Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Herbalist Tourles (Raw Energy: 124 Raw Food Recipes for Energy Bars, Smoothies, and Other Snacks to Supercharge Your Body) offers an introduction to natural wellness in this latest book, the bulk of which is made up of instructions for making topical ointments and poultices from herbs and oils. Her remedies address everything from anxiety to eczema. Tourles writes about the history of herbal remedies and her own family's experience with herbs and holistic remedies. She challenges readers to examine the over-the-counter treatments in their medicine cabinets and compare them with the natural remedies she describes. While Tourles writes that she isn't trying to challenge Western medicine's approach to serious illness or injuries, she does say that many modern ills could be prevented "if we once again relied on our plant friends, the herbs, to influence our health and well-being." VERDICT This herbal remedy recipe book will appeal to readers interested in supplementing traditional care with herbal preparations, as well as to those who would like to take a more active role in their own treatment.—Mindy Rhiger, Minneapolis

    I enjoyed all the tidbits and helpful advice in this handy book.

    I enjoyed all the tidbits and helpful advice in this handy book. There is a trend toward holistic medicine and this book fits the bill. Glad to have all this information in an easy to access reference book.I absolutely love this book, and I consult it for any concerns I have for my family and friends.

    This book is chocked full of remedies that are easy to use, cheap to make and above all don't require an Rx. I am convinced that we need to return to more homeopathic and natural remedies like this, rather than run to the doctors for pills.
    It is well organized; even color codes different sections, and has great pictures / illustrations. If I had to eliminate all but one book in my library on health remedies and treatment, this would be the one I would keep.

    I was given this book from NetGalley.

    Operation: Crossover 3--Chapter 17

    Before Spike could recuperate, TK and Mew were standing next to Yu's unconcious form. "They need medical attention." TK said, worridley. But Mew knew that they had mostly recovered, and that all they needed was a little help...<p>Mew unleashed a pink wave from it's little body, and it swept over everyone. TK looked up, shocked. "You attacked them? Why!??" But even as he accused Mew, the wounds on the unconcious members of the team began to fade away. "Look!" Patomon shouted. "It must've been some kind of healing move!!"<p>Yu was the first one to get up. "Ooog...where are we?" Then he gave a start. "Raph? Rainbow??" Spike giggled once more, as everyone got up. "Looks like we all have some stories to tell."<p>***<p>"And that's how we beat Joker."<p>Patomon was finishing the tale. Everyone was now up to date on what had been going on, and were ready to continue with plans.<p>"Hmm. So we still need to find Leo, AJ, Rarity, Pinkie, Fluttershy, Mikey, Donnie, Dukie, Susan and Mary, Ben 10, Kat, Johnny and Twilight." Yu offered. Robyn nodded. "Okay. I hate to say it, but we need to search this miserable wasteland for any sign of them." Vanellope piped up. "Or a way out. This place is creepy." Robyn laughed. "Indeed, Vanellope. Alright! Let's go, team!!"<p>And off they went. They started off by searching through HQ, but as there was nothing more to be found, they chose to venture off in a random direction, as nobody's navigation system seemed to be working.<p>As they traveled, they would occasionaly come upon a dilapidated structure that had been torn from reality, and added to Subspace. They would often stop and search these places for their friends, but they never found anyone. So they would stay there for a while, sleep, and move on.<p>There was no discernable night or day in Subspace. The sky was not lighted in any way, save the purple energy that constantly moved through Subspace. Because of this lack of sun and moon, sleep occured whenever the party got tired. They would leave one or two of the stronger members--usually Luffy, Raph, Zolo or Robyn--as sentries, taking shifts, while the others slept.<p>They were forced to leave sentries because of the monsters. They were hounded by dark beasts of all kinds throughout their journey. Oftentimes, when one person was wounded by these monsters, the others would use a distraction to flee with the wounded.<p>And so it went on, for a very long time.<p>***<p>"I'm sick of walking!"<p>Toph stopped to rub her aching feet, as she often did. "I can barely sense anything in this weird purple earth! Let's rest!" Marx laughed an impatient laugh. "Nope! Gotta keep moving!!" He said. Toph huffed. "Well, why can't I ride on Jake?" The dog in question looked up. "Because you just got off of me! It's hard to carry people for such a long time."<p>TK yelled. "Aaggh!! This is so stupid! We'vd been walking for days, weeks, who knows how long, and we have nothing to show!! We don't even know if the others are in this flat he<_>llhole!" Robyn moved her hands in a calming gesture. "Settle down, TK. We're all tired..." TK growled, and kicked the purple dirt angrily.<p>To everyone present's suprise, a little metal cylinder went flying into Finn's face. "Ow!" He said. He picked up the thing. "I guess it was under the dirt when TK kicked it. What's it do?"<p>Robyn took the cylinder from Finn. "I recognize this design from when I saw a picture of Johnny's battlesuit!! It's a recording device!!"
