"In Farmacology: What Innovative Family Farming Can Teach Us About Health and Healing, Daphne Miller, practicing physician and author of The Jungle Effect, draws from the lessons of organic farming to offer a fascinating and completely novel approach to staying well and preventing disease. What can farming teach a family doctor about the art and science of medicine? Nothing less than a revolutionary new way of thinking about health and well-being--an approach to wellness, holistic healing, and sustainable good health. Spending time with a diverse group of farmers committed to sustainable agriculture, Dr. Miller acquired a new understanding of good health, practices she applies to her patients suffering common modern maladies, from allergies, diabetes, and cancer, to ADHD, infertility, and heart disease."-- Provided by publisher.
