If you’re confused about all the different alternative therapies available today then this book is invaluable. In it Dr. Weil discusses all the various healing modalities from allopathic (Western) medicine to Naturopathy and Shamanism in a clear and objective manner allowing the reader to feel confident and informed about the plethora of alternative therapies on the market. Personally, I find that a lot of the information on the internet and elsewhere about conventional and alternative therapies to be biased, misleading and at times frightening, so I appreciate what feels like a balanced approach to health and wellbeing wherever I can find it.
