I thought I'd post a few posts that Uny made about the writings of Dr. Christopher. His children have altered his words so I'd only buy old used books by Dr. Christopher to be assured you'd be getting what he actually wrote. Uny explains in her posts below.
Even though Dr. Schulze ramped up Dr. Christopher's formulas, I'd give my eye teeth for any of Dr. Christopher's original books lol. To me they are priceless! ;-)
As I understand it, ALL the versions of this book have this chapter...BUT the later versions of the book (those printed after 1979, I presume) have been edited/updated and had many of the words of Dr. Christophers changed (by his children/family) in order to "comply" with the pressures from the 'powers that be'.
pasted the information from my "original" Complete Writings of Dr. John R Christopher CD (it's very old, formatted for Windows 3.1 & kind of tricky to search through...but I was VERY lucky/blessed to find one... even if was over $100). The CD (and the book above) are still available BUT...his children have actually edited, "upgraded" ::::smirk:::: & changed his words in some areas (basically, they kowtow'd to the PowersThatBe, and made it *appear* that Dr. Christopher was stating 'warning words' about certain herbs, when Dr. Christopher NEVER said those words). So unless one has an original copy of what he really said, there's no way to know what are his son's words, or his. ARGGH
Dr. Christopher's children have taken over his company since his death, and in kowtowing to the Powers That Be, and altered everything he ever wrote to comply with their pressure & threats...and unless one is comparing his original works 'side by side' with the newer versions, there's no way to actually know what are Dr. Christopher's words and what his children have altered. One can occasionally find (on eBay and from vintage book sellers) his original writings (he died in 1982/83, so anything published before that is 'original).
There's also a set of videos that was made at his school (The School of Natural Healing in Utah) shortly before his death...it's generally referred to as "Herbalist Seminars" (17 hours)...and is currently offered on DVD by his children for $395.00. The quality is HORRIBLE (on VHS or DVD) - there are many stops & starts with large sections 'cut'...yet it is the ONLY video record of Dr. Christopher...and the information and inspiration is priceless! You can occasionally find the VHS videos on eBay for around $50-$60. Or you can currently watch/download them on Google video. There's also a set of 10 audio CD's (Dr. John R. Christopher's Herbal Lectures) which you can find being sold retail at various places (for around $60-$80). They are also priceless and totally original. Here's a list of the publications originally written by Dr. Christopher:
SCHOOL OF NATURAL HEALING
HERBAL HOME HEALTH CARE
EVERY WOMAN'S HERBAL
THE UNPUBLISHED WORKS OF DR. CHRISTOPHER
DR. CHRISTOPHER'S NEWSLETTERS
List of Conditions and Ailments
List of Herbal Combinations and Formulas
I took the list above from my copy of a CD entitled "The Complete Writings of Dr. John R. Christopher" - this CD was created for Windows 3.1, is "original" and not edited, and I consider myself HUGELY blessed to have found one of the last copies available (before his children 'worked it over' for a new version, that I don't know if they've marketed yet or not). This one was originally marketed for right around $100 (I paid much more). As you can see from the list above, this contains ALL of his newsletters AND his unpublished writings. Even though this CD works on any computer, because it's designed for Win 3.1, it's kind of tricky to navigate (it has it's own 'search program', as did most everything designed for 3.1)...but I've always been able to find everything I wanted to find.
