Nearly half of Americans use supplements―and many more are curious about them―yet questions abound. Will feverfew help my migraines? Are there any vitamins that will keep my skin clear? Does lysine really prevent cold sores? Are there herbs I can take to boost my mood? Are any of these things safe?
Mark Moyad, MD, MPH is the only physician in the United States who has an endowed position to study vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other supplements. For the past 25 years, he’s been researching supplements, using them in his practice, and traveling the country giving lectures to laypeople and physicians about what works and what’s worthless in the world of drugs and supplements.
Based on the latest research as well as Dr. Moyad’s clinical experience, The Supplement Handbook guide you through the proven (or debunked) treatment options for more than 100 common conditions―everything from arthritis, heartburn, and high cholesterol to fibromyalgia, migraines, and psoriasis. Dr. Moyad provides clear guidelines, sifting through conflicting information for a definitive answer you can use today. He does not hesitate to point out which remedies are overhyped, useless, and even harmful. He even ranks the most effective options so you know which remedies to try first, and he’s honest about when over-the-counter or prescription drugs are the better option.
More than an overview, The Supplement Handbook delivers prescriptive, reliable advice. Whether you’re an alternative medicine convert or an interested-but-confused supplement novice, this comprehensive, evidence-based guide is sure to become a must-have reference in your home.

Excellent Resource The older I get, the more I resist running to my doctor for prescriptions, and yet, too often my body is sending me signals that one thing or another needs correction or tweaking. If I can solve it naturally, I try to do so– though I do have a good doctor, and he helps to keep me healthy.

I live 2 blocks from a wonderful natural foods store, and I can spend hours reading the labels on the various supplements– and it can be enormously confusing. The info gleaned from Google searching is mind-numbing, and as soon as I get convinced of one thing, I will immediately find three articles to refute the same information.

This is one of the best, written by one of the best. Dr. Moyad has an impressive resume in his field. I’ve had the opportunity to attend one of his presentations in person and he is someone I found not just dynamic in his presentation but trustworthy, able to field any question that came his way and above all he seems to be extremely dedicated to his profession- my husband is a victim of prostate cancer and with that comes myriad questions on any number of issues from the diagnosis itself to his treatment, nutrition, supplements, battling side-effects of chemotherapy, managing his blood pressure, cholesterol and maintaining proper weight and a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Dr. Moyad address all of this in his book in an easy to read fashion- the book truly is a handbook that we reference constantly. I can’t recommend it highly enough- especially since having the opportunity to meet him and see him in action personally. My husband and I trust his expertise and commitment to spreading information that is vital to a long and healthy…
