“Pip Waller addresses some of the most important questions raised in modern herbal practice. Unlike biomedicine, we approach the body by systems because this is what is suited to a nature-based, holistic approach. Holism doesn’t look at the molecular lesion first, but sees it as the end result. Holism also starts with self-care and proceeds to professional care. Pip Waller addresses both levels of proficiency in a systems-based model, ably following up on her earlier book, Holistic Anatomy. I heartily recommend.” —Matthew Wood, author of The Book of Herbal Wisdom and The Earthwise Herbal “Deeply Holistic is an incredible resource. Pip writes with a gentle wisdom that infuses the pages with her deep knowledge in a most accessible way. A great book for anyone wanting to understand the workings of the body more fully and discover ways in which they can care for their own body, mind, and spirit more holistically.” —Rachel Corby, author of Rewild Yourself and The Medicine Garden “What a feat! [Waller] writes such a warm, comprehensive, and contemporary guide to living healthily in the widest sense, embracing a wonderfully insightful and compassionate view of our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual selves. I thoroughly recommend this book to accompany anyone on a journey to health and self-healing.” —Anne McIntyre, fellow of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, member of the Ayurvedic Practitioners’ Association, and author of The Ayurveda Bible “Deeply Holistic is a highly engaging and well-written book on how we as human beings function. I especially like how Pip has interwoven the self-care element, which is clearly laid out and easily accessible. I shall certainly be dipping into this book with my massage and anatomy and physiology students and clients. I would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in human health and happiness” —Celine Samson, founder of Tonic Mind Body “Deeply Holistic is a map to optimal health and well-being where you are the explorer. It is filled with fabulous recipes and fun exercises that nourish the body, mind, and spirit.” —Lucy Harmer, Celtic Shamanic High Priestess and author of Discover Your Spirit Animal: The Wisdom of the Shamans and Shamanic Astrology: Understanding Your Spirit Animal Sign “This is a much-needed manual for holistic living! It is one of the few books I’ve read that is genuinely holistic and very balanced in its orientation—drawing from both scientific understanding and traditional wisdom while free of the many fads that are popular in the health literature these days. I will definitely be recommending Deeply Holistic to my clients and students.” —Michael Vertolli, director of the Living Earth School of Herbalism “Reading Deeply Holistic is an awe-inspiring, spiritual experience. Waller not only inspires the genuine desire to tend, heal, and care for the self—what a beautiful gift —but also provides the necessary tools to take vibrant health into your own hands.” —Savannah Clayton, holistic health coach at Nourish Shakti “Pip Waller’s previous book, Holistic Anatomy, filled a valuable gap between the world of the anatomist and the world of the therapist; this equally important book takes these themes one stage further with practical advice around holistic health and wellbeing for practitioner and student alike. It’s a book I will be recommending to my students.” —Jessica Garbett, owner of Yinspire Yoga “A deep and gracious dive into body-mind-spirit healing. Read, implement, and transform yourself back to whole.” —Paula Youmell, RN, Wise Woman Nurse®, author of Hands on Health and coauthor of Weaving Healing Wisdom

Body into Balance$18.50
An antacid or an aspirin may soothe your pain, but it doesn’t cure the cause of your symptoms. Headaches, indigestion, fatigue, allergies, anxiety, eczema, high blood pressure, and other conditions are clues to a deeper imbalance in your body, and learning to read those clues is a key step in maintaining optimal health. Herbalist Maria Noël Groves shows you how to read your body’s signals and support your own wellness with herbal remedies and other natural treatments. You’ll learn how each of your major body systems — respiratory, digestive, immune, nervous, memory, reproductive, circulatory, and more — optimally functions, and you’ll discover how to use natural remedies to nourish and repair problem areas, restore lost vitality, support your body as a whole, and prevent future problems. Groves includes in-depth instructions, with step-by-step photographs, for making your own herbal remedies, as well as expert guidance on buying and effectively using commercial preparations.
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.
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.
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?
