About the Author

Christopher Vasey, N.D., is a naturopath specializing in detoxification and rejuvenation. He is the author of several books, including The Acid-Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health, Liver Detox, and Natural Remedies for Inflammation. He lives near Montreux, Switzerland.


"Ancient Chinese physicians believed that a competent healer had no need to cut into the body; herbal poultices, acupuncture, water treatments, and herbal brews were the mark of the advanced practitioner. In this book, we are given a glimpse of modern cures that do not involve violence to the physical form. With simple and easy-to-follow directions, Dr. Vasey shows us how to use the skin, our largest organ of elimination, to effect a cure. This book includes many commonsense precautions and a well-crafted collection of compresses and applications for common injuries and conditions, many of which involve foods we already have in the kitchen like potatoes, onions, and lemons. I highly recommend this book!" * Ellen Evert Hopman, author of Secret Medicines from Your Garden and A Druid's Herbal of Sacred *
"Vasey gives a concise overview of the skin and associated biological processes, which is helpful for those without an education in natural health or a background in biology. An ideal family go-to guide." * Nexus Magazine, June/July 2019 *
