Vitamins, Minerals, and More!
Author: Michelle J. Bever
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
It is always better to walk in knowledge than blindly without knowing why. I am one who wants to know why, what, and where. This book explains the reason why you need and should eat the foods for each Vitamin, Mineral, and more. It explains for each Vitamin, Minerals, Trace Element, Cell Salt, and more the foods that go with each and what function in the body that they help with. Deficiencies are how our body reacts (symptoms) when there is not enough. Simple and to the point. Symptoms are what tells us there is something wrong that we need to correct. It is so easy to look up your symptoms and start the process of healing by either eating the foods or taking what is needed.

Author: Massimo Mangialavori
The first installment of Massimo Mangialavori's Materia Medica Clinica presents fourteen remedies-some old, some new-in colorful and extensive detail. Here is Lac leoninum, the ambitious yet troubled king; Lac equinum, the loyal, principled squire; Lac humanum, the altruistic yet self-interested servant; and Lac delphinum, the warm-hearted humanitarian. Important questions are asked and answered: How do Milk remedies struggle to overcome dependence upon their family? Why are they so indecisive? What differences emerge between remedies made from the milk of wild vs. domesticated, and predator vs. prey animals? Mangialavori elucidates his Method of Complexity via natural history, personality, prominent themes and symptoms with an engaging style that is well-organized and easily accessible. Cured cases provide vivid, real-life portraits, and demonstrate how this materia medica derives directly from clinical material. A differential diagnosis, thematic and common ailment repertories, and repertory additions are also included. Just as milk is associated with the beginning of life, it is fitting that The Milk Remedies is the initial book for this evolving series.
