Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: It’s a self-help-health book. Say that ten times.
Q: What is the book about?
A: It’s about enjoying the fun and intrigue of unraveling nature’s clues that fill you with awe, inspiration, and healing. This fascinating book combines ancient wisdom with modern research, and science with imagination. Connect to the wonder you felt as a child, and emulate how Nature wisely deals with change and adversity.
Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: I am a recovering “learning addict” who ultimately discovered that the answers to most of life’s questions are found in nature’s genius. I’m a nutritionist with a Ph.D. in naturopathy (alternative medicine), a master’s degree in psychology, a nutrition degree, and a LEED™ (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accreditation. I combine all these fields to give you the dirt on nature.
Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: It’s really a one-of-a kind book. It’s not a nature book because most people think of nature books as photos of the forests, mountains, and sea. It’s entirely different from all other nature, and health books too, because it presents nature as your nurturer, health coach, and mentor, and yet it’s easy and fun to read.
We can take advice from motivational speakers who have been around maybe 50 years versus Nature who’s been around 4 billion years. It’s time we learn to listen to our mom—Mother Nature. Your “mother” really does know best!
Einstein said, “Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better.” The more you know about nature, the more you’ll understand yourself and others. So after reading this book, you’ll see things in a whole new light.
Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: Losing touch with nature and contact with the earth can make you feel more stressed and depressed. The EPA estimates that Americans spend about 90% of their day indoors.
University of Illinois research shows that children who were outdoors more exhibit a dramatic reduction in the symptoms of ADD. The average child recognizes more than a hundred corporate logos but can’t name ten types of plants.
Our bodies are designed to be in touch with nature. When people who are depressed garden and get their hands in dirt, their depression lessens.
My sincere wish is that Nature becomes your true friend and mentor, and that this book fills you with many “awe-ha” moments. Mother Nature’s profound wisdom is right outside your front door and is free!
