Wylde on Health by Bryce Wylde

Wylde on Health
Your Best Choices in the World of Natural Health
by Bryce Wylde

Trade Paperback, 352 pages

I was pleasantly surprised at how thorough and insightful this book on health was. I have to admit, my early flower-child years with parents who eschewed regular doctors for naturopaths, etc., left me suspicious of alternative medicine for quite some time. (Note to all hippie parents out there - if your child wets the bed - suggest peeing before going to sleep, rather than vibrationally charged homeopathic medicines. Just sayin'.)

Bryce Wilde encourages his readers to take charge of their health through education, nutrition, exercise, traditional medicine and alternative medicine - together for a whole-being, whole-person, healthiest living possible. I love that. He also calls out the myths and snake-oil types of alternative medicines and gives you all the information you need to make healthy choices.

The well-organized, quite thorough book is also filled with links that can be scanned with a QR Smart Device and/or accessed by web page - to view video clips that further illustrate the subjects.

Wylde on Health goes above and beyond expectations and will be the perfect guide book for a healthier new year and a healthier new you.
