These techniques, acupressure, herbology, and aromatherapy-all disciplines with ancient and honorable traditions-are now accessible to people all over the country at any time of the day or night, even when they travel. Sherman’s third book, Do-It-Yourself Natural Health: Acupressure, Herbal, & Aromatherapy. is specifically designed to be tossed into a pocket or purse, available at a moment’s notice whenever pain, stress, soreness, and fatigue rear their ugly heads.

This book is specifically designed for the non-specialist. Find your problem in the index,and then open to a two-page spread that provides a clear diagram showing the pressure points on the left and on the right, a list of the points, and recommended aromas and herbs, as well as any cautions against use. Ailment by ailment, these charts take up 2/3 of the book. The first third introduces good practices for acupressure, herbology, and aromatherapy, describes the healing process of a number of the most common herbs, and similarly, characterizes ten of the most important acupressure points-all in simple, clear language that anyone can understand without training.
