This handy household reference contains sound, unbiased, scientifically grounded information you can trust, written in a friendly, easy-to-read style by one of Canada’s leading health authorities. In this book you will find:

* A thorough A to Z listing of the most common health conditions: from colds and ear infections to arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis

I saw Sherry on CP24 a couple weeks ago and she was talking about how we should be adding Chia seeds to our diet ... so I did!

And she talked about this book so I thought I would check it out.

It's an excellent resource to have if you want to know how to treat ailments naturally.

It's a good book, Sue, and most of the "remedies" are simple.
