time covering every health concern that readers could be dealing with, looking at how it affects people, how to be tested for it, and what to do about it.  He then discusses the popular natural solutions that are available for these concerns.  He rates them based on the claim, the scientific validity of the claim, the ease of using the solution, the cost, and cautions in an easy to read chart with a final overall rating.  The book is highly interactive with QR codes on most pages to give you video clips and more information on the health concerns.  The book finishes off with a section on staying healthy, outlining the importance of actions such as eating right, exercising, sleeping well, etc.

The book covers a wide range of topics and whatever is ailing you will be in here.  It gives a good overview of health concerns and solutions in an easy to use format.  The only negative thing about the book for me is that it doesn't fully explain how or why these solutions work, and doesn't get too in-depth.  That is what the QR codes are for though that is not something I personally tend to use.  However, I would still use this book as my first place to go when something is concerning me and then go to other sources to get more information if I want it.

I'm a huge fan of Bryce Wylde's and any time I see him on television I stop to listen to what he has to say.  This book captures all of his knowledge in one place.  He isn't one to make grandiose claims and he isn't one to shun conventional medicine, he is just passionate about helping people live their optimal health and understand the healing powers of nature and the body itself.  Whether the natural health world is confusing you, scaring you or of interest to you, this book is a must-read.

I received a copy of this book courtesy of Random House of Canada.  The opinions expressed above are purely my own.
