AnthonyGodfreyA renowned practitioner of naturopathic medicine, Dr. Anthony Godfrey began his career as a veterinary surgeon in his native England. In the late 1960’s he moved to the United States, where he took a doctorate in human anatomy at U.C.L.A., followed by further advanced research in biology at Harvard. In 1990 he became a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine. Since then he has operated a highly-regarded family practice in Toronto, as well as teaching at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine.

Dr. Godfrey’s abiding concern has been to open people’s awareness to the healing power of nature. This book on the deep immune system reflects his life-long quest to understand human health and find more effective solutions to the experience of human suffering.
