As health guru Leslie Kenton turns to creative and shamanic projects, it is left to health journalist of the year, Susan Clark, to take up the position as Britain's premier health expert. Congratulations to Thorsons for packaging Clark's heavyweight, authoritative guide to natural health (and where to find it) in a zestful turquoise-coloured cover and a quirky, chunky square format.
Instead of pretty pictures and visuals, you will find 450 pages of thoroughly researched and tested advice, in a simple, easy to use format. No matter what your problem or interest is, this will not only provide the answers, but the advice is priceless.
Clark writes with as much insight as passion and opinion for her subject. The book is divided into four parts: BodyWorks, outlining the five building blocks of good health; Top-to-Toe, an A-Z of 80 everyday health complaints, Hands-On, a comprehensive guide to complementary treatments, and SoulWorks which addresses spiritual health. Clark has read the books, interviewed the experts, studied the latest research, and is passing on her expertise to us.
The extensive resources section with details of every relevant organisation (plus an eclectic bibliography) makes this a truly complete and self-sufficient guide. If you buy just one health book, make it this one. --Lorna V.Review:
