If you're tired of being sick, tired of taking expensive drugs-or just plain tired-this book will show you how to shape your well being with proven, practical techniques.

Received from the publisher for review.

This one gets two stars. It took New Age to the credible limit and then shoved it over. I was just not impressed. At all. It encompasses everything from blood type diets to fasting, vitamins, and astrology as medicinal. While I certainly didn't agree with the author's views on the vast majority of the recommendations in this mish-mash of suggestions, some may find some useful tidbits.
