How to Live Longer and Feel Better

Copyright 2006, Oregon State University Press ISBN 978-0870710964

by Dr. Linus Pauling

First published in 1986, this is the twentieth anniversary edition.

From the Introduction: "This book discusses some simple and inexpensive measures that you can take to lead a better and longer life, with greater enjoyment and fewer illnesses.  The most important recommendation is that some vitamins be taken every day to supplement the vitamins that you get in your food.  The best amounts of the supplementary vitamins and the best way to take them are discussed in the first chapters of the book, and the reasons for taking them are discussed in the following chapters."

This is the book that captivated me about nutrition.  Dr. Pauling states his case clearly and most convincingly in a very easy to read style.  My top recommendation.

The Arthritis Cure

Copyright 1997, W.H. Freeman and Company ISBN 0-7167-1781-6 

by Jason Theodosakis, Brenda Adderly and Barry Fox

This very popular book spawned the rush to glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates as a cure for osteoarthritis.  Theodosakis reviews the literature concerning these nutrients, which is fairly extensive, and draws convincing conclusions.  I am disappointed that he talks so little concerning viatmin C, due to its important role in tissue integrity, but you know I'll do that.  I can tell you that the combination of the sulfates and vitamin C can be extremely effective.  Ask my mother!

The Miracle of MSM, The Natural Solution for Pain

Copyright 1997, W.H. Freeman and Company ISBN 0-7167-1781-6 

by Stanley W. Jacob, M.D., Ronald M. Lawrence, M.D., Ph.D., and Martin Zucker

MSM is a cousin of DMSO, but without the undesireable odor.  It is a sulfur supplement that appears to be very helpful for pain management, especially helpful for allergies and arthritis.  This nutrient too, is worth a try for those suffering from osteoarthritis.
