This book is amazing! It has become my reference for pretty much everything that is going on with my body! You really are what you eat and Janella explains how nature really is the best source!
Highly educational read for those into nutrition. Good Value.
Great book for information on everyday ailments and foods that we eat.
Was not impressed with information on use of essential oils in skincare. The ratio of essential oils was too high and could cause allergic reactions. Think that she should have avoided this information as it is not her area of expertise.
I use this book as a constant "go to" when thinking about food and health. It's practical and easy to understand.
