More and more people are concerned about their health, which is why alternative therapies are gaining popularity. Alternative medicine refers to methods of healing without the need for chemically based treatment. These remedies are not part of what is regarded as conventional medicine. With Natural Remedies and Alternative Therapy: To Use at Home, you can learn about various options such as aromatherapy, reiki, magnetotherapy, and others. Using these modalities, you will be able to address different health problems with the most appropriate treatment. At the beginning of each chapter, Ashton Manson provides context by relating a story about the method she is about to discuss. If there are potential adverse side effects, she discusses them openly.
Ashton Manson provided her personal experiences when applying these methods. I appreciated her objective way of speaking because she promotes the use of alternative therapies but does not dismiss conventional methods. Manson recommends talking to a doctor before starting certain treatments. She respects opinions equally and tries to share the benefits that nature itself brings us. Natural Remedies and Alternative Therapy is a concise guide, so Manson limits herself to mentioning the main elements of each category. The research is thorough, although the material provided is basic. It serves more as a reference to know which method is the most convenient to combat a specific health problem. It is nevertheless a thorough enough introduction to encourage you to try these alternative remedies.
