Average life expectancy is higher today than at any other period in our history, but our prolonged lives have come at a price: a rise in chronic disease. Naturopathy, or natural medicine, focuses on uncovering the roots of health and resilience. It works by using elements found in nature-- sunlight, water, nourishing foods, medicinal plants and animals-- to strengthen our bodies and give ourselves the power to overcome a wide range of illnesses. Michalsen walks us through the basic principles and scientific mechanisms of naturopathy and provides practical, easy-to-follow instructions on how to integrate naturopathic methods into our daily routine. -- adapted from publisher info provided
