Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Despite the hokey headings (``Juice Therapy: Putting the Squeeze on Good Health''; ``Reflexology: You Can't Beat the Feet''), this volume offers a clear, concise introduction to a wide range of complementary healing practices from around the world. Part I explains 16 modalities- from acupressure to yoga-in simple terms that make accessible even such esoteric concepts as the relationship between quantum physics and Ayurveda. Sidebars offer additional pointers, from instructions on making ghee to a list of questions to ask a homeopath. Part II presents an impressive array of do-it-yourself natural remedies for 163 common health problems-as well as caveats on when to seek professional advice. Under ``Burns,'' for example, after a subheading entitled ``See Your Medical Doctor When...'' are suggestions for treatments by practitioners of seven modalities, including aromatherapy, Ayurveda and vitamin and mineral therapy. An ``Illustrations'' section depicts acupressure and reflexology points, massage strokes and exercises. Part III, not seen by PW, includes resources and index. Author tour. (Sept.)
