“Much of the modern illness we face is a reflection of life out of balance — with nature, with daily rhythms, with ourselves. Maria Noel Groves offers readers an opportunity to return to nature by returning to ourselves. This is the beginning of our healing.” — Aviva Romm, M.D., author of Botanical Medicines for Women’s Health, winner of the James Duke Award for Excellence in Botanical Literature “Through great insight and experience, Maria Noel Groves empowers us to be our own healers.” — Christopher Hobbs, Ph.D., L.Ac., A.H.G., Institute for Natural Products Research (INPR) “Maria Noel Groves guides readers to use botanicals safely and effectively, with an understanding that herbs offer the greatest health benefits when incorporated into a daily regiment to prevent disease.” — David Winston, R.H.(A.H.G.) “If you are floundering with your health care and need some guidance, this easy-to-understand introduction to herbal medicine is your book.” — Sharol Marie Tilgner, N.D., author of Herbal Medicine From the Heart of the Earth “Those who are interested in managing their health holistically may wish to incorporate herbs into their regime. Groves, an experienced herbalist, provides the necessary tools for doing just that… A solid introduction to herbal medicine.” — Library Journal

The Contagion Myth$14.99
For readers of Plague of Corruption, Thomas S. Cowan, MD, and Sally Fallon Morell ask the question: are there really such things as “viruses”? Or are electro smog, toxic living conditions, and 5G actually to blame for COVID-19?
The Disease Delusion$12.99
For decades, Dr. Jeffrey Bland has been on the cutting edge of Functional Medicine, which seeks to pinpoint and prevent the cause of illness, rather than treat its symptoms. Managing chronic diseases accounts for three quarters of our total healthcare costs, because we’re masking these illnesses with pills and temporary treatments, rather than addressing their underlying causes, he argues. Worse, only treating symptoms leads us down the path of further illness.
Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain$22.95
Chronic pain includes many types of conditions from a variety of causes. This book is designed to help those suffering from chronic pain learn to better manage pain so they can get on with living a satisfying, fulfilling life. This resource stresses four concepts: each person with chronic pain is unique, and there is no one treatment or approach that is right for everybody; there are many things people with chronic pain can do to feel better and become more active and involved in life; with knowledge and experimentation, each individual is the best judge of which self-management tools and techniques are best for him or her; and, the responsibility for managing chronic pain on a daily basis rests with the individual and no one else. Acknowledging that overcoming chronic pain is a daily challenge, this workbook provides readers with the tools to overcome that test. A Moving Easy Program CD, which offers a set of easy-to-follow exercises that can be performed at home, is also included.
