Martin instructs the reader on inexpensive, home remedies and healing techniques that puts a healthy lifestyle within the reach of everyone seeking an alternative to pharmaceutical drugs. The author demonstrates alternative ways of healing by returning to a cheaper, natural way of living in a holistic manner. The author includes a range of natural remedies to use when sick. The wellness model described by the author, begins with the spirit within each person, a spark of the greater “Spirit” which has various names such as Yaweh, Jehovah, God or Universal Energy.

“The days of leaning back and expecting a medical doctor with fifteen minutes of time to fix people is over,” Martin says. “It is time for people to learn what they can do for themselves before resorting to a medicine for every malady along life's highway.”
