Here is an excerpt of our discussion. Be sure to listen to the podcast for the full, 45-min, interview/discussion!!
Dr. Mara Karpel: What inspired you to write your book?
Stacey Chillemi: The reason I wrote this book was to help others realize that many conditions can be healed through herbal treatments, the nutrients and vitamins we obtain through the food we consume and alternative medicine (meditation, yoga, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage therapy etc…)
Dr. Mara Karpel: How did you come up with the title?
Stacey Chillemi: There are two important aspects to the title. “The Complete Guide to Natural Healing: A Natural Approach to Healing the Body and Maintaining Optimal Health Using Herbal Supplements, Vitamins, Minerals, Fruits, Vegetables and Alternative Medicine” reflects our goal to encourage individuals to take a proactive approach to dealing with the health issues they encounter in their lives. The Complete Guide to Natural Healing: A Natural Approach to Healing the Body and Maintaining Optimal Health Using Herbal Supplements, Vitamins, Minerals, Fruits, Vegetables and Alternative Medicine provides the tools that empower people to address and resolve their health issues in a natural and healthier way rather than running to the doctor or store for prescription or over-the-counter drugs. Secondly, the book encourages readers to consider “A Drug-Free Approach to Living a Happy, Healthy Life”; the second purpose of this book is to remind the reader that medication is never a primary intervention. The research consistently reveals the importance of developing healthier, more natural options, coping skills, adapting this lifestyle into their life and applying it to different situations in their own life.
Dr. Mara Karpel: Is there a message in your book that you want readers to grasp?
Stacey Chillemi: There are several messages we hope our readers acquire from reading the book. First, everyone has health issues both mental and physical that they must endure at some point in their life. This book teaches the reader how they can improve their health by simply using the natural products from the earth. Second, health conditions can be treated but you have to take an active role in resolving your condition.
