As our awareness expands and we begin to understand and respect the need to take serious care of our health and well-being, there are many books out there today to help us on our journey in all areas of our wellness.
However, some clearly stand out more than others in their worth and value. What stands out for me in a really good book is a deep holistic focus and practical aspect. There are many other topics and areas of life where it is fun to be philosophical and theorize. When it comes to health and wellness, a practical aspect is what makes the difference. We need to walk the talk, not just talk it.
One such book is Madeleine Marentette’s Grail Springs Holistic Detox. This is a book that is true to its word in that it focuses on our holistic being as a whole. Aside from being highly practical, the cornerstone property of this book to address healing, health and wellness, is a mind, body and spirit foundation. This has become the basis of how I see optimal health today. There can be no optimal health without addressing, balancing and brining harmony to these three key areas of our being.
And so it is a great pleasure to share with you all my thoughts and experience with this book, as I know the great potential it has to help so many people, on so many levels. It can help you further understand yourself as a holistic being. It can help you understand or take part in a detox program. It can help you understand the mind-body connection in the creation of disease. And it can help you live your best life ever, full of the perfect health and wellness that each one of us deserves.
