Divided into two sections--Nature's Cures and Nature's Pharmacopoeia--this beautifully illustrated guide provides up-to-date information on such timely topics as the perils of packaged foods and the benefits of phytochemicals, how to achieve major results with minor alterations in your food choices, the soothing benefits of essential oils, and the most effective methods for maximizing such natural home helpers as salts, vinegars, oils, and more. Innovative recipes offer easy, effective dishes that utilize multiple herbs, spices, and fresh foods for powerhouse results.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review It's a great encyclopedia of sorts, for those interested in using more foods, herbs, oils and spices provided in nature to treat health issues or to improve well-being. -Instagram: @rendezvous_with_reading This is just a great general guide on how to do things naturally, chemical free, and non-toxic, so right up my alley. -Instagram: @no4cottonburrow Another plus of this book is that it is respectful of modern medicine- it acknowledges that these remedies should be used in conjunction with your doctor's advice, providing thoughtful commentary on any questions allowing the reader to make their own decision. I highly recommend this book; it would make a wonderful gift to anyone interested in eating for health and longevity! -Instagram: @bookishinmpls While I'm all for going to the doctor when needed, it's good to know what remedies can help with which ailments. -Wining Wife Phenomenal! If I have to describe it in just one word, that would be it. This book is jam packed with tons and I mean tons of not only informational and interesting/important facts about herbs, spices and food in general, but it also includes ways to use them and DIY recipes to make at home. -Diary of a Stay at Home Mom As a mama who takes her job seriously (nurturer💪🏻) books like this just light me up! I really enjoyed flipping through and reading about the therapeutic properties of nature's best! -Instagram: @naturalnglamorous If you are someone who is looking to learn more about about living an increasingly healthy life or want to incorporate some healthy practices/foods, definitely check this book out. It has such a wealth of information that I don't think you will regret it. 5 stars, love this book. -Ms. Nose in a Book This book is gorgeous, very informative across a wide array of healthful choices, and I think it's necessary for every home...This beautiful book will be on your bookshelf drawing you back again and again. -Stacy's Books This book has been my bible lately. Learning how herbs, spices, and foods (good foods) are so good for our bodies. I knew the basics but this book really spelled it all out for me to understand and provided me some awesome recipes to start incorporating them into my life effortlessly and deliciously -Dear Patchouli.
