Overview

Taking a dynamic and three-dimensional approach that mixes conventional and complementary forms of healing, The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Well-Being puts you in control of your own health. Featuring hundreds of full-color illustrations, handy boxed entries that highlight important information, and extensive cross-referencing, this health manual is divided into nine easy-to-use sections that cover a wide range of problems. Begin by understanding the structure of each individual part of your body. Here are safe and natural methods for boosting circulation, getting the body in full working order, and preventing disease. You'll want to try the advice on exercise and diet, and if you're thinking of consulting an alternative therapist - the discussion of homeopathy, hypnotherapy, naturopathy, acupuncture, and more will prove invaluable in choosing the best type for your purpose. Because men and women have health issues specific to their gender, and different vulnerabilities, there are separate discussions for each. And because fulfilling relationships actually can help us live longer, there's even counsel on keeping romance blossoming. Get your child off to a good start with these tips on handling everything from colic to teething.
