Live Well, Eat Well, Be Well provides a roadmap for those of us who are
tired of the stresses and nagging illnesses of everyday life. The
guidelines for a healthy life laid out by the Kingston Nature Cure are
easy to follow, and designed with a flexibility that acknowledges
how we really live. Joanna asks that we make radical changes, but in
her explanations of why we are all so sick and tired she easily
persuades us that they will be worth it, that they are essential,
even. Live Well, Eat Well, Be Well, is a lively and informative read, and
with an extensive and usable index it will also act as a reference
book for many healthy years to come.
