Praise for The Honey Prescription

“For millennia the honeybee has kept humans healthy by pollinating so many of our fruits and vegetables and by providing two of nature’s most sacred healing substances: honey and propolis. After decades of ignorance, doctors are rediscovering the power of these miracle medicines, and Nathaniel Altman is here to spread the good news. The Honey Prescription will amaze you, delight you, and, most important, give you a fantastic new ally to promote natural wellness.”
Rowan Jacobsen, author of Fruitless Fall: The Collapse of the Honey Bee and the Coming Agricultural Crisis

"The increasing interest in wellness should make this a good seller. You might include it in displays about the environment to let customers know it also contains information about the causes and effects of the diminishing honeybee population."
Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer, May 2010

"Honey has been used for medicine for eons, but it's only in the last 100 years that its antibacterial abilities have come to light--properties explored in Nathan Altman's new book, The Honey Prescription. . . . some varieties may also help treat gingivitis, yeast infections, and burns."
Whole Living Body and Soul, a Martha Stewart publication, April 2010
