"Much of the modern illness we face is a reflection of life out of balance -- with nature, with daily rhythms, with ourselves. Maria Noel Groves offers readers an opportunity to return to nature by returning to ourselves. This is the beginning of our healing.”— Aviva Romm, M.D. This is a well written, engaging herbal guide that gives the reader a good foundation for using herbs and putting the body into balance! The author is easy to understand and covers multiple topics such as detoxification, relaxation and digestion. Each herb also includes the various, most useful ways to prepare it and the precautions to be taken if any. The book is well worth the price just for the special herbal recipes that are included in it and expert advise on diet and longevity.
