According to some reports, about half of all adults and children have one or more chronic health conditions. One in four adults has two or more chronic health conditions. And, sadly, these numbers continue to grow at an alarming rate.
The Holistic Rx offers the reader with one or more chronic health conditions or symptoms easy-to-follow evidence-based approaches to healing their ailments by targeting inflammation and its underlying root causes.

The first part of the book addresses the root of chronic illnessinflammationand examines its underlying causes and possible treatment approaches that focus on the whole body rather than just the affected area. In the second part of the book, she first advises the reader on adjusting their holistic approach to their health conditions based on their individual needs. Then, after briefly describing various integrative approaches, she provides an A-to-Z guide to holistic and integrative treatment of over 70 chronic illnesses, conditions, and symptoms. For each condition, she outlines a healing plan that begins with digestive health and detoxifications and the four S’s specific to that organ system and covers the additional alternative, holistic, and complementary approaches that are most effective for that condition. This ready resource will help the whole family address their most common complaints and promotes a healthy, balanced lifestyle that focuses on overall wellness.
