    Default Natural Living/Organic book thread

    CJ and Julie's recent book suggestion made me think that we should have a thread here in the Natural Living forum where we can post book titles we've enjoyed (or hated!) in this subject area.


    Feel free to post any that you wish!

    Some of his suggestions are very extreme, but there is loads of good information about diseases and toxins.

    I enjoyed both books equally! They had alot of great information, and I've learned alot in the past week or so! I'm new at all of this, and I already feel so much better about what I've learned and read.

    Picked up a few at the library over the weekend - I've only skimmed them a bit so far.

    From just skimming through, I don't necessarily care for the layout of the 2nd book. It looks confusing, but I'm sure it'll probably make sense if I sit down and read it properly! LOL

    Today at the library, I picked up Creating a Healthy Household, by Lynn Marie-Bower. It looks like it pretty much covers everything!
