If you or a loved one is suffering from these conditions you owe it to yourself and to them to understand the basics of treatment developed over years of research and scientific advancement. Look through the list of our books. Did you see polio on the list? How about tuberculosis? Of course not. Years of scientific progress has provided the information needed to cure and/or treat these ailments.

Think about the case of HIV/AIDS. It wasn’t a milkshake or a particular diet that took this disease from being one of the deadliest killers in the human history to a manageable, survivable condition. It was sound science, millions of dollars and hours spent in research and the devotion of doctor’s, students, activists and scientists committed to finding a solution.

While Mediscript books won’t promise you the moon and stars and a miracle in a cup, we can provide you with the most up-to-date, accredited medical information based on industry best-practices to help you manage these ailments and maintain a healthy quality of life.

“Caregivers who are equipped with knowledge can favorably affect the outcome of the health condition, and deal with it in a more effective manner.

Tools such as the Dr. Guide books educate people in the proper preventative and treatment techniques, supplying them with a degree of confidence and allaying fears of the unknown.”

Dr. Philip Lieberman

These books are great for doctors who want to help their patients maintain a healthy treatment regimen and they are also perfect for those readers who have a personal stake in understanding these issues.
