I found Elena Upton clarifies much of the confusion in the work of alternative medicine. The Alternative: Your Family’s Guide to Wellness focuses on teaching about the different methods and cleansing your body of toxins that cause the diseases and illnesses that trouble you. I loved the information on the skin detoxification. Who really thinks of the attention this organ needs? This is a book I will read multiple times and savor the wealth of information the author discloses to her readers. You feel as if the author cares for and about you, an excellent book.
Elena’s depth of experience in research and studies with many of the more important minds in holistic medicine of the day is evident in the warmly accessible manner in which she opens this meaningful book: ‘The best person to heal you is you! That doesn’t mean you need to become a doctor; it means you need to become aware. Become aware of your body, become aware of how to take care of your body, and become aware of choices when faced with a health issue needing attention…Included within these pages is an opportunity to learn holistic options for your health care choices. The information is straightforward, and many conditions are presented as easy-to-read, illustrated “cheat-sheets.’ …We seem to have arrived at a place where doctors depend on test results, rather than direct investigation of the patients themselves. The prognosis is followed by solutions that are either chemically induced or surgical in nature.’ Alternative medicine is different: patient focused.
This impressive book surveys the state of conventional medical care and of holistic medicine, explaining the therapy modalities homeopathy, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine, naturopathic medicine, chiropractic medicine and osteopathic medicine – why we get sick and how to prevent it. This excellent portion of the book is then followed by easily accessible discussions of First Aid innovations as approached by alternative medicine, followed by Common Conditions such as acid-reflux, allergies, fractures, constipation, enuresis, depression, headaches, hiatal hernia, menopause, insomnia, weight loss, etc – each presented as Causes, Symptoms. Conventional Treatments, Natural Therapies, acupuncture, Gemmotherapies, and Homeopathy Therapies and supplements.
The wisdom of Elena Upton’s advice is impressive, and following her concepts is very accessible. She even offers a manner to build our own home pharmacy! This will rapidly become the go-to resource for living a healthy life. Highly Recommended. Grady Harp, September 19
