Body into Balance
|Author:||Maria Noel Groves|
An antacid or an aspirin may soothe your pain, but it doesn't cure the root 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 Noel 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, reproductive, circulatory, and more - optimally functions, and you'll discover how to use natural remedies to nourish and repair problem areas, restore any 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.
A highly accessible herbal medicine guide to all the major body systems and their common imbalances, with in-depth advice on how to best use herbs to support and nourish each system, address chronic health issues, and help achieve optimal health.
