Pure Skin; Organic Beauty Basics
Spa expert Barbara Close has created a holistic guide to beautiful skin, covering everything from organic products to detox to stress relief. In the tradition of her popular Spa Deck and Well Being, Pure Skin is a natural, no-nonsense approach to skin care. Demystifying beauty-industry hype, Close helps readers understand what makes their skin unique, how skin really functions, and how to make sense of the multisyllabic minefield that is a cosmetics label. With balance as a main ingredient, readers develop a skin-care regimen to suit their individual needs. Forty recipes for natural beauty treatments introduce luxurious alternatives to industrial products. Sensible—and accessible—sections on food and detox reveal simple and effective ways to nourish and restore skin from the inside out. Special attention is given to curatives such as homeopathy and Bach flower remedies, offering invaluable resources for those with hard-to-treat skin problems. Evocative photography and clear advice make this indispensable guide to naturally beautiful skin the next best thing to being born with it.

RADICAL HEALING
This extraordinary book offers nothing less than a new vision of medical care. Rudolph Ballentine, M.D., has created a unique, integrative blending of the primary holistic schools of healing that is far more potent than any one of these alone.

Rudolph Ballentine is a medical doctor who became intrigued by the workings of mind-body medicine and looked beyond the West in his search for understanding. Drawing on thirty years of medical study and practice, Dr. Ballentine has accomplished a singular feat: integrating the wisdom of the great traditional healing systems--especially Ayurveda, homeopathy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, European and Native American herbology, nutrition, psychotherapy, and bodywork. Melded together, the profound principles buried in these systems become clearer and stronger, and a new level of effectiveness becomes possible. Healing and reorganization are accelerated and deepened--physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The result is transformation. The result is radical healing.

Radical Healing harnesses nature's medicinals--plants and other natural substances--with commonsense essentials such as diet, exercise, and cleansing, as well as the most profound principles of spiritual and psychological transformation. In Dr. Ballentine's synthesis, illness is an opportunity for growth that can go far beyond recovery. Through radical healing old habits and attitudes that supported the development of disease fall away, to be replaced by the clarity that comes with a whole new way of being in the world.

From starting a busy day with an energizing juice boost to squeezing in a yoga class after work, rejevenating personal rituals have slowly become part of our daily lives.

Arranged seasonally, it offers recipes for all that ails: steaming teas and cold soothers ease the winter chills, refreshing baths and mists counter the climatic fluctuations of spring, cool tonics and compresses quench summer's dry skin and sunburn. Lavishingly photographed throughout, Well Being is an irresistible volume of refreshing daily comforts that will nurture the body as well as the soul.
