Christina’s passion for astrology, combined with her spiritual beliefs, developed her interest in holistic medicine. A Registered Nurse with many years’ experience, she qualified in Indian Ayurveda healing and has, through her own research and practical application, become aware that the average person’s well-being can be maintained, indeed improved, by a range of alternative practices.
She does not discount Western Medicine but believes that in many instances the answers lie elsewhere and an open mind is crucial to our emotional and physical well-being. Aware that there was nothing available for the average person to acquaint them with these other beliefs, she has written this book designed to explain other health options and idealogies, and provide a detailed description of each. Written in a very easy-to-read style, she has still managed to provide a wealth of knowledge and understanding. So if your well-being is important to you, you will find this book invaluable. Christina practises worldwide and lives in sunny Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. She can be contacted at: www.christinarichterauthor.com/
This is a good book for anyone who wants a sound introduction to holistic health practices. Christina is drawing on her experiences as a nurse, an astrologer and in complementary health to give both an overview and useful details on how you can optimize your well-being. She draws together many threads and weaves them into a helpful whole. I particularly liked the tips she offers from Ayurveda and the practical suggestions for making better use of the day based on body rhythms and what works best at particular times. There is something here for everyone. There are lots of texts on holistic health and self-help but this is a solid practical guide which draws together material from many sources and makes it simple (without being simplistic) and accessible. If you aren’t sure where to start, why not start here?
