You've taken the first step toward optimum health. This book will give you more information about my philosophy along with answers to some questions I am asked most frequently.
I wrote Spontaneous Healing
and 8 Weeks to Optimum Health
because I wanted to call attention to the innate, intrinsic nature of the healing process. I've always believed that the body can heal itself if you give it a chance. Why? Because it has a healing system. If you're feeling well, it's important to know about this system so that you can enhance your well-being. If you are ill, you'll also want to know about it because it is your best hope of recovery.
To maintain optimum health requires commitment. This book--and the others in the series--can give you much of the basic information you need about diet, supplements, common illnesses, natural remedies, and healthy living.
All of these questions originated on "Ask Dr. Weil," my program on the World Wide Web. If you still have questions, come visit the clinic at www.drweil.com.
