Your health history and your healing prescriptions are written all over your body ... Listening to and obeying your body’s cues can help you become much more self reliant regarding your health. What are some of these cues? desiring specific foods breathing patterns skin blemishes itches certain behaviors What does a craving for sweet or sour really mean in your body? How should you best respond? What does the appearance and location of a mole mean? How does the location of your pain direct you to proper therapeutic choices? The Twelve Elixirs are your guide. They are your birthright. Mastering any one of them will direct you to better health. Such self-reliance requires basic knowledge and calls for the common sense health guidance once acquired at the knees of our mothers and fathers. Patient X grew back a chipped tooth. Patient Y regained her sight. Patient Z eliminated her chronic pain. They did so in part by partaking of The Twelve Elixirs. Mastering the art of living healthfully is neither complicated nor difficult; it only requires awakening the knowledge you already possess, and nobody knows your body like you do.

And indeed, this expert in healthy living, alternative healing, and the mind-body connection has helped millions of people find relief from what ails them. Called “the bible of natural medicine” by Larry Dossey, MD, Natural Health, Natural Medicine is a comprehensive resource for everything you need to know to maintain optimum health and treat common conditions. This landmark book incorporates Dr. Weil’s theories into one useful and readable reference, featuring general diet and nutrition information as well as simple recipes, answers to readers’ most pressing questions, a catalogue of over a hundred home remedies, and numerous practical tips. This new edition includes updated scientific findings—and has been expanded to provide trustworthy advice about low-carb diets, hormone replacement therapy, Alzheimer’s, attention deficit disorder, reflux disease, autism, type 2 diabetes, erectile dysfunction, the flu, and much more. “Weil, a Harvard Medical School graduate and a member of the advisory panel for the Congressional Study of Alternative Cancer Therapies, advocates preventative health maintenance as a means of combating future painful and expensive therapies.
