This is both a bibliography for the sources of much of the technical details on this web site and a list of recommended reading for those with an interest in these subjects.
I have never agreed with everything in any of these books and at times could not use some or even most of the recommendations made by these authors but they all gave me one or more pieces of the puzzle in my quest to understand the causes of chronic illness.
I have read thousands of books over the 40+ years I have studied health and experimented with many methods of health promotion but the following authors gave me the most useful and effective knowledge and approaches. These are the ones who have stood the test of time.
