Learn how to make herbal remedies and why you and your family will be healthier for doing so—and get advice on when it's best to consult a health care professional instead.

Practical advice and recipes are embedded in a rich and inspirational personal narrative written in the strong, authoritative, and charismatic voice of Tieraona Low Dog, physician and teacher at Andrew Weil's Center for Integrative Medicine.
