One of Australia's leading naturopaths and nutritionists, shares her expertise in foods, health and nutrition, and shows you how to care for yourself, naturally and easily, using food as medicine at home.

To reap the most out of your life, invest time and thought into your health. And enjoy every moment of it. Janella Purcell knows that the food you eat affects your mind and spirit as well as your physical body. In this invaluable book she shares her expertise in food, health and nutrition, and shows you how to care for yourself naturally, using food as medicine at home.

Entertaining, practical and comprehensive, this revised edition of Elixir covers a wide variety of subjects and information, ranging from suggestions for healthy ageing and why you should use organic produce to tips for those suffering from headache, fatigue, immunity problems, fertility issues and digestive complaints.

Janella Purcell's Elixir introduces you to what Eastern philosophy has been practising for thousands of years -- the interconnectedness of the body, mind and spirit and how this affects your state of mind, health and personality. Shortlisted for The World Food Media Awards in the category of Best Health Nutrition Book, Elixir is a book to use, keep and treasure.

          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.
