Here’s what people have said:
“I’ve seen many books on herbs and healing, but they are usually long winded, overly complicated and frankly, sometimes just too ‘way out there’. Mr Mitchell’s fine collection of easy to prepare, and easy to use remedies for nutrition as well as for medicinal purposes is exactly what the holistic doctor ordered – information packed, precise, to the point, and most of all, really PRACTICAL for us 3rd millennium city dwellers!”
Silvia Hartmann, PhD, Director, Association For Meridian Energy Therapies, The AMT, United Kingdom
“I thoroughly enjoyed your book and would like to say how refreshingly straightforward and clear it was to understand and implement your suggestions. This book is a far cry from so many self-help manuals which refer to slightly exotic ingredients which one never has on hand and is a delight to use with very sound advice. I highly recommend it.”
Nicola Quinn, Author of “Life Without Panic Attacks”
