    A Must Have Herbal Nutrition Reference

    Hi Readers! Why would you purchase this book on herbal remedies?? So that you won¿t feel like an idiot when it comes to using, purchasing or getting the best herbs for your situation!! Let me also tell you what many of my readers have told me! First of all, this book should be read by anyone and everyone who has decided to try herbs¿and of MOST importance is those who are on any prescription drugs, those who are pregnant and/or nursing. Even if you already are an herbalist¿this book is for your clients to help them take responsibility and understand what the herbs will do for them. (I even include a section on finding a good herbalist.) Don¿t GUESS! This book not only just puts herbs and supplements with over 100 different ailments, BUT, most importantly, it EMPOWERS the reader with information on what the probable cause of the problem is. Therefore, you can do much more for yourself than take an herb for your health¿you can avoid the possible cause, pinpoint the areas that are affected, and protect yourself in the future. How can you work on preventative health, if you don¿t know what brings on a problem?! This is my goal, with all my books, is to help you understand your body and the way herbal nutrition and holistic nutrition can help you rebuild a new, healthier you. Be SMART, and don¿t worry about the title¿these titles are written for those who want to know the basics and who want a guide to make it easy! Have fun, and keep on sending me your testimonies!
