About Julie Maree Wood
Julie Maree Wood is Sydney-based, high-profile naturopath and nutritionist, mum and former ad executive who is on a mission to make the best complementary medicine has to offer more accessible. Her ABC book, Feeding Fussy Kids (October 2009) won the Best Children and Family Cookbook (Australia) at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.
60 Seconds is a handy, pocket-sized book with some great tips to de-stress and bring some peace into your life. The book is written by a practicing naturopath who shares the wealth of her knowledge in practical techniques for everyday use. The book is broken into; The Secrets for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, and the Nutrient Table.
Some of the “Secrets” for relaxation include, Nose breathing, Dairy-free day, Memory Music, and Beans means Health, just to name a few. Each page contains a new technique to study and test out, with full colour images to assist in the study.
As the techniques are very modern age in style, this book will definitely appeal to those with this philosophy and belief system. There will be many that flick through the pages and dismiss it as new-age hippy nonsense, so it is worth reviewing before you invest in this book for either yourself or a friend or relative.
