Synopsis

In his #1 New York Times bestseller Spontaneous Healing, Dr. Andrew Weil opened our eyes to the body's wondrous ability to naturally heal itself. And after the tremendous response he received from countless readers, he launched the website "Ask Dr. Weil (www.drweil.com)," which is a top-rated program on the Internet. Now, in this easy-to-use book, Dr. Weil tells you everything you need to know about vitamins, minerals, and herbs.

In VITAMINS AND MINERALS Dr. Weil addresses questions such as:

How good are multivitamins?
Does B-12 really boost energy?
Which herbs will improve my sex life?
What is Dr. Weil's antioxidant cocktail?
Does echinacea fight colds?


And many more!

Whether you are eager to learn about the best path to recovery from illness or just looking to improve your overall well-being, Dr. Weil's expert advice will gently guide you toward the healthier, fuller life you deserve.

Excerpt

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.
