Summary

Invitation to Holistic Health: A Guide to Living a Balanced Life provides solid principles and proven measures to promote optimal health and well-being using a holistic approach. Divided into three parts: Strengthening Your Inner Resources, Developing Health Lifestyle Practices, and Taking Charge of Challenges To The Mind, Body, and Spirit, this easy-to-read guide provides "how-to" information when dealing with a variety of health-related issues that include, but are not limited to, nutrition, exercise, herbal remedies, and homeopathic remedies. The Second Edition has been completely revised and includes current research on the effectiveness and safety of herbs and other complementary and alternative medicine therapies. The chapter on Menopause has been updated to reflect current thinking about the safe use of estrogen replacement, soy products, and other approaches to manage symptoms and new suggested readings and resources have been provided for further exploration into topics.
