About the Book

This is your moment. Here you are, holding a guide to better health and natural healing, written by an experienced naturopath who instructs the reader on inexpensive, home remedies that puts healing techniques within reach of everyone. Well-rounded and thoughtfully compiled this guide addresses the wholistic triune: the body, mind and spirit. It is filled with effective approaches, doable techniques and treatments. Dr Melva Martin provides multiple options and paths to self-care. You may not choose to use all techniques included in this book, but you will learn the overarching aspects of health and holistic healing and find various treatment options to guide your journey forward. The days of us leaning back and expecting a doctor with fifteen minutes to fix us is over. Worse yet, good health seems harder to achieve in our chemicalized world. The reality is that no doctor will give us unlimited time and when we go to them we are wise to partner with them rather than passively sitting on the sidelines. Therefore, it is time for us to step up and get in relationship with our bodies and learn what we can do for ourselves before we resort to a medicine for every malady along life’s highway. I won’t deny that there is a place for allopathic, western medicine, but it is wise to return most of the care to our homes, our prayers, our kitchens and our gardens. This book will be your reference and your guide. Muriah Williams
