Discover our favorite timeless references that everyone interested in healing with nutrition and the power of the mind should read!
As the saying goes, knowledge is power, but only when it’s applied in a suitable manner! In a time when new health scares and unknown impacts of new technologies are all around us, it is ever more important to empower ourselves with the best self-care remedies that don’t make us sicker in the long run. Therefore, seek out qualified practitioners who are considering the holistic ad connected aspects of human body and mind in their approach!
While much useful information is available online, there is also much noise and alarming misinformation of half wisdom and regurgitated majority opinion on the almighty internet. The key is to always cross-check information on at least two independent channels, which are neither politically nor economically motivated to favor a specific approach.
I am also a strong proponent for merit and practical experience over mere degrees and theoretical credentials, so I’m eager to see how many real-life cases have benefited from the natural remedies available today!
That’s why below I'm introducing you to my top favorite 10 paper/audio books with proven nutrition & wellness education!
Some have stood the test of time and have become alternative standard of care references, while others address the newer threats of our time.
Read on below and find your own new favorite go-to resources! Almost all of the books are available in paper and audio format.
