"This book is not about radical healing but sensible healing. It reminds me that much of what we call New Age healing is really Age Old healing. It is a source of wisdom and empowerment for every individual. One need not agree with every word to realize it is an excellent resource and a dose of medicine that everyone can enjoy taking. The side effects are all beneficial."
