For over 35 years, Dr. Murray has been compiling a massive data-base of original scientific studies from the medical literature. He has personally collected over 70,000 articles from the scientific literature which provide strong evidence on the effectiveness of diet, vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other natural measures in the maintenance of health and the treatment of disease. It is from this constantly expanding data-base 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 tremendous support in the medical literature for a more natural approach.”
Unfortunately for many people, they are never aware of the natural approach that can put them on the road to lifelong health. Michael T. Murray, N.D., has dedicated his life to educating physicians, patients, and the general public on the tremendous healing power of nature. In addition to his books, which have cumulative sales of over five million copies sold, Dr. Murray has written numerous articles for major publications, appeared on hundreds of radio and TV programs, and lectured to hundreds of thousand people nationwide.
