The author of Asian Health Secrets, the highly acclaimed guide to herbal remedies and Asian health practices, has turned her considerable talents to a comprehensive program that will benefit women and men across a broad age spectrum. Personal Renewal is the culmination of Letha Hadady's many quests throughout the world for rejuvenation secrets, curative treatments, and restorative techniques that promote the health and integrity of the entire person. Additional benefits of this program are beauty, happiness, and a solid sense of well-being.
        
Open the pages of this book and you will find yourself under the guidance of a personal trainer of a different stripe, one who will show you the basic principles of living an ageless life: how to have a better-toned, more youthful body, how to avoid emotional distress and attain a peaceful state of mind, and how to nourish your body inside and out for maximum well-being.
        
In Personal Renewal Letha Hadady provides a fount of knowledge for those interested in truly changing their lives: questionnaires for self-diagnosis, advice on designing personal health regimens, exercises to firm and strengthen the body and enhance sexuality, diet and herbal supplements, visualization techniques, and restorative treatments, as well as recipes for curative baths and self-massage procedures to enliven the skin and restore sexual energy. The result--you look and feel beautiful, while enjoying a more vital life.

Review:

It's hard to think of a physical or psychological problem that this book does not address--and from two or three different directions. Whether the solution to a health concern lies in a cup of herbal tea, a dose of traditional Chinese medicine, a massage, a visualization exercise, or a combination of all four, Letha Hadady extends a wise, helpful hand and walks us through her vast store of alternative-medicine knowledge.

Hadady, an herbalist, acupuncturist, and author of Asian Health Secrets, bases her healing treatments on the theory that there's an original and positive you that the right therapies can uncover. She says that the illness, injury, or just lack of joy that's keeping your original self under wraps can be overcome with the use of herbs, homeopathic remedies, Eastern (Chinese, Japanese) medicine, massage, and visualization techniques. Blending different approaches to healing is her strategy--she often combines a dose of homeopathic medicine with herbs and Eastern medicine to forge the most effective cure.

Personal Renewal provides solutions to problems ranging from the mundane to the spiritual. Is carpal tunnel syndrome a problem for you? Try the regimen in chapter 6, "Computer-Related Stress and Pain." Feeling angry and exhausted while going through a tough personal time, like a divorce? Skip to chapter 16, "Heal Your Broken Heart." Class reunion coming up? Treat yourself to an herbal facelift using the recipes and techniques laid out in "Defy the Law of Gravity."

Each chapter opens with a statement of the goals to be met and a list of the materials you will need. (One caveat: certain ingredients in the medicines that Hadady recommends may strike some as over the top--like the silver, gold, or processed coal, i.e., bitumen, supplements.) Recipes, a glossary of herbal terms with pronunciation guidelines (especially helpful for the Chinese terms), and a directory of suppliers for the rarer products round out this clearly written, inspiring handbook to uncovering the original you. --Stefanie Durbin
