Reviews for The Complete Herbal Guide: A Natural Approach to Healing the Body

Healthy Info at Your Kindle Fingertips.
By Dr. Jill 

I have taken some herbalist training and am a collector of books on the subject as I would prefer plants to chemicals to help my body heal. This is an excellent one to keep handy on your book shelf for quick reference. I like having a good reference book with me in my Kindle at all times - you never know when you need the info and want a good source - so this is one to have in the Kindle.

Excellent, Comprehensive, Well Researched, Valuable and USEFUL Resource!

By Dr. Mark William Cochran 
As a holistic doctor and author, I find this book to be an excellent resource with detailed, well supported, and well indexed and cross referenced information! Section One of the book contains an extensive compilation of health conditions, along with measures you can take to treat them. For each condition, there is a description of the condition, its causes, symptoms, concerns related to the condition, home remedies and diet considerations. Section Two is a lengthy compendium of medicinal herbs. For each herb, the authors provide a description of the plant, where it is found, its history, its uses, dosages, and precautions.  This book is a GREAT find, and a wonderful addition to my library. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a useful guide to home use of herbal and other natural remedies.

5 stars for content 
By Nina Harmes 

The information given in this is excellent - but finding the herbs you are interested in is time consuming to say the least. I use this as a reference book - it is not something you read through - you could never remember all the details. wish there was some kind of index that would take you to the herb you want to read about.

An excellent book of resource.
By Sondra 
A good book full of natural resources, no more pharmaceuticals for my allergies. Some of the herbs, I remember as a child, my grandmother was all about home remedies.

The Complete Herbal Guild Directory, by Stacey Chillemi and Dr. Michael Chillemi, is very informative guide/reference to Herbal Supplements. I enjoyed reading about how these herbals can improve my daily diet. I especially enjoyed how each herbal went in depth of what it can be used for, history and how it has been used throughout the years. It was invigorating and it kept me wanting to know more. I highly recommend this book.

Be Kind

This is truly an inspiring book about being kind to others each day! Very good book!

This book I found so meaningful and inspiring as I did not realize all the things that can so easily be done to help others in need or to someone they are appreciated! This book has over 300 sections, each with several tips of kind acts to do (most do not cost any money, just a tiny amount of time)! Love the section of FRIENDS, some of these I did today and it felt great doing them, yet they took just a little bit of my time. Highly regard this book!

The author has done a great job and I look forward to reviewing many more of her books!

Epilepsy and Pregnancy

Source: By Aileen Gardiner, Reader, Review:

I have to say as a young girl growing up I was the same as Stacey Chillemi. When got epilepsy at a really early age in my life and I live in Ireland and when in the beginning there were only 3 books out on epilepsy and they were all doctor language stuff that I couldn't understand about epilepsy.  I wanted help with understanding on how to live with epilepsy.  When I was growing up with epilepsy I had nothing to help me understand it.
As I got older I decided one day that I need to look for more information on how to manage my tables if I was to decide that I want to have a baby sometime soon in my life, so I Google it up and I seen Stacey Chillemi book called epilepsy and pregnancy, so I went to a bookstore in portlaoise called allbooks and I ask them did they have that book and they sad no but they told me they could look it up on there computer for me so they did and they told me that it's not out in the UK or Ireland yet that it's only in the US at the moment but they told me that they could order it in for me and I said ya if you could do that for me it would be brilliant. when I got the book I read the whole book and I got the information I was looking for on how to manage my tables and be pregnant at the same time.
I would like to say that I found Stacey Chillemi's book really helpful and I would like to see more of your books on epilepsy here in Ireland in all of our local bookstores on all book shelves all over Ireland because people in Ireland with epilepsy are really trying to search for more help and information on epilepsy and how to live with it because we dont have anofe information in Ireland on epilepsy and how to live with it and it's even harder for the women in Ireland who have epilepsy. Thanks for your help on epilepsy Stacey Chillemi.
