Ecological Medicine by Kenny Ausubel
Add to cart
US$ 16.95
Drawn largely from presentations given at the annual Bioneers Conference, this pathfinding book—the first in Sierra Club Books' new Bioneers Series—focuses on pragmatic solutions emerging at the fertile edges between the overlapping worlds of environmental restoration and holistic healing. In this kaleidoscopic collection, many of the world’s leading health visionaries show us how human health is inescapably dependent on the health of our environment.

The rich array of voices in this book reflects the collective intelligence of the emerging movement known as Ecological Medicine. Its advocates look to the strategic public health measures that, first, do no harm to the environment and, in turn, successfully improve human health. They call for prevention and precaution as the first line of action. They seek to heal the tragic split between conventional medicine and nature and to conjure nature’s own mysterious capacity for self-repair. They celebrate the virtues of ancient natural-medicine practices but also embrace an integrative medicine that uses the best of all approaches to healing—with special emphasis on the centrality of the human spirit in the healing process. Their inspiring work, described so compellingly in this book, is of critical relevance to everyone concerned about health and the environment.
