LoGiudice, who has a degree in naturopathic medicine, offers an uncomplicated and user-friendly guide for those seeking “natural” ways to improve their health and appearance. She stumbles when, in the introduction, she makes the overstated claim that naturopathic physicians are the “doctors of the future,” but gets the book back on track with a useful quiz for determining which health issues are most important to you. This is followed by separate chapters on what LoGiudice calls the six “master keys” of health: sleep, exercise, food, relaxation, detoxification, and supplements. Throughout, the author, a self-described “science geek”—despite her specialty not being supported by the scientific community—takes care to lend credence to her recommendations by citing scientific and statistical findings. Readers will find some unusual tips, such as not showering immediately after being out in the sun to allow the skin to synthesize vitamin D, or sipping schizandra berry tea for its calming effects. True health, LoGiudice asserts, is not just physical: self-esteem and helping others are also components of her program, along with following a Mediterranean diet. LoGiudice packs a generous amount of information into her compact beauty guide. (July)
