Shortly after the success of his autobiography "A Step At A Time", many readers asked Jan de Vries for more information regarding his 45 years of experience in the practice of naturopathy. In "Treating Body, Mind and Soul", Jan shares with his readers the many ways in which he treats his patients and details the more extraordinary cases that he has dealt with over the years. In doing so, he provides a clear idea of how the body really works and what physical problems can occur. He also illustrates how some unusual cases have been dealt with successfully in an unorthodox way using complementary therapies. Some of the astounding cases mentioned in his autobiography are dealt with in this book more explicitly to show the way de Vries sees the body as a whole and how, with some small adjustments, he has brought many people newfound health and happiness. Treating people with mental and emotional health problems is a major aspect of Jan's work and over the years he has developed various alternative methods that complement orthodox treatments.
This book reveals intriguingly his success in treating problems of the mind using breathing exercises, homoeopathic and herbal remedies as well as cranial osteopathy and acupuncture.
Although trained as a pharmacist, Jan de Vries turned to alternative medicine early in his career. He has written extensively on alternative health issues and is the author of the bestselling alternative medicine series BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, WELL WOMEN, NATURE'S GIFT and JAN DE VRIES HEALTHCARE. He has also recently published his autobiography A STEP AT A TIME to rave reviews.
