Choosing natural remedies, can be a difficult and confusing task.

Part I begins with an A-to-Z listing of natural therapies. Each section provides an introduction to the therapy being discussed, explaining what it is and why it’s effective. It then provides an alphabetical list of specific conditions and ailments each healing therapy will help prevent or cure, with explicit directions on how to use it for optimal results. Also included are sidebars, real-life examples, and anecdotes to enhance readability.
Part II provides a comprehensive list of resources, including sources for herbs and supplements, practitioners of homeopathic medicine, and sources of exercise and natural therapy equipment.

“One of my new favorites!”

I have to say this book has quickly become one of my most used reference books on natural medicine. Dr. Stengler did a truly superb job in consolidating the information in an understandable and practical way. I count his book as a reliable resource for herbal/nutritional/ homeopathic information. And, that says a lot because nowadays anybody with some credentials can write up a book, but is it information you can trust? Another thing about this book, that I truly liked was it opened the world of homeopathy to me – the uses of Sepia and Pulsatilla for women! This book should be on every interested person’s bookshelf.
