My essential oil journey (obsession) began a few years ago and ever since that fateful day in my best friend’s living room, I have enjoyed soaking up all the information about these magical liquids in dark colored bottles. Adina Grigore, founder of S.W. Basics and author of Just the Essentials, fell into the world of essential oils based on a need. She had major skin issues and after visiting doctor after doctor and receiving multiple medicines, all with no relief, she gave up. “Who knew,” Grigore says, “that simple, natural ingredients could do more than smell pretty and taste nice—that they contained potent plant-based compounds that offered real benefits for your skin?” Thus began her essential oil journey.

Some people seem to have lives full of tragedy. One thing after another occurs leaving them on edge waiting for the next shoe to drop. All the while, other people may go about their lives relatively unscathed. In Integral Healing, Lynne Feldman shares her health crisis as one of many trials she has faced in life. When she was diagnosed with breast and lung cancers in 2010, the baggage of her past returned to the forefront.

In essence, its general goal is to combine various theories of healing (physical, spiritual, emotional, mental) in a way that uniquely suits each person. As Lynne struggled to come to terms with her diagnosis and her own mortality, she began to rely more heavily on

Does your doctor truly know best? Or are you your best advocate when it comes to curing yourself of a chronic disease? The Disease Delusion gives readers confidence to – if not cure their most common diseases – understand the nature of their disease for better treatment outcomes. Chronic diseases are those nagging long-lasting ailments that we just wish would go away, but won’t anytime soon: heart disease, AD, depression, cancer and so on. Doctors treat acute (temporary types) of ailments with antibiotics, but our chronic diseases have paralyzed our country into a health crisis. Symptoms are often treated first with little concern about the actual root cause of the problem. Well, treating symptoms only will only get you so far…

According to Dr. Bland, if doctors practice a new model of functional medicine and strive to focus on causes of

The book Female Brain Gone Insane: An Emergency Guide For Women Who Feel Like They Are Falling Apart by Mia Lundin, founder of The Center for Hormonal and Nutritional Balance, gave me a better understanding of the female mind in peril. There are bits of information here that I was able to convey to my mother, my girlfriend, my grandmother, and my co-workers; all seemed appreciative of the advice I had to give, and all thought I had acquired some newfound pool of wisdom when it came to females and their troubles. If only they knew that it was all from this little book!

When dishing out advice, one must usually have had their fill of trials and tribulations in order to be knowledgeable enough in a certain area. Mia Lundin seems to know just what makes
