Silver Nautilus Book Award Winner for Health & Healing

An antacid or an aspirin may soothe your pain, but it doesn't cure the cause of your symptoms. Headaches, indigestion, fatigue, allergies, anxiety, eczema, high blood pressure, and other conditions are clues to a deeper imbalance in your body, and learning to read those clues is a key step in maintaining optimal health. Herbalist Maria Noël Groves shows you how to read your body's signals and support your own wellness with herbal remedies and other natural treatments. You'll learn how each of your major body systems -- respiratory, digestive, immune, nervous, memory, reproductive, circulatory, and more -- optimally functions, and you'll discover how to use natural remedies to nourish and repair problem areas, restore lost vitality, support your body as a whole, and prevent future problems. Groves includes in-depth instructions, with step-by-step photographs, for making your own herbal remedies, as well as expert guidance on buying and effectively using commercial preparations.

Well reviewed by the herbal community.

There is a lot of information in this book, and at a point it starts to feel redundant but those statements appear frequently because they are essential to holistic self-care. I would recommend actually reading through Part 1: The Foundations of a Good Health so that you have a thorough grasp of the foundations. But from then on you can skip through the chapters and find the sections that appeal directly to you. However, if you decide to read through the entire book you will find that some herbs reappear because they offer so many benefits. This is a great reference book into holistic self-care, but if you take the time to go through Part 1 thoroughly you can return this book with the confidence that you know how to navigate the basics on your own.
