Wellness is the most comprehensive, well researched,
text on alternative medicine ever written. This is a superb
publication and is an ideal book to have in the home library
as well as for the physician who is interested in alternative
medicine. The book has obviously taken a tremendous effort
and reflects the unique and careful observations and treatment
that takes place in an intelligent and innovative physician's

written a very practical, articulate and easy-to-use guide

16 years, I looked for a book that combined the best of
standard, allopathic medicine with alternative therapies
but was consistently disappointed until I found Dr. Golan's
book. I've lost count of the number of copies of Optimal
Wellness that I've given as gifts. If I could recommend
only one book to have in a family's personal health care
library, this is it."

health-care system of the 21st century will be based upon
Americans taking greater responsibility for their own health.

well as healers. Ralph Golan represents that prototype.

"Ralph Golan, M.D. has authored a new book Optimal
Wellness-Where Mainstream and Alternative Medicine Meet"
which I believe, from my twenty years of experience in the
field of complementary medicine, represents one of the most
substantial new contributions to the field. Dr. Golan has
been a practitioner of comprehensive medical care for nearly
two decades and has been a leader in the Pacific Northwest
in advancing "the best of both worlds of medicine."
He has dealt with a broad range of health care from pediatrics
to gerontology-focused medicine. I've had the opportunity
to observe the relationship that Dr. Golan shares with his
patients and have marveled at his ability to weave a variety
of different concepts together, helping them to "get
the best out of medicine" with regard to their individual
needs. I think that the book Optimal Wellness expresses
the experience and scientific basis for this integrated
approach to medicine beautifully. I am convinced that the
book will make a significant contribution to those who read
it in understanding how to find their way through the complexities
of our medical system and to be more "in charge"
of their own medical services.
The field of complementary medicine is in need of books
with the quality and texture of that of Dr. Golan's book.
I believe the book will prove to be a major resource to
be used for years to come in this rapidly evolving field.
I urge all readers who are interested in both the "whys"
and the "how too" of complementary medicine to
carefully read Dr. Golan's book."

"Ralph Golan has put together a path, in a workable,
usable book, to increase health to that optimum peak that
most people are seeking today. We need to have more education
and less medication, and it is to this end that I say this
is one of the finest books that has come out in a long time.
I am sure that many people will be blessed in using this
book, as students, as teachers, and in taking control of
