ABOUT THE BOOK
Millions of people worldwide struggle every day to lose weight and fit into their ideal dress or pant size. Even when people try their hardest with the latest celebrity dieting craze, slimming down can be very difficult. There are thousands of fad diets on the market that are designed to speed up the weight loss process, many of which are unsustainable or difficult to manage. Alternative therapies act as a kinder, and often less challenging, alternative to dropping excess pounds. They adopt a natural approach that tends to your mental and physical well being.
Alternative therapies for weight loss are no longer exclusive to those who live in cosmopolitan areas. There has now been an emergence of therapists who have opened offices across the country, ready to offer their services. Even small towns have alternative therapists who can help you take approaches to your diet and overall health that you will not get from a fad diet or doctor. It is also possible to find herbal treatments in health food shops, as well as online.
