Tom Monte (Biography)
|Tom Monte is one of the most prolific authors and teachers of natural healing in the world.|
In the past 20 years, Tom has written more than 28 books and many hundreds of articles on virtually every area of health. His books offer healing approaches to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, asthma, immune deficiency disorders, overweight and obesity, muscle and joint problems, Crohn's and inflammatory bowel disorders, and conditions affecting the brain and nervous system.
Tom specializes in creating a bridge of understanding between the ancient and modern forms of healing. He has a deep understanding of traditional healing practices, such as Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, herbology, and Naturopathy. His book, The Complete Guide to Natural Healing, provides solutions to more than 120 diseases and conditions from the perspective of modern and complementary medicine. In World Medicine: The East West Guide to Healing Your Body, Tom examines every organ, system, and sense from the medical and ancient healing perspectives.
He is also an accomplished medical and science writer; many of his books and articles describe healing approaches that are based entirely on the scientific literature. Staying Young, another of Tom's books, provides natural healing remedies for 70 major disorders exclusively from the medical perspective. Tom wrote three books with John McDougall, M.D., one on heart disease, another on weight loss, and a third on virtually every disorder affecting women's health. He wrote three books with Robert Pritikin, son of the pioneering scientist, Nathan Pritikin, the creator of the Pritikin Program who used diet and exercise to successfully restore the health of tens of thousands of people. Tom wrote Robert Pritikin's best-selling book, The Pritikin Weight Loss Breakthrough, as well as Nathan Pritikin's definitive biography, Pritikin: The Man Who Healed America's Heart.
