Leaf to Life: The Natural Approach to Slow Down Aging and Living a Healing Life

Book Overview
Sebastian Liew, one of the most unique and talented practitioners of natural healing and herbalism. Matthew Wood, MSc (Herbal medicine) Registered Herbalist (AHG), author of Earthwise Herbal Sebastian's mom gave birth to him when she was forty-five. By the time he was in his twenties, his parents were already in their seventies. As a result, he was required to perform all the household errands and take care of his then-elderly parents in his younger years. Sebastian was very closed to his parents. They were like friends. They could share almost everything, from their ex-girl/boyfriends, traditional Cantonese jokes to constant anguish, late-life crisis, and of course physical disabilities (spinal arthritis, age-related hearing loss, fatigue etc.). As a past volunteer in an elderly home, he was constantly exposed to many elderly people and witnessed the physical and psychological dysfunctions, and most of all, the pain of their ageing process, the mental and spiritual conflicts in their inner world, and the tremendous stress of their caregivers. However, in the process, he also learned what are the factors that keep some elderly people healthy, happy, and a longer life. Let's face the facts: -Our citizen population is ageing rapidly; -80% of adults aged 65 and older have at least one chronic disease such as Alzheimer's disease, sarcopenia, diabetes, heart failure etc.; -Most chronic diseases are a result of the ageing process; -Anti-ageing is a myth. However, ... -Slowing down the ageing process is possible. It is science-proven -Premature ageing is a holistic problem. It requires a holistic solution. On the other hand, we want to: -Remain independent as we age; -Ability to be mobile, grow, learn, and make decisions; -Build and cultivate good relationships; -Have energy, the sharpness of the mind, and good mood; -Make contributions to society. Now, based on years of research, observations, and over a decade of clinical practice in phytotherapy, Sebastian wish to share with you the good news that you can apply proven natural and holistic solutions to slow down the ageing process and live a healing life. This book is not only for those who are fifty-five years and above. It is a must for everyone and... Sebastian's advice to all young adults out there - Nothing in life is 100% certain, except we are ageing at every moment. If you wish to enjoy a healthy and happy life for all the years to come, it is necessary to start learning How and Now Find this holistic solution in Leaf to Life(R). Acclaim for Leaf to life: I recommend this wise, comprehensive, and thoughtful work to all who are serious about the practice of Western herbal and natural healing, regardless of whether they need healing or are practitioners desiring to deepen their understanding of this wonderful art and science. -Matthew Wood, MSc (Herbal medicine), Registered Herbalist (AHG), author of The Earthwise Herbal This book provides some wonderful insights and practical advice from the knowledge base of both Eastern and Western healing traditions. - Professor Kerry Bone, School of Applied Clinical Nutrition, New York Chiropractic College - USA For the first time in history, the healing systems of the East and the West have been unified in a book... I am impressed with how Sebastian has combined Hildegard's (St Hildegard of Bingen) ideas with traditional wisdom and modern science in his effective treatment of his patients in Singapore. As he puts it, Healing is a journey. Good health is a path for us to discover our true potential and our inner compass to live a full life in Body, Mind, and Spirit. -Dr Wighard Strehlow, PhD, author of Hildegard Medicine
