Format: Paperback
Jill Rosemary Davies is highly qualified to write a book regarding natural healing. She holds a doctorate in herbal medicine and has often worked with various EU legislatures to insure the safety and effectiveness of herbal medicines. Experienced homeopaths will find the wealth of information in her book concise, insightful, and well-organized. Davies covers not only the standard topics such as herb selection, essential oil use, and home remedies, but also touches on such items as massage therapy, breathing techniques, and detoxification.

My concern, however, is that the book is marketed to beginners. Novices to homeopathy and natural healing may be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of different topics covered. Or worse, completely turned off to the idea of natural healing as something that is far to complex and time consuming for the average person to effectively handle. While most health-conscious readers with an interest in natural healing can probably handle reading about the benefits of owning a juicer and how to select fruits and vegetables for juicing, Davies discussion of how to properly select seeds for use in a sprouter and on the need to grown your own barley might come across too extreme.

Davies also has a tendency to slip into preaching, speaking in absolutely regarding the differences between organic and non-organic foods, the dangers of dairy, and even the toxidity of farm-raised fish. While I personally prefer organic foods, for example, I have yet to see any decisive scientific research confirming the claims Davies makes. She claims "eggs are potential causes of diseases like arthritis," that butter "is basically rancid and has lots of free radicals," and "all meat putrefies in the intestine and strips calcium from the body.
