Lost Secrets of Humoral Healthcare Revealed

An informative book on diet, nutrition, and how to make simple medicines the humoral way.

An informative book on diet, nutrition, and how to make simple medicines the humoral way.
Prior to the adoption of chemicals and minerals to cure illnesses 'introduced' to the body, medical experts understood that controlling humoral balance is central to healthfulness. Curing problems that originate 'within' the body, and preventing them from occurring in the first place, these learned people knew, are two sides of the same coin. Thus, good health is maintained by eating the right foods at the right time, and improved by taking individually-tailored simple but effective humoral medicines.
Become Your Own Doctor does four things: It describes the nature of humorism, the humoral body and medicine - discussing why for centuries it was so important in maintaining good health and preventing illnesses; it explains how to easily recognise bodily imbalances in order to make informed choices about lifestyle, dietary regimes and medicines; it discusses the humoral characteristics and medical attributes of a wide range of commonly available foods; and it explains how to simply make a range of medicines that can be used both to protect the household from contracting illnesses and to help cure existing ones.

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

I just loved this 216 page self care guardian. I gained new insight about alternative medicine, the history of it and even how to make my own from herbs and stuff I have around. It is written in the old style and it brings me such comfort. I learned about the foods I eat and how to best utilize them and so much more. I would recommend this great find to anyone wanting a different slant on taking care of ourselves. Thanks Paul, this is wonderful. ~ Riki Frahmann, Mystic Living Today

Classical and Renaissance physicians regarded food as medicine. Paul Lloyd revives their ancient science in his guidebook for healthy eating based on understanding the four humoral types: choleric, sanguine, melancholic and phlegmatic. Different foods can have positive or negative effects, and Lloyd explains how to find the right balance for optimal health. He includes tried-and-tested recipes utilising common household and garden ingredients to treat a range of ailments according to humoral principles. Paul Lloyd has tapped into a cornucopia of wisdom that we can apply in these modern times of conflicting health advice. ~ Ruth Parnell, subeditor and book reviewer, NEXUS Magazine
