"Emphasizing natural therapies that mobilize the body's own healing resources, Weil (U. of Arizona School of Medicine) provides a blueprint for low-cost, preventive health maintenance that is both a general guide on how to stay well and a reference manual to be consulted for specific symptoms. One of the best in a crowded field." Booknews, Inc.
