Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This "is not a guide to healing medical problems with natural substances," Mayell (52 Steps to Simple Natural Health) avers in his well-researched, cogently written compendium. Rather, he emphasizes how one's overall health can be maintained or improved with the use of commonly available vitamins, nutritional supplements, herbs and (given shorter shrift) homeopathic remedies. In the first section, he describes in clinical detail the "Top 20 Natural Substances" for the "stay-well remedy chest." The bulk of the volume is taken up in "Using Herbs and Nutrients in Your Everyday Life," which features such chapters as "Boost Your Immunity," "Stimulate Your Sexuality" and "Lower Your Cancer Risk." Here Mayell describes which substances to take (and avoid) and-just as important-the recommended quantities to derive desired health benefits. To help readers choose among a broad array of products, each chapter includes a "Where to Start" guide. An extensive resource section caps off this densely packed yet eminently readable reference.

From the Publisher

Almost all the many books on herbs, nutritional supplements and other natural remedies are oriented toward curing disease. This book tells how to stay well and change your lifestyle with its healthful, extremely effective, natural alternatives to caffeine, sleeping pills, tranquilizers, antacids, laxatives, and other over-the-counter remedies. The book delineates and demystifies the top 20 most popular natural herbs and nutrients and tells how to use natural substances to: boost immunity, enhance strength and endurance, increase energy, elevate mood, stimulate sexuality, prevent heart disease, lower cancer risk, extend life, boost brain power, calm nerves, balance bodily functions, develop the senses, keep skin smooth and supple, revitalize the digestive system, and lose weight. Off-the-Shelf Natural Health also explains how and when to use natural substances and how to combine them most effectively into a personalized health regimen.
