Naturopathy or naturopathic medicine is a medical system that focuses on the body’s innate vitalisitc ability to heal and maintain itself.. Naturopathic philosophy favours a holistic approach and finding the least invasive measures necessary for symptom improvement or resolution, thus encouraging minimal use of surgery and unnecessary drugs.

According to the association of accredited naturopathic medical colleges, naturopathic medicine is defined by principles rather than by methods or modalities. Above all, it honours the body’s innate wisdom to heal. According to the American Cancer Society, naturopathy is a complete alternative care system that uses a wide range of approaches, such as nutrition, herbs, manipulation of the body, exercise, stress reduction and acupuncture.

Who suggested this book?
The The Small Subconscious Diet by Kieran McGarrigan was recommended by Janine Hornsby from Austin Macauley Publishers. You can find out more about Janine Hornsby here or read their book recommendation below.

This book is an intermingling of topics, firstly addressing the challenge that occurs around diet and food, as in the common day, both appear to go hand-in-hand in our search for well-being. The book aims to identify that first to tackle the physical world of food, we must tackle the mental diet and how we have been applying this mental diet to our world since our birth into this world.

Do you want to see real physical change and truth for yourself rather than just adding another book to the shelf with no real change occurring? If yes, then this book will take you on a journey to do that. Information in this book will challenge and compel you to address the real issues that may be occurring with food or the part of life that food is impacting you and impacting on your fulfilment.

I do not consider this a diet book at all – but well and truly a book designed to diet the human soul, starting with the thoughts we think or the thoughts that have been imprinted on us from an early age. Start the journey, start the mental diet and begin your way back to not only a healthy weight physically but a healthy weight in all aspects of your life.
