It’s a well-known phenomenon in the natural foods industry that newcomers are shy about asking questions, unsure of where to begin and confused by the maze of contradictory information available to them. Many of these people come directly from their doctor’s offices with new diagnoses of food allergies, bowel issues, even cancer or other life-threatening illness, and they enter our doors with trepidation, if not outright disbelief in “health food stores.” For them, credible information is crucial. Enter Larry Cook and his Beginner’s Guide to Natural Living. Where other health manuals fall short in over or underestimating their reader’s knowledge of (and interest in) natural living, Larry offers readers a compelling introduction to the very idea of “natural living,” avoiding common pitfalls like frightening statistics, unattainable goals or overly detailed descriptions of how to proceed.
Instead, readers are treated to simple, straightforward information (fully referenced in the back of the book) on all the major points of natural living, including why organically grown food is better, why to filter tap water, when supplements should be added, and even when and why to undertake a detoxification.
Along the way, readers are also introduced to adjunct ideas they may never have considered but which could play a role in either their illness or their recovery: holistic dentistry, internal acid-alkaline balance, genetically modified foods, even a short background on why natural therapies are effective and are therefore suppressed by the mainstream media and conventional medical conglomerate. I unreservedly recommend Larry Cook’s Guide to Natural Living as the perfect starting place for anyone seeking to improve their health and quality of life.

One of the most important steps you can take in the direction of abundant health is to carefully choose where you shop for food. It’s a good idea, whenever possible, to shop at local farmer’s markets, local natural food stores, or chains like Whole Foods and Wild Oats. And Larry Cook shows you how. As an introduction of many aspects of a natural lifestyle, his book makes it easy and fun to take care of yourself. Today’s choices determine tomorrow’s health.

Live Naturally: Improve Your Health Today
Larry Cook is not intimidated by self-serving public relations blitzes from the food marketers, chemical companies, government bureaucracies, and agricultural industries that would mislead you about the food you’re now eating and about its environmental impact. He tells you plainly and sincerely what works best for your total healthphysically, mentally, and emotionally. As a producer of landmark and controversial videos, audiotapes, CD’s and books on this topic, I know the kind of guts it takes for Larry to produce a book of this magnitude, frankness, and tell-it-like-it-is helpfulness. As a champion of using natural methods as a useful and valid component of addressing medical and psychiatric conditions, I wholeheartedly recommend this book to you.
