Overview

Dr. Andrew Weil believes that some aspects of Western medicine may interfere with the body's natural ability to protect and heal itself. Eight Weeks to Optimum Health is the follow-up program to the immensely popular Spontaneous Healing. The program outlines an eight-week program designed to promote the body's resistance to disease and illness. Each week a new healthy concept is introduced. The "heal and help thyself" attitude to physical health is a positive and encouraging notion; people looking for medical inspiration will find value in Weil's philosophy.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Zoe Waldron
"Health is not the opposite of disease," says well-known author Dr. Andrew Weil, but rather an "inner balance or resilience that allows you to interact with germs, not get sick." In this engaging videotape companion to his bestselling book of the same title, Dr. Weil lays out his acclaimed 8 Weeks To Optimum Health plan in clear, engaging terms. At the heart of his simple eight-week program are scheduled, incremental changes in diet, dietary supplements, exercise, and mental-spiritual practices designed to protect and enhance your body's natural healing system. The beauty of the program is that anyone can make the little changes Dr. Weil suggests -- cooking only with olive oil, walking briskly just a few minutes a day, and going on a "news fast" once a week. These guidelines are sensibly designed to appeal to everyone, from new age dabbler to cynical couch potato. And the goal -- major improvements in physical and mental health -- is unassailable.
