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. 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.
