NZ Review *Gold medal winner in the 'Living Now Book of the Year - Body' category of the Living Now Book Awards* 'I found Make Yourself Better to be full of useful information, and fascinating historical background relevant for bringing ancient wisdom to practical healthcare in modern times. Philip Weeks writes with clarity and authority, and in a colorful and entertaining style that moved me to enthusiastically turn the pages... I am inspired by Philip's focus on the subtle causes and influences of health, and ill-health. He expertly weaves the principle of - subtle leading to external - into his text, and effectively integrates spiritual precepts with practical tips and guidelines for a healthy and joyful life. -- David Wolf, Ph. D. - Satvatove Institute- Founder; Director This is a readable, safe and sensible, user-friendly book. It fulfils many of the objectives of both traditional and 'modern' naturopathy and is logically presented throughout all 12 chapters. -- British Naturopathic Journal Make Yourself Better has all the answers for those looking to make positive changes to their health and vitality. Packed to the brim with illuminating information on nutrition, fitness, environmental toxins, as well as the relationship between emotions and health, this book will empower you to make informed decisions about your day-to-day life and make you feel better. -- Natural Lifestyle An informative and enjoyable journey through the theory and application of natural healing methods. This is quite simply the best and most accessible book on the subject. -- David Blackwell, Association of Master Herbalists, UK [Make Yourself Better] covers a wide range of insights and teachings from East and West, from ancient to modern. Different from the commonly available health guides, the author presents us with more than just a cookbook's collection of advice and recipes. [The book] reads as a great reference guide and documents at the same time the author's profound insight into the subject. -- Dr Siegfried Trefzer, Director of Hightree Medical Clinic and Associate Physician at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine, UK Having been in practice for over 50 years, I hear daily from patients how confused they often are with the different ways in which medicine is explained in the form of treatments and nutrition. This very comprehensive book is not only a delight to read but is very practically put together, understanding the complexity of health and putting it into a nutshell to make it easy to understand. I am very impressed by the expertise of the writer, and by the way he explains himself clearly and concisely. This book deserves a place in every household. -- Professor Jan de Vries, Troon, Scotland Philip Weeks guides the reader through the process of restoring the body's wellbeing using a simple combination of natural techniques, diet and herbal medicines... The author explores in depth the importance of good nutrition and detoxification, with clear explanations of specific methods and techniques and of the general principles to adhere to. He includes simple recipes and clinically-tested detoxification plans. The health benefits of activity and physical exercise are explored... He also looks in a holistic way at specific emotional difficulties the reader may be faced with... and at how to deal with these in order to achieve wellbeing on a mental, emotional and spiritual level.
